If you create space for yourself in your life, just temporarily...to get away from the city, from the noise, from your daily home routine, from your kids and all your chores - Get away to a place of quiet, where you will be supported and in a space where you can just take time out for yourself and breathe, think and just be.. You will transform & come back recharged, with new ideas, motivation, more energy, healthier, happier, stronger you. Fill your own cup first, so it overflows, to then be able to deal with anything that comes your way...
If you are ready for a wonderful, life transforming, powerful shift in your life - this is for you! Your fears will be replaced with courage & love, as the burdens of life and the stresses of day, will be lifted from your shoulders. You will gain knowledge and understanding of how to find yourself more in tune with your positive side and more able to face with any difficulties that may come your way. You will become aware of things that have been keeping you from living the life you love and receive strength in letting them go, as well as start creating the life you want to live!
As you sit by the pool gazing at the breathtaking views of the mountains that are surrounding you...the most beautiful sunset colours and shades are moving across the mountain tops, as the sun sets for the day. You sit in stillness with a gentle smile on your face, mesmerised by the beauty of it all and reflecting on your day and experiences.. in your heart..you feel peace, happiness and gratitude. In the distant background you hear the birds singing, happy conversations and laughter that your new friends are sharing with each other.. It’s the end of an incredible day spent experiencing uplifting, healing & life changing practices. You can hardly believe that, at last, you’re here..and it’s even better than you have imagined…
Starting our mornings with stillness..
One of the most delightful ways to start your mornings with, is meditation. Which is why we will be starting our days with guided blissful meditations, surrounded by 360 degree views of the sacred mountains, in our beautiful dome shaped Shala (practice space) , to set you up for the day ahead. Breathing in, breathing out and letting ourselves go with the flow , clear focus and zen vibes! Meditation will help you to enhance your awareness, prevent stress, anxiety, as well as promote your overall emotional health and outlook on life!
Energising Vinyasa morning yoga practice, will stretch & strengthen the body. It will help you to release tension and stress built up physically and emotionally. You will feel recharged and balanced with new energy! Our Yoga sessions are tailored to suit all levels. You will have the chance to develop & deepen your physical practice. Towards the end of the day, we will bathe in the sounds of live music played by Carlos Mundalah, whilst practicing relaxing Yin Yoga.
You will also have plenty of time during the afternoon, to soak up some sun, read a book, take a recharging nap or cool off in the swimming pool...
Everyday you will be joined by the local Shamans, who will help us initiate you into the 9 Empowering Munay-Ki Rites. The nine rites of initiation to become a person of wisdom and power. You will have the chance to experience a sweatlodge “Temazcal”, which originated with pre-Hispanic Indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica. This universal ritual benefits the body and the soul, balancing your mind and emotions for inner peace and harmony, while releasing stress and detoxifying the body through chanting and ancient music.
Gain deeper connection and understanding of the four elements, which are essential to life, through the "4 Element Cleansing & Cacao Ceremony", taught by the Shamans. In this workshop, you will have a personal cleanse with the 4 elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, as well as learn how to perform this yourself whenever you feel called to do so. This is an empowering ritual, which also helps to detach and let go of past negative, painful relationships in a safe space and a safe way. Cacao Ceremony is an opportunity to connect with your yourself. It aids in any transformational shift you are working towards, whether you are looking to deepen your understanding of who you are, release old patterns and traumas, or move into a more self-confident space.
A retreat wouldn't be a retreat, if we forced you to do every single activity on the schedule! Whether you would like to take a break, or just reflect on your journey and have some personal "me time", you have the option to opt out, from anything you wish on the schedule..
After spending a week.. learning, transforming on all levels, gaining wisdom with your teachers and the local Shamans... you will return reborn, have a heart full of gratitude, feel confident and happy!
