Feeling good in your skin from the inside out is the essence of vibrant health! Chakra yoga empowers you to seek growth and change and to find purpose and fulfillment in everyday life. During our time together we will make a powerful journey through the chakras, connecting with our inner wisdom and energy and live in alignment with the elements.
The retreat venue where we stay in three hectares of exotic gardens looks out to the soft folds of the wonderful Alpujarra mountains that lie south of the city of Granada and surround this place of peace. The morning yoga class takes place on the roof of the house under a beautiful pergola and the class begins with mantra singing accompanied by harmonium or guitar playing.
Afternoon yoga takes place in the garden under 500-year old olive trees and you can find yourself really sinking into complete stillness and relaxation embraced by the magic of the Alpujarras. All the rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean and are ensuite.
The vegan RAW food is healthy nutritious, delicious, nourishing and exciting, you can feel its restorative qualities and the zing of its colors in the first mouthfuls. On top of all this, you can also enjoy holistic massages, excursions to the waterfalls or a sunset at the beach.
You will be spending 10 days together near the village Orgiva in a beautiful retreat center, situated in the southern hillside of the Sierra Nevada. It has 2,5 hec. of green and fertile land, because of the old watering system created by the Arabs.
Here in the middle of hundred-years-old olive trees, oranges and lemons you'll find cozy and comfortable cottages. There is the main house with 4 bedrooms that offers single and double rooms and there separate self-contained furnished cottages which offer accommodation for 2 to 4 people. They have 2 bedrooms (each with single beds). 2 bathrooms, a living room, kitchen, and a covered porch.
We start the day with a sunrise chakra meditation and continue with a Chakra Yoga class.
After that, there is a delicious Raw Breakfast, mostly a range of delicious juices plus a light dish. Then participants are free to read or exercise in the lovely pool or take walks in the surrounding countryside.
Lunch is taken under a lovely awning and is usually two courses of colorful and inventive raw food. It comes in all kinds of spirals with amazing sauces, pizza, falafel, stuffed vegetables, and delightful salads.
The evening meals are just as delicious and there is often a tantalizing soup to start the evening meal. Attendees feel free to learn about raw foods in the kitchen or workshops with our master raw food chefs.
Afternoon yoga takes place in the garden under 500-year old olive trees. Tara’s yoga is designed to bring about awareness of your body in soft and gentle ways. She can embrace complete beginners and those with more advanced practice in the same class effortlessly.
Each yoga class flows at the speed of the participants and Tara is ever vigilant to any sense of discomfort or confusion. She checks and rechecks in a very sensitive way so that her students feel really empowered at the end of each class. Tara breaks up the week with a trip to waterfalls outside the lovely Pampaneira village, higher up in the mountains and when possible another day out to a unique beach with crystal clear water on the coast.
We dedicate each day to the energy of one of the chakras, starting with the base. You will be gently taken into a deepening practice of yoga postures, meditation, and pranayama. It does not matter if you are a beginner or an advanced student. We have small groups and so there is lots of personal attention. Everyone can get deeper into awareness of there body, breath and being. Even when you have never done any yoga before then this is a great opportunity to get into a non-demanding practice at your own pace.
Indulge in an array of organic, raw and (when desired also) cooked vegan meals. We will show you that eating raw food can be a sensational culinary experience, that delights the palate and leaves you fully satisfied. You don't need much time or special equipment to be able to make delicious recipes, and we are going to show you how!
Healthy menus include delicious and nutritious protein-filled super-foods lovingly prepared. Our chefs will be sharing with you valuable tips and resources that enable you to take your SunFoodYoga experience home with you.
This retreat is much more than a fine combination of yoga and delicious fresh raw food
