Exercise in Ramadan? More people than ever are saying "yes" to feeling healthy and energised all year round, "yes" to spending more quality time taking part in activities with family and friends, and "yes" to the happy buzz of endorphins that even a gentle workout brings. During Ramadan, the key is to take exercise that is light, manageable and enjoyable – as simple as a short walk.

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is joining the action with the launch of #MoveThisRamadan – an initiative encompassing 15 Four Seasons locations across the Middle East and North Africa, as well as Istanbul and Jakarta. Each property will host weekly wellness activities led by a resident fitness expert, open to both local communities and hotel guests. From jogging to yoga, stretching and strolls – the choice of fitness sessions has been carefully designed taking into consideration local climates and activity levels that are appropriate when fasting.

In addition to enabling people to come together and enjoy exercise, #MoveThisRamadan celebrates the region’s cultural sites and spectacular landscapes with activities that make the most of a stunning collection of locales. Whether it’s joining the group of “Beachside Strollers” at Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach or “City Striders” at Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre, taking a Pranayama class against the stunning skyline of Manama at Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay, or jogging along the Nile with the Cairo Runners and the Four Seasons Egypt Collection, #MoveThisRamadan journeys make a photo-worthy treat at the magical hour of sunset.

Drawing on the Holy Month’s key values of togetherness, sharing and finding inner peace, #MoveThisRamadan supports physical activity as a natural component of everyone’s Ramadan ritual.
