Rustic Retreats' accommodation comes in the form of beautiful yet simple well-equipped bell tents, with beds and electricity.

Bell tents

Their 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 their refreshing swimming pool, or lounge lazily in the hammock area while taking in the beautiful views. Why not pull up a sun lounger in their shaded terrace, and enjoy one of their many books or board games? And at the end of your day, after an invigorating workshop, you can head past the almond trees to their lovely wooden meditation cabin, with breathtaking views over the valley.

Bathrooms and showering

As a totally off-grid yoga retreat, they 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

They provide their guests with an internet connection, and the bell tents come ready with solar electricity.

Program

Style of Yoga to be taught

The style of teaching will be mostly dynamic, creative, and energetic. A good balance between Yin (passive) and Yang (active) practice and always fun! They believe that diversity in the practice makes you become aware of possibilities and will help find your way in your personal practice.

The morning Vinyasa flow classes will be dynamic and active. Recharge and energize the body. Creating some heat and working on your inner power and strength. Body and mind will work together by connecting movement to the breath. The Vinyasa classes are creative and will have a different theme every day.

The afternoon classes will be more restorative. Yin Yoga inspired; holding poses for a longer period to stretch and relax the deeper tissues. Still working with the breath to make sure the body and mind can fully relax and unwind. In these afternoon classes we often use music for a full magical experience. These classes are for all levels. We will provide adjustments and modifications to suit individual needs.

Your Rustic Retreats journey

This week will offer you a journey to the heart. Letting go of the stresses of your daily life and let in new experiences. Creating space and becoming more aware of your body and becoming stronger in your yoga practice.

You will wake up every morning to the sound of the birds. Enjoy a cup of tea with a freshly picked lemon from Rustic Retreats' beautiful lemon trees. Start pranayama/meditation practice followed by a dynamic Vinyasa flow class to wake up your whole body and connect movement to the breath. The afternoon workshops will be creative and fun and your afternoon practice will be the perfect way to end the day all relaxed and restored.

During this week you will create a yoga practice that you can integrate into your own everyday life. Start to listen to your body and connect with the mind, leaving Bagend all renewed and inspired.

Your workshop program

Workshop 1: Grounding with nature

Grounding is one of the most ancient healing forms of energy. Grounding or Earthing is the ability of the body to simply connect with the earth.

Ancient cultures and shamans knew the importance of grounding. These days we have a hard way connecting to the earth due to continuous insulation from the shoes we wear, the beds we sleep in, the cars we drive and, due to electronic pollution that make us hold tension and stress in the body.

Grounding keeps your cells dancing freely in the body, allowing the energy drawn from earth to flow easily in the body inducing deep sleep, releasing stress, and allowing the body to feel vibrant and energized. Using the beauty of Bagend’s nature for this workshop, you will leave this workshop feeling grounded and connected to mother nature.

Workshop 2: Mudra Magic

A mudra is a symbolic or ritual gesture performed by the hands. It is a spiritual gesture that acts as an “energetic seal of authenticity”. Most mudras are performed with the hands and fingers often in combination with movements of the wrists, elbows, and shoulders; some involve the entire body. In the yoga and spiritual practices of Indian religions and traditions such as Dharma and Taoism, mudras have been used for thousands of years to assist in meditation and/or healing.

Mudras are hand positions that stimulate different parts of the body. Together with breathing they can affect the flow of energy in the body and even one’s mood. The specific hand gestures and positions act as “locks” to guide energy flows and reflexes to the brain. By curling, crossing, stretching, and touching the fingers and hands, you can manipulate the mind-body connection as each area of the hand corresponds to a certain part of the mind or body. In this workshop, you will learn a few Mudra’s to practice in meditations and can be useful in your daily life.

Workshop 3: The Inner child

In this workshop, you will go back to what feels good. You will go back to the feeling you had when you were kids and you had no worries. A time to play. Moving your bodies in a way that’s fun and feels amazing. Not worrying about how it looks or what other people might think of it. There is still a child in all of us and sometimes it just needs to come out.

Workshop 4: Life is better Upside down

There are so many benefits of bringing the head below the heart. Inversions can stimulate the nervous system, bring more oxygen and blood flow to the brain, boost energy levels and metabolism, engage core muscles, and help with circulation. But most of all it is fun!

This Inversion workshop will give you tips and tricks for your inversion practice. You will look at different variations for advanced students and preparations for beginners who want to have a look at the structure of inversion practice. Working on your Headstand, Tripod headstand, and some handstand fun.

Included excursions

There is the option to visit local markets on Wednesday and Sunday.
