Amara Carvajal has been dedicated to the world of yoga and personal growth in a deeper way since 2009, although she has always been linked to the techniques of interception and personal enquiry since childhood. She has also been greatly influenced by mountain life, mountaineering and climbing as well as her travels around the world and contact with indigenous cultures. After many years of working in mountain huts, in the world of art and in scientific research, Amara decided to take the step towards teaching yoga as a way of accompanying others through her own process.
Amara has learned (and continues to learn) from internationally recognised teachers. She has been able to learn and practice with different teachers from different schools and lineages, being especially influenced by the lineage of Krishnamacharya, Desikachar and Sri Aurobindo.
Nowadays she offers an integrated method adapted to each of her students in which she fuses modern yoga incorporating functional mobility techniques with traditional yoga. In her classes one can perceive a strong influence of ashtanga, hatha-vinyasa or integral yoga, incorporating especially traditional mantra yoga and dreaming techniques. Her asana sessions are both vigorous-energizing and peaceful-calming. Amara offers regular workshops, trainings, individualized teacher training classes and yoga retreats on a yearly basis. She is also the founder of the AmaraYoga ® training school and the Sadhana YogaShala space in Navarra.

Meditative walks and hikes are esencial practices in our retreats. They are very simple and accesible for everyone. They help us to understand, through experience, our deep connection with nature.
It makes us notice in each step and in each breath, that the energy that exist inside us it is just the same as the 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.
Two days will be 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.
Everyday there will be guided meditation sessions, in the morning and some nights before going to sleep. The best way to start and finish the day.
We practice simple techniques that are easy to carry on at home. We use universal elements to all of us as concentration objects, such as the breath, the body sensations, sounds, etc.
A moment of silence to connect with nature, with yourself and with the group. Sharing a bowl of “living tea” we deepen all the richness that dwells in “the way of tea” (Cha Dao).
We give ourselves the opportunity to make from something ordinary something extraordinary and full of meaning.
In Sanskrit, Sat means truth and Sang means group or community.
Satsang is a gathering to share our concerns, questions, and 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 any 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.
