ENERGY

At the center of all RISE wellness programming lies a sacred reverence for the energy that is within us and all around us. The qi of Taoism, the rlung of Tibetan Buddhism, and prana in Hinduism all seek to describe the sum total of this energy that is manifest in the universe. Energy is everywhere and it permeates and connects all things. Every aspect of the RISE Guest Experience endeavors to amplify this flow, and foster conscious awareness.

CORE TREATMENTS

Our treatment menu draws from ancient healing practices as well as modern wellness modalities to create a core program of bodywork based on the power of energy, vibration, and frequency.

“For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.”
– Aristotle

Upon guests’ return home, this is reinforced via access to RISE’s open access online learning studio.

A variety of yoga applications are led by resident masters, along with group and individual guided meditation sessions. Together, these mind-body practices represent a central component of the RISE philosophy and a core element of the wellness programming.
