Healing through Massage

a little touch..

..can do miracles


Massage therapy may help the body in many ways.  It can relax muscle tissue, which may lead to decreased nerve compression, increased joint space and range of motion. Having regular massage therapy enables your body to restore balance and flush out toxins.

It can help you sleep better, increase concentrations levels and improve your mental alertness, improving your mood and easing your anxiety.

Massage therapy is thought to induce a relaxation response, which lowers the heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure; boosts the immune system; and generally decreases the physical effects of stress. 

It has the power to reconnect you to your body and go beyond the mental chatter we are mostly subjected to. In other words, it takes you away from life inside your head and brings you back to the physical terrain.

 
 

We offer a wide variety of massage treatments, going from Traditional Thai Massage, to Shiatsu, Deep Tissue and Ayurvedic Massage.

Healing through Yoga


130904_yoga04_7HYingYang_Michiel26.jpg

Keep calm…

…and do Yoga

We believe and also experience that yoga has been beneficial to our standard of living from the moment we started our practice. Both practicing alone at home or in a group there is a certain healing effect that comes with it whilst moving around in awareness with our breath.

During the retreat we will focus on more vigorous practices (Vinyasa based all levels) in the morning and more meditative practices(Yin and Restorative Yoga) in the evening to cater to our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body. This combination of approaches can bring healing to us on many different levels.

Most of us are used to practicing yoga indoors, but recent studies have shown practicing yoga in nature has many health benefits. For this reason we prefer to teach yoga in outdoor yoga ‘shalas’, immersed in nature.

In recent years, there has been an increasing trend to practise outdoor yoga and even take your mat on a hike, but eco-yoga goes beyond that. It’s about exploring our deep (and often forgotten) connection with nature. It has its roots in yogic traditions, Buddhist teachings, forest bathing and various yoga styles. In Western cultures, we tend to associate yoga with the poses we do in a studio, but some gurus have found powerful ways to layer yoga with mindful moments outdoors, and Schneberger is one such pioneer.
