5 Element Yoga Retreat in Spain Oct 30-Nov 5
Yoga, the 5 Elements and You in a Biosphere! In this retreat we want you to relax and disconnect from your daily tasks, to rediscover and deepen your yoga practice and to deeply connect with the natural world by learning about the 5 Elements of yoga and the body and by spending quality time in a natural setting.
Type of Event
Monday to Friday:
- AM morning meditation
- Two daily hatha, vinyasa
- Drawing and Partner Yoga workshops by Astrid Jirka
- PM leisure time
- 3 vegetarian meals a day
We want you to connect more deeply with yourself and with nature on this retreat. Connecting deeply with the breath in our bodies and with nature on a daily basis you will have the opportunity to re-connect and become more centered within yourself. With additional opportunities for meditation, massage, relaxing by the pool and hiking in the nearby hills, you will become more relaxed and your energy will be renewed!
You will learn about the ancient theory of the 5 Elements and how they are expressed in the body and in the yoga practice, as well as learn about Yantras and how to draw them. (Yantras come from the Tantra yoga tradition and are a visual metaphor for how we can imagine the prana/energy in our world and our bodies, continuously contracting and expanding from a unified center into the uni-verse and back again.)
Astrid will also offer a Partner yoga workshop where you can explore the basics of partner yoga, get to know some new people more intimately and have lots of fun by safely trying some poses or sinking more deeply into well-known poses by working with a partner or two! (Please note: You do not need to come with a partner for this workshop. We hope you will make new friends while we play together.)
¡Come and join us for a week of rest, connection, creativity and fun on your holidays!
