THE GLOW PROGRAM
I have dedicated the glow program to something that is very close to my heart. With glow I want to bring something to life that includes tools for your daily life. So I filled every day of this week with a special topic: we have a water day, a creative day, wellness day, mantra day, outdoor day and last but not least a relax day. All in all it’s a week filled with healthy food, yoga, mindfulness meditation, breathing exercises, journaling, dance & lots more. Glow is Self-care – It’s about living a glowing & beautiful life!
GLOW FLOW & YIN – MEDITATION & JOURNALING
If you have ever experienced a beautiful, demanding Flow Yoga class, you know the wonderful feeling: Energy pulses through your body, you feel alive and free – and at the same time completely relaxed, calm and clear. Especially people who live a more Yang-focused life often only manage to get into this kind of clarity and relaxation by exhausting themselves. They manage to switch off their permanently active head and get into their body, into feeling, into the here and now.
Gentle Yin Yoga is about holding individual asanas longer, relaxing more and more into the posture and really letting go. In Yin or Restorative Yoga, therefore, inner peace (and deep physical relaxation and recuperation) is achieved through external calm. The task here is clear: let go, relax, do nothing.
In our Mindfulness Meditation classes we will focus on the present moment using breathing practices, mental imagery, muscle and body relaxation. Complementary Journaling helps us to focus on the positive and important things in life through targeted notebook entries.
HEALTHY PLANT-BASED FOOD
Since food is energy, at Sandhi House, you will be served fresh, healthy food from local producers and made with a lot of love. Meals are colourful, tasteful and joyful. For breakfast juices, homemade granola, healthy cakes and snacks, homemade humus and always fresh vegetables and fruits are offered. Lunch will be healthy and nourishing soul food and in the end of the day we will relax over a hearty delicious plant-based dinner. You will be served what you deserve. Coffee and tea are free of charge and available throughout the day. All our meals will be served in the cosy living/dining room with stunning sea view.
