Breathe, Stretch and Cleanse with a Yoga Detox
Six Senses Spa is set to launch a series of Yogic programmes throughout this year to meet the increased demand for authentic and millennia-old healing practices that aim to deliver optimum mind and body balance. Available at many Six Senses Spas soon will be the ‘Discover Yoga’ and ‘Yogic Detox’ programmes, with the addition of ‘Yogic Sleep’ in the third quarter of 2014. This brand-wide initiative showcases Six Senses Spas’ commitment to delivering holistic and results-driven programs which combine the expertise and skills of in-house yoga masters with the healing properties of the surrounding environment.
This treatment is ideal for novices and guests wishing to try a new form of mind and body exercise. The main goal is to develop an understanding of how the body engages in each posture, while the yoga master guides one’s awareness to specific areas and aspects of the practice to enhance the body’s natural intuition. Stress release, improved flexibility, plus a stronger and more powerful body are additional benefits guests can expect from this programme.
This treatment is suitable for the more experienced yoga practitioners looking to cleanse the body and mind in a non-invasive and less punishing way. It draws upon different hatha yoga cleansing techniques called Sat Kriya which includes yogic intestinal wash, forceful exhalation breathing and candle flame meditation to cleanse the internal organs and achieve harmony between the major pranic flows. Aspects of hatha yoga postures, known as asana, and more advanced practices of pranayama and meditation are incorporated along with detox treatments to offer a profound experience. Each element of this programme is introduced and based on a personalised assessment of each guest’s condition.
Launching later this year, this treatment will focus on yoga nidra, an ancient practice intended to induce full body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. This, combined with guided mediation, breathing techniques and relaxing spa treatments, leads to improved sleep and quality of relaxation.
