YOGA AND DIGITAL DETOX – RETURN TO PRESENCE
Discover the unique and exclusive experience of holistique wellness. A relaxing and therapeutic journey, in the heart of nature and away from modern life distractions.
FROM OUTER SILENCE TO INNER SILENCE
In the absence of daily distractions, where you can immerse yourself in the nature, the silence and quietness starts to appear. Your mind and heart rythm naturally slows down and the inner silence starts to arise.
“In the attitude of silence, the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
WHAT IS DIGITAL DETOX?
Digital detox is about temporarily fully disconnecting from all digital devices (internet, social networks, smartphone apps, etc) and taking a break from overload of informations from virtual life.
DISCONNECT TO RECONNECT
We have never been as “connected” as we are today. Checking out the phone first thing in the morning, a feeling of irritation when we can’t find our phone or when it’s short on battery, a need of responding to every e-mail and text message as soon as we read it…A large number of people in western countries is affected by this modern “hyper connectivity syndrome”which can create a lot of stress and affect the quality of our lives.
Your body is hard-wired to react to stress in ways meant to protect you against threats from predators and other aggressors. Such threats are rare today, but that doesn’t mean that life is free of stress.
On the contrary, you undoubtedly face multiple demands each day, such as shouldering a huge workload, making ends meet and taking care of your family. Your body treats these so-called minor hassles as threats. As a result, you may feel as if you’re constantly under assault. This causes your Adrenaline and Cortisol levels to heighten.
Adrenaline increases your heart rate, elevates your blood pressure and boosts energy supplies. Cortisol, the primary stress hormone, increases sugars (glucose) in the bloodstream, enhances your brain’s use of glucose and increases the availability of substances that repair tissues.
Cortisol also curbs functions that would be nonessential or detrimental in a fight-or-flight situation. It alters immune system responses and suppresses the digestive system, the reproductive system and growth processes. This complex natural alarm system also communicates with regions of your brain that control mood, motivation and fear.
The body’s stress-response system is usually self-limiting. Once a perceived threat has passed, hormone levels return to normal. As adrenaline and cortisol levels drop, your heart rate and blood pressure return to baseline levels, and other systems resume their regular activities.
But when stressors are always present and you constantly feel under attack, that fight-or-flight reaction stays turned on.
The long-term activation of the stress-response system — and the subsequent overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones — can disrupt almost all your body’s processes. This puts you at increased risk of numerous health problems, including:
Memory and concentration impairment
That’s why it’s so important to learn healthy ways to cope with the stressors in your life. The aim of this retreat is to help you with exactly that.
By stripping away your daily stressors and constant disruptions from online activities, work and close surroundings. Practice of yoga, meditation, walks in untouched nature, healthy food and quiet sleeps. This retreat offers you a complete reset of your natural body functions and return you to your primal state, PRESENCE.
