Chakra Healing Retreat
Just as we have a physical body with a physical anatomy, we have an energetic body with an energetic anatomy as well. In this five-day retreat, we will not only learn to understand the chakra system, but we will also learn how to balance it, realizing our power to heal ourselves.
Type of Event
We have another retreat on 13th -19th March.
All inclusive (not including flights and transfers)
As each individual is different, we will discover each chakra separately, understanding their purpose, and how we lose and reinforce energy in each, with not only our yoga practice, but also with our wellbeing.
Styles of yoga taught:
This Chakra Healing Retreat will include two Hatha yoga classes a day, with an active practice in the morning, focusing on a new chakra each day, and a remedial class in the evening. Hatha Yoga was designed to strengthen and purify the mind and body, connecting breath with yoga postures to stimulate specific organs and energetic centers in the body, generating a healthier, stronger, more aware and quieter mind and body. Because we will focus on a new chakra each day, each morning class will be different from the one before. However, Chakra Healing Retreat guests can expect more strength forward classes in the morning, where we will hold each pose for up to one minute, providing our bodies with enough space to reinforce energy into the chakra we focus on that day. And because the aim of Chakra Healing Retreat is to balance, we will harmonize our strength forward morning class with an evening restorative class, holding relaxing poses for up to three minutes, and using our external environment (touch, sound, and smell) to calm the mind and body.
