Participate in Rooftop Pilates and Eat Authentic French Gluten-free Food at THE LIVELY OSAKA HONMACHI on Sunday, November 19!

The wellness event “THE LIVELY OSAKA HONMACHI Rooftop Pilates” will be held on Sunday, November 19, 2023 on the rooftop terrace on the 14th floor of THE LIVELY OSAKA HONMACHI.

Making hotels a “place to update yourself”

The LIVELY HOTELS brand concept is to provide “experiential value,” where guests can update themselves through their stay, rather than the simple functional value of a conventional hotel, which is simply a place to sleep. The flagship brand, THE LIVELY, redefines the hotel as a place where people, information and opportunities gather from all over the world and aims to provide a guest experience that is full of stimulation and new discoveries every time they visit, not only for overnight guests but also for local residents and people who are interested in the hotel.

Last autumn, THE LIVELY OSAKA HONMACHI launched a yoga program, “THE LIVELY OSAKA HONMACHI Morning Flow Yoga,” where guests can enjoy a healthy breakfast prepared by a genuine French chef after yoga on the roof-top terrace. The event has been well received by many people who have participated so far, citing it as an experience that allows people to “think about their mind and body.”

Pilates for everyone with instructors who teach famous athletes

Following up the yoga, pilates events will also be held from autumn this year. Enjoy special moments unique to a lifestyle hotel, such as pilates in the unique space of a rooftop terrace, food experiences and community building among participants.

The event will be led by A☆MahaLoa representative Shinji Takenaka, who has extensive experience in teaching and coaching athletes. Wellness sports such as pilates have engaged many females, but it is also recommended for men with stiff muscles.

The venue is the rooftop terrace on the hotel’s top 14th floor. With a view of central Osaka and the morning sun and fresh air, pilates can be enjoyed with a fresh feeling that is different from that of a typical indoor studio. The small class size, with a maximum of eight people, makes it easy to communicate with the instructor and even beginners can join in with ease.

About the Chef

Kohei Nishiura

Trained at restaurants in Kobe, Osaka and France, and has experience as head chef at several French restaurants in Osaka, including the modern French restaurant “La Chic” in Yodoyabashi. He then became head chef at THE LIVELY KITCHEN OSAKA HONMACHI in December 2019. His cuisine is of course French-based, striking a perfect balance between classic and modern, while utilizing seasonal ingredients nurtured by the four seasons of Japan, and keeping in mind the life of the ingredients and the heart of the dish.

Using the taste and knowledge cultivated through his experience, he conveys the charm of the “casual French” cuisine that only THE LIVELY OSAKA HONMACHI can offer, which makes French cuisine more accessible to the public.
