Humans are born to adapt, so if you’ve been doing the same activity forever your body (and mind) will become bored and sluggish. Our Visiting Practitioners help break the routine to gain physical and mental benefits too.
There’s a lot of comfort in routine: the morning cup of coffee or the daily dog walk in the park. However, there are health benefits to tackling a new activity, or re-engaging with an old hobby or sport enjoyed in childhood.
Many people know that movement releases happy hormones called endorphins, which reduce stress and trigger positive feelings. But there are added benefits in terms of mental well-being. The brain is like a muscle, which needs to be exercised to keep it in good condition. New experiences and activities are a fundamental requirement for mental stimulation. The brain grows with use and shrinks with inactivity. The more you try, the more capable you feel as you gain a sense of accomplishment and confidence.
However, activity does not have to mean high impact. Exercise should never be associated with a necessary punishment because you ate a slice of cake and need to “burn it off”. Low impact movement, such as yoga, is a great way to treat your body instead of torture it, relive anxiety, increase concentration and improve balance, posture, flexibility … and sleep!
Not convinced? Why not pay a visit to our Global Head of Yoga Dorelal Singh Thakur, who will be at Six Senses Kaplankaya until October 31? His expertise, experience and gentle encouragement means he is much admired by students and clients alike, in fact by everyone he helps. If you have always wanted to try yoga but never found the time or faced the fear of the unknown, now’s your chance.
Choose from classical Hatha, Ashtanga, Kriya, Kundalini, or Sivananda styles of yoga with personalized attention with adjustments that are suitable for all levels from beginner to advanced. Don’t worry, all will be explained to you during your personal consultation. Or try out aerial yoga, with antigravity poses and support from the soft hammock to improve flexibility, strength and spinal conditioning.
Andrew Rosenstock will be bringing his movement-based yoga therapy sessions to Six Senses Laamu from October 1 to 30, and to Six Senses Spa Kunfunadhoo from November 1 to 30, 2019 Andy aims to get you back into your body, mind and soul and is passionate about helping people move more freely while sprinkling love and compassion into all of his treatments.
In addition to yoga therapeutics, Andy can also guide you through meditation with breath work, which induces a tranquil state of mind, using breath to cleanse, strengthen and cultivate life energy, along with additional breathing practices depending on the condition of the koshas.
Six Senses offers private sessions of Hatha yoga, guided meditation and breathing exercises as part of the Discover Yoga program. It is ideal for complete yoga novices looking for an alternative and enjoyable body and mind practice who wish to develop an understanding of how the body engages in each posture and enhance the body’s natural intuition.
