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 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.
Awareness is about restoring your freedom to choose what you want instead of what your past imposes on you.’ ~ Deepak Chopra

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
