Asana & Meditation Practice:
Everyday there will be several yoga, mediation, mindful movement practices and workshops that give you valuable tools to nurture yourself. There is no experience necessary to participate in these practices except an open mind and a desire to grow.
The styles of yoga that we will be practicing are vinyasa, hatha, yin and restorative.
Most of the time the yoga classes will take place in the yoga oka and on beach day we will be taking our mats with us to practice sunset yoga on the beach.
Intro to Aromatherapy (workshop):
The use of essential oils in every day life can do amazing things for your wellbeing. In this introduction we will be covering the topics of the history and uses of essential oils, including how to use them therapeutically and incorporate them into your lifestyle. Once the course is done you will be able to identify and safely use 10 essential oils, you will have 3 DIY products that you have made in class and you will be able to discuss how essential oils interact on all levels of body, mind and spirit.
Intro to Thai Massage (workshop):
In this 4-hour taster course, you are introduced to the fundamentals of Thai massage. Through hands-on practice, you will learn a blissful 35-minute massage sequence, gaining first-hand experience in both giving and receiving Thai massage. Once you have learned the basics of Thai massage, you can share this beautiful gift with your family and friends. They will certainly appreciate it!
Thai Massage Treatment:
Thai Yoga Massage is a mind~body~spirit practice that has the same roots as the ancient understanding of Ayurveda. Thai massage incorporates many different soft tissue manipulation techniques with assisted stretches and meditation in order to achieve a deep state of relaxation. This modality of touch emphasizes that each physical body is different and has different needs, meaning that no two massages are ever exactly the same. Thai Massage is generally practiced on a large mat on the floor, with the receiver full clothed in exercise or flexible clothing without the use of oils. Intuition is a guiding force for every treatment, as is a thorough understanding of the body through anatomy education.
Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing modality that is often practiced for the purpose of stress reduction, relaxation and full-body healing. It is administered by laying yours hands on the client and working with the life- force energy that flows through us all and causes us to be alive. When your life-force energy is low it causes you to get sick easily, feel drained, stressed and unhappy. A Reiki Master helps you to increase the flow of your life-force energy, which makes you feel happier, healthier and more empowered to be the person you are meant to be. A treatment often feels like a very gentle glowing radiance that flows through you. It works on all levels of body, mind and soul and can help you to release on all levels as well.
Note: Your travel to and from the centre is NOT included.
