Celebrate this moment with us. In of rest and retreat, in which we honor the wisdom that Mother Nature offers us. During winter, she keeps all her knowledge and potential in her seeds.

“A new year is a blank book with 365 sheets in which we have full freedom to decide what to write in each of them.” Start your first pages in an environment different from what we might be used to culturally.

We will have yoga classes, movement session, sound journey session, meditative walks and, of course we will enjoy an amazing New Year’s Celebration!

ACTIVITIES DESCRIPTION:

Yoga classes are for all levels of practice. The sessions combine Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga principles, as well as movement and mobility exercises.

The morning sessions are usually are more dynamic and the evening ones are more gentle, after the long meditative hikes.

Yoga classes are progressive, variations for different levels of practice and particular limitations are always offered.

Meditative walks and hikes are essential practices in our retreats. They are very simple and accessible for everyone. The meditative walks and hikes help us to understand, through experience, our deep connection with nature.
It makes us notice in each step and in each breath, that the movement and energy that exist inside us it is just the same as the movement and energy that exists out there. Nature is our greatest teacher, silence and deep listening helps us enrich the experience She offers.

There will be a daily 90 minute meditative walk in nature, opening the senses and developing mindfulness.

One day will be entirely dedicated to meditative hiking, starting just after breakfast and coming back for a gentle yoga session. It is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the wonders of the the Ordesa National Park or surrounding areas.

SNOWSHOEING

It may be possible to have the long excursion with snowshoes, in case we have the right snow conditions.

*You can bring your snowshoes, or you can also rent them here for 15 euros.

A beautiful 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. The main objectives of this practice are to listen to the world around us with our skin and finally, to understand the body as a holistic entity made up of many different yet interdependent parts.

Our subtle body is pure vibration.  Upon entering a sound journey is an invitation to a much deeper relaxation than usual in a physically, mentally and emotionally.  It is an opportunity to harmonize completely. We bath ourselves in harmonic sounds and frequencies that will penetrate every cell of our being.

Different instruments such are used, such as monochord, Tibetan bowls, quartz bowls, rain sticks, gong, sansula, dijeridu and other ancestral instruments, as well as the voice in harmonic chanting.

It is an experience that leads us to a state of clarity: a deep meditation.

 

The tea ceremony is a collective meditation. A moment of silence to connect with nature, with yourself and with the group. It is a celebration the beauty and depth that we can find in simplicity. Sharing a bowl of tea we enter into de richness of the ancestral practice of Cha Dao.

In Sanskrit, Sat means truth and Sang means group or community.

Satsang is a gathering to share our concerns, questions, doubts our our deepest insights. It is also a time to meditate together, contemplate nature and sing meditative songs or mantras.

Karma Yoga is Yoga in action = finding skillfulness and integration in action.

We bring the principles of Yoga in everything we do. We invite you to practice Karma Yoga by helping us with simple tasks of the house as fetching water from the fountain, chopping vegetables, drying dishes, etc.

Everyday from the end of the evening Satsang up until before lunch the following morning, we cultivate joyful silence in the house. This deep silence is very healing for calming the mind and being in peace with ourselves, allowing us to deeply listen to ourselves. We will have a restful sleep and the next day we will enjoy the silence with mental clarity during our asana practice, meditation and other activities. Breakfast will be taken mindfully and in silence. By participating in this period of joyful silence we will be supporting each other in our practice.

Throughout the afternoon we will enjoy conscious speaking and deep listening, which will allow us to get to know each other in a more authentic way.
