Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley Partners with Fluidform Pilates

Wellness in the Wilderness

Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley has announced an exciting addition to its current wellness offering, created in partnership with leading Sydney-based Pilates studio, Fluidform. To celebrate the collaboration, Fluidform founder and renowned Australian Pilates instructor Kirsten King will host an exclusive wellness weekend at the resort from the 20th to 22nd November this year.

Nestled in a private valley with sweeping views of the Blue Mountains, Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is a wilderness wellness oasis where guests can escape urban pressures, regenerate, and restore in a stunning bushland setting. The two-day Fluidform wellness escape will give guests the opportunity to reconnect mind, body, and spirit with a series of bespoke Pilates classes, tailored to different levels, with one of Australia’s leading practitioners. Over the weekend, guests will enjoy brunch with Kirsten, and share in her passion for the art of Pilates and its ability to transform lives. They will also have access to the resort’s state-of-the-art gymnasium, sauna, and steam room, as well as signature treatments at the award-winning One&Only Spa. Optional one-on-one sessions with Kirsten are also available on request.

Once in their private villas, guests are encouraged to use Fluidform at Home’s selection of custom Pilates workouts - ranging from ten minutes to an hour – for personal practice, with a Fluidform equipment pack including sliders, resistance bands and a Pilates ball. The in-villa Fluidform experience will be complimentary for all guests from September, including a Fluidform membership during their stay, a thoughtful addition to the amenities at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley.

“A visit to Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is a chance for our guests to relax and rejuvenate,” says Tim Stanhope, General Manager. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Kirsten King and the Fluidform team to create a comprehensive wellness experience that guests can enjoy in our beautiful valley, and hopefully carry the benefits into their everyday lives when they return home.”

Kirsten King is a passionate advocate for the functional and aesthetic benefits that Pilates can bring to the human form. Established in 2012, combining highly personalized programming with in-depth technical knowledge, Fluidform offers a supportive and engaging approach to Pilates that swiftly creates physical and mental change. Kirsten and her team tailor workouts to improve everyday function, rehabilitation after injury or surgery and pre- and post-natal fitness. All levels and needs will be catered for throughout the Wellness in the Wilderness weekend.

“I am excited to be hosting this very special weekend at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley. At Fluidform, our focus is to make a meaningful impact on both mind and body. I’m looking forward to being immersed in nature and to sharing my passion for Pilates and wellness with everyone in a truly unique setting, helping them to feel a true sense of wellness,” commented Kirsten King.

Combining ultra-luxury with a quintessential Australian bush experience, Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is a world-leading example of carbon neutral conservation and sustainable design. Occupying just one percent of a

7,000-acre wildlife reserve, the resort is located between two national parks in the World Heritage listed Greater Blue Mountains, a mere 2.5 hours’ drive from Sydney on Australia’s Great Diving Range. With a range of luxurious, holistic treatments, the resort’s One&Only Spa offers experiences ranging from pure relaxation to unique wellness journeys. In addition to Fluidform Pilates, guests can embrace such therapies as Sound Therapy, harnessing the vibration and power of sound to slow down the thinking mind and bring a sense of complete relaxation.

The Fluidform Pilates wellness weekend will be available for guests to book directly through the website. For reservations or more information about Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, please visit oneandonlyresorts.com.
