SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM:
The theme of these retreat is to explore the nature and qualities of the five elements in the Yoga practice. Each day will be dedicated to one element, in order to integrate them all and understand their relationship during the last days.
We will start the day with meditation and breathing exercises, to increase our mindfulness and become more present in order to explore who we are and live more fully.
The Asana practice is inspired in dynamic yoga form Godfrey Devereaux and Iyengar yoga.
There will be space to have an optional individual consultation with Carmen where you can find support and inspiration for own yoga practice and work out an individual asana program.
Each afternoon will be dedicated to an activity such as yogic massage and delicious partner stretching, introduction into yogic-ayurvedic practice with the five elements through asanas, pranayama, daily practices, cooking and others. Some space in afternoons will be also free for rest and play, on the beach or in the beautiful surroundings.
In the evenings space for relaxation through mantras, yoga nidra or satsang (sharing circle) will be given.
