Leave All of Your Stress Behind at Shou Sugi Ban House
How does the idea of completely “checking out” for a stress free afternoon of Hamptons wellness sound to you? An afternoon at the Shou Sugi Ban House is all you need! The stunning destination retreat has embodied global wellness and healing arts since they broke ground last year. Surrounded by over 250 deciduous and evergreen trees, as well as 20,000 grasses of five different varieties, Shou Sugi Ban House is a private, three-acre sanctuary which encompasses thirteen guest studios surrounding the main pool, the Main Barn with a demonstration kitchen; Healing Arts Barn with a tea bar; treatment spa with hydrotherapy pools and roof deck; open-air Movement Pavilion; ceremonial fire circle; fitness center; autumn cherry dining orchard; organic vegetable and herb gardens from which the dining menus are sourced; and a curated library of books.
I recently spent a glorious and restorative afternoon at Shou Sugi Ban House where they are currently promoting a special fall package rate on two custom offerings. Intuitive Movement and Sacred Sound: Intuitive Movement is a practice that expresses itself through various forms of self massage, free movement and stretching.
“The class was created by our resident yoga teacher and therefore each class is tailored to the needs of the individual. Sacred Sound is a multisensory immersion where the practitioner uses an arrangement of tuning forks, gongs and sound bowls to create an ocean of sound and bring the body and mind back into alignment. The combined package will leave you feeling balanced and restored.”
Inspired by Japanese principles of wabi-sabi and a spirit of openness and exploration, Shou Sugi Ban House offers spa, healing arts, nutrition, fitness and complete wellness experiences in a holistic, educational setting. Discreetly luxurious, grounded in sustainability and a deep love for raw natural beauty, Shou Sugi Ban House is an intimate and integrative wellness experience. “We learn from practices, scientific and spiritual, from the world’s greatest wisdom traditions and we are dedicated to sharing them in a genuine way.”
