Vinyasa Flow In Sabina, Italy All Level Gentle Fleur van Hille Yin Restorative Nidra

Abundant Heart

Abundant Heart

All Level ✺ 6- 12 August ✺ In Sabina, Rieti, Italy

Life can be hectic, keeping us on a hamster wheel of thoughts and worries. On this retreat, you’re invited to break free from this state of being by opening and listening to the wisdom of your heart – out of your head, into your heart.

Each day, we’ll flow through our yoga practice, carried by inspiring musical vibrations, and sing mantras that fill us with joy. We’ll use the breath to soothe our nerves and take deep rest with Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra, creating the stillness we need to see ourselves as we really are. And we’ll use the stories and myths behind the asanas as a playful way of understanding life’s universal themes – and looking at our own situations with a fresh perspective.

This shared journey will remind you that you are part of a bigger whole and connect you to the abundant joy that comes with this experience. You’ll learn to let sadness and pain flow through you, gently widening your compassion towards yourself and others. Above all, you will discover that freedom from worry doesn’t come from controlling your outer world, but from trusting yourself in this very moment.

Fleur van Hille 

People often describe me as a warm and sunny person with an intuitive approach to teaching yoga. I like hearing this description because it shows that I’ve made a real connection with my students. And if there’s one thing about yoga that I love the most and which characterises my classes, workshops and retreats, it’s the feeling of being connected.

A retreat offers us the possibility of a truly profound experience of yoga. Surrounded by nature and among like-minded people from every corner of the world, a unique journey unfolds. Conversations open up, emotions are untapped, and discoveries are made…

In the quiet of each morning, we begin our yoga practice in stillness, taking time to anchor our awareness in the present moment through a guided breathing exercise, a meditation or visualisation. Then, drawing on the energy of the rising sun and the freshness of a brand-new day, I lead you through a vinyasa flow that is both gentle and energising.

During the dip in energy that tends to follow lunchtime, the sessions slow down, allowing for a deeper exploration of the techniques and practices encountered earlier in the day. There’s also plenty of time for sinking into a profound state of relaxation with restorative or yin yoga, or even yoga nidra (yogic sleep) – sometimes accompanied by mantras, music, or myths.

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

Inner Balance

Inner Balance

Beginners, All Levels ✺ 25- 31 May 2023 ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

Yoga is, at its core, a practice that calms the mind. Our lives are often stressful, full of inevitable interruptions and challenges to overcome. Yoga gives us a tool to stay centered and to approach each challenge with serenity.
Over the course of our time together, we’ll explore these benefits through poses, breath work, and mantra singing.
We’ll learn the essentials of yoga and explore the myths and texts, which are the base of yoga philosophy and inspired this ancient practice.

In the mornings, we will move our bodies in a dynamic, playful morning flow. The basic asanas will be explained and some asanas we will practice together with a partner, allowing you to move deeper into the poses and feel the alignment.

In the afternoons, we’ll explore quieter practices like yoga nidra – a guided meditation, restorative yoga – a practice of deep relaxation, and singing. We’ll learn how to release the subtle layers of tension in the body and open ourselves up to space, to relief, and to breath.

Each day, we’ll come together over delicious meals to share, connect, and laugh. You’ll find inspiration and friendship in others, and perhaps in yourself as well. When it’s finally time to return home, you’ll leave feeling restored, reenergised, and fortified to take on whatever life gives you.

This retreat is perfect for everyone completely or relatively new to yoga. All levels are welcome though.

Slow Vinyasa Flow All Level English Yin Casa Erica, Spain June Restorative Nidra Imogen North Spain

The Medicine of Awareness

The Medicine of Awareness

All Level ✺ 8- 14 June ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

This retreat is a mission of grace. Trapped in a masculine led society we can, quite easily, get overwhelmed by action and results, pushed forward into ‘doing’ as opposed to just ‘being’, we might feel stripped of our connection of what it feels like to be feminine. But seek and you shall find.  

This week with Imogen will be an opportunity to slow down, practice more introspective, tender practices so you can instinctively seek out what is authentic to the feminine you. We will call on the supernatural feminine to guide and teach us the path of inner awakening – restoring our vital energies so we can move forward from this week with wisdom.  

Through your senses and your intuition you will harness your power, embodying all that you feel, enabling you to trust in a greater guiding wisdom in all aspects of your life. As we work through the week we will shine light on self-limiting belief, habit, patterns, judgment. You can use this awareness as your medicine to begin to lift the veil leaving the week focused, clear and bright.  

Each morning will include a slow embodied vinyasa practice heavily interwoven with meditations, self-enquiry, yin 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.

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.

The Journey Home

The Journey Home

All Level ✺ 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.

Journalling and self enquiry will play a large role in our experience together, as a means to spark greater clarity, growth and transformation.

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

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

January Vinyasa Flow All Level Gentle English Fleur van Hille Restorative La Viñuela, Spain Nidra

Reflect & Renew

Reflect & Renew

All Level ✺ 21-27 January ✺ La Viñuela, Spain

As the Earth experiences seasons, so too do our bodies and minds. Spring brings new life and color, summer rains abundance, autumn calls us to shed our unnecessary layers, and winter turns us inward. How can we find a way to honor this phase that is so profoundly connected not only to life, but to who we are as well?

Winter is a time when both our bodies and the earth are slower, calmer, and more withdrawn. We burrow into piles of warm blankets, and we are called to rest more deeply. Winter is ruled by our intuition, so we will set our intentions for the year ahead. What are we ready to let go of? What are we ready to call in?

During this week, we will move our bodies in dynamic vinyasa morning classes that will get stagnant energy flowing again, leaving us feeling freer and lighter.

In the afternoons and evenings we will rest deeply to release even subtler layers of tension from the body and mind. Often these are a kind of holding on that we are not even aware of. When they are released, we find space, relief, and we feel an opening up.

 

These sessions will include yoga nidra, a guided meditation while you are laying down, restorative yoga, in which we restore the body to a state of complete relaxation, and singing mantras, to connect to our hearts.

The Spanish sun will bring light and uplifting energy. The mountains will offer us a broader view. And as we zoom out from our daily lives, we will give rise to new ideas, inspiration, and energy for the year ahead.

Gift yourself a week of quiet me-time surrounded by others looking for connection, inspiration, and shared laughter. Come to rest, reflect and get new energy for the year ahead.

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!

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
