Good-bye jet-lag

Harnessing the restorative and anti-inflammatory compounds of the cannabis plant, Thailand’s Anantara Spa is on trend with blissful new antidotal treatments for long-haul flyers. Just the ticket—the Restful Slumber Journey. After a relaxing cup of CBD tea, international travellers are pampered with an infused aromatherapy massage followed by a cannabis salt infused food bath and quiet time to take in the resort’s peaceful vibe.



Introduced by practitioner Suzi Teitelman in 2001, “doga” is a bonding experience of doing yoga with your puppy (or dog). The human is called the yogi and the dog, the dogis. Said to be equally beneficial to both you and your dog, a doga session will have you helping your pet strike dog yoga poses and/or keeping your dog nearby as you flow through your yoga routine. Try poses like Heart to Hound Mudra that promotes a transfer of energy between human and pup, trust building puppy paw and the true doga wheelbarrow and you’ll both be heading towards samadi in no time.

In fact, people who own a dog are 54% more likely to get their recommended amount of exercise, and 73% of pet owners admit their dogs have helped keep them fit during the COVID-19 pandemic.
