Reiki

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by ‘laying on hands’ and is based on the idea that an unseen ‘life force energy’ flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's ‘life force energy’ is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress - and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. An experience with Reiki can provide deep relaxation, emotional calming and mental clearing, peace, warmth, tingling and other body sensations. Reiki is an aid towards attaining peace and harmony in your life.

70 minutes: €90.00

Ayurvedic Massage at The Retreat Spa

Ayurveda is a holistic approach to health. It relaxes the body, quietens the mind and uplifts the spirit. The Ayurvedic Massage is a technique used by Yogis and Rishis of ancient India to promote healing and longevity, by releasing tension and connecting the flow of prana (vital energy) throughout the body. This holistic treatment stimulates the circulatory system, balances the physical and emotional levels, softens and relaxes the muscles, helps to release toxins, induces a state of deep relaxation, and relieves pain and muscle spasms. Highly recommended for stress and psychosomatic illnesses, this all encompassing Full Body Massage will release tension and reduce tiredness, bringing harmony to the body and mind.

85 minutes: €120.00

I LOVE CYPRUS TOUR - 2013 - Update

Five cyclists of Cypriot origin wanted to prove how much they love Cyprus - but they also wanted to indulge their passion for cycling, so they combined the two together to carry out the ‘I LOVE CYPRUS’ Island-wide Cycling Tour from 15th to 22nd September 2013.

The team cycled the full perimeter of the island of Cyprus clockwise, starting at Aphrodite Hills Resort on the morning of 15th September and finishing at the same point exactly one week later, on the afternoon of 22nd September. The total journey was estimated at around 430 miles or approximately 700 km.

The reason for the tour was to celebrate the 60th birthday of one of the team, Robert Kyprianou, by rejoicing in the beauty, the wonderful sites and diverse history of the island. Along the way they:
  • Passed ancient ruins at Paphos, Soloi, Salamis, Amathus and Curium;
  • Witnessed the legacy of the Crusaders and the Franks at St Hilarion, Kantara and Kolossi; 
  • Admired the Venetian defences at Paphos Castle, Kyrenia Harbour and the walls of Famagusta;
  • Visited the Christian churches and monasteries at Apostolos Andreas, Ayios Raphael at Pachyammos, Panayia Angeloktisti in Kiti, Ayios Mamas in Morphou, and the little but charming church of Ayios Georgios by the sea below Pegeia; 
  • Reminisced the legend of Aphrodite at Aphrodite’s Rock at Petra tou Romiou, Aphrodite’s baths near Latsi, and Aphrodite’s Sanctuary in Kouklia; 
  • Enjoyed the beauty of the Akamas, the pleasure of the sea and beaches, and the remoteness of the Karpass peninsula. 

 This was also the first time that the three youngest members of the team - Andreas, Alex and Marios - saw their ancestral homes.

The five cyclists on this tour were: 

Robert Kyprianou
Born in London to parents from Trikomo and Ayios Georgios, both near Famagusta now in the occupied area, who also have a home in Aphrodite Hills.

Alex Kyprianou
Son of Robert, born in London and who has never visited his grandparents’ homes in Trikomo and Ayios Georgios.

Marios Kyprianou 
Son of Robert, born in London; a university student reading Economics at Warwick University.

Vassos Vassiliou
Born in London and whose father is from Morphou. Vassos has run 15 marathons and numerous triathlons.

Andreas Vassiliou
Son of Vassos. Andreas is a student and will be entering Warwick University in October to read Economics and has never visited his grandfather’s home in Morphou.

Gymstick



Using a stick for training has always been widely popular and is regularly used in gyms for sports training and by rehabilitation specialists and physiotherapists. The ‘Gymstick’ was created when it was realised that by adding bands to the stick it proved to be a successful way of adding resistance to the exercises.

When using the Gymstick the whole body is actively involved, even though the focus maybe on a specific muscle group. The hands and feet are connected and due to the angle and line of pull from the bands, this facilitates optimal efficient joint positioning. The Gymstick challenges balance by changing the forces on the body and will effectively encourage greater synergy of muscle action.

We hope to introduce this class to you in September, so please refer to our Fitness Timetable at the Retreat Spa Reception for the start date.

Yoga at The Retreat Spa



Join Vanessa at the Retreat Spa on Friday mornings and start your day by balancing your body, mind and spirit. 

Yoga in its full form combines physical postures, breathing exercises, meditation and a distinct philosophy. The word "Yoga" comes from the Sanskrit word “yuj”, which means "yoke” or “union" and it is believed that this describes the union between the mind and the body.

The benefits of Yoga are immense: practice will improve mood and sense of well-being thereby counteracting stress, reducing heart rate and blood pressure, whilst increasing lung capacity. Improving muscle relaxation and body composition, Yoga will also improve overall physical fitness, posture, strength and flexibility.

Vanessa began her Yoga journey in 1997 whilst living in Miami, Florida. It was a friend, Sarah-Jayne, who first showed her a sun salutation and took her to her first Ashtanga Yoga class. After that she was hooked! A few more classes saw improvement in her posture and never previously having natural flexibility, she began to feel more ‘space’ throughout her body and a huge shift in energy levels.

In 2001 Vanessa’s Yoga began to flourish. Moving from Miami to the majestic mountains of Vail, Colorado, Vanessa met Yoga teacher Charry Morris and began to practice Vinyasa Flow Yoga, which combines movement with breath. This soon became a meditation in motion for Vanessa and through practice, she became increasingly more connected to her body, spirit and breathing.

Thirsty for knowledge and keeping an open mind, Vanessa began to study different styles of Yoga and now shares her knowledge and passion for Yoga through teaching.

Her students are encouraged to ‘let go and have fun’ and ‘connect with their inner rhythm and find santosha (contentment) within their own lives, both on and off the mat’.


Class Time: Fridays 10.15am


Please book your place at least one day in advance
