Holistic Wellbeing With Our Compliments
Our Seychelles resort is more than just luxury, it is about creating a holistic experience of wellbeing. Let us share the benefits of Hatha Yoga and Qi Gong with you in the peaceful, open air and natural surroundings of MAIA Spa. Group classes of these special practices are offered compliments of MAIA, although you can also opt for a personal instructor in your own Villa, at a fee.
Those who are familiar with Qi Gong will know that it refers to a wide variety of traditional, cultivation practices that involve methods of accumulating, circulating, and working with qi (or energy) within the body. Qi Gong is practiced for health maintenance purposes, as a therapeutic intervention, as a medical profession, a spiritual path and/or component of Chinese martial arts. MAIA's professional staff will guide you through this gentle practice to reduce stress levels. Private lessons booked can be held either in MAIA Spa or in the privacy of your Villa.
Hatha comes from combining the two Sanskrit terms "ha" meaning sun and "tha" meaning moon. When the two components of the word are placed together, "hatha" means "forceful", implying that powerful work must be done to purify the body. Yoga means to yoke, or to join two things together, hence hatha yoga is meant to join together our sun (masculine, active) energy with our moon (feminine, receptive) energy, thus producing balance and greater power in an individual. Our professional staff will guide you through this purifying practice to enhance your energy levels and create a far-reaching sense of wellbeing. Private yoga lessons booked can be held either in our Seychelles spa or in the privacy of your Villa.
