2nd – 4th October 2020 at Eco Mountain Retreat Centre , Southern Catalonia
in deep nature
A weekend to rest & nurture your true essence and vitality in deep nature.
In the incredible, wild setting of the Cardo Mountains, Tarragona, at stunning Nomada Retreat Centre. For maximum 7 participants.
What we will do
With two daily yoga classes , early morning and evening, in the spacious, airy sala or by the pool in the early morning. Where you will deepen into postures over the weekend, through a deep listening to body and awakening of the spine to find freedom, creativity and strength of movement. A yoga practice allows and honours body where the posture is no longer the goal.
‘…this beautiful way , the practice is just so perfect for now around the waiting , waiting to see what arises and with no expectation- which with everything is a practice – so the way you are teaching this is a really good way of being in the body with that , as well as watching how things are and fall away in the mind , to be with the arising and falling away in the body too …of sensation and movement ‘
