The Yoga Beat invites you to join them in their intensive yoga retreat held in the wonderful Andalusian hills of Spain. Enjoy relaxing yet focused daily yoga sessions that will fit your yoga needs. While on your leisure time, you can stroll along the beautiful sandy beach and maybe after dinner, join mantra chanting to calm your mind. You will come home not only feeling inspired but also recharged!
You will be staying at Santillan Yoga and Wellness Center. The center is located in the peace of the Spanish countryside and yet it is still conveniently reachable as it is only 20 minutes away from Malaga Airport (AGP). The family atmosphere, the delicacy of service, gardens, small corners, and interior spaces make it an ideal venue for yoga retreats or explore meditation, deepening silence, and stillness space.
All rooms at Santillan have an en-suite bathroom with a bathtub and shower. The superior rooms are equipped with underfloor heating in the bathroom, two wash-hand basins, and hydro massage in the bathtub. There are complementary toiletries, hairdryer, hot and cold air conditioning or fan, kettle, television and DVD player, telephones for internal use, safe deposit box, work desk, and a balcony or patio with sea or garden and mountain views.
During this retreat, you will have three daily yoga classes with Chris Leuenberger and Stella Shakerchi. Experience extensive sessions of Vinyasa yoga, pranayama, Kundalini yoga, Restorative yoga, and celestial communication (mantras with extended mudras) in the evening. The week will follow through the chakras, so the first day will be root chakra and the last day, the crown chakra. Each class during the day will relate to that day's chakra.
In this retreat, you will start your day with 90 minutes Vinyasa class and silent relaxation. After your morning yoga and relaxation session, you will have your breakfast. Around midday, you will have 60 minutes kundalini or dance based class and music relaxation, followed with lunch. In the evening, you will have another 90 minutes evening Vinyasa class with meditation or Nidra yoga. After dinner, there will be 20 minutes of mantras with music and mudras.
Stella found yoga in Bermuda 17 years ago and developed her practice all around the world. After overcoming ovarian cancer, she trained for her first teaching certificates in South India. With a joyful style of teaching backed by her wisdom of nutrition and healing, she is a KYTA member (Kundalini Level 1 teacher) and Yoga Alliance Member (RYT 500), graduated from Tribe Worldwide Yoga School, specializing in pranayama, meditation techniques, Astanga, Vinyasa, and Restorative yoga. Her daily sadhana practice is a blessing.
Chris’s yoga classes are based on the Astanga Vinyasa method. Individual asanas are coordinated with the breath and linked with each other like a dance. This flowing style of yoga can be quite dynamic or more meditative depending on the level of the students and the desired effects of the class. In his classes and workshops, he often includes elements of meditation, pranayama (breathing techniques), as well as sound explorations.
Set in a secluded location, Santillan is an Andalusian paradise, nestled in a Malaga hill overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It is located in the countryside, surrounded by the silence of the mountain and with wonderful sea views.
