Come and join this retreat for a week of summer cleansing and purifying held within the rocks, waves, and sand of Cadiz, Spain. Focusing on your heart and small intestine, each day will bring the medicine that is needed to shed the out of season weight that you have been carrying, leaving you lighter, more flexible, open, and stronger in the face of all that life brings you.
Rooms are shared between 2 and 4 people. The beds can be sofabeds or fold out into bunk beds depending on accommodation needs. The mattresses and pillows are very comfortable. There are 7 rooms, 2 being attics. Bathrooms are shared with indoor and outdoor facilities.
You will begin each day in the studio with Kundalini yoga, a cleansing breakfast shake, silence, Qigong in the garden and a healthy lunch. There is time to relax by the pool, go to the beach or hike. The afternoon will provide a second optional Vinyasa, Partnering or Restorative yoga class on the beach or on top of the mountain. Evenings with meals and Authentic Movement in the studio by candlelight will end your day. There will be time every afternoon for individual choice.
You are focusing on being rather than doing during this week of retreat. No need to do anything really. The activities in the retreat center will calm your need to do, and the options will be plenty. There is always the beach for those who want to get away from the peaceful center that is called home.
There are incredible rock formations, the eagles overhead, the Atlantic breeze, the labyrinth of hikes that all lead home, the warm wooden floor in the open studio, the comfortable beds, and the delicious food. The highlights are many.
Betis is a small countryside area held within rock formations that provide a grounding energy. Here horses, goats, donkeys, and many others roam free. Just close enough, lies the beach within view.
Helena Chalverus Four Season Yoga Retreats is so lucky to count on the delicious and very knowledgeable cuisine of Paqui. She grows the food in the beautiful garden on site and finds a way to give what you will need while enjoying the taste. You will start each day with an energizing and cleansing liquid shake and will enjoy abundant lunches and dinners with seasonal ingredients.
