With insomnia flourishing in high-pressure environments, linked to poor lifestyle and stress, Shanti Maurice – part of Shanti Hospitality and a Nira Resort is launching a new sleep retreat, designed to reduce stress levels and overcome sleep disorders.
Launching this October, the Shanti Sleep Package will offer a five or seven-night bespoke programme incorporating Ayurveda, Reiki, guided meditation, yoga practices and nutrition.
Guests are introduced to the retreat with a personal one-on-one wellness consultation where health concerns and sleep patterns will be discussed and analysed.
Yoga Nidra practices, known as yogic sleep, teaches guests to access the mindful state between waking and sleeping, in which the body is completely relaxed while Pranyama, teaches the control of the breath, or “Prana” – the vital energy in the body.
Designed for all levels, guests will be guided through these ancient techniques by the Nira Spa’s expert practitioners.
A combination of traditional spa treatments such as Ayurvedic Shirodhara, Tibetan sound massage, Reflexology and Magnesium Sleep therapy will also aid in the retreat journey, using cultivated ancient techniques and therapies to encourage the restoration of physical, mental and emotional health.
The Japanese healing technique of Reiki is incorporated to channel energy into the patient by means of touch, encouraging physical and emotional wellbeing, healthy sleep patterns and activating the natural healing process of the body to combat the more significant health problems that are linked to poor sleep.
