Healing Hotels of the World taps Marina Efraimoglou and Mahesh Natarajan to host masterclasses on healing in hospitality

We hope these masterclasses will inspire hoteliers to embark on their healing hospitality journey with us in order to empower guests to become whole in body, mind and spirit
– Elisabeth Ixmeier

Global consortium of holistic hotels, resorts and retreats Healing Hotels of the World is hosting two online webinars aimed at finding answers as to how people can travel consciously as they face the effects of climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Free of charge, the classes will be hosted by Healing Hotels co-founders Anne Biging and Dr Elisabeth Ixmeier, alongside business expert and Healing Summit co-founder Claudia Roth and media host Valerie Smaldone.

Each class will feature insight into best practices around healing hospitality while dealing with the pandemic from two Healing Hotels partners; Marina Efraimoglou, CEO and founder of Euphoria Retreat in Greece, and Mahesh Natarajan, COO of Ananda in the Himalayas in India.

“Customer demand for healing hospitality is at an all-time high, at the same time we live in contradictory and challenging times. With these masterclasses, we want to explore how a challenge can be turned into an opportunity,” says Biging.

“We believe that conscious travel and a holistic and healing-focused guest experience can make a difference. We’ll give insights into best practices from two of our most successful Healing Hotels of the World members.”

The first masterclass with Efraimoglou is targeted at hoteliers in the US, Americas and Europe. It will take place on 23 September from 5-6PM CET (Berlin, Germany).

The second masterclass with Natarajan for hoteliers in Asia and Europe will be held on 24 September, between 11AM – 12PM CET (Berlin, Germany).

Both masterclasses will look at how incorporating Healing Excellence Standards across every aspect of a hotel can benefit guests and personnel alike, and how integrating a conscious notion of travel can be a gamechanger for the hospitality industry as well as for the responsibility we maintain towards our planet.

“Healing Hotels of the World stands for responsible behaviour in business, and at its core lies the idea of a holistic, conscious lifestyle,” says Ixmeier.

“Our mission is to provide guests with extraordinary places so that they can tap into their inner power and begin their own personal healing journey.

“We hope these two masterclasses will inspire hoteliers to embark on their healing hospitality journey with us in order to empower even more guests on their path to become whole in body, mind and spirit.”
