NewsStandOnline.Net (18-July-2016): This October, in a first for the city, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong will host exclusive classes, one-to-one private therapy sessions, and a weekend retreat package, led by the renowned Naam Yoga pioneer, Anastasia Williams.

The first to introduce Naam and Harmonyum Healing to Australia and now to Asia, Williams brings twenty years of extensive knowledge, practice and study to this unique style of yoga that involves a synthesis of yogic asana (movement), mudra (hand postures), breath, rhythm, stretching, acupressure and vocal vibration infused with Universal Kabbalah.

“Benefits of this style of yoga include balancing brain, glandular, digestive and nervous system functions, reducing emotional and mental disturbances, relieving anxiety and depression and slowing down the aging process.  After all, happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present,” says Helene Almgren, Director of Spa and Wellness of The Oriental Spa.

Naam is suitable for all ages and abilities and, while a weekend retreat will provide long-term benefits, individual classes will also leave attendees feeling revitalized, connected and confident.

Williams also specializes in Harmonyum Healing, a unique gentle form of bodywork that helps connect physical, mental, emotional and energetic intelligence, consciousness and collective functions.  “It is ideal for those seeking healing and insight on a more personalized level with a deep sense of peace, and has been described as akin to 20 years of meditation,” Williams says.
