“I loved my yoga retreat with Julio and Lailla. They put so much care and attention into every detail. I felt very well looked after the whole time. I left the retreat feeling calm and refreshed, and with many tools, to integrate into my day-to-day life to improve my wellbeing.”
About the Retreat
In the midst of everyday life, we forget to connect with the wisdom of our body and of nature.
This weekend has been designed as a space for us to take a moment to stop and recharge. To reconnect with the teachings of nature and the 5 elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether.
You will be immersed and nurtured by the practices of Yoga, Pranayama, Intuitive movement, Meditation, and a deep connection with nature which will be tools to reconnect us with the elements of nature and it's teachings
What you will enjoy on the weekend:
Daily Hatha Yoga Practices will ignite your internal fire as well as ground yourself in the beauty of the present moment.
Through our Hatha classes, we will explore the connection with the elements while creating harmony within the body, mind, and spirit.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga in which poses are held for long periods of time. This practice is designed to promote connection with the earth element, encouraging grounding and stability. Yin yoga can be especially beneficial for those who live fast-paced lives and need to find more stillness and balance.
Pranayama is an element of yoga that involves regulating one's breath and the whole energetic body. The word itself is derived from two Sanskrit words: prana, meaning "life force or energy," and Yama, meaning "to control or extend." By working with the breath (representing the element of air), we will learn how to control the flow of prana, creating effects throughout the body and mind.
The intuitive movement practice comes into this retreat to remind us of the natural flow of life. It connects us with the element of water, allowing us to be more fluid, clear with our intentions, more open and flexible in life!
Sacred Elemental Teachings
Together we will explore the ancient teachings of the Ayurveda and Shamanic wisdom relating to the element or Eath, Water, Fire, Air and Ether, and how they can translate to our everyday life. So that when you leave this retreat you can apply simple practices in your routine and continue to feel connected with yourself and with nature
