YOGA AND REIKI: FLOATING ON A DREAM CLOUD
Thank you to Lucy from Led by Lucy for this amazing review!
To celebrate International Day of Yoga my Mum and I had a day of relaxation, treatments and yoga at Victoria Warehouse’s Holistic Central. My mind and body have recently been craving some Zen and so this retreat was welcomed with open arms.
I started to feel more peaceful and chilled as soon as I arrived. The décor is rustic with exposed brickwork, wooden furniture and huge Indian cushions. The spa room smells like lemongrass and jasmine and the yoga studio is decorated with Cambodian wooden carvings and statues. The one pictured here is Dakini, the Goddess of Wisdom, she represents freedom, transcends worldly desires and is unrestrained by human cravings.
I had never tried Reiki before but I love experiencing new things and so I chose this for one of my treatments.It is difficult to articulate how it felt or what happened but it was very powerful and kind of overwhelming. I have actually booked in for another slot with Katey Roberts the resident Reiki healer because I was so bowled over by the experience and want to do more.
Every experience on the day felt authentic to the ancient, spiritual roots of yoga and holistic therapies. There are regular yoga classes which are open to the public along with sound healing, chakra dance and shamanic journeying. I will definitely be going back to try out some more classes. There is actually a hotel on site and I am seriously wondering whether they take permanent residents.
The day was organised by Ocean Finance to promote stress free finance. Thank you so much for inviting me. It was wonderful. I drifted home feeling like I was floating on a dream cloud.
