Dawn Harlow: Vakkaru Maldives’ First Visiting Wellness Practitioner of 2021

Dawn Harlow
Luxury resort, Vakkaru Maldives is welcoming Dawn Harlow as the resort’s first visiting wellness practitioner of 2021.

With this new year representing a longed-for fresh start, Vakkaru Maldives is welcoming Dawn Harlow as the resort’s first visiting wellness practitioner of 2021. Dawn Harlow is a spiritual guide, Kundalini yoga and meditation teacher, life coach and master in breathwork who will be in residence from 20 January to 17 February 2021.

She will lead a series of private and group sessions dedicated to providing guests with strength, clarity, calmness and purpose over the months to come. Trained in Kundalini yoga in Rishikesh on the banks of the Ganges in India and a decade-long student of humanology (the science of understanding human nature), Dawn has long worked on a private basis with clients the world over and regularly leads wellbeing retreats internationally.

During the last year, each of us has faced grief and sadness; a subtle feeling of fear and uncertainty has rocked our world and this has led to despair, separation and loss. Kundalini yoga renews and repairs the nervous system, heals neuroses and quietens negative thoughts. It gives a new beginning and is perfect for beginners. For all those who want to induce change in 2021, starting something new provides a way to feel brand new.

Dawn Harlow said.

However, her residency at Vakkaru will differ from every programme she has previously offered. Vakkaru recently launched Vakkare, a unique new hospitality concept in the Maldives that places the concept of care at the core of all the resort offers.

Additionally, 2021 sees Vakkaru launch 50 Shades of Blue, an extended programme of events, experiences and special activities to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the resort’s Baa Atoll home being designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Dawn was inspired by both those developments, and the unprecedented events of 2020, to facilitate highly personalised treatments and encounters that will enable guests to release deep-seated traumas and painful memories. Her objective is to empower every individual to unlock their unique gifts and talents and to live to their true potential.

Alongside deeply attentive and empathetic private and group yoga and meditation sessions, one of the new services offered by Dawn will be From Blue to a New You. Sensitively recognising the depression and fear which so many have faced over the last year, this personalised and private retreat runs for three days or longer and will see Dawn provide participants with tailored guidance and coaching to overcome stress, burnout and anxiety.

During Journey through the Chakras retreats, meditation, life coaching and personalised teachings will allow guests to clear their subconscious mind of the stresses and strains of the last few months, to be replaced with a deep sense of peace, newfound energy and a soaring sense of creativity. Vakkaru recently launched a new range of permanently available Ayurvedic treatments, many of which also focus on the body’s chakras, or energy points, and which would pair well with many of the services offered by Dawn.

With these and other offerings being held at Vakkaru’s overwater Merana Spa, also available during Dawn’s residency will be special detoxes that provide mental and emotional release alongside physical cleansing, and healing gong sessions that will realign and restore the nervous system while also endowing a sense of joy and inner peace.

Whatever treatment guests may choose, consistent throughout will be Dawn’s commitment to ensuring therapies and sessions provide a solid basis for guests to enjoy inner peace and prosperity over the year to come.

The Nautilus will host two senior practitioners from the world’s most renowned holistic wellness retreat. From 16th to 26th August 2023, Ananda in the Himalayas will be at The Nautilus. Combining Ananda’s specialist Ayurvedic knowledge with The Nautilus’s timeless hospitality offering, this residency will provide the ultimate restorative wellness experience.

Exploring the Restorative Wellness Experiences

Interested guests can also explore the treatments in the comfort of guest houses and residences.

The two practitioners, Mr Sandeep Dhamada and Ms Krishna Karki, are some of Ananda’s most accomplished and expert holistic therapists. As a follow-up to these speciality treatments, The Nautilus guests will also benefit from an online consultation with an Ayurvedic physician. This will further enhance the holistic benefits of the treatments in addition to the overall experience. Ananda’s gourmet Ayurvedic cuisine is available to consume anywhere on the island, incorporating anti-inflammatory properties, with fundamental food tastes carefully combined with macronutrients.

Ananda in the Himalayas is one of the world’s leading luxury wellness retreats, aligning with the rejuvenating spirit of The Nautilus. Nestled in the Himalayan foothills, the birthplace of Ayurveda, Yoga and meditation, Ananda integrates these ancient practices with therapy. The partnership first launched in 2022 and this year’s iteration enhances the already extensive wellness offering with a series of curated experiences for guests looking to rebalance their body, soul and mind.

Specialty Treatments Offered by Ananda at The Nautilus:

  • Ananda Touch with Reflexology (90 Mins)- A rhythmic flowing massage with rose-scented oils. The treatment releases tension and stress combined with the stimulation of reflex points. This practice aims to restore energy flow throughout the entire body and foster balance within the body and mind.
  • Indian Head Massage with Reflexology (90 Mins)– This ancient experience relaxes, tones, and eases muscle tension. It also aids in eliminating toxins by stimulating circulation. Following this, a massage is administered to the feet, applying pressure on the soles to restore healthy energy flow throughout the body.
  • Indian Head Massage with Shiatsu (90 Mins)– A traditional massage which provides deep relaxation. Following this, Shiatsu is applied. This is a full body pressure point experience that enhances circulation and boosts the immune system.
  • Himalayan Honey and Rose Facial with Foot Massage (90 mins)– This stimulating and refreshing facial uses a blend of sandalwood and rose essential oils. We massage pure organic honey harvested from the Himalayas into the skin and apply a mask of cooling cucumber. As the mask hydrates your skin, indulge in a soothing foot massage that stimulates reflex points.
  • Ananda Moksha (90 Mins)– A full body massage which uses traditional Ayurvedic therapeutic techniques. The holistic therapy draws inspiration from the concept of Moksha, signifying a liberation of the senses and a release for the free flow of Prana or energy.
