HEARTFELT SURRENDER

Banner2.png

Spring Retreat
19-26/5 2019


”It is not a matter of abandoning the ego. It is more a willingness to release it, much like a butterfly metamorphosing from a caterpillar and being set free from its cocoon. When shifting from ego to soul, a journey of surrender means daring to open up and step forward into the mystery of life.”
— Matt Kahn

Welcome to join this Unique Yoga Experience in the Magical Island of Menorca. During one week we dive into a Somatic Experience Based Practice with the intension to explore how to truly Inhabit the Body and improve the Bodys Intelligence in Movement. To help us explore this we use the Virya Yoga Method and the different spectras of Somatic Meditation. At the same time, we explore Menorcas beauty and History through different Excursions around the Island, as well as the charm of Ciutadella de Menorca. 

THEMES

Heartfelt Surrender

  • How Somatic Meditation can be used to fully Inhabit the Body and to Explore the Idea of how our Spiritual Essence is expressed within the Body.

LOCATION

During the week we live in a Beautiful Agroturism Hotel in the Central South Part of the Island. The Farm with its majestic house and surrounding romantic garden has a panoramic view over the south-west part of the Island. The Hotel with its common areas include a pool, Chapelle, and a restaurant. The studio where we will be practicing is separated from the main building. While practicing, we can both enjoy the morning sun as well as the view of the sunset behind the rural landscape. The animals living at the farm will be there daily welcoming us to the practice. 

Because of the great Location of the House, there are many possibilities regarding where to go and what to discover on the Island. Just 10-15 min away, we have Cala Galdana and the long beaches of Sant Thomas. Ciutadella de Menorca is 20 min away.

MENORCA ISLAND

Legend tells that the winds of Menorca modify the personality of people. Maybe that is the reason why those who came here once as tourists mostly return.

Menorca certainly has a very strong personality, and a very different one to the rest of the islands. Menorca, the "minor" island, as it was called by Romans, has an almost virginal interior (compared for instance to the "major" island, Mallorca) and shows interesting remains of its old history. 

On the other hand, there are beaches and lonely bays around it at a length of 216 kilometers. An ideal resort for all those who are looking for true relaxation.


TESTIMONIALS

I did my first real yoga retreat with Robin in Menorca, it was a perfect experience for body and soul. Robins yoga practices are heaven for the body and his way to teach is extremely pleasant.
I returned home feeling taller, stronger and more down to earth than ever. I can only recommend his yoga to everybody.
— Leea (Zürich, Switzerland)
I had such a good time during this retreat and it was a perfect ending of the summer before the most busy time at work.

Robin is a wonderful yoga teacher with great knowledge and understanding of the body and movement. He was attentive to the group and adjusting the program if needed, both the classes and the extra activities.

Minorca is beautiful and the perfect place for a retreat with not too many tourists during that time of year (September). The house had everything you could ask for, with a swimming-pool and only a short walk into the beautiful town of Ciutadella and the beach there. The food was amazing, with three home cooked meals every day and always fruit and nuts available.

I recommend this retreat to anyone who wants to take a break from their busy lives and explore the body and mind together with other like minded people, in a beautiful setting and with a wonderful warm-hearted yoga teacher and host.
