August 17, 2016 – Fuerteventura, Spain – The pressures of everyday life in a modern world seem to be growing. We all try and find ways to take a break and find rejuvenation at home, but as we all know it can be hard. The constant demands of life pull attention away from relaxation and back into ‘reality’, and deadlines and work keep us in constant motion. Azulfit understands this and is committed to creating experiences and holidays that provide respite from modern stresses and providing solutions and support, to their guests and community, to sustain healthy practices when they return home. Azulfit are really excited to announce their new Surya Pilates and yoga retreat near Fuerteventura, Spain.
Azulfit began as a labour of love for master Pilates instructor, Jamie Isaac and his wife Karissa. He believed that mindful movement and balance are essential to discovering a vibrant, healthy lifestyle. Since its founding, Azulfit has grown to include many different disciplines, including yoga, meditation, nutrition, Tai Chi, and more.
The Azulfit offering includes a series of retreats at their new Surya yoga retreat in Fuerteventura, Spain. The retreat is open year-round, and guests may choose to stay as little as a week, with an option to extend the stay for several weeks at a time. The retreat experience is designed with the guests in mind and they can choose:
- Complete Retreat: This retreat is a journey of self-exploration. Participants engage in yoga and Pilates, mixed with new meditation techniques that can be carried back home. The focus of the retreat is to start a dialogue between mind and body towards attaining harmony, both within oneself and with the environment.
- Detox Retreat: Chemicals and preservatives from food or the world around us leave toxins in the body that affect mood and brain function and make us feel slow, tired or prone to illness. The detox retreat teaches guests how to prepare cleansing foods at home, whilst combining the onsite detox with cleansing movement and exercise.
