Primavera

Primavera - Fully Booked

All Level ✺ 16-22 April 2023 ✺ In Sabina, Rieti, Italy

Frühling ist die Zeit der Entfaltung, des Neustarts und des Wiederkehrens von Licht und Energie. Es ist eine besondere Zeit um sich neu auszurichten und neue Kraft zu schöpfen.

Gemeinsam werden wir in dieser Woche diesen neuen Schwung willkommen heißen, losgelöst von den alltäglichen Herausforderungen. Umgeben von schönster Natur können wir diesen wiederkehrenden Prozess der Erneuerung erleben.

Mit Leichtigkeit und Spaß widmen wir uns der Magie der Jivamukti Yogapraxis. Zwischen den Yogaklassen gibt es viel Zeit, die Du für Dich alleine oder aufgehoben in der Gruppe verbringen kannst.  Dich erwartet eine Woche gefüllt mit besonderen Momenten und tiefer Verbundenheit. Yoga bedeutet Einheit. Verbindung. Die Praxis hilft uns dabei, mit uns selbst und mit der Natur in Kontakt zu treten. Ich freue mich mit Dir diese Beziehungen zu vertiefen und den Frühling willkommen zu heißen. Italien ist dann genau der richtige Ort dafür.

Morgens starten wir mit Meditation und Pranayama, gefolgt von einer dynamischen Jivamukti Yogaklasse. In diesen Klassen werden wir Asana üben, chanten, in die yogische Philosophie eintauchen und bei guter Musik sehr viel Spaß haben.

Am Nachmittag wird es in der Regel etwas ruhiger. Asana-fokussierte Workshops, Chanting und Restorative Yoga wechseln sich ab.

An einigen Abenden treffen wir uns zum Satsang:  zum Austausch oder einfach zum Zusammensein.

Philippa Heyden (Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher)

Anfang 2015 absolvierte Philippa das Teacher Training in Radhanath Swamis magischem Govardhan Eco Village in Indien mit ihren Lehrern Sharon Gannon, David Life, Lady Ruth und Jules Febre unter ihrem Mentor Yogeswari.

Was sie am Jivamukti Yoga begeistert, ist die Kombination aus intensiver Asana-Praxis, Meditation, Gesang, verschiedenen Musikstilen, Pranayama, Bewusstheit und Wahrnehmung der direkten und indirekten Umwelt.

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

Fully Booked Slow April All Level English Yin Restorative La Viñuela, Spain Hatha Chrissie Chung Nidra

Restoring Rhythms

Restoring Rhythms - Fully Booked

All Level ✺ 8-14 April ✺ La Viñuela, Andalusia, Spain

Yoga & Ayurveda place great importance on our understanding of the connection/ union between that which is taking place inside of us, and that which takes place outside of us. From the rhythms & polarities of day and night, to the changes of the seasons, to our sleep/ wake cycles and much, much more.How is it that we may learn to live in greater harmony and balance, by coming to both observe, and then better understand, the cycles within and without?

This retreat is an opportunity to dive a little deeper into the wisdom bodies of Yoga & Ayurveda, bringing together these two sister sciences by way of empowering your understanding of practice, and most especially, your experience of Self and life. Together we’ll explore traditional source wisdom, alongside the practices that help you to breathe life into that wisdom, in a way that feels both meaningful and effective for you.

Mornings will consist of a complete practice (asana, pranayama and meditation) weaving yogic philosophy/ understanding through the fabric of your experience. The afternoons will alternate between workshops, as an opportunity to further unpack some of Yoga & Ayurveda’s essential teachings; and, or restorative practices that help to balance and regulate the nervous system, inviting deep rest into the cells of the body, and marking that all important transition from the activity of the day, into the restful nurturance of night.

Journalling and self enquiry will play a large role in helping to spark deeper change, growth and transformation, as you come back step-by-step to a way of being that feels more nourishing and true to you. Experience some of the tools/ means that will support you in building the emotional, mental and physical resilience to meet with the totality of your life ~ in all of its sweetness, and all of its challenge, and every aspect of its unknowing

Chrissie Chung

Chrissie Chung is a student and teacher of the Himalayan Tradition. She has been studying, practicing and sharing Yoga extensively for the last 8 years.

Her heart is firmly rooted in sharing the far-reaching potential of practice, using its various tools as a means to serve the individual in finding their own unique way to rediscover their truest essence.

She offers the richness of Traditional Tantric Hatha Yoga, inviting you to embrace your practice as a spiritual science. Move with purpose, breathe with wisdom and begin the journey of turning your attention in, returning to a state of Being that is inherently whole.

Expect deep practices intertwined with philosophy, intelligent use of the breath, self study, contemplation & meditation.

Intermediate Few Spots Left German Jivamukti May Yin Casa Erica, Spain Very dynamic Sheila Ilzhöfer

Evolve

Evolve

Intermediate ✺ 18- 24 May 2023 ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

Die körperliche Asanapraxis ist eine Form, an unseren Beziehungen zu arbeiten. Sie ist wie ein Spiegel, der uns zeigt, wo wir noch blinde Flecken haben und was unsere Vorlieben und Abneigungen sind. Wir begegnen uns selbst auf der Matte mit all unseren Vorgeschichten und Glaubenssätzen. Wenn wir bereit sind, uns wirklich damit auseinanderzusetzen, hat die Asanapraxis das Potenzial, uns tiefgreifend zu verändern.

Bei diesem Jivamukti Yoga Retreat lernst du die energetische und anatomische Ausrichtung von verschiedenen Asanas verstehen und wie diese mit Atem, Blick (drishti) und Energieverschlüssen (bandha) einen Flow ergeben. Das gibt dir die Möglichkeit, deine Yogapraxis zu vertiefen und dich spielerisch auch an fortgeschrittene Asanas zu wagen.

