ANGELA'S JOURNEY

 

The inspiration for these immersions came from my own transformative adventures participating in numerous retreats and workshops all over the planet.  These experiences changed my life.  It brought me deeper into my heart, into my body and helped me to reconnect with myself, in turn making it easier to connect with other people. 

 

This retreat will show you how to infuse the vital power of your sensual energy into your day-to-day life. It will elevate your intimate relationship to become the place where you are nourished, uplifted and transformed.  The benefits of immersions are that you have the opportunity to dive deep, without distractions and form new beliefs and habits. When you step back into your daily routine, you embody these new behaviours.

RACHEL'S JOURNEY

 

My journey in holistic health began over 25 years ago with a beautiful gift from my Grandmother, an aromatherapy book, that sparked my interested in the magic of essential oils.  After completing my aromatherapy and reflexology studies in South Africa and London I started a small holistic health practice in my garden studio and also worked as a therapist at Neal's Yard Remedies in Guildford, England. 

 

I attended my first yoga class in the late 1990s and fell in love with the practice. I loved the energy; the vibrancy; the way it made me feel; the lessons it taught me; the transformation; the confidence it gave me; the stability; the clarity and most of all the tranquillity.  I teach Hatha and Vinyasa Flow as well as taking inspiration from the Ashtanga tradition. My focus is on alignment and guiding my students through a practice that is safe and suitable for each individual. Yoga is so much more than just a form of dynamic movement. It's a way of life and provides a solid foundation for a healthy, harmonious and balanced lifestyle.

 

On this retreat I will offer some morning yoga and meditation classes; luxurious pampering sessions with aromatherapy and reflexology as well as creative mala workshops.

Cyprus Yoga Retreat with Claire Dalloz

7th to 14th October 2019

Cyprus

 

Cyprus is all about APHRODITES, the island's goddess. The third largest Mediterranean island with over 300 sunny days a year, Cyprus looks back on a more than 10,000 year old cultural history. It offers all art and culture lovers as well as all sun worshipers a restful, interesting and unique stay. Cyprus is a green island, rich in forests, and has  fantastic, sprawling beaches with a bright blue sea. The legendary hospitality of its inhabitants make Cyprus a special experience.

 

The Aphrodite Beach Hotel is located away from the hustle and bustle, right on a fine pebble beach with crystal clear water. Gregoria, who learned hotel management in Switzerland, her family and the entire crew make it easy to enjoy, relax and recharge your batteries indulging all your senses.

 

All the guests are spoiled here with Cypriot charm and warmth. The nearby Akamas peninsula gives the place its special charm and makes it a truly "powerful place”. All in all an ideal place for people who are looking for something special: peace, tranquility and the desire to discover themselves and the island on their own.

 

During this intense yoga week (5 hours practice per day) we will enjoy a holistic practice. In the morning session we begin in silence with a meditation and pranayama practice and then move into a dynamic Hatha Flow practice. In the evening session we sing mantras and wind body and mind down with a restorative practice. 

 

You have the opportunity to leave daily life behind and to dive deep into your yoga practice, connect to your essence, restore your energy and create a healing space within you. This connection to your essence enables you to feel a sense of freedom on all levels: physical, emotional, spiritual. It allows you to come home to the Self.

 

Claire offers an integrated, holistic practice that awakens consciousness on all levels. Through moments of stillness in meditation, moments of concentration in pranayama (breath work) and the precise practice of asanas (yoga poses) consciousness is awakened and transformation can take place.

 

Price: € 965.– per person

 

Included in the price:

  • accommodation (7 nights) in a double room (double rooms may be used for single occupancy at a slight increase in price)
  • delicious breakfast buffet and 3-course vegetarian evening meal using local fresh products
