Full Description

DESCRIPTION

Nurture your body, allowing it time and space to feel the full benefits of a daily Ashtanga practice.

The benefits go beyond the physical and seep into a much deeper space preparing the body and mind for a much better place of stillness in heart and mind.

Explore the beautiful landscape which is not only steeped in history but filled with the joys of spring. Watch the colourful sunset’s at Dwejra and take a walk around the Goddess temples which are a thousand year's older than the pyramids.

At times in our lives it can be very necessary to remove ourselves from our everyday environment and when we do so it creates a space in the mind to clear the clutter that can often be a bi-product of life. When the mind is clear we’re open to receive all the luxuries of positive thinking and the power of manifestation. It can be these simple thoughts that move us towards leading a life with a passion and zest that we so desire and deserve.

*Price is based on two people sharing an apartment; twin/double ​
