Yoga & Ayurveda Wellness All-inclusive Retreat 2023 - Barcelona
YOGA & AYURVEDA WELLNESS ALL-INCLUSIVE RETREAT 2023
Myoga Studio and Connie Marin invite you to find inner balance through yoga, Ayurveda workshops, and relaxation in a beautiful eco-oasis surrounded by vineyards! We will focus on slowing down, inner well-being and connection to ourselves.
Join us in a beautiful Masia, 45 minutes away by car from Barcelona, from Friday, September 15th to Sunday, September 17th, 2023.
Located just 40 minutes from Barcelona, Alaya Retreat Centre is an idyllic destination for those seeking nature, revitalization and wellness. You will escape the busy lifestyle of the city, to embrace inner calm and balance. Ayurveda is the sister science of yoga, a natural healing system that brings the perfect balance between your personality, body, mind, and spirit.
Connie Marin is a certified Ayurveda therapist and will lead various sessions during this weekend to help you understand better the Ayurveda science, develop your knowledge of the 3 doshas and discover healthy habits and recipes to integrate easily into your day-to-day. She will give you solutions through Ayurveda for inner balance. By the end of summer, Pitta dosha (heat) may have accumulated in your body, causing impurities that could lead to imbalances during cooler months if they’re not cleared out. We will prepare the body for this transitional period with gentle cleansing practices and recipes to nurture your body.
Lydie is a certified Yoga Teacher that will guide you through relaxing and dynamic Yoga and breath work sessions to balance the energy in your body as well as removing physical and emotional tensions we may all have. The yoga part is suitable for all practitioners to increase, awareness, flexibility, and strength in the body and mind. We learn about meditation practices, Psychotherapeutic Yoga, Vinyasa, Tantra Yoga as well as adding some soothing sound baths working on emotional cleansing. We will develop consciousness and harmony in our entire being.
We will spend 3 days and 2 nights together sharing knowledge and connections with enthusiasm and laughter!
