 Nature Yoga and Hiking Casa Cuadrau

Yoga, Body Weather and the Meditative Hiking
with Carme Torrent and Daniel Benito

From September 12th to 18th

In this extraordinary retreat we will practice essentially three distinct disciplines, which have different origins, but which all embody the same essence and principles.

Kashmir Yoga comes from Tantric non-dualist Kashmir Shaivism according to the teaching of Jean Klein. In this practice, the asanas are special moments in which we sense the tranquility that lies at the heart of all life. Time between the asana practice is dedicated to meditation allowing us space to familiarise ourselves with our body’s natural absorption and vibrational state that arises unexpectedly during these moments.

We will explore the body just as it is in each moment – any areas where we feel emptiness, tension or reaction. Without trying to change, improve or relax our body, instead allowing the truth of the present moment to be as it is. Welcoming everything without comentary or judgement, and allowing deep listening to become the guiding principle, without expecting anything in return.

Body weather is a whole movement practice which helps us develop mindfulness and cultivate a connection between body-mind-environment. It can also be understood as a dynamic meditation practice 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.

During the retreat, we will carry out a series of improvisation exercises that will allow us to open our body and give it space and tranquility.

During the meditative walks we connect with our internal nature, as well as with our external surroundings, allowing our perception of nature to flow through all our senses, including those we may not even be aware of. Perceptions and sensations flowing from inside to outside and visaversa.

Walking in silence we can find a natural state of calmness and harmony within ourselves and with everything around us. In this state our minds can experience a deep sense of rest.

All activities in Spanish with English translation.

During the retreat there will be offered 2 longer meditative treks in Ordesa National Park and surroundings.

¡For all levels of practice!
