Give yourself a complete reset
If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the past year, it’s that it’s incredibly important to take care of ourselves. Often we are not aware of how a number of bad habits, physical complaints, negative thoughts or stress can make us very unhealthy or unhappy. With this 14-day package we offer you the opportunity to look at yourself in a holistic way through both Yoga and Ayurveda and to transform your life for the better.
- The course lasts 14 days, with arrival on Sunday 8 and departure on Saturday 21 August
- The activities take place in the mornings from Monday to Friday and consist of workshops and group sessions, they take place outside as much as possible.
- The weekend days are free to spend at leisure
- Attention is paid to your personal situation or issues
- The course is taught in English
Ayurveda, a healthy lifestyle
Ayurveda is the oldest medicine in the world and means ‘Knowledge of life’.
The first week you get introduced to the basic principles of Ayurveda. By being aware of how your body works and what effect your living and eating patterns have you can improve your health. The program is includes practical workshops in which we look for fresh herbs in nature and make different preparations, including tea and oils.
Balance your Body and Mind through Yoga
A person consists of a connection between body, mind and soul. The soul is seen as your purest being, which is part of the galactic consciousness that we can sometimes get a glimpse of. Body and Mind are the parts that make us human. They are inextricably linked, every physical complaint has an effect on your mental state and mental problems lead to a physical manifestation in your body.
The second week we help you to work on a healthy body and a healthy lifestyle. We will also consciously look at your own way of thinking and help you to exercise control over this. By being physically and mentally in balance you are able to ward off whatever life throws at you.
After spending 2 weeks at Centre Lothlorien in a natural rhythm and in a healthy lifestyle, you give your body the chance to find a new balance.
