Yoga and Movement Retreat in Spain

ViVa was created in order to help those who visit to connect with nature and increase communication between the body and mind. Far from looking for experiences that may seem esoteric or overly sweet, at ViVa, they rely on human naturalness. Unconventional body movements are capable of expanding the mind. Mindfulness meditation will open doors to unknown paths where you will find yourself calm and able to see yourself closely.

Instructions will be offered in English and Spanish.

Program

Friday

14:30-16:00 Arrival

In this time slot, please arrive and settle into your rooms. The group will meet in the outdoor patio for an informal meal and to get to know each other. A photo of your face will be taken (optional), and a group game of reaction speed with a tennis ball will take place.

16:30 - Hiking climb to “Punta de la Laja“

A 2 km uphill hike where we will enjoy a forest path ideal for mountaineering, surrounded by nature. Once at the top, we are met with breathtaking views of Bolonia beach and the southern coastline. At our feet will be the home of local vultures, where we can observe the flight of these birds drawing circles over the landscape.

17:30 - Natural Stretching.

From the top of the mountain illuminated by the golden light of sunset, we will practice a stretching exercise with the help of a bamboo cane that will serve as an assistant in our exercises. *Stress tends to accumulate in the upper area of ​​our body, neck, traps and shoulders. The intention of this exercise is to unblock that tension accumulated over days, even weeks. We will end the exercise with a paired game in which we test our reflexes and elasticity.
