A few months ago Nealy Fischer, a longtime fan of Physique 57, invited us to participate in a Mayya Movement “24-Hour Wellness Transformation at Hong Kong’s five-star W Hotel in May. Mayya is a first-of-its-kind platform aimed at enhancing women’s lives through wellness events while supporting the fight against cancer. All proceeds went to The Karen Leung Foundation, a charity that raises awareness about gynecological cancers.. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to be involved in such a great cause and with so many expat clients living in Hong Kong, we couldn’t wait to explore the city and meet up with old clients while giving back to an amazing organization.

NY instructor, Holly Hendricks, attended the 24-hour wellness event and taught attendees a signature Physique 57 class. Check out what she had to say about her experience and enjoy a few photos from our trip abroad.

“Hong Kong was absolutely fantastic! It’s amazing in that you can go from being in the hustle-bustle of the city, going out to eat, taking the MTR (subway) and shopping in the numerous street markets, to hiking in gorgeous mountains and national parks that feel completely removed. I was so lucky to get the chance to experience all of the above. Bringing Physique 57 to MAYYA Movement was an incredible experience.

To no surprise at all, the women of Hong Kong LOVE Physique 57 and were so excited to be pulsing and squeezing with me at such a fantastic event. Not only was I able to meet and teach such wonderful women that were in attendance (some of which included NYC Physique 57 clients now living in Hong Kong), but the individuals that Nealy brought together to teach and talk at the retreat were amazingly inspiring; yoga and pilates instructors, a functional medicine doctor, a life coach and raw food chef.

Lauren Imparato, of I.Am.You Yoga, and I particularly hit it off. She taught a sweat-inducing, athletic yoga class that was challenging and memorable and definitely gave me motivation to hunt her down once I got home. My husband, Matt, was able to join me for the latter half of my trip and we had a great time enjoying all of the sights, sounds and wonders Hong Kong has to offer!”
