For October and April retreats, you will be accommodated at Portavella, a beautiful retreat center with a stunning activity room near Girona. You will be provided a private room based on two to three sharing with en-suite bathroom.
For the rest of the dates, you will be accommodated at the Masia called Can Mas, one hour north of Barcelona on the train to Pineda del Mar.
There is a full program that you can attend, such as yoga classes, hiking, meditation, biodanza, dancing, sun gazing, and nutrition workshops.
This is a guided meditation using an ancient Toltecan technique of gazing at the sun during the safe times of sunrise and sunset. It is a beautiful, gentle and loving meditation on being in the present moment, bringing our sense of awareness to our breath and body.
You will practice Kundalini, Hatha and Yin yoga whilst at the retreat. We start the day with a kundalini sadhana, which includes pranayama and meditation, working the body on a more energetical level. Each day there will then be a second yoga class of Hatha or Yin yoga. In hatha yoga, the asanas will focus on detoxing the body´s organs, aiding in the fasting process, as well as giving you an opportunity to listen and connect with your body. We will look at different breathing and pranayama techniques. Yin yoga will be a more relaxing and meditative class, holding the asanas for longer periods of time working the body at a deep tissue level, increasing circulation and flexibility. All classes will be at all levels.
During the retreat, there will be classes with a nutritionist and naturopath. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about nutrition, as much about the process during the fast as well as your normal dietary routine. Get some great tips for making some simple changes into your diet for increased energy and wellness.
In the body, there is an emotional memory that often is blocked. In the retreat we use movement and music to unlock some of these memories to feel lighter, less restrained and freer. We use techniques both in group and solo work to go deeper into this experience, connect with others and parts of ourselves forgotten or hidden.
Throughout the retreat, you will experience different guided meditations from vipassana, sungazing, and mindfulness. Techniques of concentration and breathing from ancient cultures are incorporated to create a space between our thoughts; with simple practices, we can incorporate these empty spaces of everyday life and give our rushing minds pause for a moment.
The house is surrounded by beautiful trails and paths leading through woodland, forests, and mountains, and each day we will go on a hike. Contact with nature is also part of the nutritional side of self-care; walking and breathing give us a high level of inner nutrition. The sunset requires a climb and each evening we will do this hike and practice sungazing at the top with a stunning view of the valley below.
