Culinary Yoga Retreat

A Yoga & Culinary Retreat //
Practices of Liberation

All Level ✺ 20- 26 July ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

Our signature Yoga & Culinary Retreats are perfect for those interested in plant- based cuisine eager to learn more or simply get inspired.

Jivanmukta means liberated while living, and refers to a person who has gained complete self-knowledge and self-realisation. It’s easy to overlook that the practices of yoga are designed for this purpose, which is why it is so potent when we set aside time to go deeper into our practices.

Perhaps the beginning of living liberated is to recognise that we are not limited to the roles we may have in this lifetime. We not defined by our careers, nor by our possessions, nor by any other external factors. So why should we hold so tightly onto these identities. Whats more, those of us truly aspiring to live liberated must recognise that we are but one cell in the body of all of life. So how can we live in a way that inspires harmony?

During this week we will explore the relationship between asana and intention. Between breath and the awakening of our full consciousness.

Each morning will start with chanting, meditation & pranayama, followed by a deep & purposeful asana practice. The afternoons will be a mixture of workshops designed to explore specific aspects of the practice in more detail.

Rowena Johnson

Rowena is an Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher, and a 200hr & 300hr teacher trainer, who has been practicing yoga since 2008.

With a personal practice of Ashtanga and Jivamukti, Rowena’s classes are strong, purposeful and interspersed with personal insights, spoken word and uplifting music. The alchemy created is inspiring and potent, far beyond the mat.

Whilst based in Berlin, Rowena teaches internationally on yoga teacher trainings, workshops and retreats.

Soulful meals & a heartfelt yoga practice.

Culinary Workshops:
Nourish and Connect

by Caro Gante

The process of cooking and eating food does not have to be a chore–it can be a celebration. With Caro, you will feel the collective energy of cooking as a community, sharing laughter, tips, and the recognition of the land as provider of everything. You’ll eat a variety of food that not only feed your belly but nourish your soul. Disconnect from the utility of consuming and reconnect with the idea that food is more than just food—it is the core of community, of connection, of life.

In the afternoons, we’ll gather around the kitchen for three different vegan workshops:

  • Fermentation: learn the basics and the benefits of this ancient practice
  • Pasta: a hands-on adventure in preparing 3 different pastas and sauces
  • Galette: a sensory affair of both sweet and savory

In the evenings, the dinner table will become our social experience where we will feast on the soulful meals we created, sharing mouth-watering bites and the stories that bind our hearts to one another.

You’ll leave this retreat with a greater ease in the kitchen, technical skills and a recipe e-book, and a deeper connection to your own intuition so you can flow beyond the recipes to create meals that bring you both joy and sustenance.

About Caro Gante

Retreat chef and integrative nutrition health coach Caro will guide you with her creative approach through three workshops in which she’ll share her knowledge and passion for wholesome vegan food. Next to essential ideas of the plant-based cuisine Caro will introduce to you a variety of her favorite recipes which are designed for experienced cooks as well as curious-minded yogis that are new to the world of vegan cooking.

On this retreat, you’ll level up your cooking skills and confidence in the kitchen while also getting a better understanding of holistic health and wellbeing.

Slow Down

Beginner & All Level ✺ 21-27 October 2023 ✺ La Viñuela Andalusia, Spain

A reset for body mind and soul. Let’s slow down with yin yoga, cleansing pranayama (breathwork) practices and gentle somatic flows to attain balance.

Suitable for beginners, but also for all levels.

Janine Behrendt

Janine’s Yoga journey started in 2008 during her late teens after being in show dance for a decade. First for the physical relief but not long after that for the feeling of wholeness, a calm mind and the ability to see things differently. 

In 2013 she completed her first 200 hour Multi- Style Yoga Teacher Training in Dharamsala, India with Trimurti Yoga School (RYS), focused on Yogic anatomy and various different styles like Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin which she personally likes to combine during her own practice and therefore share that experience with her students – “Different bodies, different needs. Its about finding the balance (tula) in everything .”

In 2017, she completed a 300 hour Jivamukti Teacher Training under the guidance of Sharon Gannon (Co-founder of the method) , Yogeswari and Moritz Ulrich. Later in 2017 she started studying and practing the Insight Yoga method as taught by Sarah Powers.

2018 she completed an apprenticeship program with her mentor Miriam Iannone (advanced certified Jivamukti teacher) who has shared with her the art of sequencing and hands on assists.

2020 she completed a Yin Yoga Teacher Training focused on functional anatomy and TCM practice with Sebastien Pucelle and Murielle Burrelier (With-Yin Yoga).

She is currently diving into the therapeutic approach of Iyengar Yoga as well as doing in depth studies into the field of Kundalini Yoga practices, integrating and exploring the benefits of Pranayama ( breathwork). Janine continues to explore the blend of various different styles and likes to share the benefits of a well balanced Yoga practice , integrating Yin and Yang sequences supported by Yogic teachings , gracefully incorporating music to assist those benefits .

about the place

It doesn’t seem possible that InSabina is less than an hour’s drive from the crowded streets of Rome. With lush, abundant grounds of its own, along with a natural spring and a magnificent wooden yoga platform which overlooks the valley below, this is a truly magical place that’s ideal for spiritual practice, slowing down, and plunging oneself into nature. More

Freedom of the Heart

Freedom of the Heart

Intermediate ✺ 13- 19 August ✺ In Sabina, Rieti, Italy

Alignment is internal work, meaning what matters most is that we live from the truth that speaks to us through our spiritual hearts.

