Slow joins the International Yoga Festival 2017

The teachings of Yoga, both the physical practice and spiritual development, are integral to the philosophy at Slow Villas. Yoga teaches us to slow down, to breathe, to pause.  “Yoga is not merely for our bodies, but rather our bodies, minds, hearts and souls. Yoga literally means “Union” – union of breath with body, union of the mind with muscles, and most importantly union of the self with the divine” (IYF, 2017) At Slow we encourage guests to try yoga at some of the wonderful studios on the island, or perhaps deepen their practice with a private lesson in our yoga studio area within the beautiful Slow Spa. Our annual yoga retreats aim to provide a truly holistic experience for the body and mind, and a genuine opportunity to slow down and reboot the system…. If you hadn’t already realized… we LOVE yoga at Slow. This time instead of bringing Yoga to Slow, we are bringing Slow to Yoga! Julie will be representing Slow Villas & Spa and Slow Retreats at the International Yoga Festival in Rishikesh from the 1st to the 7th March 2017. She will also be working organically with the community members of Secret Retreats […]

Air Festival

Imagine a beautiful, quiet, white sanded and full of harmony small and unique island. Imagine a place where Indonesian people share their routine with travellers, occidental people who came there one day and never left.Imagine paradise, then you will imagine Gili Air. Three years ago, our beloved little gem on earth was celebrating a very special event for the first time: the Gili Air Festival. The program? A few days partying, dancing under the stars, sharing only good vibes with one main purpose: respecting the philosophy and good health of this beautiful island. This year, for the third time, it’s time to celebrate again, to thank Gili Air together for every single thing the island represents. For the third time, we are planning to dance together again, for three consecutive nights. The Gili Air Festival is coming back from March 31th to April 2th included. We are going to dance, to shine and to smile all night long…and we want to make it right. No plastic is welcome, no bad trash…We want to take care of the three natural stages that will be built in order to welcome us with a big variety of music and artists. You shouldn’t miss […]

Valentine’s Day

The Perfect Union: According to the Greek myth about the origin of love each human was once a ‘rounded whole’ with two faces, two backs, and four arms and legs. They were formidable and bold and they foolishly attacked the Gods. To weaken them Zeus cut them in half saying ‘if this doesn’t keep them quiet I will cut them again, and they can hop around on one leg!’ Love is the yearning of each half to find its original partner and return to a complete state. The perfect lovers are those who were originally joined together. If they find each other they wish to never be separated again and try to merge completely – to become once more a single being. Slow Villas is the perfect union of tranquility and intimacy – a place to focus on the people and experiences that make you complete. Romance is not the giving of expensive gifts; it is the quiet moment when you realise that to be happy you need only the person next to you. Relax with us this Valentines Day for a genuinely dreamy retreat – slow down – feel complete.    Our ‘Celebrate Love at Slow Villas and Spa’ […]
