The following activities are part of our yoga and hiking or trail running retreat in Spain, including our special events (see special events)
As well as in live there are in yoga 2 streams of energy: Yin and Yang. This are Chinese words for the two energy flows in our live and one needs the other. (there's no light without dark or no white without black etc.)
Yin yoga is all about total relaxation and letting go of tension. You'll stay in a position for several minutes and without force you'll sink in to it. Whit the help of your own breathing and gravity you get tension even from your connective tissue. Because space is getting more and more place in your body, energy can flow again threw your meridianen. Yin yoga is therefor seen as the feminine force. This form of yoga is also very benificial to stay in balance for power and endurance sports, because they use mostly the contractive force.
yang yoga / hatha yoga:
Yang yoga has multiple forms but al are active, more dynamic forms of yoga for example: power yoga yoga, asthanga yoga, vinyasa yoga and hatha yoga. With Yang yoga you'll build op power and endurance in your body. Its the male seen as the male energy in yoga. Position are on power and don't last that long. This yoga will give you warmth, strength and energy.
The classic Hatha yoga asanas have the of stimulation of the intern organs. It's characterised by asanas which are stable and comfortable for a short while. Hatha yoga increased popularity and new asanas were developed. This new asanas are working more on the extern body, like the mussels. The new goal was getting strong and fit.
Meditation comes in several forms during our yoga retreat in Spain. Next to the more standard forms on the mat we'll also offer walking meditation for example. We believe that meditation will benefit everybody to find more quiteness but that the form, place and duration is depending on the person and the moment/state of being your in. So don't make meditation into a competition against your self or others, where the winner will be the one who can sit still for hours. This is not the goal! Find stillness and awareness for yourself is, and this will be achieved in different ways. We'll guide you during this proces.
Nutrition is one of the 3 things we build our yoga retreat in Spain on. The tree healthy meals are included and vegan and vegetarian option are possible. We believe making diner together has two positive things: you'll learn from each other, it's fun. Also we only have pure products in the kitchen which all you can use freely. This benefits your body in a natural way and preparing food together makes you more aware of the nutrition and value of food.
Trail running or hiking:
We take you to beautiful places in the nature of Sierra de las Nieves. We can hike to the highest point of Torrecilla or take long walks/runs choosing one of the many "senderos" of Andalusie.
The hike or trail run will be guided and you can choose for the option trail run or a long hike every day. If you rather walk alone, we can provide you several routes on GPS.
During our yoga en hiking en/of trail running holiday you can feel muscles you're not used to use in this extensive way. So it's possible to book an sport or relaxing massage afterwards.
