Aerial Yoga

Why fight gravity? Aerial Yoga works together with gravity to relax and realign the body, center the mind and uplift the spirit. 

You’ll get a ‘yoga high’ by deepening your practice: experience physical release, refined strength, energetic flow, and heightened awareness of breath and body. Newcomers learn practical postural fundamentals while discovering how yoga enlightens your life.

The American Council on Exercise (ACE) found that “regular participation in Aerial Yoga improves cardiorespiratory fitness and positively modifies several major CVD risk factors.” 

Findings from this study support Aerial Yoga as an alternative to traditional exercise modalities for adults, as this novel form of yoga yields metabolic responses in the moderate-intensity range. Regular participation in Aerial Yoga improves cardiorespiratory fitness and positively modifies several major CVD risk factors.

While Aerial Yoga is designed to deliver an authentic Yoga experience rather than being just a fancy exercise or fitness class, it’s reassuring to know that the entire Aerial Yoga spectrum offers powerful health benefits for its practitioners.


Spa Treatment Highlights

Facials

Glowing skin is an outward reflection of your inner health and to help you achieve this, our facials do more than just treat the surface.

Non-Surgical Radiofrequency Facelift Facial

Radiofrequency energy treatment is used as  a technology for non-surgical tightening of the skin to reduce the signs of early aging, sagging skin and other concerns. This technology is used primarily to treat the forehead (to lift brows and tighten forehead skin), under the eyes (to tighten and lift the upper cheek skin), cheeks (to lift slightly and diminish enlarged pores), mid-face, jaw line (to diminish jowling and sagging along the jaw line), and the neck (to tighten skin and diminish wrinkling of the neck).


Collagen Boosting Rose Diamond Facial

A fruit acid peel is followed by exfoliation with densely packed diamonds which immediately brighten the skin, allowing a deeper penetration of collagen and boosting actives and sodium hyaluronate. This facial concludes with a special anti-aging massage to lift and tone muscles for a firmer, younger looking skin.


Rose Crystal Lymphatic Facial

A deep cleansing facial followed by the application of three masks to decongest, brighten and hydrate the skin. It continues with lymphatic drainage and acupressure massage to firm and reduce puffiness. A relaxing massage of feet, hands, arms and scalp evokes a deep sense of relaxation, leaving the skin fresh and glowing.


Body Treatments

We have a diverse menu of body treatments which reveal your natural glow and rejuvenate your body, working deep to eliminate toxins, combat cellulite, improve circulation and tone skin.

Citrus Energizer

This invigorating body treatment begins with a citrus peel scrub using ingredients from local oranges and lemons together with raw sugar to cleanse and soften the skin. It continues with an olive oil butter wrap infused with citrus essential oils to nourish the body and uplift all the senses.  An ideal energy booster after an active day or traveling. 


Complete Grape Rejuvenation

An antioxidant body treatment drawing upon the powerful health benefits of grapes. Dry skin brushing is followed by a gentle and re-mineralizing body exfoliation with grape pulp and grape seed oil. The body is then wrapped in a vineyard soak to stimulate the renewal of cells and collagen, leaving the skin more refined and with a youthful appearance. A relaxing scalp massage completes this treatment. 


Schist Stone and Almond Body Soother

Release muscle fatigue with this soothing treatment during which warmed schist stones are placed on various chakras.  Synonymous with port wine production, the dark color of the schist absorbs the heat of the day and slowly releases it during the night, adding to an ideal microclimate for growing grapes. It continues with a deep tissue massage, using sunflower oil blended with an almond essence known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.  The treatment concludes with a wrap and a cooling face compress. 


Massages

Our massages offer truly individual journeys during which you will discover the power of a healing touch from skilled therapists and attain the quintessential body and mind balance.

Ayurvedic Marma Massage

Deep relaxation and stress related tensions are released with long, firm and flowing movements applied to align vital energy centers using marma therapy and chakra balancing. Enriching oils with actives such as mogra, kewda and brahmi are applied to cool, calm and balance the heart chakra to create inner joy and impart powerful anti-aging benefits for body and mind.


Therapeutic Massage

This massage begins with a personalized consultation with an in-house physiotherapist to determine your areas of concern. It is followed by a treatment using a variety of techniques tailored to your specific needs, including advice and tools to take home.


Thai Herbal Compress

A full body massage using warm poultices which are applied to specific pressure points using gentle and rolling movements to condition skin and induce a sense of well-being.
