The James Hotels has announced the launch of Four Bodies Wellness – in-room wellness programming, curated exclusively for guests of The James Hotels. In partnership with consultant Ruby Warrington of The Numinous, the in-room guest programming has been designed to help balance all four bodies; Physical, Mental, Spiritual, and Emotional, in pursuit of total well-being.
Modern life can take its toll in all these areas, resulting in physical issues, mental and emotional stress, and a sense of disconnection from the spirit, self and each other. In offering a Wellness program that addresses each of the four bodies, this next generation fitness program takes a holistic approach to optimizing health and wellness.
“We know our guests are passionate about integrating wellness regimes into their lifestyle. We want to make it easy for them to feel good and balanced, even when on the road. The Four Bodies Wellness program offers an experience unlike any other hotel, and clearly differentiates The James Hotels from other lifestyle boutique hotels”, stated Carl Cohen, Chief Commercial Officer, Denihan Hospitality.
Across all James Hotels including The James Chicago – Magnificent Mile, The James New York – SoHo, and the newly-opened James New York – NoMad, guests will be able to experience the Four Bodies Wellness program through the following offerings:
Physical – In-room TV workout session led by Aerospace Co-Founder Michael Olajide Jr. Guests can utilize their own body strength, or for those seeking a more intense experience, resistance bands will be available on-demand. Guests will also have priority access to the Aerospace studio in Manhattan.
“I like to call the workouts that we do at Aerospace HPC, ‘aggressive meditation’. The James Hotels guests can experience a workout with inherent physical and mental benefits, while moving with purpose and engaging the mind through focus and concentration.” – Michael Olajide
Mental – Complimentary one-month membership to the INSCAPE app. INSCAPE, founded by Khajak Keledjian, merges tradition with technology to curate meditation and relaxation experiences, as well as of-the-moment technology. Guests will also have priority access to the Manhattan studio.
“We have partnered with The James Hotels to empower guests to enhance their stay and overall wellbeing. In as little as three minutes, guests can find balance and clarity, while offsetting the daily stressors of life and travel.” – Khajak Keledjian

The James Hotels is doing just that by integrating Kundalini Yoga into the Four Bodies Wellness program, which allows guests to quickly create a home inside themselves.” – Guru Jagat
Emotional – curated by The Numinous founder, Ruby Warrington, a ‘Readers on Room Service’ menu will be available for guests to book one-to-one sessions with various intuitive counselors, including: Astrology Birth Chart Readings, Transformational Coaching, Tarot Reading, Hypnosis, Reiki Healing, and Sound Healing.
