Program

In this retreat, Five Elements will offer you a challenging but nurturing environment where you can focus on your personal growth, helping you to unwind and reconnect with your inner resources, surrounded by the healing power of nature.

Aside from the healthy meals and cozy accommodation, you will experience daily energizing yoga sessions, insightful morning Five Elements lectures, meditation time, Five Elements afternoon adventures (kayaking, windsurfing, hiking, or biking), and plenty of leisure time to spend on the various beaches and secluded coves.

With the optional outdoor yoga classes, this program can be all outdoor with taking care for a safe distance.

All of the activities in the retreat, including windsurfing and kayaking, are very easy to do. Five Elements Retreats will provide the equipment for beginners and you will be led by highly experienced instructors. Everyone can join, no matter previous experience but an average physical condition is necessary.

Five Elements Hatha yoga style

Each day of the retreat will be dedicated to one of the great five elements (water, earth, fire, air, and spirit). This retreat benefits all levels of practitioners regardless of where you are in your yoga journey.

Five Elements Hatha yoga style is a variation of Hatha yoga, focusing on each of the five elements. This style is excellent for beginners and provides an interesting approach for the experienced yogi.

The Five Elements concept is the oldest knowledge in the world, originating as ancient religion in Egypt, India, and Sumeria. Civilizations that would develop esoteric knowledge such as yoga, Tantra, astrology, numerology, Feng Shui, and many others based on these beliefs. Today, many mystics, yogis, saints, and hermits still use this concept to continue on the spiritual path they have chosen.

The Five Elements can shape your life and influence your perception of reality. A balance between elements develops qualities such as peace, power, joy, and harmony. You only need to discover, implement, and balance these elements in your character, as you are made from all of the five elements; the same elements as nature, Mother Nature can be your greatest teacher.

In the retreat, you will not only learn about the Five Elements but discover which is your strongest and which ones may need attention and learn the method of bringing balance to the elements.

This retreat program will begin on Sunday with the evening gathering at sunset time.
