Body: On point and good to go
If you’ve fallen in love with the feel-good energy and stress relief that Balinese massage brings, then head to Rahasia Nyaman Institute of Healing Arts to learn its methods. Choose between a one-day introductory course and a four-day course to learn acupressure, deep tissue techniques, aromatherapy, gentle stretches and more. With an hour’s massage choreography in the bag you’ll earn some serious kudos back home.
Soul: Seek silence and digital disconnection
A five-day silent meditation retreat might be just the antidote to our noisy, digital, over-stimulated lifestyles. The quietness is challenging at first, but it soon becomes a comforting, non-judgemental witness to your inner reflections. You could find personal transformation and, dare we say, even your life’s purpose. Blooming Lotus Retreat holds two silent meditation retreats a year, in which participants practise meditation, pranayama (breathing), yoga asana classes, yoga nidra (psychic sleep) and dharma talks.
