Get Set…Sweat – The Sanchaya Welcomes Fitness Enthusiasts

Committed to offering an unparalleled guest experience through an ongoing programme of experts in residence, The Sanchaya has announced plans for two upcoming fitness residencies in September. The stylish, beach-front property is well suited to athletic guests, with a fully-equipped gym and a range of adventurous activities, such as BloKart sailing and OneWheel+ riding.

The second annual Bintan Marathon will be taking place from Saturday 7th to Sunday 8th September; the 21.1km half-marathon and 42.195km full-marathon routes will take participants around the scenic Lagoi Bay – the scenic area that surrounds the estate. Throughout the marathon weekend, The Sanchaya will welcome Singapore-based Yogi, Camilla Knight, who will be on hand to offer pre-race yoga and post-marathon deep stretching classes for runners to help ease tired and aching muscles.

Camilla has been practicing yoga for over 15 years, and is passionate about sharing the physical and emotional benefits of the practice that she has experienced. Yoga can be vital in helping to prevent injury caused by sporting performance, as well as increasing performance by assisting with nerves and helping to stretch muscles. Designed to reenergize and refuel, the Estate Super Salad – frisee, romaine, rocket salad, quinoa, cucumber, smoked chicken, tomato and Vegan Crunch Salad – chickpea, lentil, quinoa, cherry tomato, cucumber are packed with nutrients and proteins to assist marathon recovery.

Further boosting their commitment to wellbeing, The Sanchaya will welcome Singapore-based athlete, Natalie Dau, from Wednesday 18th September to Sunday 22nd September. Natalie is the founder of global media platform The Daily Escape, as well as the highly successful RockstarFit App. She is a Reebok sponsored athlete and an ambassador and spokesperson for lifestyle brands including Sports Singapore, ClassPass and Polar Watches. Aside from travelling the world to host wellness retreats, Natalie is a highly accomplished athlete, having represented Asia at multiple Spartan Race World Championships. She is also an Asia Masters Athletics Champion, and an Asia age-group CrossFit champion. A qualified Trainer and accredited Sports Nutritionist, Natalie will be holding daily outdoor group classes, which can be adapted to suit participants of varying fitness levels.
