The program starts every Saturday or Sunday.
Massage is the study of anatomy in braille.
Learning massage will give you a lot of skills and virtures: giving love, sharing energy, taking care about someone, developing intuition and sensitivity.
Even it will not become your main profession, it is always useful to know how to make massage.
You will learn to perform traditional Balinese relaxing massage. Balinese massage is a full-body, deep-tissue, holistic treatment. Traditional Balinese massage uses a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure, reflexology, and aromatherapy to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and "qi" (energy) around your body, and bring a sense of well-being, calm and deep relaxation. Balinese massage uses a variety of techniques including skin rolling, kneading and stroking, and pressure-point stimulation, combined with the aromas of essential oils.
Sound healing course
In sound we are born, in sound we are healed.
Learn to work with the resonant vibrations of healing sounds.
The ancient art of sound therapy will be introduced to you in this course.

How sound changes the frequency of your brain;
Different types of sound healing instruments;
How to use them for deep relaxation and healing;
How to use instruments in group and individual sessions;
How to perform a sound massage for a person correctly;

Smell is a potent wizard that transports you across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived.
Immerse yourself in your inner world and find out what secrets you are hiding from yourself.
The purpose of aromapsychology is not only to find the problem, but also to provide a ready-made elixir for the normalization of physical and psychological health.
Aroma psychology is a technique that allows you to determine the characteristics of a person's psycho-emotional state, answering many questions related to you. If most of the time you live in captivity of negative emotions, depression, irritability, you cannot find yourself and your purpose, you want to improve your life and open streams of abundance in all areas, then Aroma Psychology is for you.
Your subconscious mind will choose exactly those essential oils that can destroy negative attitudes and open the way to harmonize your life. Based on the results of Aroma diagnostic, an individual resource blend will be created to be used within 21 days.
Essential oils have access to the limbic system of the brain, also called the "emotional brain," where the feelings and emotions of difficult and traumatic situations that we cannot control nor put in order using help of self-control or reason are blocked and stuck. These blockages negatively affect our health, relationships and destiny.
Essential oils are able to penetrate the limbic brain and break down those blocks that keep you from being happy. Scents have a subconscious or unconscious effect on our mental states, help to show more positive personality traits, and therefore make us happier. This is an amazing tool of self-knowledge for talking with your subconscious and Soul, thanks to which you will receive answers to exciting questions that are hidden in ourselves.
Your experience on the retreat will include participation in three workshops. READ MORE about aroma psychology workshops offered in Santhika Retreat Center.

REVIEWS FROM OUR GUESTS
The masters of our own space
I honestly find it hard to find the words, to sum up this experience. I was often out of my comfort zone but loved every moment. I recommend going with an intention to say YES to every opportunity. You can choose how much you want to delve into the experience, and I am glad I jumped straight in. I feel full of life. Thank you for absolutely everything!"
Beautiful experience yet!
Amazing and caring team (instructors, staff, cooks and support teams!!!) I have traveled around the would and have never felt so cared for, so calm and so motivated by my surroundings! If I had to rate between 0 and 10 I would give the Spa, location, staff and support teams a 15 out of 10!!!! The management also was perfect, flexible and always supportive, literally 24/7!!! If you have the time and the money to go to the Santhika Retreat Center you will leave with riches beyond your expectations! I never write reviews!!!! But Santhika Retreat Center is truly worth the time, energy and work you put into it! Also, the other guests were from around the world, diverse and of all age groups! This made for a stimulating and rewarding exchange on the mat, during breaks, on field trips and around the group’s meal table! Why are you still reading this???? You should be booking your flight and making your reservation!
Do yourself a favour and book it!
I had such a lovely time on the yoga retreat! The yoga had such variety and I learnt so much. It was the perfect break for a mum of three travelling alone! I’m not a full-time yogi, but asanas were adjusted for me, and the meditation was beyond words. Do yourself a favour and book it! Thank you so much for everything!
