One-Day Yoga & Spa Retreat
There is no better way to wake up your senses than with a yoga and spa session. Start with a private yoga class on a platform overlooking the bay, where your posture and flexibility will be strengthened through a series of asana poses. Then unwind with a therapeutic spa sequence as your tensions melt away, before nourishing your body with a healthy lunch to help guide you towards healthier eating habits.
This yoga class mixes Vinyasa Flow and Hatha for a balance of wellness. Increase your heartbeat with the energetic movements of Vinyasa Flow to warm up your body. Then slow down with some Hatha where asanas are held for ten deep breaths or more for a complete sense of wholeness. Finish off with the relaxing state of Savasana and Pranayama.
Hatha Yoga concentrates on aligning the stillness of body and mind through a series of poses. After warming up with Suryanamaskar, you will then move into slow static movements where each asana is held for at least ten deep breaths. This class will leave you feeling focused on your strength, awareness and breath.
The Sivananda form of yoga is a series of 12 poses that direct attention from the head to toe, beginning with postures that focus on the crown chakra before moving down to the root chakra. A long rest concludes the class of Savasana, alongside extensive Pranayama and meditation.
Basic asanas make up this slow style of yoga. Perfect if you prefer not to over-exert yourself yet still want to nurture positive benefits. Detox Yoga alternates lying and standing poses to enhance peace and stillness – each being held for ten deep breaths or more.
