A Wellness Hunt: Finding Inner Peace and Joy

A Wellness Hunt: Finding Inner Peace and Joy

Spring is a time of renewal, symbolising new beginnings and the blossoming of life. At BodyHoliday, seasons take on a deeper meaning as guests embark on a journey of self-discovery, finding inner peace and joy through a unique wellness hunt. Through a blend of wellness activities like yoga, Tai Chi, sound healing, and meditation classes, discover how you can uncover the true treasures within yourself.


Yoga is a timeless practice that harmonises the body, mind, and spirit. At BodyHoliday, spring brings a renewed focus on yoga, with classes tailored to all levels of experience. From energising sunrise sessions overlooking the tranquil Cariblue Beach to restorative sunset flows at the refreshing Zen deck, guests have the opportunity to deepen their practice and connect with the present moment. Through asanas (poses), pranayama (breathwork), and meditation, guests cultivate a sense of inner calm and balance, laying the foundation for a fulfilling experience.

The classes, which are led by the experienced Mya Cato, offer a space for self-reflection and introspection, allowing individuals to connect with their inner selves on a deeper level. As guests engage in various yoga poses, they may encounter physical sensations, emotions, and thoughts arising within them. Through gentle observation and non-attachment, guests learn to acknowledge these sensations without being overwhelmed by them. This practice of self-awareness and acceptance fosters a sense of inner peace as they develop a greater understanding of themselves and their place in the world. Over time, the practice of yoga becomes not only a physical exercise but also a journey towards inner harmony and serenity.


As the gentle movements of Tai Chi flow gracefully, guests led by Tai Chi Masters Edwin and Deano find themselves immersed in a meditative dance with nature. Tai Chi, an ancient Chinese martial art, is renowned for its ability to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and enhance overall well-being. Tai Chi classes at the resort offer a tranquil sanctuary where guests can slow down, synchronize their movements with their breath, and attune themselves to the rhythm of the surrounding environment. Whether practised on the Zen deck at dawn or amidst the lush greenery of the resort’s Coubaril Valley, Tai Chi becomes a moving meditation, guiding guests on a path to inner peace and harmony.

Moreover, Tai Chi has been shown to have numerous physiological benefits that contribute to increased joy. Regular practice of Tai Chi has been linked to reduced levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, and increased production of endorphins, the body’s natural mood elevators. These physiological changes not only alleviate stress and anxiety but also foster a sense of joy and well-being. Additionally, Tai Chi promotes better circulation and flexibility, which can alleviate physical discomfort and enhance overall vitality, further contributing to a sense of joy and satisfaction in one’s body and mind. Overall, the holistic nature of Tai Chi fosters joy by nurturing both mental and physical well-being, creating a profound sense of happiness and fulfilment in practitioners.


In the realm of sound healing, BodyHoliday takes on a melodious dimension, as guests immerse themselves in the therapeutic vibrations of crystal bowls, Tibetan singing bowls, and other harmonic instruments. Sound healing sessions provide a profound opportunity to release tension, clear energy blockages, and awaken the body’s innate healing mechanisms. Under the guidance of skilled practitioners, guests embark on a sonic journey, allowing the resonant frequencies to penetrate every cell and restore balance to mind, body, and spirit. As the soothing sounds wash over them, guests experience a profound sense of relaxation and inner peace, setting the stage for a transformative holiday.

Moreover, sound healing has the potential to synchronise brainwaves, bringing about a state of heightened awareness and presence. When the brainwaves align with the frequencies of the sound, it can induce a meditative state similar to that achieved through deep meditation practices. This meditative state is often accompanied by a sense of euphoria and inner bliss, leading to increased feelings of joy and happiness. Furthermore, sound healing sessions often involve group settings, allowing individuals to connect with others in a shared experience of healing and joy. The communal aspect of sound healing can foster a sense of belonging and interconnectedness, amplifying the positive effects and creating a supportive environment for guests to explore their emotions and cultivate joy together.


At the heart of the experience at BodyHoliday lies the practice of meditation, a timeless art of introspection and self-discovery. Guided meditation sessions offer guests the opportunity to quiet the chatter of the mind, cultivate present-moment awareness, and tap into the wellspring of inner peace that resides within. Whether seated in stillness amidst the serenity of a meditation garden or participating in a walking meditation along the shoreline, guests are invited to explore various techniques for quieting the mind and accessing deeper states of consciousness. Through regular meditation practice, participants not only find solace amidst the chaos of daily life but also uncover a profound sense of joy and interconnectedness that permeates every aspect of their being.

Furthermore, meditation facilitates a profound connection with one’s inner self, fostering a deep understanding of one’s emotions, desires, and fears. By delving into the depths of their consciousness, individuals can uncover unresolved inner conflicts and traumas, gradually releasing them and paving the way for inner harmony. Through practices like loving-kindness meditation, individuals cultivate feelings of compassion and empathy towards themselves and others, fostering harmonious relationships and reducing interpersonal conflicts. Additionally, as meditation encourages a shift from a reactive to a responsive mindset, individuals become less prone to impulsivity and aggression, opting instead for thoughtful and considerate actions. Ultimately, by fostering a profound sense of peace within oneself, meditation radiates outward, positively influencing relationships, communities, and the world at large.

As spring unfolds at BodyHoliday, guests embark on a holistic journey of self-discovery, finding inner peace and joy through yoga, Tai Chi, sound healing, and meditation classes. In the tranquil embrace of nature, amidst the harmonious sounds of the ocean and the gentle rustle of palm fronds, participants are invited to let go of stress, cultivate mindfulness, and reconnect with their true essence. Whether embarking on a sunrise yoga practice, participating in a Tai Chi session at Coubaril Valley, immersing themselves in the healing vibrations of sound, or delving into the depths of meditation, guests discover that the greatest gift of all is the treasure of inner peace that resides within them.
