About the Yoga_
The Sanskrit word yoga has many meanings, but one of them is ‚to connect‘.
If you ask people: „When are you feeling most happy?“ All the answers have in their own way to do with connection.
The interconnection between body, mind and soul is of a great importance today as we are losing this connection through the speed of modern life.
And how we connect with ourselves has a lot to do with how we connect with our family, colleagues, friends or partner.
And on a different level also with how we connect with the earth, nature and universe.
In this week it’s all about connection, we will practice a strong Vinyasa Flow class every morning and in the late afternoon a calming Yin Yoga session.
One afternoon we will literally connect with each other in front of the ocean to play together some Acro Yoga.
On another afternoon we are going to explore how to give (and receive) a Thai yoga massage.
About the teacher_
MAREILLE completed her 200 hours TT with David Lurey in Brazil in 2012. In addition, she learned the magic of the practice of Yin Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage that she uses as a perfect companion to her yoga practice.
Mareille's classes are a nice blend of Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and Yin. We will learn to respect our boundaries and accept, as we listen to the rhythm of our breath.
Mareille has worked in many different surf camps in Spain and Morocco. But at currently she is mainly in Amsterdam, her hometown, where she teaches. For more information about Mareille please see her website.
Mareille is a very accessible teacher. Her classes are suitable for all levels. The language of instruction will be English, but Mareille also speaks Dutch and a little German.
About the place_
The retreat is taking place in Casa Erica in Andalucia - the beautiful south of Spain. A walk around Casa Erica can be adventurous. You can find an abandoned pool, an old arabic tower and all of a sudden an agitated herd of sheep walks by...
Between the brunch and the afternoon yoga session there is free time. If it is getting too hot, you can freshen up in our pool or 800m down the hill at the beach. Maybe you feel like getting a massage on our beautiful terrace or order a Smoothie or a Snack.
On Wednesday you have all day to explore one of the surrounding Andalusian cities, such as Granada, Málaga, the beautiful beach town Nerja or the popular white village Frigiliana. More Impressions about WHAT TO DO here.
