In particular, Singing Ball Meditation is a program that attracts many participants. Singing Ball is well-known as a training method that helps people who are suffering from stress and have difficulty resting even when taking a break. Focusing on speakers that play the sounds that occur when playing balls made of metal, the participants can relax on the mat and experience mental stability.

Participants were also able to experience specialized rehabilitation equipment such as Sling, Hypoxi, Winback, and posture and body correction programs provided by Vista Walkerhill Seoul Wellness Club.

The wellness program of Vista Walkerhill Seoul promotes not only exercise programs but also a healthy diet. Meals should be good for health, but it is not a ‘healthy diet’ that removes the joy of eating. In addition, between programs guests were able to enjoy the foot spa in SKYARD and take full advantage of the wellness opportunities at Vista Walkerhill Seoul.
