alignment and movement retreat

Combining insights 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.

Enjoying a hilltop setting overlooking the Aegean Sea and just a few minutes’ drive from its own Beach Club, Amanzoe provides a serene setting for this journey designed to bring balance, lightness and ease of motion back to your body.

During the retreat, body awareness will be emphasised as it plays an integral role in the process of re-organising muscles for more dynamic movement. This is done through strengthening weaker, neglected muscles and releasing tension in overworked muscle groups, thereby achieving a greater efficiency of movement allowing for more endurance, better posture and greater joint mobility.

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.

In addition to the physical benefits derived from the movements and stretches, Watsu is a major catalyst for stress relief and has been welcomed as a primary modality in rehabilitation by aquatic therapists around the world.

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.

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.

Aman’s postural assessment precedes any Pilates training and is suitable for everyone, from the desk-bound executive to the champion triathlete. Through this we are able to provide informed and intelligent advice on how to take care of your body and choose an exercise programme that will most benefit your body and improve your lifestyle.

A Pilates consultant and clinical therapist with more than 25 years of experience in movement therapy and rehabilitation, IVANA DANIELL developed the concept of Pilates at Amanresorts and its signature postural assessment.

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.

Cranial osteopaths are trained to feel a subtle shape change present in all body tissues – the Cranial Rhythm – which is disrupted by tension. Practitioners compare an individual’s rhythm to what is considered ideal. This indicates any present strain or past tensions the body is carrying. It also gives insight into the overall condition of the body.

JOHN LOFTUS has 30 years of experience as a cranial osteopath and works with Aman Spa at the Connaught in London.
