Wellbeing is a lifelong journey. A path of small steps and big leaps guided by intuition, awareness, and practice. It’s an exploration of your inner self and your connection to the outside world. Often careful. Sometimes courageous. Always considered. Veya is here to support you along that path.
While everyone’s wellbeing journey is different, there are learnings and practices that universally help us find balance within our body, our mind, and our environment. Veya’s approach to wellbeing composes of a range of multidisciplinary modalities that have been distilled and clarified into 8 universal pathways toward being well – our 8 Pillars of Wellbeing.
Your ever-changing environment presents you with challenges and opportunities that direct your wellbeing journey. Banyan Tree’s proprietary 8 pillars of wellbeing is about sustained and balanced practices, serving as guiding principles throughout life’s journey.
The Veya journey is built on a 3-step protocol of Awareness, Discovery, and Sustenance.
Your journey begins with an individual wellbeing assessment and mapping with a wellbeing host who is certified and trained in Eastern medicine, naturopathy, and coaching. Your host will work with you to create a bespoke program that aligns with your needs and priorities.
Your personal program is curated from the group wellbeing activity calendar with emphasis on mindfulness practices, somatic practices, and lifestyle learning. Daily rituals and mindful practices centre the mind and body. Flexible Veya credits allows you to select and experience a range of purposeful spa therapies, weightless therapy, or individual practice sessions.
A private end-of-stay experience reflection and consultation will guide you to weave new learnings and practices into your lifestyle, so you may continue on your path of wellbeing when you return home. You will have access to a range of online wellbeing practice content to continue a balanced and sustained practice based on the 8 pillars of wellbeing.
