AT HOME FITNESS WITH DR CARLOS GUTIÉRREZ
During this time of isolation, exercise is key to maintaining a high quality of physical and mental health. Medical Coordinator, Dr. Carlos Gutiérrez explains: ‘Regular moderate exercise is one of the pillars in producing a revitalization of the immune system and therefore of the body’s homeostasis, which means an improvement in the individual’s health and quality of life.’
Those at home can train with SHA’s expert team from the comfort and safety of their homes via the brand’s YouTube channel. With a fervour for long-term life changes, SHA encourages individuals to stay dedicated to their fitness regimes, mapping out a plan for an activity or a series of activities that can be repeated consistently such as those demonstrated in these videos.
SHA’s Fitness Supervisor, Luis Ganso Herranza goes on to explain how important exercise is in this current climate as it ‘improves the functioning of the immune system by reducing the risk of flu or other respiratory diseases, helping to eliminate viruses and bacteria from the airways through the ventilatory activity that occurs during exercise. By exercising regularly, antibodies and white blood cells (leukocytes, which are ‘disease-fighting soldiers’) circulate more rapidly, detecting and neutralizing external attacks.’
HEALTHY NUTRITION WITH MARIÓ LOPEZ
SHA Wellness Clinic’s cookbook is the go-to recipe guide for creating delicious, nutritious and immune-boosting food while staying at home. Complete with chefs’ secrets, insider tips and an array of energy-boosting starters, main courses, desserts, and juices, the SHA Recipes to Live Longer and Better should be a staple cookbook at home.

Recipes are categorised by their purpose, and those looking for a natural cleanse should try the sengiri daikon with kombo and vegetables, while the sautéed hijiki, carrots and onions is the perfect energy boosting dish. Every recipe has been created using evidence from the latest and most prestigious global nutrition studies, meaning healthy living is at the forefront of every meal. The property’s nutrition consultant Mario Lopez explains ‘At this time, it is essential to nourish our bodies with vitamin C and antioxidants, which are vital in boosting the immune system.’
MIND & BODY WITH RACHEL ROSE
Mind and body specialist, Rachel Rose explains: ‘Mood can be improved with proper breathing. By creating a distraction from the conscious body, there is a significant reduction in physiological stress (stress that is generated from the body). Moreover, when the body relaxes, the important communication between body and brain improves’ Meditation has long been revered for reducing stress, promoting emotional health, improving sleep and controlling pain or unrest.
