YOGA AND ADVENTURE IN ALGARVE Let go of your fears, let the magic happen !! 13-19 September 2020
A bespoke week long retreat in a beautiful sunshine location with plenty of space for you to rebalance, re-energise and discover yourself. Learn or deepen your yoga practice in a intimate environment with quality, personalised coaching. Challenge yourself with horse riding, kayaking, surfing ... and parachute jumping !! Relax with spa, massages, on the beach or by the pool and with quality healthy home made food. Allow your emotions to come and to go with our tail painting workshop.
THE YOGA PROGRAMME A whole week for you to develop awareness of your chakra system through the powerful teachings of yoga. The chakra system is at the core of yoga practice with the intention to bring more harmony to your body, your mind and your soul. The chakras (Sanskrit for wheels) first appeared in the ancient Hindu texts, commonly known as the Vedas, and are a journey from your root to your connection with the Divine.
During our stay in Algarve, I will guide you through the opening and balancing of each of your chakras with the help of specific yoga poses, meditation and mantras. Every morning before we will have a two and a half-hour Vinyasa yoga flow practice focusing on a specific chakra, starting from the Root Chakra (Muladhara) to the Crown Chakra (Sahasrara). The yoga practice will also include meditation, pranayama and yoga nidra.
We will also explore the basics of Partner Yoga and Acro Yoga with a dedicated two hour workshop in the afternoon. In the evening I will guide you through a slower pace viyasa yoga or a yin yoga practice. You can also use the Yoga Shala during the free time for your own practice. If you want one-to-one sessions we can discuss how to make that work.
