Shanti Maurice has a few special offers for the discerning traveller which include celebrating your honeymoon or wedding anniversaries, teeing off at the 18-hole Avalon Golf Estate or connecting with your internal bliss with yoga retreats all year round.
The India-Mauritius link can be found in the majority of the Mauritian population who have Indian roots. Therefore, the bond between Indian spiritual practices such as Yoga and Meditation is undeniable. Shanti Maurice specifically promotes this connection through their Shanti Yoga Retreat which offers you authentic teachings at a pace that’s most comfortable for you.
To soak in the complete calming ocean vibe along with Yoga, you can opt between either the 5 days or the 7 days Yoga retreat. The speciality of this retreat is that it takes a leaf from how traditional yoga was taught, which was completely individualised. So, if you’re concerned that you’re not too flexible for Yoga or aren’t sure if you’d like the practice, you have little to worry, as you’ll be in the care of Yoga expert hands.
Shanti Maurice’s Yoga Masters who lead the retreat are schooled in the thorough traditions of Yoga and Meditation in both India and Mauritius. The Yoga Masters have the right blend of traditional body and mind sciences which they translate effectively for the modern practitioner. These masters are well versed in all aspects that constitute a yogic life such as – Sanskrit, Advaita Vedanta. If it is your intent to create a positive lifestyle, then there’s no better opportunity than exploring this with the Shanti Yoga Retreat.
If Yoga and Meditation have already piqued your interest, the retreat includes another generous opportunity to explore Ayurveda as well. The science of Ayurveda explains to us that each body is classified based on 3 doshas (elements/energies) and understanding our individual dosha is the first step to cultivating body-mind harmony. Your very first step into Shanti Yoga Retreat will be a wellness consultation by the resident Ayurvedic Doctor. This consultation will reveal your dosha and also recommend a specific wellness plan which consists of Yoga, Meditation and spa treatments over the course of the retreat.
Ayurveda and Yoga being sister sciences encourage the cultivation of the quality of Sattva. Roughly translated, Sattva is associated with purity, light and harmony. A harmonious life is when you’re in touch with your own internal rhythm which syncs perfectly with that of a world. This balance can be achieved on many levels and the first step is to nourish our body correctly through Sattvic foods.
The restaurants and chefs at Shanti Maurice will dish up some delicious and wholesome Sattvic food to balance your individual dosha. Keeping in mind that health and relaxation are key, you’ll be spoilt with choice with the wide variety of locally sourced fresh ingredients on your plate.
Indulge and dive deep into daily Yoga and Meditation classes where you will be lead through Yoga postures, breathing exercises and much more. The scenic surroundings, the laid-back beach vibe and the thriving tropical location make the perfect moment to enjoy these practices on the beach. The ocean waves gently lapping the shores make for the perfect background score as you dive deeper into the workings of your mind. The main aim of the Shanti Maurice Yoga Retreat is to not only introduce you to a Yoga and Meditation practice but to ensure that you incorporate these practices into your daily life. There are also daily lifestyle workshops where the Yoga masters will coach you on your lifestyle-related queries.
The Shanti Yoga Retreat’s daily 60-minute spa treatment is the perfect luxury add to the retreat.
