Culture and history are intertwined in Thailand, the land that shines the colors of gold. Gold of the temples that irradiate light, of the long sandy beaches where even the air “smells” of the sun and the genuine smile of a people, who have made welcome their second religion and availability their philosophy. In Eden the Thai speak of relaxation, lightness and of the placid search for one’s own wellbeing. The voice of the soul and the sound of the heart. Here some of the most esteemed health & wellness retreats in the world arise, oases of regeneration where traditional medicine meets Buddhist meditative practices, giving rise to long paths in pleasure that are entrusted to the hands of those who have made massage an art and the stimulation of the senses a skill.
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.
Relaxation, easing tensions, releasing the energy blocked in the most remote meanderings of the body, strength recovery: with Rejuvenation the interior tensions, both physical and mental, melt like snow in the sun, slipping out of the body and diffusing a widespread sense of peace, tranquillity and well-being. Through a series of customized treatments the body regains its natural force, the facial features are smoothed out, the skin regains its luminosity and a renewed desire to act pervades every action, movement and thought. Revitalization is a rebirth, defining new times dictated by the harmony recovered between being and being present, aware of one’s own needs. Each therapy gives voice to one’s deepest needs that are stripped of constraints, finding themselves free. The tissues return to their normal functioning, drawing on fresh oxygen, cells retrieve their lifeblood and the aging processes slow down their development.
The rebirth of the spirit originates from the purity of the body. The return to life is shaped by the candour of our inner being. Wellbeing flows from the sharpness of thought. The ability to eliminate the toxins that poison the body and soul allows energy to be regained, recovering strength and vigour. The purification of the body is not only repair, but also the experience of vitality and a path to wellness, which is outlined by personalized programs in the signal of change. Changing one’s lifestyle, learning balanced nutrition, is the first step towards a process of detoxification with benefits that know no end.
For rediscovering the joy of movement and to promote physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. To discover the pleasure of being active, vital and energetic. To feel part of the “whole”. Physical activity is not coercion but an instrument of well-being: specialized personal trainers will help the recovery of fitness, in regaining agility, working on muscle tone, endurance and flexibility. Stretching, Pilates, yoga but also boot camp and walking will allow the body to regain strength and mind to lighten.
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.
