May 2023 Newsletter

May is fast approaching, which means it’s almost time to celebrate the most important woman in our lives.  Mother’s Day is on Sunday, 14 May, and as usual we have a wonderful promotion to spoil her:  Book two Love & Gratitude Journeys for only R2400 for two people and receive complimentary glasses of BabylonstorenChardonnay and a lovely gift box for mom. Alternatively, this can be booked without the gift box for R2000 for two and is valid for bookings Monday to Friday and Sundays throughout the month of May.

This is, without a doubt, my favourite Chardonnay! Who would have known that I will discover a love for wine in my 40’s?! Better late than never I suppose…

Our Sunrise Yoga will take place on the 7th of May, please book early to avoid disappointment.

May is also Retreat Madness here at Woodlands Spa, book 4 people for our Healing Retreat and receive a 10% discount each. Valid for check in on any day during the month of May.

The Chakras:  Solar Plexus – Power, Strength, and Ego

This month I wanted to continue the discussion we’ve had over the last few months on the chakras and the role they play, in not only our bodies, but in our spiritual well-being.  As you probably know, we are running monthly workshops this year to address all 7 of them.

Following my April newsletter where I shared my gut health issues, will we be hosting our monthly workshop for May all around the solar plexus.

The solar plexus is an important part of the human body, both anatomically and spiritually. It is located above the stomach and below the chest and is responsible for regulating body functions like heart rate and digestion. The solar plexus chakra is associated with power, strength, and ego. In May, there will be a workshop dedicated to exploring this chakra and its importance.

The solar plexus chakra is responsible for confidence and self-esteem, but when blocked, it can lead to either pushing people around or difficulty in setting boundaries and asking for what one wants. The workshop aims to help individuals unlock their personal power and live from their inner core, without seeking validation or approval from the outside.

Opening the solar plexus chakra can help restore one’s sense of purpose in life and give the confidence to pursue goals and aspirations unapologetically and courageously.

I attended a kundalini yoga session at Retreat Yourself with Undine Whande and it was incredible! I completely opened my blocked solar plexus and have fell in love with kundalini. I met one of the most incredible kundalini teachers, Renata, and she will be starting kundalini yoga sessions at the spa every Saturday morning at 8am – from the 13th of May 2023. Please drop in and join us.

According to the research of Dr. Cross, the solar plexus chakra is associated with career, capabilities, and self-esteem. So, opening this chakra will help you have the confidence to let go of control and restore your sense of purpose in life.

My prayer for May for each guest is that you can unlock your inner fire and have a balanced solar plexus chakra. That you can trust your inner guidance without any doubt and follow your intuition without hesitation.

And what’s more important, that you won’t feel the need for anyone’s approval or validation when it comes to your decisions, big or small.

On a larger scale, that you will unapologetically and courageously pursue your goals and aspirations in life.

Love, Tania
