Sensei launches golf and tennis optimal wellbeing programs.
Building on the success of the Optimal Wellbeing Program (OWP) that launched in February at the secluded Hawaiian wellness retreat, Sensei Lanai, a Four Seasons Resort, to enhance overall health and wellbeing, Sensei will now apply the same data and programs to two new sports performance packages for golf and tennis enthusiasts looking to improve their overall health, productivity and game.
Sensei Retreats, the first of which is Sensei Lānaʻi, A Four Seasons Resort, is where people come to learn the Sensei Way. Located in the most luxurious and inspiring setting, each guest’s stay is led by Sensei Guides and practitioners who hold degrees in their respective fields including exercise science, nutrition, and mindfulness, and is highly customized to help align guest’s actions with their intentions. Highlights include private wellness consultations, small indoor and outdoor classes, relaxing treatments in individual 1000-square-feet spa hales, island adventures and innovative dining guided by the Sensei nutritional philosophy. Additional amenities are expansive tropical gardens decorated with outdoor sculptures by renowned artists, state-of-the-art fitness and yoga facilities, tranquil lagoon-inspired outdoor pool, secluded outdoor onsen baths, nearby hiking, island activities and more.
“The launch of OWP was such a success that we wanted to expand the use of the data captured through WHOOP wearable technology and our on-site diagnostics as well as the guidance offered by our practitioners to help guests achieve and sustain their wellness goals,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of Sensei. “With premier tennis and world-class oceanfront golf on Lanai, our guests will apply our data-driven OWP techniques to enhance their skills through a highly tailored itinerary designed by our Sensei Guides and sports instructors.”
The tailored programs are not traditional tennis or golf clinics, but an integration of Sensei’s popular Optimal Wellbeing Program (OWP) with sports instruction. As with the original OWP, technology is leveraged to track and analyze each guest’s unique health data, as well as consultation with exercise physiologists, nutritionists and mindfulness coaches and other practitioners. That data, including a wearable device through a partnership with WHOOP, the human performance company, is then layered in with additional golf and tennis performance metrics through detailed video analysis and instruction. Guests are supported at every step from goal setting to daily practices with an integrated team of Sensei Guides, wellness practitioners and golf and tennis professionals who incorporate the Sensei philosophy — distilling the wellbeing journey into three simple paths for healthier living: Move, Nourish and Rest.
