Cosmos JHB Wellness Retreat is a karma concept yoga studio and spa situated in Kempton Park that focus on revealing your natural beauty.
Yoga, which literally translates as "to unite", refers to the coming together of mind, body and spirit.
Here are some important facts for anyone who is considering joining a class:
You don't need to be flexible, strong, thin, vegetarian or vegan (insert any other mind-made labels here) to do yoga. The only thing yoga asks of you is to show up on your mat and to do the work. Nothing else.
Yoga is great for reducing stress and anxiety, and increasing muscle strength and tone.
Although there are many different styles of yoga (Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga etc.) they all share a common thread in the goal of achieving a state of unity and a sense of oneness with the universe.
Yoga is not a religious practice (no, your not selling your soul to the devil) nor is it something foreign that you should be fearful of. Yoga is about being connected to your true self and ultimately being a better human.
"Yoga is not about touching your toes. It is about what you learn on the way down." - Jigar Gor
All our classes are intimate, last 60-90 minutes and are performed by qualified instructors.
We also offer group Pilates and meditation classes.
Private classes are available on request.
We believe that feeling beautiful is not a privilege, it is a right.
Adorning your nails is no new trend. Rumor has it that Indian women used henna to dye their nails as far back as 5,000 BC, while over in Babylonia in 4,000 BC, they used solid gold tools to get the perfect mani. And although Cleopatra and Queen Nefertiti are accredited with making red nails popular, you don't have to be rich or famous to don this colour. We make use of natural, locally produced products to scrub away dry skin and massage tired hands and feet. Whether you choose a pop of colour or a natural finish, our manis and pedis are guaranteed to uplift your mood.
Whilst facials are not a requirement for healthy skin, education on what your skin's condition is, how to clean it correctly, and how to apply your products, is essential. Our therapists will guide you on how to dramatically improve your skin's condition by applying solid principles to your skincare regime. We also offer specialised skincare in the form of microneedling (dermarolling), high frequency and galvanic as well as results-driven facial courses.
Individual Lash Extensions
These are semi-permanent lashes, also known as individual eyelash extensions, that get applied to your natural eyelashes with an eye-safe adhesive. They last up to 6 weeks provided you follow the pre- and post-care instructions.
Massages have long been viewed as a luxury treatment but studies found that the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. Body wraps can tighten, tone, and firm any area of the body while a body scrub renews your skin and enhances blood flow - essential for maintaining healthy skin.
The ancient art of "laying on of hands" in order to heal. It is the use of touch to convey warmth, serenity, love, caring, and healing, through the channeling of energy to enhance a person’s own life force.
