Jo and Raki will introduce you to nourishing healing practices – enabling you to step back from the busyness and weather of life…to a place of okay-ness and peace. Practices that sooth and are soothing of themselves. Let’s try easy instead of hard, inviting our mind and body can let go and feel safe. Here we meet our true unburdened selves. Our true nature.
You can dip your toe into the retreat, enjoy as much as feels right for you, or simply dive in. You are free to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this beautiful haven, walk in the mountains or head to the coast…and feel the seas breath.
This retreat is accessible to all levels. Neurogenic Yoga™ and TRE is a revolutionary technique in trauma healing and stress reduction.This practice combines yoga asana and pranayama with reactivation of the body’s natural, therapeutic shaking response. Often described as a pleasurable, comforting, some say meditative experience .This shaking response in humans, much the same as the instinctual shaking in animals, is the nervous system’s way of discharging long-held tension and trauma, in order to restore the body to wholeness.
We’ll begin each day with guided meditation – which can be enjoyed seated or lying if pretzel sitting isn’t for you! On some days we will begin with soothing breath, pranayama and cleansing breath Kriyas
There will be daily – morning and early evening yoga practice inviting you to be nourished by gentle Hatha practice We will weave a blend of Hatha based Neurogenic Yoga, TRE and Nidra throughout your stay. Daytimes are free to discover the island…..or to meet yourself … and simply be. Lunch is always available for those choosing to rest during the day in the embrace of La Serrania. Dinner will follow early evening Yoga. Afterwards.. some evenings we’ll gather for meditation, yoga nidra or for Raki and I to share our ‘off the mat’ tools for life. One evening we will come together for the wonderful experience of the Agni Hotra Fire Ceremony.
During our retreat we will have a day of silent practice. This is deeply nourishing and to date – everyone, even those who have not experienced this before….always want more!
