Monchique, Algarve . Portugal
Yin Yoga, Meditation, Journaling, Contemplation, Sound
In this Yin Yoga Retreat we come to the beautiful mountains of Monchique in the Algarve for a contemplation journey. Four days with deep restorative practices, meditation, journaling and sound.
Every day we will explore the Yin Yoga practice and its foundations of the 5 element theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
This retreat creates a space of rest for you to observe and take ownership on your own journey.
The importance of Stillness
In a busy world like the one we live in, on a fast paced lifestyle that we are thought to embrace, it is imperative to stop and to question - where is our attention and energy going? When we feel drained, when we feel tired and disconnected, when we feel confused, the answer is to stop and to observe.
To let the distractions fall out and to connect to that wisdom that lives inside. In this mountain retreat you can expect less noise and less busyness. We want to create that space of awareness through our practices and through our silence - so we can see the essential and what really matters.
When we arrive to the mountain we feel the grounding energy that invites us to go slower and to enjoy the essence of time.
