August is the month of holidays. Some escape to the mountains, others to the beach, some travel abroad and some avoid the crowds by staying put. For those staying on the island at the beginning of August, Soul Space is organising a Holistic Summer Break in Kampia village to soothe mind, body and soul.
The revitalising retreat on August 4 to 11 will take place at the beautiful mountain resort of Angel’s Hills Mountain Resort in which goers can enjoy the fresh open space of the countryside and forests. The seven-day retreat will be a fun, playful happening but also has an emphasis on the deepening of self-knowledge through various practices, classes and healing rituals. There will be daily yoga and meditation sessions in nature and by the pool and a three-hour tantra workshop in the cleansing pine forest. Other highlights of the retreat include a two-hour nighttime ecstatic yoga and dance with a live DJ, as well as a nature trail hike followed by mountain-top yoga, meditation and pranayama.
The week welcomes all sorts of guests and aims to be a refreshing and exciting event to balance the nervous system, strengthen and boost the immune system, release energy blocks and revitalise the functioning of the body and mind.
“Would you like to enjoy the simple pleasures in life… to relax, unwind, to release and let go, to nourish and heal your body and mind, to feel at one with yourself, others and nature, and to enter into the essence of your true self?” ask organisers Soul Space. “The retreat could be great as a girls’ getaway, a romantic and spontaneous couples’ getaway, bonding time for you and your dog, or a rejuvenating personal holiday.”
Included in the prices, ranging from €450 to €900, is seven nights accommodation in the mountain resort, all meals and classes. Optional extras such as holistic therapies and spa treatments and excursions to the beach and tourist attractions can be added to the retreat’s agenda for a full experiential week away in Cyprus’ nature.
