One of the secrets to success in life is knowing when and how to rest. Summer holidays are a highlight of most people’s year and this year you’ll be glad to know there’s something on offer that really embraces the spirit of relaxation and recuperation. Holistic Holidays have operated yoga and therapy holidays in the constant summer biosphere of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands for a decade. With a 4 hour flight from Dublin, this is Ireland’s closest desert island. Our main man, Paul Congdon, went for one such visit and said it was lovely.
Their formula is currently evolving to incorporate weeks of Life Change Holidays: helping you bring about the life you want. You can enjoy yoga, shiatsu, massage, reiki, reflexology and kinesiology, with never more than 10 guests per week. The yoga sessions are suitable for all standards, including beginners, with exceptional tuition. Sessions are in the morning by the pool in the botanic garden with the benefit of totally fresh ocean air.
The exclusive Villa Isis was custom designed for small group therapy holidays, incorporating a high-tech lounge with panoramic ocean and island views. The villa is in a quiet location just outside the village of Tias, which offers many amenities, including tapas bars, restaurants, health-food shops and supermarkets. Breakfast is served every day, comprising, fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurts, local breads, conserves, soya and regular milks. Self-catering is available to individuals who wish to prepare their own food, and in-house catering is available on group weeks.
Accommodation is viewable online. You can choose from a twin room with en-suite facilities, to a luxury suite or dedicated single rooms. Direct Charter and scheduled flights are frequent and inexpensive. You can come any day, subject to an available flight and stay for as long as you like, although they do recommend a minimum stay of a week.
There are places of outstanding natural beauty, unspoilt beaches, volcanic tours and cultural attractions well worth a visit. Lanzarote is a biosphere reserve with 300 volcanoes and three designated tourist areas. The road system is excellent with very light traffic and short journeys to beaches, attractions and shopping areas.
Over the last 10 years they have conducted extensive research into Ancient Wisdom and new discoveries regarding the Quantum Field. Their first Life Change Holidays have returned rave reviews, with powerful breakthroughs experienced by people who are ready to look at the way they lead their lives.
“Change arises from a voluntary commitment rather than any form of coercion. Often a situation arises whereby the challenge of external factors help us to realise that the necessity of considering new ways of making life more tolerable and fulfilling. We have come to such a point in time as the implications of world economics and systems, as well as planetary, solar and galactic oddities are forcing new circumstances upon us, not to mention the deeper meaning of the 2012 mystery which has predicted all of the above.
Life change does not have to be inspired by ancient wisdom, quantum mechanics or insights into the human psyche, although in a wider context they are all very relevant. At a practical level, change is about having an open mind to new approaches that make life work for the better. Realising that there are powerful proven methods of changing your life, in any way you desire, is a compelling invitation to investigate. If you are not familiar with this subject, you would need an open mind. More importantly you would need to suspend any disbelief, as the first subscribers to Galileo’s new ideas would have done! Life Change Holidays are becoming an antidote to the planetary challenges we are all experiencing. They can help reduce suffering while manifesting what you want in your life.”
