14-20 April 2023, 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.
