SPAIN | Yoga Holiday Retreat

11-17 June 2022

This retreat is open to all practitioners of all styles and all levels. The practices are accessible, inclusive and require a capacity for presence, attentiveness and desire/ability to travel deep into the body, to play with breath and glyphs, to stay aware and awake. Asana performance is not the driving force in this work.  The emphasis this year is on mobilising the power in the belly to quieten the fluctuations of the mind. Refined kriya and delicate mudra practices open the pathways through the different layers of our human reality towards a place of harmony and balance so that we may take skilful, creative and fully embodied action.  A gift in these complex and unstable times.

SILENT RETREATS

We offer two Silent Retreats every year, one in the Winter and another in the later Summer. Arrival is at 3 pm on Friday, departure at 2pm on Sunday.

Shaucha

Shaucha purification is a winter retreat that pauses the perennial question ‘Who am I?’ From the dawn of time the path to our human soul has been a long pilgrimage into the depths of our being. At times challenging, difficult, painful even, at other times wondrous, full of marvel and enchantement and occasionally just simple, tranquil, evident.

In all traditions, to undertake that journey back home requires a purification of body and mind, a deconstruction of the ego self so that: ‘the Seer can be revealed in its true form” Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras I-3 This Winter retreat incorporates intensive methods from both Yogic and Shamanic lore. Blind-folded practices, advanced pranayama and asana, meditations, shamanic journeying and dreaming tasks.

PRACTICE IS THE HEART OF ALL YOGA

‘There is an archetypal perfect pose, when one slides into it like a hand slides into a glove, the mind has nothing to desire or fear, it runs into silence like a river runs into the ocean’ “La Mystique du Silence’ Dr. Jaques Vigne (translation: Sama Fabian)
