Wellness enthusiasts and conscious travelers may already be familiar with Fivelements, the wellness lifestyle company behind award-winning wellness destination Fivelements Retreat Bali. A company which aims at bridging the wisdom of traditional healing cultures with innovative wellness concepts. I’ve been dreaming of visiting their Bali property for ages but haven’t yet been able to (but it’s like way up on my list!). While waiting for my next trip to Bali, I’ve been lucky enough to discover Fivelements’ latest project which just launched in Times Square: Fivelements Habitat, an urban wellness sanctuary focused on bringing yoga, sacred arts and plant-based cuisine to city centers. 
 
Let’s meet in Times Square so that I can take you on a quick tour of this amazingly beautiful and huge (15,000 sqft) venue. The minute you walk-in, you feel like entering a peaceful sanctuary thanks to the design, the incredible amount of natural light gracing the place and the unique sound atmosphere. While taking me on a tour, Chicco Tatriele (Co-Founder and Managing Director of Fivelements) was explaining how the entire sound ambience has been designed to make you forget the lack of nature around Times Square and bring a touch of Bali bliss to the place. I can tell you it’s working! I spent a few hours at Fivelements Habitat and it almost felt like I’ve been on a getaway!
