Taking time for a yoga retreat is an opportunity to deepen your practice. For seven days, an extended practice to include meditation and pranayama, a nourishing diet, and a beautiful place to relax and renew will direct you to a deeper connection to yourself.
Join Mona for a yoga immersion in the beautiful south of Spain!
Two daily yoga classes will be offered in a state-of-the-art studio equipped with 24 rope wall stations. The morning session will be active asana practice and the evening session will include restorative asana and pranayama practice. Both are suitable for all levels. Modifications and options can be provided to accommodate physical issues or injuries.
We will practice asana with the help of the yoga wall, which provides an opportunity for traction and a different relationship to gravity. Traction of the spine creates space which according to yoga philosophy, provides healing, both physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Through our week together, we will learn the physical and psychological origins of back pain, practice sequences for specific areas of back release and strengthening, learn asana modifications and pranayama to help with back pain as well as resilience, and learn about nutrition, aromatherapy, and lifestyle support.
A session to cover Ayurvedic aromatherapy and its relationship to yoga practice will include self-care products.
