Shakti Rasa Yoga Retreat Lanzarote

27 October to 3 November, 2018 

"Realise the Body of Light"
Lanzarote Island, Spain

 

This retreat is the highlight of my year. Come discover with me this new and stunning venue. As the nights grow long and the cold of late October settles in, come with me to the sunshine. Come to the peace of this beautiful volcanic island, where the sea water is still warm, the days balmy, and time opens up to make space for deep transformative yoga. 

Let go of the stress and live the life of a yogi! Right action can change everything. This retreat will show you how. It will immerse you into ancient practices with a contemporary twist, designed to deliver transformation of the highest order. Surrounded by the beauty and comfort of this most amazing venue, you experience deep in your cells the rocket fuel of authentic yoga.

Life becomes luminous.

This retreat is open to all sincere seekers of an authentic yogic experience, no matter what your previous experience of yoga might be. Wherever you are with yoga, this retreat will inspire you to commit or recommit to the life-transfiguring path of yoga.

THE PROGRAMME:

 

Every day includes:

  • Strong Shakti Rasa asana to invigorate, open and empower your body
  • Classical pranayama to bring clarity to your mind
  • Silent meditation to infuse your heart with peace 
  • Simple chanting to step-up the frequency of your energy field
  • Spiritual talks to kindle understanding of the highest order 
 
 

The retreat also integrates a yogic encounter with nature. The pulse of the cosmos resides in the sea, in mountains and rivers, volcanoes and forests and deserts. As much as time and weather permit, this retreat will teach you how to use the tools of practice to access the heartbeat of the natural world, which is the visible face of the divine. It is Shakti, a manifestation in time and space of Shiva. Lanzarote offers a rich landscape for this type of work.

Be prepared to do yoga on the beach, to meditate in a volcano, to chant under a starlit sky.

Shakti Rasa Yoga is an elegant style of practice that incorporates breath and awareness to access Shakti through every pose. You will learn how to use it to bring radiance to your daily life. I love questioning minds too, and the challenge real questions bring to the group process. So be prepared for some life-transforming experiences off the matt as well.  


Yoga is powerful medicine for body and soul. Prana rides on the breath. It is a stepped-down form of Shakti. Practice channels that pranic energy. It gives you a supple body, lucid mind, open heart. But most of all, it purifies the subtle body of light, quite literally raising the vibration of your cells.

THE EXCURSIONS

 

All excursions and transport during the trips are included!

We will have time to discover the magic of Lanzarote also, exploring some extraordinary places in nature, bathing in isolated beaches, meditating inside a volcano, trekking though cliffs and watching the beautiful sunrise or sunset from the best spots of the island. The daily schedule is flexible. We will let the weather and our inclination direct us. 


Outstanding excursions:

  • Endless golden sand Famara Beach (Surfing and best sunset spot)
  • Trekking in Caldera Blanca Volcano
  • Trip boat to La Graciosa Island
  • Crystal clear and blue Papagayo Beaches (Snorkeling spot)
  • Meditation inside El Cuervo Volcano

 

The Venue


An eco-conscious villa surrounded by vineyards located in a large property in open countryside, with a harmonious and peaceful atmosphere far from traffic and light contamination and only a 15-minute drive from the best beaches of the island.

A unique paradise in nature to support your practice, where you can let the healing essence of the place regenerate you.

You will stay in beautiful little houses or studios shared for two people, each with their own bathroom and terrace. You may enjoy the solar-heated pool and a large organic garden with fruit trees and vegetables.

We will be treated to high quality vegetarian food that is made fresh and mostly organic, picked directly from the garden and cooked with love and dedication for your health and pleasure.

My Hymn to Surya: 
The blue light of morning holds a promise. The ancient rishis knew that. But don’t just believe it, investigate for yourself. It is happening for me right now in a most serendipitous way.
