Recognizing that wellness for the body and mind is becoming a priority for travelers while also inviting guests to further engage with the resort’s beautiful and preserved natural surroundings, The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort introduces Be Here, Be Now – meditation experience in partnership with meditation expert Michael Miller, Director of New York Meditation Center.
Be Here, Be Now offers guests access to Miller’s meditation expertise and provides them with guidance to fully connect with the property’s peaceful, stunning and natural surroundings to achieve ultimate relaxation.
The resort, which is nestled on a former coconut plantation and situated between the El Yunque Rainforest and Espiritu River, is Puerto Rico’s first and only certified Gold Audubon International Signature Sanctuary and presents a multitude of tranquil environments where one can meditate or simply slow down and unwind.
For Be Here, Be Now, Miller provided simple and powerful techniques that guests can practice to further relax and settle their mind during their stay. Presented in a beautiful brochure presented to all guests of The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort, the content has been tailored to the resort and its surroundings. From an introduction that suggests guidelines such as turning off one’s mobile device to exercises that activate the senses and release physical stress, the Be Here, Be Now brochure helps guide the mind and body into a balanced state and connects the guest with the property’s striking environment. It also offers advice on how to apply the Be Here, Be Now experience to one’s daily life upon returning home. Additionally, Miller has identified Be Here, Be Now locations throughout the property that are perfectly matched to the individual techniques one will find in the brochure.
Be Here, Be Now sites range from a hidden nook discovered along a nature trail to a spot on the beach overlooking the ocean. They are noted on the resort’s property map and are also marked with a plaque so guests can easily locate them at their convenience.
Be Here, Be Now can supplement a regular meditation practice or act as an introduction for guests who have not yet learned to meditate. By using the principles of ease and effortlessness found in Vedic Meditation, Miller directs guests in exercises that bring them fully into the present moment. Meditation is increasingly seen as a vital aspect of health and wellness.
Scientific research on meditation shows many benefits, including: reduced tension and anxiety; increased resistance to stress; improved memory and concentration; increased energy; improved physical health; reduced insomnia; increased self-esteem; and slower aging.
