Yoga is offered every morning and evening in an amazing yoga studio and the sessions can be tailor-made to your needs. 

Every class consists of a breathing exercise (pranayama), a short meditation and physical practice (asana). 

All levels of yogis are welcome.

massages

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is best for people who have muscle pain and tension or who simply want to relax. This type of therapeutic massage uses heated stones to ease muscle tension, improve blood flow, and relieve pain. Usually the massage is 90 minutes long.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy massages are best for people who want to have an emotional healing component to their massage. These massages combine soft, gentle pressure with the use of essential oils. Your massage therapist will usually decide which essential oils to use, but you can let them know if you have a preference. Essential oils are diluted before being applied to the skin. Usually this massage is 60 – 90 minutes long.

Ayurvedic Massage

Ayurveda is the ancient science of healing body, mind and soul. This massage invites you to take a step into the knowledge of the Vedas and embrace your body’s natural healing powers. This vigorous full body massage stimulates the flow of energy and liberates toxins and stiffness. It provides greater flexibility to the body and increases the mobility of joints. This targets Vata, Kapha or Pitta Dosha, and usually takes 90 minutes.

Holistic Massage

A set of techniques of oriental origin are used, which prevent diseases, pain, and aids detoxification. It acts in three ways, boosting the physical, mental and spiritual. Duration – 60 minutes.

Quick Massage

This massage concentrates on one part of the body. A good opportunity to ease stress, release tense shoulders and back. The duration is 25 minutes.

Pinda Massage

Pinda massage is a massage of oriental origin, using healing cotton pouches – small pouches filled with healing herbs and plants. During the treatment, the warm pindas help muscles to relax. The warmth of the pouches helps enlarge the pores of the skin, allowing herbs and essential oils to work their magic. This massage helps ease the bones and joints, and also balances the chakras. Usually this massage is 60 – 90 minutes long.

Couples Massage

Enjoy being massaged side by side with your partner. This is a treat that can be combined with other experiences on the farm, such as a couples yoga session and a champagne picnic. 90 minutes.

Couple Zen Sensation Workshop (Guidance from the Therapist)
