Uplifting yoga sessions

You will enjoy two yoga sessions per day. The morning practice, taught by Ellen, will be a combination of meditation, pranayama, hatha  and slow vinyasa yoga to open and energize your body and mind.

The afternoon sessions are thought by Peter. These sessions have a workshop style setting and will give you awareness and techniques to improve your asana and bring your practice to the next level.

All yoga equipment, including yoga mats, is available at the retreat centre.

Personal guidance

During the first few days Ellen and Peter are available for private consultations after brunch for questions and personal attention.

Silence

The mornings are in silence. From waking till the end of the morning practice you will remain without social engagement to keep your attention within. This will benefit your inner process and help to clear the mind.

Other practices

On top of the yoga sessions we will have additional embodiment and reflective practices,, dance, tarot and journaling. These practices support the process of this weeks transformation.

“A Great and Transformative Yoga Retreat in an Amazing Place!”

It was an amazing and transformative yoga retreat where I could really recharge my batteries, disconnect from the busy daily life, and get new energy. Ellen and Peter are a good team, and their yoga sessions were great. They have a lot of knowledge, and explained all practices. Even for me, as a “Yoga beginner”, the yoga sessions were good to follow. The place “La Serrania” is amazing to calm down, get connected with Nature, and meet amazing new people, which made the whole trip to a perfect experience.

Cancellation 2 months before retreat – No refund (unless you find someone to take your place).

Are the practices suitable for all levels?

Having taught mixed level studio classes for many years, both Ellen and Peter are skilled at accommodating a wide variety of bodies & abilities. The sessions will be accessible to established beginners, as well as intermediate & advanced practitioners.

What can I do in my free time?
Peter and Ellen suggest to slow down and take time for yourself so you can truly unwind from your day to day life. La Serrania is tucked away in a nice valley away from towns and people. You can zone-out looking out over the mountain views, relax or read a book by the pool. Walks in nature are recommended (maps with routes are available) or you can book a massage with one of the therapists on site.

Can I go on an excursion?
On Wednesday we made space in the schedule to go on an excursion. There is no afternoon workshop that day so you have plenty of time to go and explore alone or together with other participants.
