From sunrise in Fiji (18 September) until sunset in Hawaii (19 September), hotels, spas, fitness clubs, yoga studios and hot springs around the world are uniting to organise safe, fun and free wellness activities. Outdoor (or online) fitness classes, sunrise or sunset yoga sessions, mindfulness or nutrition workshops (hosted at no charge) will inspire and empower millions of people to enjoy more vitality and serenity with friends and family.”
De Gabriac notes that hospitality groups and iconic venues all over the world are reaching out to local communities to share hope and enthusiasm with millions of people who are suffering physically, mentally or emotionally from the very challenging situation of the pandemic.
