Our holistic wellness programmes

Our programmes are based on the five pillars listed below or they can also comprise very specific therapies. They can however consist of just a few massage sessions at the villa or can be complete; it all depends on the type of holidays you, our guests, choose to spend.

The five pillars are:

Massages

Massages with Mohender

All massages are made at the villa by Mohender, and or his wife. Like for the whole of the programme, the frequency and type of massages will be first as per the guests' preferences and subject to our therapists' availabilities and qualifications.

Activity in nature

Health & Fitness with Nathalie

Our body is far more than a vehicle for the brain and our nature is far more than an environment to our body. We know that there is no human life without nature but we very seldom offer ourselves the time and opportunity to acknowledge this basic fact.

Spending time in nature not only brings in fresh air into the lungs and spreads colourful landscapes on our retina but anoints every cell, enhances that feeling of well-being, brings back the smiles. Nature is nurture for all body cells, including the brain cells and sensory networks. Being in a natural environment directly and immediately influences the way we feel, to the better, provided that we can temporarily stop our trains of thoughts, put aside our feelings of insecurity, our fears, our cravings. The colour-rich landscapes of Mauritius are a natural relaxant.

Our Activity in Nature sessions mainly aim at dynamizing the body through light physical activity and re-activating the sensory perceptions, replacing oneself within our natural environment and inversely, replacing nature within ourselves. They can also bring other benefits such as overcoming fears, accepting the unexpected or restoring trust at large.

Nathalie being an instructor for Vinyasa flow Yoga and a fitness coach, some sessions, namely the fitness, may be carried-out in Bras d'Eau nature reserve.






Yoga

Yoga with Christophe, Ingrid and Nathalie

All Yoga lessons will be carried out at the villa or in a natural spot around it. Depending on your needs, wishes and especially whether you already practice(d) Yoga, we will find the most suitable programme and teacher. Generally, Kundalini Yoga lessons are led by Ingrid while initiation sessions and regular Hatha Yoga lessons are lead by Christophe who, by the way can also teach traditional Kundalini Yoga. To widen our choice, Nathalie proposes Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow Yoga classes.
