Regenerate yourself. Recover your natural rhythms; rediscover the pleasure of being cradled by the sun and the sea. Breaking with the schemes of everyday life to find peace in not having them. Relaxation is forgetting to have those thoughts, which are ready to be shipwrecked on the long stretches of white beaches, understanding the true meaning of calm, cultivating boredom by transforming it into stillness. Noise is cancelled by the sound of the waves in Turks & Caicos or Antigua, gardens of tranquility, miracles of creation where everything is nature. Alone or coupled, treat yourself to well being, re-learn to listen to yourself, to feel your inner voice intensely. Water, earth, sky, air: a sensation on the skin in the Caribbean.
A holistic practice, a lifestyle, a pragmatic science, yoga is a world, and a philosophy in which physical, moral, mental and spiritual well being become contours in a single representation. Mankind. The search for balance bursts from the body, where strength and harmony combine to produce satisfaction, offer relaxation and infuse power. Yoga thus becomes an instrument for the prevention of physical illness and emotional ailments, a shield with which to protect the body and strengthen the spirit, whose true essence is inextricably linked to universal laws: the respect for life, truth and patience are the first gentle breaths of calm breathing, a quiet mind and a strong will, will chose the tesserae to design ones own mosaic. Inherent are the moral virtues of yoga, the act of living and the effort of rebirth.
STRESS MANAGEMENT- INNER PEACE
Living with the pressures of daily life. Do not let anxieties, fears and compulsions set the pace. Do not permit stress to put unconscious chains on the body, limiting the spirit and choking the soul. Learning to manage inner tensions, avoiding their degeneration into pathologies and illness is a school of life, an obligation to rediscover the pleasure of tasting a joy that can donate unexpected encounters, moments of peace and instants of profound quiet. Changing one’s lifestyle becomes the priority so as to recover the self-made sense of space, time and personal locations. Yoga, meditation and nutrition, define a path of re-appropriation that soothes the mind offering balance to the spirit.
SILENCE- ENVIRONMENTAL DETOX
Slow down to listen to the inner voice. Recharge by cultivating silence. Discover the pleasure of emptiness leaving space only for the echo of the heart. Emotions become sharper, feelings run powerfully on the skin, “sense” becomes simple. Moving meditation, nature walks, swimming in streams of crystal clear water where the sounds of trees and animals become music. A self-imposed exile to reconnect with one’s most intimate, to tune in with the surrounding environment, to return to appreciating others. Forgetting the world to plunge into the world is an experience that shakes body and mind, in a joint path that knows no impositions and is guided by the pulsing of blood. No ritual, no technique, no defined time. Only the opportunity to immerse oneself, alone, in nature.
Living in the present, avoiding returning to the past or projecting into the future allows the full enjoyment of the present, understanding its value and drawing fulfilment from it. Re-living the “before” or hypothesizing the “after” is extraneous from the ‘”now” and prevents full emergence into life: “Today” should become the brick on which to build one’s own house, the principle from which everything starts. The appropriation of meditation is the key to change, as well as being a method to a profound understanding of oneself, a technique for relaxation to tune in to oneself and the world. A location of fullness and balance, an oasis of peace and harmony, meditation is the space where the soul interacts with the body on the tracks of silence and inner listening. Each path of well-being cannot exclude it, every journey of rebirth may only benefit from it.
