Complementary Preparation for Ceremonies
A relaxed composure and comfortable posture are of great importance during the ceremony process and connection to the master plants. Amy, our in-house energy worker has carefully devised a 30-40 minute gentle yoga routine to support you into your ceremony process. With a breathwork and energy-tuning warm-up to aid your receptivity, Amy will work on opening and relaxing. Combining yoga, tai-chi and controlled breathing, she can help you to find your comfortable sense-of-self and feel relaxed and ready for what lies ahead.
If your stay at Willkamayu includes rest days and you would like a personal one-to-one session with Amy, please let us know and we can arrange a suitable time. Through studying many styles of yoga, Amy provides personal yoga sessions which explore the relationship with the body and work with the union of breath and movement to support one’s introspective or spiritual journey.
After an initial consultation, considering areas of tension or restriction in the body, as well as prior experience and expectation, together we form our yoga session, especially for you.
My approach to yoga is gentle, explorative and we guide through supportive encouragement and empowerment. Our aim is to enable each student to form a relationship with body and mind, on their terms, in the comfort of their own personal space in which they can navigate their own development to enable a continual practice for life. This integral daily activity incorporates yoga, meditation, breathwork, energy management and elements of ceremony preparation. This style of work can be described as spiritual attunment.
Amy also offers a gentle one hour, full body, Swedish style massage or a 40 minute back, neck and shoulder massage, to loosen you up and provide relaxation, either before or after your ceremony. You can choose from a selection of local herbal essential oils such as Muña, Arrayán, Palo Santo, Cacao or Hierba Luisa (Lemon Verbena), or more traditional massage oils such as Lavenda and Organic Orange. Please let us know on your arrival and we will discuss the best time for us to schedule the session.
