ScheduleMEDITATION AND YOGA CLASSES
You will start your day with morning meditation learning about and focusing on each chakra over the first seven mornings to help balance the body, mind, and soul connection for overall well being. We have seven chakras in our body which are our internal energy points. When our chakras are blocked, it builds up our internal energy which causes the body, mind and soul to disconnect which can set us up for physical and emotional problems leading to illness, feeling tired, lacking confidence, feeling lost and unmotivated, generally having more negative thoughts. When our chakras are open, the body, mind and soul connection are united and balanced and so the flow of energy flows effortlessly within us where we will feel more positive, productive and healthier.
The morning yoga classes will be Vinyasa flow style with the main focus being on the breath to encourage the calming of the mind and to gain an awareness of a mindful practice, whilst building strength and increasing flexibility within the body. Moving through a flow of sequences will help the body detox as you flow in and out of each asana (pose). The evening classes will be flowing but slower and gentler ending with a mix of pranayama and meditations to help stay present with the mind and breath.
There will also be a workshop style class where you take more time to break down some asanas to help get into them safely and allow you to move deeper into your own personal practice. Each class will be around 75-90 minutes. All classes are suitable for beginners as well as for more seasoned yogis to either help get you started on your yoga and meditation journey or to help deepen your current practice.
Ayurveda, like Yoga, is a Vedic science, the Sanskrit translation of the word literally meaning Science of Life. Ayurveda is a well-known ancient form of natural healing with the aim of detoxifying all toxins from the body. Toxins build up in our body over time even when naturally a healthy person, therefore Ayurvedic treatments are great to have whether you have any specific ongoing ailments you wish to address or not, and doing an Ayurvedic treatment program as such, on a yearly basis at the least, is highly recommended.
After your initial one-on-one consultation with the Ayurvedic specialist, you will decide whether to take a seven-day program of either an Ayurvedic Panchakarma Treatment Program or a Rejuvenating Ayurvedic Treatment Program. Some Ayurvedic treatments involve using dairy products such as milk and ghee, however treatments can be tailored for vegans.
Reiki is a natural healing technique done through energy channeling by means of gentle touch, to activate the natural healing process of the patient's body and restore both physical and mental well-being. Reiki energy is all positive energy, therefore receiving these positive vibes also helps let go of any negative thoughts and feelings that may be holding you back. A treatment that is all natural and therefore truly beneficial for all.