Doch Asana ist nur ein Aspekt auf dem Yogaweg. Dahinter steckt eine unglaublich reiche Philosophie. Zum achtgliedrigen Pfad des Yoga nach Patanjali gehört unser Umgang mit anderen (yama), der Umgang mit uns selbst (niyama), Atemübungen (pranayama), Rückzug der Sinne und Reflexion (pratyahara), Konzentration (dharana), Meditation (dhyana) und schließlich der Zustand von Befreiung (samadhi). Mithilfe intensiver Pranayama-Sessions, angeleiteten Meditationen, gemeinsamen Chanting sowie Raum zur Selbstreflexion werden wir all diese Teile erleben und erfahren.

Morgens starten wir in Stille mit Meditation, Pranayama und einer dynamischen, intensiven Asanapraxis nach der Jivamukti Methode. Nachmittags erwarten dich Workshops und Asana-Labs, um die eigene Asanapraxis zu vertiefen. Beruhigende Pranayama-Sessions und Yin Yoga Einheite sorgen für den nötigen Ausgleich und die Abende verbringen wir in Gemeinschaft (Satsang), um zu Chancen, Erfahrungen und Ideen zu teilen, um Fragen zu stellen oder einfach das Zusammensein zu genießen. 

Dieses Retreat richtet sich an alle, die bereits eine regelmäßige Yogapraxis haben.

Sheila Ilzhöfer

Sheila ist ausgebildete Jivamukti Yoga, Power Vinyasa und Yin Yoga Lehrerin, hat zahlreichen Aus- und Weiterbildungen absolviert und an internationalen Workshops teilgenommen. Sie gibt in ihren Stunden das weiter, was sie in ihrer eigenen Yogapraxis lernt und erlebt.

Sheila versteht Yoga nicht als rein körperliche Praxis, sondern als ein holistisches Werkzeug, das es uns ermöglicht, unser Innerstes mit radikaler Ehrlichkeit zu erforschen. Sie ist fest davon überzeugt, dass wir Menschen nie falsch oder kaputt, sondern wir stets vollkommen sind. Die yogischen Praktiken helfen uns dabei, uns daran zu erinnern.

Für Sheila ist die Yogapraxis ein Privileg, die uns nicht nur mehr Mitgefühl uns selbst gegenüber, sondern allen Lebewesen gegenüber schenken soll. Sie erinnert uns daran, dass wir nie abgeschnitten von anderen existieren, sondern immer in Verbindung miteinander stehen.

Sheila unterrichtet herausfordernde, dynamische Jivamukti Yoga Klassen voller Leichtigkeit, stets unterlegt mit einem ausgewählten Soundtrack. Ergänzt wird die Asanapraxis mit Meditationen, Pranayama (Atemübungen) und Chanting.

Sheila lebt in Berlin und unterrichtet Yogaklassen sowie Workshops in ganz Deutschland und Europa.

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

Divine Feminine

Divine Feminine

All Level ✺ 15-21 January 2023 ✺ La Viñuela, Andalusia, Spain

Every day, we walk in the depths of a deeply masculine world, but endless possibilities are waiting for us when we step into the sacred circle of sisterhood. 

In this women-only retreat, we will learn from, connect with, and co-create alongside one another. We will explore many avenues of self-expression through daily yoga and meditation, as well as movement, breath, journaling, and embodiment practices. We will tap a toe into the magic of living alongside our natural, feminine rhythm, and we will support one another as equals as we move into our shadows to shine new light on the beauty that is flowing within us all.  

Throughout our retreat, we will form a circle of sisterhood where we can hold space for one another and breathe in the healing of our shared experiences. Through the enchantment of self-expression, we will find a deeper connection to ourselves and to one another, leaving our week together to return home with a more profound understanding of the magic pulsing within all of us.

An important note: This retreat is open to all bodies walking in the expression of femininity. If you identify in another way and still wish to attend, we are so open to hearing from you and we can either discuss whether this event will support you, or we can direct you towards other practitioners who hold the best possible space for you.

Lauren Simonis

Hello beautiful humans! I’m Lauren and I’ve been a yoga teacher for five years, a facilitator for twenty, and a lover of all-female spaces my entire life. I believe there is magic when women come together and share their experiences. There is a sacred divinity that lives in each of us just waiting to be brought to the surface, and sometimes, a room filled with other voices calling out, “Yes, sister!” is exactly what we need to leave feeling a deeper sense of love and devotion to all of the magic that lives inside of us.

Lauren moved to Portugal from the U.S. in 2016 and that’s where her passion for yoga grew from a hobby, to a habit, to a passion. She first began teaching aerial yoga and then expanded her training to include vinyasa, hatha, yin, and myofascial release when she realised how much joy her students brought her. With these experiences, she found herself immersed more and more in all-female spaces, and in them, she found the healing, love, and support she had been craving all her life. These experiences inspired her to take additional training in creating sacred spaces for women so she could share the magic she found within them.

ceramics workshop


with Danyela @totumaceramics, duration: 3.5 hours

We love the meditating effect working with clay has! Just like in yoga there is no pressure, you can enjoy the process. If you have experience already or not – it is always nice to join the workshop. Maybe it is going to be a new inspiration you take home with you and find a ceramics course back home?!

During this workshop you will learn how to hand-build either a cup or a mug (or whatever you like) with a technique called Neriage, in which colored clays are used to create a unique marble effect on each piece.
This workshop is suitable for everyone, as no prior experience is necessary.
All materials are included, and you will be able to take your piece home.

If you want to explore your creativity through your hands this is a great opportunity!

all yoga equipment is available at our retreat location, as well as towels & bed linen. we’ll let you know what’s good to bring, a few days before your retreat.
