With travel plans disrupted and postponed due to the pandemic, people have become more conscious about their health and wellness. Cabin fever was inevitable last year, which is why Aegle Wellness Center came up with Serenity Series—an immune-boosting wellness retreat at Balesin Island.
Aegle’s Serenity Series is a succession of wellness weekends in the private paradise of Balesin Island, dedicated to revitalizing the mind and body. Each weekend is designed to be a life-changing experience with various wellness activities, complemented by Aegle’s world-class medical services and treatments to boost not only the immune system, but one’s well-being.
In 2020, Aegle had five wellness weekends with varying activities—Tai Chi, Kundalini Yoga + Gong Bath, Vinyasa Yoga, Zumba, and Pilates—led by skilled instructors. These activities were conducted at different venues on the island, which made each class more exciting and rejuvenating as each had a unique ambiance and beauty.
This 2021, monthly Serenity Series weekends will be held to give guests a relaxing and recharging time at Aegle – Balesin. Aegle has dedicated the first quarter of the year to yoga—Vinyasa, Yin, and Bikram. Succeeding months will focus on photography, water activities—such as diving—and more fitness classes.
Safety precautions and guidelines are in place for a worry-free wellness retreat—from the private hangar lounge to the UV-treated luxury villas that guests will be staying in during the weekend. Guests are required to do an Antigen Swab Test which they have to get at Aegle – Makati not more than five days prior to their trip to ensure that Balesin remains COVID-free.
Serenity Series guests will get the full Aegle – Balesin experience, for each group will have their own dedicated wellness time. The Serenity Series weekends include Manila-Balesin Island round-trip airfare, one COVID-19 Antigen Swab Test, luxurious villa accommodation in Balesin for three days and two nights, daily healthy gourmet breakfast, and the following Aegle services and treatments: Body Composition Analysis to gauge your body’s fat and muscle content; Direct Micronutrient Analysis to determine if there are harmful toxins in your body; Light Therapy to stimulate your brain’s hormone secretion and help your body in its rest and repair; and Autonomic Nervous System Stress Response Test to get an overview of your nervous system and stress threshold, just by lying down for three minutes.
Guests can also choose from either Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy—helps expedite cell repair and regeneration through pure oxygen—or an Immune Boost IV Drip session that will support and power up the body’s defenses against sickness and viruses. Guests are also entitled to select an aesthetics treatment: a Local Fat-reduction slimming treatment on one body area (face, arms, tummy, back, or thighs) or FaceFitness—an Aegle-exclusive treatment and the Philippines’ first facial workout designed to keep the face healthy, toned, and young-looking.
Guests are also given a 30-day supply of Immune Booster Packs—a set of formulated supplements that contain the highest appropriate levels of vitamins B12, C, D-3, and E, and zinc to boost your immune system to its optimum level.
In addition, guests get to experience Thalassotherapy—a treatment that makes use of seawater and its natural elements for detoxification, anti-ageing, and regeneration. Aegle – Balesin is the only facility in the Philippines, and one of very few in Asia, that offers Thalassotherapy. Guests also have time to explore the island and its villages that are authentically patterned after the best seaside destinations around the world.
Serenity Series weekend guest Lisa Wenceslao shared, “It was beyond—leaps and bounds. I wanted to recommend it to all my friends and family! It was supposed to be more for R&R—beach and lovely food at Balesin, but with the Aegle treatments, it truly centered around mindful wellness. [I] had a better appreciation for my body and health, had a better understanding on how to take care of it, and enjoyed the benefits of the natural approach to medicine. To top it off, the supplements are such a nice touch to ensure we sustain our immune strength.”
