Following the successes of Virtual Run To Give activation on October 2, 2021, Courtyard By Marriott Bandung Dago held Yoga activities with staff located Courtyard By Marriott Bandung Dago’s pool. This activity will encourage staff to participate in fun events, strengthen relationships between Marriott staff, and also support fundraising.

This Yoga event was held to support the Virtual Run To Give event, which has become an annual Marriott Asia Pacific program and become an integral part of the company’s commitment to cultivating a people-first environment that promotes associates’ well-being. With this event, Marriott drives its people to care for the communities where they do business. This event will be dedicated to raising funds for the Bali Children Foundation as well as Marriott staff, who have been significantly impacted by the downturn in business during the pandemic.

Nowadays, yoga has become a lifestyle. Seeing this condition, Andi Bagistav Oddek as General Manager of Courtyard by Marriott Bandung Dago said “Yoga is the best way to do right here. Through this event, we want to invite the staff to take their much-needed escape from the all-limiting at-home and work routine for their health and well-being. At the same time, we aim to help the affected people in need by joining the virtual run and to raise funds to donate at Virtual Run To Give 2021”.

Meanwhile, the yoga participants claimed that they were interested and proud to participate in this yoga event that could support Virtual Run To Give 2021. They also hope that next year they can participate in this event again because doing yoga can make their minds calmer and their emotions controlled. This yoga activity lasts about 60 minutes. The staff seemed to mingle on their respective carpets and enliven this event. Accompanied by instrumental music, the staff performs yoga movements from sukhasana or sitting cross-legged, tree pose, or standing position with one leg folded to the thigh of the other leg and other yoga movements.
