Elemental Awakening

Intermediate ✺ 22nd - 28th August 2024 ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

Exploring Jivamukti Yoga through Nature’s Forces

Embark on a transformative journey through the ancient wisdom of yoga and the elemental forces of nature. Nestled in the serene embrace of natural landscapes, this retreat offers a unique opportunity to explore the interconnectedness of your body, mind, spirit and the five elemental energies: Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space (Ether).

Each day of the retreat is dedicated to one of these elements, guiding you through a holistic experience of balance and self-discovery. Mornings begin with meditation and pranayama following a Jivamukti Yoga class, setting the tone for the day’s exploration.

Afternoon classes offer asana workshops or poetry yin and restorative classes, inviting you to wind down as you connect with the essence of each element.

A Chakra Tuning class is included throughout the retreat to harmonise your energy centers. Carefully curated music enhances the atmosphere, fostering deep connection, introspection and fun!

Each day you’ll delve deeper into the fluidity of water, the transformative power of fire, the expansiveness of air and the transcendent beauty of space. Guided practices, group activities and moments of quiet reflection will support your journey towards a deeper understanding of yourself and your interconnectedness with the natural world.

Nadja Steinbach

Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher

Nadja’s wanderlust is innate, nurtured by years of cultural immersion. With a background in organic farming and a commitment to combating climate change, her journey into Jivamukti Yoga seamlessly extended her path.

She believes that the practice of yoga is a place of individual growth and acceptance by bringing together different people with a common ground. Being together in this space creates an overwhelming sense of unity that we so often miss in our daily lives. Holding space for this and whatever unfolds is the magic of yoga.

Nadja has been taught to teach the kind of class she wants to attend. In her classes you will experience elements of pranayama and asana, music and meditation, as well as hands-on assists. Her passion is to infuse spiritual teachings into physical practice, making ancient wisdom accessible and relevant. Music sets the tone, weaving themes into playlists, while humor adds a touch of levity.

Nadja teaches regular classes in Munich at Yogaloft Munich and Jivamukti Yoga Munich.

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
