During this retreat, yoga and mindful walking will become a great way to practice mindfulness meditation and experience Extremadura's pristine beauty. You will get guided instruction on how to keep your focus and remain present and alert to fully enjoy your experience. If you find sitting meditation challenging, walking is a great option for you. You will start the day with a soothing and invigorating yoga class. After lunch, you'll get some free time to relax and explore. The afternoon class alternates every other day between mindful guided walking and sitting meditations. After supper we enjoy a nightcap in Trujillo's town square, reputedly Spain's most theatrical, then retire at your leisure.
This retreat will take place in Trujillo, Extremadura in Spain. The city of Trujillo in central Extremadura houses a population of only 9,800 inhabitants, yet its size belies its cultural and historic heritage. Set on a high granite tor in wild, mountain-ringed country, the city sits in splendid isolation. Its 9th-century Moorish castle gives way to a labyrinth of shady streets and open squares housing the rich architectural heritage of nobility, merchants, and conquistadors, built for pleasure and good living as much as ostentation of power during Trujillo's long and colorful history. Today it's a place of beauty and tranquility. A place for relaxation and healing. Whether your preference is for activity or letting go and relaxing, for town or country, Trujillo has it all.
