Just published, The Spa Guide names the crème de la crème of spas around the world. Halaveli, with its Valmont and Ila Spa, is listed as one the most sought-after spas for anti-ageing set against an idyllic island backdrop. ‘It’s as decadent as you want it to be, but the real indulgence is just stopping and letting go.’

Of the spa, they write:

‘Thrillingly, through the face hole of the massage bed, you can watch violet, jade-green and sunshine-yellow reef fish swim below you until the Balinese therapist’s hands send you into shut-eyed oblivion.’

The latest June edition of Condé Nast Traveller is on sale now, and includes The Spa Guide 2013.

How yoga can improve your health

Yoga teacher Steve Bracken has spent the last three weeks teaching at Constance Halaveli,Maldives. Here, he writes how yoga can improve our health and wellbeing.

Finding ways to deal with life’s challenges

If we wish to keep moving forward in our lives, we need to embrace the challenges that life brings our way.

This often entails seeking new solutions to our problems that may involve a radical shift of perspective, stepping into a totally new life situation, or more often than not, just a minor tweak to get us back into the flow of our lives.

A minor tweak though still takes awareness and demonstrates a willingness not to stagnate. We  know when we are on the right track as we are rewarded by a sense of aliveness.

Expanding our awareness through yoga

This same attitude applies to our yoga practice. If we challenge ourselves by opening up to new teachers and new ways of approaching a posture we will enrich our practice. We may discover things that previously we may not have ever considered. Equally, the principles we can learn through a yoga practice can enrich other areas of our lives.

Steve Bracken at Constance Halaveli, Maldives

Some examples of this would be:

  • Acceptance - Acceptance of our body with its limitations and from this place encouraging  positive change. If we try to force our body it will create injury and discomfort. If we do nothing then there will be no improvement. If we regularly nurture it with love and compassion it will respond. Through acceptance we learn to listen to the messages of the body and respond accordingly and in doing so we can become present and enjoy the journey. We learn to work with the body and not against it.
  • Breath - If we can breathe fully we can relax, even if we are still working hard. If we are straining for breath then there is tension in the body and mind. We need to become aware of what is causing the tension and adjust ourselves accordingly and in doing so release it.  Only then can a sense of spaciousness occur that allows the breath to flow without restriction. When this occurs the body and mind are working optimally.
  • Foundation - the stronger and more rooted our foundation the less effort is required in a posture. If our foundation is unstable then the resulting strain will permeate throughout the whole structure of the body. We must always come back to our foundation to check whether it is secure and connected to the ground beneath us.

As we work with the principles of movement and explore that which creates health and wellbeing, we find that the underlying concepts apply to all areas of our lives. In fact what is truly good for us is good for everyone and everything. We also come to know that when we work with these principles on a regular basis we feel both happier and more energised.

These are all good reasons to experience new yoga classes and new teachers wherever you find yourself in the world. To learn, to be revitalised, and to reconnect to important principles for both health and life.

Valmont supports coral reef regeneration programme in Maldives

Valmont has extended its partnership with Constance Halaveli to support reef health and biodiversity on the beautiful Maldivian island.

Having opened the Valmont spa at Halaveli in 2012, the leading Swiss skincare brand is now backing an ambitious sustainable initiative to support rehabilitating the coral reef in the Maldives.

Creating an artificial reef to promote marine life

To encourage the coral reef to grow quickly and provide shelter for other marine animals, we have created a man-made underwater structure, where broken coral fragments can be attached.

Seduced by the regeneration programme that began a year ago at Halaveli, Didier Guillon CEO of Valmont Group has chosen to donate $5,000 per year, to buy and maintain these structures. This move is a reflection of the brand’s commitment to global sustainable co-operation initiatives.

How Constance manages the Reefscaping program

The initiative was originally started in 2011, backed by Mr. Vallet, CEO of the Constance Group, himself heavily committed to sustainable development projects.

The Constance Halaveli Spa team now manage the program, backed by the support, enthusiasm and deep involvement of Halaveli resort General Manager Renato W Chizzola.
