Yoga and relaxation

A balanced yoga practice is known to rejuvenate the body, increase vitality, and train the mind to be strong and flexible in the face of stress and change. It balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system, and promotes creative potential. For many years now yoga has helped in healing the pain of physical illness, mental pressure, drug and alcohol dependence, and other addictive behaviors.

On a physical level, you will be able to first cleanse, then furnish all the cells and tissues of your body with the elements and the nutritional enzymes they need, thereby increasing physical well-being and helping you to stay slim, healthy, and vital. Bodily or emotional reactive symptoms are inevitable, as you will be carrying out a process of detoxification. They come in waves, often lasting just a few hours, rarely more than a day, and always changing.

Jolie Adventures staff members will with you throughout this process, reminding you that this is just a part of the process and that it will all pass. It is not uncommon to hear participants "complain" that they experienced no challenging symptoms whatsoever!

    "Jolie tailored a special yoga retreat for me: morning kundalini meditation, yoga and dancing in the afternoon, detox with a Russian yoga teacher, and western vegetarian food. She also arranged a massage with a deaf master. Great! This is what i needed after backpacking and eating on the streets of Asia for too long time."

    "Jolie Adventure is a small but professional tour operator in Yunnan. I found Jolie via the internet and the company philosophy appealed to me. I booked an individual tour with a very special itinerary, as I am specifically interested in the old Burma road and everything else reminding of WW II as well as old bridges. They arranged accommodation according to my requirements, a car, a driver and a guide, and Jolie herself accompanied me even at the first couple of days. They went to great length to accommodate my plans. And my trip was spectacular and very enjoyable.Therefore I can fully recommend Jolie Adventure for everyone who needs a special program in Yunnan."

    "Jolie was more than helpful in locating a kung-fu master for me in Dali, after arriving in China mainly to study kung fu and being dissapointed by a kung-fu temple in the mountains of Dali. Jolie was very efficient in getting me in touch with another master in Dali old town. It made my trip!"
