Capella Singapore presents the Heritage Superfoods Wellness Retreat

Nourish and energise with award-winning Auriga spa

Singapore, 26 May 2016 This April, embark on a nourishing and rejuvenating experience with Auriga spa at the Heritage Superfoods Wellness Retreat. Set against the iconic colonial backdrop of ultra-luxurious Capella Singapore, guests will be invited to discover the healing powers of Heritage Superfoods with Sandra Lim, a certified Raw Food Chef and co-founder of Live Fruitfully, a company that provides cooking classes on the preparation of wholesome, minimally-processed plant foods.

The Heritage Superfoods Wellness Retreat places emphasis on the natural healing and energizing properties of Heritage Superfoods. This revitalizing experience starts off with a mindful movement stretching class under the early morning sun at Bob’s Bar’s alfresco terrace. This is followed by a cooking class at the Chef’s Table, the hotel’s designer home- styled kitchen. Attendees will participate in a hands-on raw food cooking class which educates on how to prepare wholesome dishes incorporating Asian-inspired plant-based ingredients that are both sugar and gluten free. Through this valuable five hour journey, guests will embark on an invigorating process of renewal, designed to ground and inspire.

The Heritage Superfoods Wellness Retreat concludes with a Superfood Spa Therapy Treatment where guests can complete their journey with the use of Auriga spa’s luxurious heat and water facilities. The Superfoods Spa Therapy Treatment features Asian Superfoods which are renowned for their healing and nurturing benefits on the body when applied externally. Guests will enjoy a body massage and nourishing hair treatment using extra virgin coconut oil of the highest quality. After which, freshly-grated ginger is applied on the body to relief tired back muscles and improve microcirculation. The treatment also includes an ultra-hydrating aloe vera facial gel mask and green tea eye compress to brighten dark circles and reduce eye puffiness.

Sandra leads a plant-based diet and is a certified Raw Food Chef from The Matthew Kenney Culinary Institute. Apart from majoring in Biotechnology and Nutrition, she is also a Pilates instructor and advocates that the formula to good health and happiness is simple: daily exercise, eat fresh, wholesome, unaltered food and sunshine.
