Free Beachfront Meditation – Reserve Your Self Contained Accommodation (Gold Coast) Now
The best thing about a beach holiday is you can tailor it according to your preferences. You can make it fun, loud and festive: engage in games on the shore, sign up for water sports and adventure rides, and dance, drink and party by night. On the other hand, you can seize your beach holiday as an opportunity to escape from the stress and noise of the city and get some peace and quiet.
If you’re looking forward to the latter, then you might want to book your self-contained accommodation, Gold Coast tourism authorities say, for the last weekend this August. Why this particular weekend, you may ask? That’s because on Sunday, August 30, you can participate in a beachfront meditation session offered by the local yoga studio, Yoga Meditation Studio Coolangatta. The session is scheduled from 4:30 to 6 p.m., and will be held at 124 Marine Parade Coolangatta. Attendance is for free (donations are welcome).
Those who have previous experience with yoga know that mantra mediation, an ancient form of meditation to music, is one of the most powerful ways to put your mind at ease and finally let go of the worries. The chant, when repeated over and over, creates a vibrating sound that makes you feel relaxed and at peace with the world – something that may not instantly come to you if you’re simply sitting there and trying to will away your distracting thoughts. After each session, you’ll feel so relaxed but also curiously rejuvenated and energised to take on life’s challenges once more.
If you’re new to yoga or don’t have any experience, you’re completely welcome as well. You don’t need to be a yoga fan. You don’t need to have a good voice. You don’t even need to sing during the session – simply listening to the sounds around you can already work its wonders. In fact, aside from guiding the mantra meditation session, the yoga teachers will also be teaching participants breathing meditation exercises – something you can take away and practise after the holiday, by yourself at home.
After the meditation, don’t leave just yet. You’re invited to some refreshments and you’ll have a chance to meet and connect with other people who attended the session. Who knows? You might gain new friends and connect with kindred spirits who, just like you, are looking into a more mindful lifestyle.
For a real stress-free stay, it’s best to secure your beach front holiday accommodation this month. Take note that the Beachfront Meditation event coincides with another much-awaited event, the Botanical Bazaar, so you might want to book early and not miss the best rooms at the Golden Riviera Beachfront resort. Tranquil, beautiful, transformative – make it happen during your next beach holiday.
