The Zehen Mode (entry: members only)
Zehen, a brand-new private members’ club, is where Delhi’s over-worked, fast-paced folks are heading for a mind, body, and health overhaul!
Zehen at The Manor, in New Friends Colony, isn’t just a club, it’s a fully loaded, health-fitness-social retreat. For one, it’s terribly exclusive—this is an invitation-only private club. Then there’s the fact that Zehen is seriously focused on your health—each member is introduced to the Zehen Circuit, and taken through a health, fitness, and diet consultation. When the Cosmo Ed stopped by, she was first taken to the intentionally-industrial gym to meet Fitness Advisor Vesna Jacob, who assessed her fitness levels and checked for posture flaws. Next, a chat with Zehen’s in-house Ayurvedic doctor, Dr Purnima, and nutritional therapist Kay Van Beersum. The doctors work in tandem, and after a quick pulse check and a bunch of diet-andlifestyle questions, managed to pinpoint the exact problems and treatments! After a consultation, members can visit the top floor for an authentic Ayurvedic massage, complete with a wooden steam cupboard. The massages here are treated as therapies, so the oils and ingredients used are based on your previous consultation with the doctors (the Cosmo Ed tried one and swears by it). But that’s not all—there’s also a hydrotherapy room which offers a Watsu water massage; an activity studio with meditation, pilates, yoga and more; in-house healers for reiki and crystal healing, and international salon Warren Tricomi (they offer a mean blowdry, BTW). And then, there’s the glorious food—gourmet, delicious, and guilt free, created by Chef Manish Mehrotra of Indian Accent.
It’s clear to see that Zehen is many things. But the one standout thing about it is the unforgettable experience. Visit zehen.com for more information, or call 011 43235151/00.
