Our signature Yoga treatment takes you through a profoundly contemplative and meditative journey, leading to a heightened state of well-being. After a personalised consultation, our yoga expert will guide you through a series of ‘Āsanas’ (body and mind postures) and ‘Prānāyāmās’ (controlled breathing techniques) leaving you energised and balanced. Experience higher levels of concentration with ‘Trataka’ (steady flame gazing) and Kaya Sthairam (consciously stilling the body). Restore the body’s chakras (energy centres) and enhance clarity of mind with gem stone visualisation, an intense colour therapy experience. You will then be asked to pick a contemplation card.
