Edited by Travel Weekly


    COMO Uma Canggu has invited boxing enthusiasts to an intensive six-day boxing camp, led by world champion boxers Darren Barker and Ryan Pickard, this October.

    Participants will master the fundamentals of boxing, improve their self-defence skills, and transform their fitness regimen. Under the expert guidance of world-class boxers, attendees will undergo a variety of workouts and exercises while immersing themselves in the bohemian charm of Canggu.

    As nutrition also plays a crucial role in the experience, participants will partake in COMO Shambhala cuisine with a nutritious and satisfying menu that ensures they get the right kinds of food to support their training.

    The elegant accommodation at COMO Uma Canggu offers rooms with ocean or lagoon pool views, providing a luxurious setting for relaxation. After intense training sessions, guests can unwind at the COMO Shambhala Retreat wellness centre, enjoying massages and treatments designed to soothe weary muscles.

    The schedule is designed to balance rigorous training with ample relaxation with each day beginning with core exercises and meditation to set a positive mindset. Boxing sessions focus on the fundamentals of footwork, defence, and authentic training. Afternoons include diverse activities such as jogs along the beach, old-school circuit training, and technical boxing drills. Evenings are reserved for dinner and relaxation, with options for COMO Shambhala massages to rejuvenate the body.

    The retreat is on from 22-27 October. There will also be a program for kids, The Little Boxers Camp, from 17 to 21 October where children can learn new skills, discipline, and ignite a desire for a healthier life through sports.
