Yoga Retreat in Spain

This retreat will focus on reconnecting with your true self. In a yoga practice, we do many things to improve our physical and mental well-being. What we are really after is that sense of peace and freedom we have when we end the session in savasana. It is supposed to give us a sense of separation from the body. This is not your body nor is it your mind. They are vehicles alone. We are supposed to be able to completely separate from the flesh and connect with the spirit. Once we can embrace that concept then we can look further to see the true self. That is the person we are trying to connect with. That is our own little piece of God right inside us. When we are able to make this connection, we realize nothing else matters and we are content and happy with things just as they are.

Food

Yogasanahouse will serve vegan food with some vegetarian options as well. Daily after practice, brunch and dinner will be served during the retreat, so your body will be nourished with lots of freshly prepared food in creative ways, using combinations of various textures and cooking techniques.

The cuisine is based on seasonal fruits and vegetables from the Islands (papayas, pineapples, bananas, avocados, sweet potatoes, etc.). Yogasanahouse includes a lot of nuts and seeds, beans, and legumes (chickpeas, black beans, quinoa, brown and red rice). Additionally, they have their own vegetable garden so fresh greens are close whenever needed (basil, coriander, carrots, spinach, salads, rucola, etc.).

Yogasanahouse bakes their own spelled and wholegrain bread, for the gluten-free versions they offer quinoa chia bread. Some dishes follow the Ayurvedic approach where they replace onion and garlic with fennel, celery, and mustard seeds. Be prepared for colorful smoothies and vegan bowls, homemade granola, Ayurvedic soups and so much more. The food you will taste is cooked with love and passion by your wonderful hosts Vanja and Bojan.

You will taste that positive energy! Each meal is different and each dish is an experience, you will discover amazing combinations and will go home with a collection of recipes to add to your repertoire. There is no alcohol served nor available for purchase on location during the week.
