Sensei Expands Wellness Offerings

Sensei has launched “Rest & Recovery,” its newest well-being program focused on sleep and stress management. Available for booking at both Sensei retreats, Sensei Lānaʻi, a Four Seasons Resort and Sensei Porcupine Creek, the program is designed to help guests develop practices to restore balance in the mind and body, create space for self-reflection and develop a framework for managing stress in their everyday life.

In this five-day program, guests will work with their Sensei Guide and a team of practitioners to analyze their current physical and mental state, learn stress management techniques and reframe their perceptions of their personal movement, nourishment and rest practices. Using data captured by a complimentary WHOOP 4.0 band, each guest’s Sensei Guide will help interpret key biomarkers of rest and recovery, including sleep quality, heart rate variability, blood pressure and heart rate recovery.

The “Rest & Recovery” program introduces two new "1:1" sessions, including Sensory Eating 1:1 and Sleep 1:1, as well as an in-depth My Recovery.

  • Sleep 1:1: During this private session, a Sensei Guide will analyze the variables that are impacting a guest’s sleep using information from their personal life and data from wearables to inform the discussion.
  • Sensory Eating 1:1: Through dishes prepared at the Sensei by Nobu kitchen, and facilitated by a Nutrition Guide, guests can understand the importance of a restful state of mind and body during mealtime to promote appetite, facilitate digestion and beget healthy eating habits.
  • My Recovery: Guests will explore the range of their body’s stress responses as they are guided through gentle cognitive exercises, measuring key biomarkers in real-time such as heart rate variability and heart rate recovery. Facilitated by a Mindset Guide, guests will learn how to influence their personal recovery using tools such as focused breathwork and guided imagery.

The “Rest & Recovery” program includes:

  • Five nights in wellness-oriented, open-concept accommodations (additional nights may be added separately)
  • Personal consultation with a Sensei Guide and Pre-Arrival Specialist to curate the guest’s itinerary up to 60 days prior to arrival
  • The pre-arrival process includes a WHOOP 4.0 strap with a twelve-month membership, mailed to the guest’s home
  • Three guided sessions including My Intention, My Recovery and My Plan
  • Three private sessions including Sensory Eating 1:1 and Sleep 1:1 and a choice between several 1:1 Mindful Movement sessions including yoga, forest bathing, hiking and tai chi (varies by location)
  • Two 90-minute spa treatments
  • Unlimited group classes including fitness, meditation, yoga and more
  • Two post-stay phone calls with the guest’s Sensei Guide to check-in on progress towards goals and provide guidance for the future

While both Sensei retreats will offer the new “Rest & Recovery” program, each property will offer unique experiences tailored to the facilities in each location. Guests participating in the program at Sensei Lānaʻi will have access to Lanai Adventure Park. They can participate in forest bathing and tai chi as part of their Mindful Movement 1:1. At Sensei Porcupine Creek, guests can participate in 1:1 yoga classes or a 1:1 guided ridge hike. The program is still evolving and new tailored experiences will continue to be added to the program.
