Aluna Healing

“Awakening the Wisdom Within”

We invite you step into this sacred space, to re-awaken the remembrance of your health, inner knowing, luminosity, and sacredness - in loving harmony with our living Earth. We draw upon the practices and traditions of natural medicine, energetic healing, yoga, bodywork and shamanism ~ to realign with the rivers of ancient wisdom, so that the waters of life may flow freely and purely through our bodies, minds and hearts. As said by Hazrat Inayat Khan, "Peace comes when self is in harmony with the rhythm of the heart." We hope that you will join us upon this journey...

Daniela Lanaia:

Daniela is a respected yoga teacher, healer and musician. She is the co-founder of Aluna Healing and the Sacred Living Earth Trust and is known for her sound healing and music work with Anima. She has been studying and practicing healing arts since her teens, and draws upon these years of immersion into ancient wisdom teachings and the yoga tradition; offering a sensitive, profound and unique space dedicated to the reconnection and awakening of the heart with the living Earth.

Daniela works alongside Ali Calderwood with Anima, and has collaborated on 7 of Anima's albums as well as a number of compilation CDs which have been released worldwide. She is know for her "crystalline voice" and "music that penetrates the heart", and travels internationally offering sound healing events and concerts. In concert, she offers a sacred space of healing and deepening into the heart, and has performed along with Ali and independently at events throughout the UK, Europe and the Americas.

Daniela's journey has led her to study different styles of yoga, and completed teacher training in Shjanta Yoga and later, Integral Yoga with 'Yoga from Within'. She studied/practiced for a number of years with Sandra Sabatini, Angela Farmer and John Stirk, in the traditions of Taoist, Kriya and Kundalini Yoga and explorations into craniosacral therapy. Her yoga teaching also draws upon many years of working with energetic practices and the healing arts and spending time in silent retreat in Nature.

Through her teaching Daniela brings attention to the value of developing a deeper connection to the essence of being, and our sacred relationship with Nature, through exploring the body, mind and spirit in an open, warm hearted and compassionate way. This creates the space for ones inner truth to emerge and with time, a sense of strength and peacefulness grows as attachments and limiting patterns clear and dissolve.

Daniela lives in the Scottish Highlands and offers regular one-to-one sessions, workshops, concerts and retreats in the UK and internationally.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
