Following the success of the inaugural fitness event “The Art of Muay Thai” held on 29 June on the Bintang Steps along Jalan Gading, Starhill Gallery once again teams up with swanky European bakery Le Petit Rococo Café to organise the next fitness event “Fitness In The City” on 21 July 2018 at 9am. The morning free-for-public exercise session on the Bintang Steps is organised in line with the athleisure trends amongst millennials and to gather the fitness community in the heart of Bukit Bintang.
In collaboration with Kuala Lumpur’s trendy yoga studio, Our Body Space, “Fitness In The City” offers creative ways to invigorate the body and improve overall health with Yoga and Qi Gong. Participants will be trained under the expert coaching of Olivier Di Tullio, a French-Malaysian Yoga and Qi Gong teacher. During the three-hour session, the participants will learn about the flow of Qi within the human body through the ancient mapping of its meridians, Eight Brocades of Qi Gong techniques to discover and cultivate your own Qi (energy), and basic Hatha Yoga moves for light strengthening and deep stretching to open up your body and free your emotion. Olivier will also give a talk on the internal energies that keeps the body strong and the seven chakras that affect your emotions.
“In this age of high-tech and automation, time is of the essence and people feel the pressure of a shortage of time. The only way we can free ourselves from the burden of past and future is by accessing the timelessness, which can only be found within and in the here and now. Only when the mind is silent can we know real peace, joy, love and creativity to find solution to our problems. We become much more resilient to stress and enjoy greater mental clarity,” said Olivier.
An engineer by profession, Olivier first started studying Tai Chi and Qi Gong in Singapore eight years ago. Upon his return to Malaysia, his thirst for knowing more about ancient holistic practices strengthened which led him to study Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga. As a Yoga and Qi Gong teacher for more than three years now, he simply seeks to improve the well-being of his students.
“Fitness In The City” is part of the series of upcoming unique events to be held along the Bintang Steps. To encourage participation from Starhill Gallery shoppers and visitors, Bedat & Co is extending a discount of 25% off for all collections for the first 100 participants.
