Samahita’s brain health upgrade program, Samahita Retreat’s classes, food, and support, and Samahita’s natural environment are keys for a total brain health upgrade to improve sleep, brain function, and start or enhance a meditation practice.
Your brain is involved in everything you do. Its health is vital to how you feel, think, age, perform, love, learn, and share. Circulation to and through your brain, known as cerebral blood flow as well as the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, indicates how well your brain performs and subsequently how you feel. You might be looking in several places to improve your health or fix what is bothering you. To do so, you must upgrade your brain’s health.
A typical day of the BHU program involves all the classes in our Yoga Core Cycle Program. which can include a morning indoor cycle (7 a.m.), breath class (7:30 a.m.), yoga asana class (8:30 to 10 a.m.), followed by a break for breakfast and lunch, then a brain health session, an infrared therapy session, check in with a senior teacher, then afternoon fitness (4 p.m.), cycle (4:30 p.m.), and gentle yoga class (5 p.m.), dinner, and evening meditation (7:30 p.m.).
Light therapy to enhance your cellular energy level, so you feel better and your brain can work better. When your brain works better, you will do everything with much greater involvement and energy.
Brainwave modulation through audio-visual entrainment so you enter complete relaxation and cultivate the meditator’s mind. AVE stimulates certain brainwave states, in particular, the alpha range, to improve brain function, reduce inflammation in the brain, help you think better, and behave nicer.
A targeted meditation session with biofeedback to let you know the state of your mind and how you are actually doing as you sit and attempt meditative practice.
One-on-one sitting and guidance with one of Samahita’s senior teachers, discussion on anything that may have arisen through the session, and support to help understand the process and keep at it.
Light therapy is as old as the sun. Human beings thrived and grew due to exposure to the full light spectrum of the sun.
Samahita Retreat will use a device which utilizes a cutting-edge, non-invasive, drug-free approach to help you sleep, relax, repair, learn, and just overall function better.
Sessions with a wearable mini-EEG device that listens to your brain while you sit (or lay) during the timed meditation session.
Samahita Retreat offers complimentary weekly excursions including a boat trip to a nearby remote island with snorkeling and a temple walk.
