Join Us On One Of Our Yoga Retreat Holidays October, Portugal Europe


yoga retreats octoberJoin one of our October yoga retreats for a one or two week break deep in the heart of nature and allow yourself to really immerse into your natural self. We have our ashtanga vinyasa weeks that focus on either, re-establishing your practice or building on the knowledge gained through an established practice where the breath is the guide, synchronising each movement mindfully and inviting the mind into the vinyasa flowing style of this wonderful practice. We intimately connect to ourselves by using several mindful meditation practices which allows for us to feel peaceful in the present moment and learn skilful ways of holding our own bodies and mind by gently guiding the wondering mind back to the moment. Our evening yin classes allow for us to create a softening deep inside which nurtures and comforts us in each and every posture.
This year we bring together a lot of our teaching and training over the years and share it on our earth spirit yoga retreat that combines modern and ancient practices. On this week we will practice qi gong, shamanic drumming, vinyasa yoga, yin yoga and look at the fundamental practice of mindful meditation. We also have a talk on the medicine wheel and why this is so important for today’s world and how we can apply it to our lives. We will also be holding a ceremony at the end of the week.
We have recently opened a new space at the bottom of our valley which is situated next to our stream for our ceremony work. This month looks to be a refreshing month and will help us to prepare for the winter months.
