MINDFUL MOVEMENT
Yoga, Dance and Hiking Retreat
with Carme Torrent & Dani Benito

July 2nd to 8th, 2017. 

Life is movement. No matter how small or slow, this constant and continuous vibration is present in every cell that forms part of Nature.

The simple act of breathing generates a visible movement in all of us; however there are many other often supressed internal movements that need to be continuously observed and liberated.

We will work in a unique way combining three distinct disciplines that share the same essence and principles: Yoga, Meditative Dance and Hiking.

Give your body the opportunity to regain its natural balance through conscious and meditative movement surrounded by stunning nature. Practice a dynamic meditation in which we develop our ability to listen in a holistic way. Listening with real sensivity and opening all of our senses and the pores of our skin, paying attention to ourselves, those around us and the environment.
