 Yoga & Mediation Retreat with Veda Ela

Finca Casa Rana / Mallorca – 30.05. till 06.06.2018

Enjoy a week of exploration through deep meditation and Yoga to relax, de-stress, and rejuvenate expanding your mind, body and soul.

Dive deep into

“We will dive deep into ourselves, explore our body and mind, face our issues, clean and let go, so we can find our true self, a self that is complete and happy.

This yoga retreat will interweave asana practice with mythic narrative and yogic teachings to create a rich experience of alignment. Elas gentle and compassionate dedication to yoga inspires and holds space for students to journey deeper into their body, heart, mind, and spirit.

Ela will teach Hatha Yoga Flow (Yang Yoga), drawing from different styles and Restorative Yoga (Yin) as a meditative practice, balancing the dynamic power of flow, with the softness and stillness of meditation. She encourages each person to connect with his or her own body and mind bringing a strong focus on the breath, guiding into precise body alignment & deep relaxation within.
These ancient yogic techniques take you on a deep journey into your inner core, gently peeling layers of physical, mental and emotional tension. The exploration through meditation, inquiry and body awareness, will support you to re-connect with your true self. Through this transformative practice you will discover a place of rest (rejuvenation) and relaxation.

Towards the end of the retreat we will practice “in silence” for one day (verbal guidance will still be given throughout this period). This is an integral part of the retreat, which all participants are encouraged to engage in fully. This practice is carefully designed also for participants who are unfamiliar with silence techniques. You will be surprised by the ease of the practice and the deep relaxation that it provides.

This retreat is suitable for all levels and backgrounds. Each person receives individual attention, adjustments and encouragement to go beyond any self-imposed limitations.

The whole retreat will be held in “english” !
