BANGKOK – April 1, 2014 -With the increased demand for authentic and millennia-old healing practices that deliver the optimum body and mind balance, Six Senses Spas is launching a series of yogic programs.
Discover Yoga and Yogic Detox are now available at all spas at Six Senses resorts as well as select Six Senses partner spas. In the third quarter of 2014, Yogic Sleep will be incorporated into the Six Senses Spa Yogic Program series.
The brand wide initiative showcases the commitment of Six Senses Spas to delivering holistic, yet result-driven programs, which bring together the expertise and skills of in-house yoga masters with the healing properties of the surrounding environment. While the core elements of yogic programs are similar across every Six Senses Spa, they will be delivered in the individual spa’s unique location and enhanced with a dash of local charm to deliver optimum results.
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 personalized assessment and guest’s condition.
Anna Bjurstam, vice president, Six Senses Spa, said, “We are delighted to launch a brand-wide yoga program that allows Six Senses guests to experience yoga in a deeper and more profound form. Due to the high quality of yoga master talent we have throughout Six Senses, we have been able to roll this initiative out on a global basis and personalize each program through private sessions of yoga, breathing and meditation.”
The launch of Six Senses Spa Yogic Programs is supported by Dorelal Singh, a leading yoga practitioner trained at the Bihar School of Yoga in India who has spent many years studying, practicing and teaching a variety of difference forms of Yoga and Yogic Philosophy. He is responsible for enhancing yoga techniques and practices across all Six Senses spas.
Six Senses Spa Yogic Programs are now available at Six Senses Zighy Bay, Six Senses Laamu, Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, Six Senses Con Dao, Six Senses Yao Noi and Six Senses Samui as well as partner Six Senses spas at Soneva Kiri in Thailand, Soneva Fushi in the Maldives, Porto Elounda Golf & Spa Resort in Greece, Penha Longa Resort in Portugal, Puntacana Resort & Club in the Dominican Republic, Jaypee Greens Golf Resort & Spa in India, Sharq Village & Spa in Qatar, Missoni Hotel in Kuwait and the Pacific City Club in Bangkok.
Launching later this year, Yogic Sleep 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 meditation, breathing techniques and relaxing spa treatments, leads to improved sleep and a very deep quality of relaxation.
