About This Event
This holistic 5-day mindful retreat will improve your emotional and physical well-being, strengthen your immune system, and wipe away the stress. Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. People are looking for ways to cope with challenges and complications in their lives. With stress issues on the rise especially these challenging times, people are turning to mindfulness as an antidote to struggling. There is more than one way to practice mindfulness, but the goal of any mindfulness technique is to achieve a state of alert, focused relaxation by deliberately paying attention to thoughts and sensations without judgment. This allows the mind to refocus on the present moment and not to think about the past or future. With all training studios being shut down temporarily, travelgems and KANAVA Hotels & Resorts offer you a great opportunity to practice mindfulness with famous instructors; something that would have been almost impossible otherwise.
