Shanghai is one of the busiest cities in the world and it is no surprise that its inhabitants have taken to carving out quiet spots where they can recharge and rejuvenate. One such place is the Living Room by Octave, the first urban wellbeing centre to open in Shanghai's former French Concession.

If you're looking to escape the bustle of everyday Shanghai, drop by Octave for a meditation class followed by a healthful meal prepared by the chefs at Thought For Food, the center's in-house restaurant.

Besides nourishing the body, the center also runs programmes delivered by licensed naturopaths, medical doctors, and fitness experts — all of which help you to achieve your wellness goals on a holistic level. Yogis will be delighted to find a diverse offering of yoga practices on the programme while those keen to go beyond asanas can sign up for workshops ranging from Wudang martial arts to mindfulness boot camps.
