Sacred Feminine Healing Yoga Retreat Spain
Hiking, Yoga, Conscious Breathwork, and Meditation Healing Retreat
A Sacred Feminine Retreat is designed to really honour ourselves as women in whatever cycle of life that we are in. Honour our innate strengths as women and let go of the pressure of living in a patriarchal society, releasing the perception that we are 'not enough', or losing sight of our authentic voice. Allow us to reconnect to the intuitive patterns of our bodies, honour the unique gifts we bring to the planet, and reassess to see if we are also honouring our individual journeys.
Those who start onto the green healing path often say that as they start to walk it they suddenly feel like they are home, that they are no longer alone. Nature reminds us and helps us to recognize and re-integrate our indigenous soul.
When we take the step to reconnect with Nature, we can soon feel her embrace. As we start to listen to the breath of the Earth and re-connect, with that innate energy exchange we step into a new and deeper level of healing, both for ourselves and the environment.
Of course, we have known about the power of nature to heal for centuries now, two German physicians in the 1800s actually found that fresh forest air helped to heal patients from tuberculosis. Nowadays, researchers have found that nature can actually cure many problems brought on by the stressful demands of modern living, by going back to our roots, our natural environment.
A Japanese study from 2010 found that participants that had exposure to forest environments showed more positive health markers than those surrounded by city conditions: “lower concentrations of cortisol, lower pulse rate, lower blood pressure, greater parasympathetic nerve activity, and lower sympathetic nerve activity.”
This Winter Sun Healing Retreat is designed to bring us out of the heavy energy of the Winter months and celebrate the start of Spring with all its renewed possibilities, and at the same time top up on our much-needed Vitamin D.
The villa is set on a peak of the Piedras Blancas hills, between olive groves, almond groves and vineyards. The town is also the starting point of the Ruta de la Pasa (Raisin Route).
We will take time to really connect with the energy of Nature, as we stop, pause and meditate after an invigorating hike. Enjoy the cleansing air of the mountains with our Conscious Breathing Techniques. We will start our day with a gentle unfolding sunrise yoga session, connecting both with the earth beneath us and the sky above.
8 km to Plaza de España, where we will find the Iglesia Parroquial de Nuestra Señora de Gracia, constructed between the 16th and 17th centuries, which offers us a mix of styles in its design, with Arabic arches and a modernist lattice grille in the choir.
Together we will commit to taking time to stop and really notice the beauty that surrounds us.
Sleep, rest and restore.
I choose the accommodation that is as closely connected to Nature as possible, to really enable us to feel the closeness of its healing power.
Each place is chosen to be in the heart of Nature, so we can simply leave the front door and enjoy a beautiful mountainous walk, or explore the coastal paths.
We have both comfortable and airy double and twin accommodation.
The accommodation is designed to help you relax in comfort and fully enjoy a good nourishing night's sleep after a day of walking, yoga, meditation, pranayama, and lots of laughter.
