Mumbai-headquartered Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts is continuing its signature wellness program – Aujasya by The Leela aimed at redefining the road to holistic wellbeing.
A unique blend inspired by traditional and modern practices, Aujasya by The Leela encompasses a collection of authentic experiences that build vivacity and promote the vigour of life, built around the 2 Rs of Wellbeing – Restore (Food) and Renew (Mindfulness). Taking origin from the Sanskrit word, Aujasya – translated as beneficial to strengthening vitality or energy, this initiative allows guests to embrace an enriching and healthy lifestyle.
The brand launched the first pillar, Restore (Food), in collaboration with renowned nutritionist and food consultant, Dr Ankita Jalori. The Leela has re-imagined culinary experiences across its properties by improving the nutritional profile of food menus and offering healthy alternatives. Executive Chef, Simran Singh Thapar at The Leela Palace Bengaluru and Chef Rishabh Anand at The Leela Palace New Delhi along with their culinary teams across India have thoughtfully curated menus to achieve the right balance between guests’ health needs and gastronomic expectations by focusing on millets, lean proteins, low-fat dairy and whole grains.
Anuraag Bhatnagar, Chief Operating Officer, The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts said: “Challenges of the contemporary world and our fast-paced lifestyles often pose a disruption for our overall health. With Aujasya by The Leela, we are embarking on a lifelong commitment to holistic wellbeing, enhancing each of our guests’ stays to create a positive impact in their lives.
Aujasya by The Leela food menu includes wholesome and well-balanced dishes that take into account nutritional values and food synergies. The exciting menu includes dishes that are rich in antioxidants, immunity boosting and are nutrient dense.
The brand will continue to develop the wellness initiative to be a visible and essential offering in all aspects of service, wellness experiences, mindfulness and beyond.
