Sylvia King, Founder of Vovanga Retreats
I founded Vovanaga Retreats to create beautiful uplifting wellness experiences that last a lifetime. I wanted a place of tranquility and rejuvenation where you can reconnect with yourself and away from the craziness of everyday life.
I started attending retreats of all kinds over a decade ago. I experienced everything from meditation retreats, juice fasting, fitness, yoga etc.
From my very first one, I fell in love with retreat life, for it's serenity, openness and the new experiences and it's people.
It gave me a sense of clarity, inner peace, perspective like never before and I would always leave feeling like I was the best version of myself!
I wanted to share the best of this experience and let others discover magic of retreat life!
In 2014 I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist and Naturopathic Practitioner.
My personal journey and interest in this lifestyle extends beyond the qualification and clinical practice. I grew up in a holistic environment and where I learnt about natural and alternative healing practices from a very early age. These teachings were the foundations to everything that followed.
As a Naturopathic practitioner I believe in the healing power of nature. I use non toxic natural therapies to restore physiological, physchological and structural balance.
I was first introduced to meditation by a buddist in 2010 which is when my meditation practice started.
It was then I discovered it's powers to take control of the mind to become peaceful, focused and an increased awareness that led to a generally happier way of life.
Since then, I have continuously expanded and developed my practice through courses, 1:1 teachings, retreats and my personal experimentation
From all my practice in nutrition, meditation and alternative medicine, I felt strongly felt that there should be a place to bring this all together.
After all these years, if there's one thing I am certain of, is that you can't just have a healthy body... and you can't just have a healthy mind, but they both have to be addressed for optimal health and happiness.
At Voavanga, we provide this within the context of experience because we also believe that that your wellness journey should be fun!
Each retreat is an opportunity to be part of this.
To improve your health, fitness, experience new things, gain new perspective, relax, meet new people and recharge in a wonderful healing environment where you will glow inside and out!
