New NdP Yogic Programmes at Six Senses Spa Marbella28-10-2015
With the increased demand for authentic and millennia-old healing practices that deliver the optimum body and mind balance, Six Senses Spa Marbella at Puente Romano Beach Resort and Spa has launched a series of yogic programmes – Discover Yoga, Yogic Detox, and Yogic Sleep.
These holistic, yet result-driven programmes bring together the expertise and skills of the spa's in-house yoga master with the healing properties of the surrounding environment.
Puente Romano Beach Resort and Spa privileged location, surrounded by botanical garden and right in front of the sea allows switching off completely and living the experience fully.
Discover Yoga is ideal for novices and guests wishing to try a new form of body and mind 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 the program.
Hatha Yoga practiced during the stay focuses on gentle moves with a minimum and effortless flow between each pose. Private sessions of guided meditation and breathing exercise called pranayama (breathing) will help regulate the pace of breath, relax, and maintain the steadiness of the body, leading to clearer mind and better coordination during yoga practice. A selection of Six Senses Signature Massages and energy treatments has been included in the program to enhance the results.
Yogic Detox is suitable for more experienced yoga practitioners looking to cleanse the body and mind in a non-invasive way. It draws upon different hatha yoga cleansing techniques including sat kriya (movement and breath exercise) 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 asanas and more advanced practices of pranayama and meditation are incorporated along with detox treatments to offer a profound experience. Each element of this program is introduced and based on a personalised assessment and guest's condition.
Research has shown time and time again that if we sacrifice sleep, we are impairing our ability to remember and learn, and in longer term, sleep deprivation leads to mood swings, depression, obesity, and heart disease. Six Senses Spa Yogic Sleep is designed to boost the quality of relaxation and thus improve sleep by combining yoga nidra, pranayama, and gentle yoga practice with relaxing spa treatments.
Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep or sleep with awareness, is a simple yet hugely effective practice most often taught lying down. Its goal is to induce full body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness, addressing practitioners' psychological, neurological, and subconscious needs. It also provides a set of mind-body tools that can help guests achieve everyday well-being and often navigate some of life's hardest moments. Regular practice leads to the most profound level of relaxation, improved sleep patterns, and a stronger immune system.
