Celebrate World Wellness Weekend in Antigua and Barbuda

The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority says it is excited to be a part of the World Wellness Weekend celebrations from September 15 to 17, 2023.

World Wellness Weekend is a global event that promotes the United Nations’ third Sustainable Development Goal, “Good Health and Well-being for All,” by emphasizing five pillars of well-being: Sleep & Creativity, Nutrition & Immunity, Movement & Vitality, Mindfulness & Serenity, and Sense of Purpose & Solidarity.

Over 150 countries and 8000 venues will participate in the weekend with free indoor and outdoor activities hosted by World Wellness Weekend Ambassadors, Coordinators, and Wellness Leaders.

The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority (ABTA) is dedicated to promoting the country’s wellness attributes and has partnered with wellness practitioners to enhance and promote the initiative spearheaded by the World Wellness Weekend Ambassadors in Antigua and Barbuda.

The 2023 Wellness Leader in Antigua and Barbuda of World Wellness Weekend Keisha Schahaff – a Health and Life Coach and Astronaut, and World Wellness Weekend Ambassadors Tricia Greenaway – Founder and CEO of Wellness Footprints Antigua, and Alejandro Leo – Wellness & Spa Professional and Sustainability Patron at Jumby Bay will host activities in Antigua and Barbuda.

The activities will include an energizing tai chi session at Darkwood Beach at 7 a.m. and a stress-releasing yoga session at 5 p.m.

The following day, participants can attend a fast-paced socarobics session at the Martello Tower in Barbuda or mat pilates and Vinyasa Flow yoga classes at the Energie Gym in English Harbour from 8 a.m.

The weekend will culminate in an early morning hike starting at 5 a.m. from Galleon Beach, taking a moderate trail to The Blockhouse, followed by yoga at the magical sunrise hour.

Furthermore, as part of the World Wellness Weekend activities, the Tourism Authority has organized nutritional talks at select primary and secondary schools.

The guest speakers include the Queen of Carnival Ischikelle Corbin, Charity Dublin, and other nutritionists from the Ministry of Health, along with a representative from the Barbuda Health and Wellness Clinic.

The ABTA’s Wellness Pillar Lead, Tameka Wharton, said, “World Wellness Weekend allows us to showcase our wellness providers and their services on an international stage.

And, most importantly through our promotion of the activities available within the destination, to encourage our residents and visitors to actively pursue wellness and take advantage of the plethora of wellness offerings in Antigua and Barbuda.”
