You will start each day with a yoga class on the White Beach. Then, you will meet again in the afternoon for a meditation intensive program. You will go deeper through various spiritual practices and techniques every day, giving you the opportunity to experience a real positive shift in your life.
You will begin the class with a gentle centering, acknowledging the natural power of the surroundings. Afterwards, you will start the practice of breathing and purifying techniques. Once your consciousness is opening, you will enter into a flow of specific series of body postures, starting with sun salutations. The series is based on Vinyasa yoga, gentle flow, or more dynamic yoga depending on the students. You will work on bending, balancing, stretching, and twisting postures, connected with an expanded breathing flow. The last part of the class is a guided meditation, where you are invited to surrender totally and move deeper into relaxation and peace. After the class, it is highly recommended that you jump in the refreshing turquoise water and have fun.
Meditation is learning to go within yourself and dissolve the unconscious veils in order to discover your true essence. It is the art of living a life from your truth, embracing all the levels of existence with more awareness, easiness, and clarity. In yoga, the body postures (asanas) and the breathing techniques (pranayama) areonly bridges to move towards the experience of meditation.
You are born with a first breath, and you will leave this world with a last exhale. Breath is life. Breath is the bridge between the body and the soul, between the visible and the invisible. Used with specific techniques that have been known for ages by shamans and yogis, it is an incredible tool to help you release physical and emotional tensions and expand your consciousness for a deeper understanding of who you are.
