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

September 2nd to 7th, 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.

ALL SAINTS LONG WEEKEND
Yoga, Meditation & Hiking Retreat “Yoga, the art of living and dying”
with Katya Rios and Daniel Benito

November 1st to 5th, 2017.

Yoga invites us to weave harmony into the whole spectrum of our human experience, including the sometimes harrowing and challenging ‘dark times’ of grief, loss and fearfulness. Though intrinsic to life, and a great teacher, death remains one of the great taboos of contemporary culture. This retreat will give us space to consider death, grief, emptiness and stillness, and understand their importance for growth, renewal and the dynamism of life.

We will explore the practical yoga principles and how they can help us foster harmony through the inevitable cycles of life.

In addition to the daily yoga, meditation and meditative walk practice, we will cultivate a connection between body-mind-environment, through movement exploration exercises and dynamic meditation. We will carry out a series of improvisation exercises that will allow us to open our body and give it space, movement and tranquility and stillness (life and death).
