Embodied presence - a yoga and meditation retreat
23-30th September 2015
At La Finca Paradiso, Spain - a luxury Eco retreat.
With Mandy Brinkley, BWY Dip, SYT
Treat yourself to seven glorious days devoted to creative exploration into yoga practices and wisdom teachings that offer guidance, inspiration and support for living a more conscious and embodied life.
Each day will include skilful sequences of asana combining rigorous vinyasa, restorative poses and yin yoga all with individualised attention to detail and integrated with pranayama, chanting, meditation and contemplation, with inspirational readings from wisdom teachings.
It is my heart felt intention that you receive the full benefit of this retreat time and as such 1-1 time with me is included in your retreat and you will be able to book time with me in Spain plus a follow up online session on your return home.
There will be generous amounts of time off the mat for you to enjoy the setting and assimilate the practises, whether alone or with friends. This will be a coming together of great people and you will now doubt make new friends and deepen your relationships with old ones.
Join us and return home deeply rested, shifted, clearer, nourished, feeling better able to connect with your heart wisdom. You will be more inspired to make choices that support you and better able to navigate life's challenges with grace, humour and strength.
About Finca Paradiso
Your home for the week is a model of luxury sustainability and an ideal hideaway for retreat. Set amidst nature with 360 degree views of the surrounding Sierra Cabrera Mountain Range and the Mediterranean Sea, it has 4 acres of fruitful Spanish gardens, a majestic pool, lots of quiet corners, on site support staff and chef to prepare your fresh, delicious meals.
With plenty of free time too you can explore, indulge in a massage, take a dip, wander and rest in the extensive grounds, or do more practice! The local beach is just 20 minutes drive away with a shuttle service (there is a charge) available from La Finca Paradiso.
Maria Angeles is your highly experienced chef for the week and will be creating a wonderful variety of delicious, vegetarian dishes for you to enjoy at breakfast, lunch and dinner. All dietary requirements and allergies can be catered for and you can indicate any preferences on your booking form.
All of the food is organic or sustainably sourced whenever possible and of a very high standard with much of it being freshly grown in the gardens. Teas, coffees, fruit juices, cordials and fresh fruit are available throughout the day. Plus you can pick your own fruit any time from the abundant gardens which include a citrus orchard, a tropical fruit orchard and a garden fruit orchard with grapes, peaches, bananas, avocados, guavas and figs to name but a few. You will also be enjoying the estate's own olive oil produced from the many young and ancient olive trees, one of which is over a 1000 years old.
