The Shangri-La Villingili Resort and Spa offers special spiritual retreat

Five-star luxury Maldives hotel, the Shangri-La Villingili Resort and Spa, has announced it will host an exclusive wellness retreat with London-based spiritual guru and therapist Jody Shield. The first of its kind, the retreat will run from 12-22 April 2017 on the island of Villingili in the Maldives’ southernmost atoll.

During Jody’s 10-day residency at the island resort, guests can attend meditation workshops, motivational talks and coaching sessions with author and mindfulness teacher Jody. Within sight of the beach and Indian Ocean, participants at the retreat will be guided on a personalised journey using Jody's renowned holistic healing and anti-anxiety techniques to release symptoms of stress and worry.

According to Shangri-La, the intention is to:

“Create an exclusive wellness journey encouraging guests to process the past, be more present and create a life they love within this paradisiacal backdrop. With its untouched natural environment encouraging a deep connection with the elements, the island of Villingili is the perfect place for a spiritual retreat, and in turn, a reconnection to the self.”

Open to novices or practised meditators alike, the retreat includes four meditations to quieten the mind and reach a deeper level of awareness and inner calm. The workshops are aimed at nurturing skills that guests can take away and implement in their everyday lives.

Guests can also attend two motivational talks, an exclusive reading from Jody's new book LifeTonic – a modern toolbox to heal your life and soothe your soul, and can also benefit from one-to-one sessions with Jody.

The retreat includes ancient Ayurveda treatments at the resort’s CHI spa – a dedicated spa village with private treatment villas, tropical gardens and steam rooms. Yoga sessions and a healthy eating plan with a personalised menu created by the resort's chef is also part of the wellness package. Meals feature traditional Ayurvedic root waters, light suppers of locally-sourced fish, and herbs and vegetables grown in the chef's garden.

In a secluded beachside setting, the all-inclusive Shangri-La Villingili offers five-star service and deluxe accommodation. Other activities available at Shangri-La Villingili Resort & Spa include tennis, golf, diving, snorkelling, plus exploring the neighbouring islands and the local village communities by bike.
