Amanzoe. Movement Retreat


This May, Amanzoe will once again bring together three renowned specialists in a four- and seven-night retreat integrating a personalised approach to movement and realignment. Combining in sights from the expert movement specialist responsible for Aman’s Pilates programme, the gentle manipulation and realignment of osteopathy and the subtle energies and nurturing benefits of Watsu, this is the ideal retreat for individuals who feel that their movement has been compromised through stress, a sedentary lifestyle or simply the effects of repetitive day to day actions.

PILATES. A body-conditioning approach to exercise, Pilates helps build flexibility, strength and endurance as well as long, lean muscles. It emphasises spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing correctly and the development of a strong core to improve coordination and balance. A Pilates consultant and clinical therapist with more than 25 years of experience in movement therapy and rehabilitation, IVANA DANIELL developed the postural assessment used by Amanresorts.

CRANIAL OSTEOPATHY. Cranial osteopathy is an osteopathic treatment that encourages the release of stress and tension throughout the body, including the head. It is a gentle yet extremely effective approach and may be used in a wide range of conditions for people of all ages. JOHN LOFTUS has 30 years of experience as a cranial osteopath and works with Aman Spa at the Connaught in London.

WATSU. Watsu is a form of aquatic therapy developed in 1980 by Harold Dull. It is extremely relaxing and can be used to treat a wide range of conditions including various forms of chronic pain. A Watsu session involves being floated in warm water, supported in a Watsu therapist’s arms. The therapist moves the individual into various supported positions which stretch different parts of the body.

STEVE KARLE is an experienced aquatic bodywork specialist. Through his training with Harold Dull he has introduced and developed the concept of Watsu for Aman Spas. The retreat takes place between May 16-25, 2014, and special prices apply for Greek residents.
