Finding Stillness

15- 21 May 2022, Spain

vinyasa yoga * restorative yoga * all level

Our day-to-day lives can be the source of comfort, security and nourishment, but they can also leave us feeling stuck, sad and angry. Likewise, our thoughts and daydreams can be the basis for both inspiration and frustration.
This retreat is an invitation to look at the relationships we have with our ‘heaven’ and with our ‘earth’, and to make friends with them both using yoga and meditation, in order to gain access to the still point that sits between them.

‘Earth’ represents gravity, food and material things. Earth is the exhale – it has a downward moving energy; it is the ground on which we stand, it is our foundation. Heaven represents air, possibility, ideas and vision. ‘Heaven’ is the inhale – it’s the deep breath we take when we expand into space.
Yoga and meditation are practices of joining those two forces – of balancing our need to touch the ground, to have deep roots which hold us steady in the most turbulent times, with our need to feel free, able to grow and explore.

In this week-long retreat we will practice meditation, yin yoga and vinyasa, and use them as tools for examining our circumstances with calmness, trusting the ground we stand on, and giving ourselves to the open space of uncertainty.

about the place

Surrounded by mountains and sea, Casa Erica is very peacefully located on the coast of Andalusia, between Málaga and Nerja. It’s only a 600m walk to the beach. While being warmed by the sun you will enjoy the view over the countryside and the ocean. Between the yoga classes you can chill at the pool, enjoy a relaxing massage or discover the surroundings.
