Restoring Rhythms

Restoring Rhythms

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.

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

The Relais, Italy Rowena Johnson All Level Jivamukti English May Very Flowy June

Full Moon, Full Circle

Sorrento

30 May- 5 June 2023, The Relais, Sorrento, Italy

Like the moon as observed from earth, we experience our life in cycles. We begin something new, we expand within this new field of awareness, reach poornam – fullness, and then we begin a new cycle.
Each time we begin anew, we hopefully take with us some of what we have already learned from previous cycles. And gradually, the recurring fullness that we experience at the end of each cycle, is recognised as our true nature. Because just like the moon, we have alway been full, all that was required to see this was the light of consciousness – the full radiance of the sun shining on the moon, to be able to witness that consciousness.
During this retreat we will explore the way yoga practices awaken us to our full consciousness. And most importantly, how to harness this awareness in all of our relationships.
Each morning will start with chanting, meditation & pranayama, followed by a deep & purposeful asana practice. The afternoons will alternate between workshops and satsangs, to explore and discuss the physical, physiological and philosophical aspects of practice in more detail.

The Journey Home

8-14 April & 14-20 April 2023
La Viñuela, Andalusia, Spain

One of Yoga’s greatest promises is to move us towards an experience of life that is infused with lasting fulfilment, ultimate freedom and a joy that is untouched by external circumstance. We taste the essence of that place by coming to understand the nature of our mind, its tendencies, and how we may best use its potential in service to our growth.

This retreat is an opportunity to dive a litter deeper, in an embodied way, where the teachings can begin to reveal themselves to you, through the direct experience of your own practice. Together we’ll explore traditional source wisdom, alongside the practices that help breathe life into all of it in a way that feels meaningful to you.

Mornings will comprise of a complete practice (asana, pranayama & meditation) that weave Yogic philosophy/ understanding into the fabric of the experience. The afternoons will alternate between restorative practices that help us to balance & regulate the nervous system, inviting deep rest into the cells of the body (Yoga Nidra, Meditation etc) and, or workshops that provide an opportunity to further unpack Yoga’s essential teachings.

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

Wild Women

Wild Women

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.
