“DO NOT SEEK TO FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE WISE, SEEK WHAT THEY SOUGHT” Matsuo Basho
The retreat is open to everyone so feel free to bring non-yoga partners and friends (they will have a great time anyway).
With Sea views form the huts and the Yoga Shala. It is in this natural haven for beauty and peace that you will truly begin to completely reconnection to yourself and the wonder of nature around you. And its the perfect place to do yoga.
The 5 Elements and Yoga
In Ayurvedic philosophy (springing forth from the same roots as yoga) are Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether (light, life, consciousness, space). They are found in all aspects of life and in all things. They are wonderful to explore both physically, mentally and spiritually while in the asanas (postures).
Interestingly, many other cultures integrate a concept of the 5 Elements, such as the Celtic tradition and the Chinese (although slightly different: wood, fire, earth, metal and water). Not much is actually written about the 5 Elements in Yoga, but they are believed to be represented in the first 5 chakras (energy centres or “wheels of light”), climbing in order from the root chakra to the throat chakra.
Over this week we will work with the Five Elements using Vinyasa Flowing Yoga, Yin (a restorative type of yoga), Partners yoga, Acro, Pranayama, Chants and Meditations to bring awareness and balance to every cell. We think this is the perfect location for a playful, relaxing and enjoyable retreat.
