A Peaceful Mind

Boutique Mauritian resort Shanti Maurice has launched their first Ayurvedic Yoga Journey retreat, celebrating the ancient practices of Ayurveda and educating guests on the traditional Hindu medicine systems through specialised yogic practices. 

Taking place at Shanti Maurice’s Nira Spa, the specialized programme is tailored to suit each individual. Led by expert yogi, guests will receive morning lectures on the yoga sutras and learn how to apply them to their daily lives before participating in a number of guided yogic practices to support harmonious living.

Authentic treatments carried out throughout the program include the four handed Abyangha massage, which sees the body doused in warm oil; the Shanti Dhara massage, which clears the flow of energy through the body through synchronised massage and Chakra oil dripping; and daily healing Agnihotra (fire ceremony), which helps relieve tension and aid circulation.

Following the retreat philosophy, guests will be introduced to a selection of workshops on Ayurvedic cuisine. The dishes on the menu, laced with locally-sourced ingredients, are designed to naturally detoxify, leaving the body lighter, refreshed and rejuvenated.

For those who prefer a bit more action can take advantage of the paddle board yoga, Watsu, aqua aerobics, pilates, jogging, fusion fitness and yoga bike tour on offer at the resort.

The dedicated programme ranges from 5, 7 to 14 days and is set to run throughout November 2015.
