Bell tents

The beautifully furnished bell tents are simple yet sumptuous. With comfy beds and crisp, fresh linen, it’ll be a luxury glamping experience you’ll never forget! As you lay your head down, let the sweet scent of the nearby lemon and orange groves carry you off to sleep as you doze under the glorious, star-filled sky. A truly blissful way to end your day.

​Rest and relaxation

You’ll be spoiled for choice for ways to rest and relax. You could take a dip in the refreshing swimming pool, or lounge lazily in the hammock area while taking in the beautiful views.

Why not pull up a sun lounger in the shaded terrace, and enjoy one of the many books or board games? And at the end of your day, after an invigorating workshop, you can head past the almond trees to our lovely wooden meditation cabin, with breathtaking views over the valley.

Bathrooms and showering

As a totally off-grid yoga retreat, we have lovely, solar-powered showers, or if you prefer, an amazing outdoor shower block, so you can literally shower under the stars!

Electricity and internet

Rustic Retreats provides their guests with an Internet connection and the bell tents come ready with solar electricity.

Program

Style of yoga to be taught

​Classical Hatha yoga works both with the physical and subtle bodies to take you deeper within, preparing you for meditation and more subtle levels of awareness.

You will work a lot with individual asanas (poses) to ensure good alignment, Pranayama (breath / life force activation), Mudras (sacred gestures), and some mantra (healing sound currents) and Bhandas (energy locks). Some gentle flow sequences will be occasionally included, along with sound, imagery, guided meditations, and deep relaxations.

Sample daily timetable for yoga retreat

  • 07:30 Pranayama or morning meditation
  • 08:00 Morning yoga practice
  • 09:30 - 10:15 Breakfast buffet
  • 11:00 Workshop (practical / theoretical) or free time
  • 13:00 Lunch

Your Rustic Retreats journey

"Yoga" means union, and your heart is your sacred center where you are balanced between your roots (desires and instincts) and your wings (your expansive vision / ideals).

In this retreat, you're going to explore how it is to balance the solitude you have so recently experienced. You will use the ancient potent tools of yoga to cultivate a deeper awareness of your body. Creative exercises and experiential movement will add some color, creativity, and spice. This retreat is about getting to know yourself and accepting every shade of who you are = self-love.

You will work with your roots and your wings bringing both energies to meet and seek a pathway through the heart enabling you to open it fully again in everyday life.

Your workshop program

1. Chakra awareness journey with sound and movement​

Whether you are familiar with or new to working with your chakras, this workshop will introduce and allow experiencing them in new ways. It will also be a wonderful introduction to the power of sound and vibration and the ways it can affect and release your body and clear your mind.

You work with Aum, Chakra seed sounds, intuitive sound, and breath. Many of you are afraid of making sound, but this will be developed naturally, with fun, and will help you get deeper into your body and shift inhibitions.

2. Power of gratitude​

Gratitude can shift a difficult situation into a wonderful opportunity and train your minds to be more contented with the present moments. You will explore what gratitude means to all of you; how it can make you happier and healthier; take a journey of gratitude through the body, and make your own gratitude journals to work with during the retreat. It gives you the opportunity for self-reflection and observation and moves you directly into the space of the heart.

3. Flow painting and nature mandalas

Polarities make the wheel of life. As the theme for this day is on exploring and balancing these seemingly opposite energies to move into harmony and balance, there is no better place and teacher to guide you than nature herself. Let nature be unleashed and freedom of the child within you see nature afresh, gather treasures, and create your own wheel of life or mandalas.

4. Connect to your Dharma

​What does living a passionate life mean to you? And, are you living your wildest dreams? What does your heart secretly yearn for? Do you dare to believe you could live them? This is wonderful and fun, activating and even tearfully moving and revealing exercise. In the season of summer, which governs this day's theme, let the full summer sunshine lights on your heart's path.

The teachings of yoga say that you each have your own unique Dharma or purpose for being here, something that you wish to learn or fulfill, whether seemingly small or wide-reaching. This workshop will bring you closer to yours and help you to make the decisions in your life to move in their direction. When you know what they are, you can achieve them.

Sacred closing circle

You will celebrate with a sacred closing circle at the end of the week. This will be our time to reflect and feel fully reconnected, healed, nourished, and nurtured from your journey of deep self-discovery.

With an open heart, you find gratitude for all the blessings you have in the world. From this place of gratitude, you find the compassion to share both to oneself and to others. With a musical twist, you will seal your experience with a chant that will remain a vibration in your heart forever.​
