7-Daagse Dans, Hike, Meditatie & Yoga Retraite in Vio, Spanje

  • Casa Cuadrau, Calle Única 11, Vió 22375, Spanish Pyrenees, Huesca, Aragon, Spain

Recovering Yoga Retreat Spain

Life is movement. No matter how small or slow, this constant and continuous vibration is present in every cell that forms part of nature. The simple act of breathing generates a visible movement in all of the people, however, there are often many other suppressed internal movements that need to be continuously observed and liberated. You will work in a unique way combining three distinct disciplines that share the same essence and principles; yoga, meditative dance, and hiking.

Give your body the opportunity to regain its natural balance through conscious and meditative movement surrounded by stunning nature. Practice a Dynamic meditation in which you develop your ability to listen to in a holistic way; listening to with real sensitivity and opening all of your senses and the pores of your skin, paying attention to yourself, those around you, and the environment.

Yoga

"The focus of Kashmir Yoga is on the art of coping with life itself, on creating integration in our lives and letting life resonate in the Silence. It does not require us to change or transform our way of life or attitude." - Eric Baret

This form of yoga comes from Tantric non-dualist Kashmir Shaivism according to the teaching of Jean Klein. In this practice, the asanas are special moments in which you will sense the tranquility that lies at the heart of all life. The time between the asana practice is dedicated to meditation allowing you space to familiarize yourself with your body's natural absorption and vibrational state that arises unexpectedly during these moments.

You will explore the body just as it is in each moment, any areas where you feel emptiness, tension, or reaction. Without trying to change, improve, or relax your body, instead, you are allowing the truth of the present moment to be as it is. You are welcoming everything without commentary or judgment and allowing deep listening to become the guiding principle without expecting anything in return.

Dance

Body weather is a whole movement practice which helps you develop mindfulness and cultivate a connection between body-mind-environment. It can also be understood as a dynamic meditation practice in which you will develop your ability to listen to in a holistic way. You will be listening to with real sensitivity and opening all of your senses and the pores of your skin, paying attention to yourself, those around you, and the environment.

The main objectives of this practice are:

  • To re-examine your movement patterns
  • To listen to the world around you with your skin
  • To re-learn how you generate your movements and what those movements generate in turn
  • To understand the body as a holistic entity made up of many different yet interdependent parts

During the retreat, you will carry out a series of improvisation exercises that will allow you to open your body and give it space and tranquility. You will also practice Katsugen Undo, a Japanese technique of body movement that consists of paying attention to the spontaneous movement of your body.

Meditative walk

During the meditative walks, you will connect with your internal nature as well as with your external surroundings, allowing your perception of nature to flow through all your senses, including those you may not even be aware of. Those are perceptions and sensations flowing from inside to outside and vice versa.

Your breath and its modifications, sensations and bodily reactions, the organic movement that the body creates, and the perception of the environment through all of your senses are some of the elements that allow you to re-learn to walk, experiencing the integration of the body, mind, and all life.

Walking in silence, you can find a natural state of calmness and harmony within yourself and with everything around you. In this state, your mind can experience a deep sense of rest. The origin of this practice can be found in the teachings of the Buddha. Nowadays this practice is studied by many dancers, scientists, and meditators.

Activities description

  • The schedule may vary slightly during the week.
  • Yoga asana practice is for all levels
  • Meditative hiking: daily 90-minute meditative walk in nature, opening the senses, and developing mindfulness. Once or twice a week will be entirely dedicated to meditative trekking, starting just after breakfast and coming back for dinner. It is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the wonders of the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park or surrounding areas. Swim in the river, meditate or relax in nature. On those days, because of the excursion, there will be a restorative yoga class in the afternoon.
  • Dance and mindful movement workshops with Carme Torrent exploring your nature in nature
  • Meditation: daily meditation sessions, some will be guided and some not, so you can get into the habit of practicing on your own.
  • Karma yoga: skillfulness in action. Let yoga support you in all you do. At Casa Cuadrau, you are invited to practice Karma yoga by helping in simple tasks in the house like cooking, cleaning, or gardening for 1 hour a day in a mindful, bodiful, and senseful integrated way.
  • Satsang is a gathering circle. It starts with a time for discussion and inquiry, questions and answers based on the direct experience of all participants, and it finishes with a silent meditation.
  • All activities are optional and can be modified to suit the group. To get the most of your stay, you are recommended to participate in all scheduled activities.

Joyful silence

Every day from the end of the evening Satsang until after breakfast the following morning, Casa Cuadrau cultivates a joyful silence in the house. This deep silence is very healing for calming the mind and allows you to be in peace so that you can listen deeply to yourself. You will have a restful sleep and the next day, you will enjoy the silence with mental clarity for your asana practice, meditation, and the nourishing experience of a silent mindful meal, at least once a day. Each person participating in this period of joyful silence will be supporting each other in the practice.

Note: Drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, etc. are not allowed.

You will have 2 longer half day hiking excursions.

  • Daniel Benito

    Co-director of Casa Cuadrau, Dani is a yoga, meditation, and meditative hiking instructor and an ecological builder. From a young age, Dani felt deeply connected to the mountains, and it was in the Pyrenees and the Himalayans where he discovered hiking to be a powerful meditation practice and a way of deepening his connection with nature. Having studied technical architecture in Barcelona, Dani worked in the construction and theater industries, and also as a yoga instructor.

  • Carme Torrent

    Carme studied and worked in architecture. In the dance field, an important part of her experience comes from the Body Weather Laboratory, a dance practice developed by the Japanese dancer Min Tanaka, with whom she has collaborated several times. She has also been developing a way of exploring and listening to the tactile capacity of the body through the regular practice of Seitai (Katsugen-undo and Yuki) and training in shiatsu and movement with Akinobu Kishi (Seiki).