When we initially came to the practice the shifts we felt may have been primarily physical, but as we increase the frequency and the dimension of our practice we begin to sense something deeper is calling to us. Yogic practices provide us with tools for introspection. And with this we’re able to recognise our truth, and take action from a place of inner alignment. This does not have to look like a radical external change, you don’t have to leave the modern world and go and live in an ashram, you can live from this place of deep alignment right there where you are – and this is the most radical realisation.  

During this week long retreat we will create space to learn, grow and deepen our connection to practice. So that you can return to your life feeling nourished and refreshed, ready for all that is coming. 

Each morning will start with chanting, meditation & pranayama, followed by a deep & purposeful asana practice. The afternoons will be a mixture of workshops designed to explore specific aspects of the practice in more detail.

Intermediate: This retreat is recommended for those who have a consistent weekly yoga practice.

A Space to Breathe

A Space to breathe

All Level ✺ 9-15 April 2023 ✺ In Sabina, Rieti, Italy

Our capacity to breathe is our capacity to feel.  It is our capacity to live in this world and be sensitive.  Our breath is our most primal connection to life.  It is through our breath that spirit moves through us. 

Join Imogen for a week of diving deep into your respiratory system, exploring each day a different part of your body’s breathing apparatus that will increase your lung capacity.   As we open up these different breath doorways in the body you will, in turn, open the pathways in the body to receive consciousness.  You will begin to understand that what you take in on your breath becomes your tissues.  You will use your breath to create spaces in your energy channels.  These energy channels acting like transformation highways as the breath gives life to a bright, free, awakened you.  

Each morning will include a deep transformational vinyasa practice interwoven with meditations, self-enquiry, myofascial release and different pranayama (breath techniques).  Each evening you can join a lunar practice which will be either yin or restorative (or a combination of the two).  There will also be plenty of down-time to pause, to rest or to enjoy the sights and sounds of the local area.

Imogen North

Imogen hails from London, England and is now based in Harpenden, Hertfordshire.  She trained initially under the expert eye of Katy Appleton and primarily teaches Yin and dynamic Vinyasa flow descended from the Krishnamacharya lineage.  

Imogen enhanced her teaching becoming one of Judith Hanson Lasater’s Relax and Renew® certified restorative yoga teachers and continues to train with her teacher Tiffany Cruikshank towards her Yoga Medicine® Therapeutic Specialist certification. 

Imogen is passionate about helping people make changes in their lives. Her teaching fuses anatomy, physiology and biomechanics with traditional Eastern yogic practices; tantra, ritual, and a deep reverence for nature.  

Imogen’s teaching honours the lineages of all of her teachers and through her teaching she hopes to inspire possibility and encourage self-awareness, awakening your authentic creativity as a yoga practitioner in the modern world. Imogen fiercely believes that yoga is for everyone, that it is a vital tradition that transcends all race and religion, fundamental in all of our lives more so now than ever before.

A Yoga & Culinary Retreat // Warrior Within

All Level ✺ 15- 21 June 2023 ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

Our signature Yoga & Culinary Retreats are perfect for those interested in plant- based cuisine eager to learn more or simply get inspired.

Join us for a week of cultivation. We will be learning how to move from fear to faith.  Cultivating the mind and body of the spiritual warrior, rising above our own limitations, remaining unattached to the outcomes of life circumstances, staying centered and physically, mentally and emotionally.  

Through the week we will explore three pathways; action, devotion and knowledge. You will begin to connect to the strength, stability and power that already lies within you leaving the week standing strong in your true self. As you return to the battlefield we call life you will be empowered to live a life of integrity and truth, embracing your full warrior potential.

This retreat is about tapping into your warrior potential.  Often in life what really holds us back from our own power is our fears.  

Each morning will include a strong vinyasa practice interwoven with yoga mythology, meditations, self-enquiry, and goddess ritual. Each evening you can join a lunar practice which will be either yin or restorative in nature (or a combination of the two). There will also be plenty of down-time to pause, to rest or to enjoy the sights and sounds of the local area.

Culinary Workshops:
Nourish and Connect

by Caro Gante

The process of cooking and eating food does not have to be a chore–it can be a celebration. With Caro, you will feel the collective energy of cooking as a community, sharing laughter, tips, and the recognition of the land as provider of everything. You’ll eat a variety of food that not only feed your belly but nourish your soul. Disconnect from the utility of consuming and reconnect with the idea that food is more than just food—it is the core of community, of connection, of life.

In the afternoons, we’ll gather around the kitchen for three different vegan workshops:

  • Fermentation: learn the basics and the benefits of this ancient practice
  • Pasta: a hands-on adventure in preparing 3 different pastas and sauces
  • Galette: a sensory affair of both sweet and savory

In the evenings, the dinner table will become our social experience where we will feast on the soulful meals we created, sharing mouth-watering bites and the stories that bind our hearts to one another.

You’ll leave this retreat with a greater ease in the kitchen, technical skills and a recipe e-book, and a deeper connection to your own intuition so you can flow beyond the recipes to create meals that bring you both joy and sustenance.

About Caro Gante

Retreat chef and integrative nutrition health coach Caro will guide you with her creative approach through three workshops in which she’ll share her knowledge and passion for wholesome vegan food. Next to essential ideas of the plant-based cuisine Caro will introduce to you a variety of her favorite recipes which are designed for experienced cooks as well as curious-minded yogis that are new to the world of vegan cooking.

On this retreat, you’ll level up your cooking skills and confidence in the kitchen while also getting a better understanding of holistic health and wellbeing.

about the place

Casa Erica is where it all begun and where we host retreats since 2014. It is a home to us, which we love to share. Peacefully located on the coast of Andalusia, between Málaga and Nerja. The beach in walking distance.

What we love most about it are the pastel sunsets, the wild beaches and the laid back Andalusian mentality. Also our dog Alpha and cat Hanuman live here. More
