WHY PAUSE // PLAY // ESCAPES??
WHY WE CREATED A RELAXATION, MEDITATION, YOGA AND MASSAGE HOLIDAY (WITH A DIFFERENCE)...
We have crafted Pause // Play for hardworking urbanites who spend most of their time on the go, Pause // Play// Escapes has been developed as a balanced affair for those wanting a change from either the full-on 24/7 retreat/detox program incorporating a vegan diet and strictly no alcohol or the 100 mph holiday with too much indulgence that leaves you feeling exhausted.
In 2011, I (Cat), swapped being ‘crazy busy’ in a 24/7 work and social life in London for a more relaxed pace in the mediterranean as a body-worker and natural health adviser under the banner butterflytherapies.com Pause // Play was my way of exploring some modern ways to create space in a busy life, whilst still allowing the experience-hungry time to explore on their holiday.
“My friends and I wanted it all on our precious time off, exploring a new country, a beach or skiing holiday, a few nights out and most importantly time to slow down. I realised that no-one really offers that kind of combination ”
I (Lisa) am from Malta, but currently live in Stockholm. After spending the last 5 years living & teaching yoga in a small village in Malta, it has been a slight shock to the system to be back in the city, but I have developed an array of tools to help keep calm & cope with the pace of city life - all of which I would love to share with you. I also lived in London before Malta where I ran corporate & private events. I was no stranger to working 60 hour weeks and socialising on top, I found my yoga classes were the best way to maintain my health and sanity during that period and that inspired me to become a yoga teacher in the beginning. I created my own LahLah yoga studio in Malta, and through LahLah I met Cat. We began talking about our backgrounds and the benefits we both gained from the holistic approach to health and decided Pause // Play // Escapes would be a perfect way to share that wisdom wider.
