Most of the furniture has been handmade using wood or other natural materials from the land or locally. All of the rooms have a thick mattress, sheets, duvets, and pillows. Towels and fresh laundry are also provided.

The yoga practice

Inspired by Catarina´s last teacher training in Goa of Mandala and Shamanism, the retreat is going to be on the basic four elements, fire, water, earth, and air. According to the Mayan Calendar, each day represents element, so you will be starting your retreat on a fire day and finishing with water. Your yoga practice will be based on the element of the day, synchronising yourselves with the rhythms of the universe.

Mandala Vinyasa

Mandala Vinyasa routines are based on asanas and structure of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa, warm up, standing, seated, and closing. Instead of using a linear pattern, Mandala Vinyasa integrates the spiral patterns that nature uses, exploring circular movements with the bodies and in space, moving 360 degree around the mat.

Rocket yoga

Rocket is a style of yoga developed by Larry Schultz in San Francisco during the 1980s. The routines are also based on poses of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa primary and intermediate series but breaking them down into moves that are more accessible to beginners. This vibrant routine is called the rocket because, it gets you there faster. The Rocket is designed to wake up the nervous system and feed it the precious prana, it craves while promoting a spirit of change and freedom in the practice.

Yin yoga

An introspective practice and a slow-paced style of yoga where you hold postures for longer periods of time, so that moderate stress is applied to the connective tissue, tendons, fascia, and ligaments, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. Every single pose is held between three to five minutes but is on the rebound counter-postures when the Yin happens and emotions, tension, blocks, tightness, and resistance are released. Yin challenges the mind cultivating stillness and awareness, is a great preparation for meditation and open is for all levels, either you are an experienced yogi, or a beginner.

Based in the Ashtanga Vinyasa, her classes are dynamic, with continuous movement and the routines are structured in a way that allows modifications to push yourself a little further in a safe place. She is qualified as a yoga teacher in December 2015, after completing a 200 hours Ashtanga Vinyasa and Rocket yoga teacher training. Since then, she started teaching but she still keeps up with her teacher trainings.
