Combine Nealy’s down to earth five-star hospitality with a selection the world’s best experts in the health and wellness industry and what do you get? An unprecedented gathering of education, wellbeing and pampering to launch MAYYA Movement of course!
Over the 24th and 25th of May 2014, Nealy brought together an empowered community of women for a powerful life changing weekend. The group studied, indulged and connected throughout their experience, departing on Sunday afternoon with tools and the motivation to elevate their health to the next level.
Taking place at the W Hong Kong– the perfect place to learn, unwind, mingle, and enjoy — the MAYYA Movement launch event had a fresh, relaxed and uplifting vibe.
