The Internal sensing of the body - continually tracking what´s happening ”in here” - evolved long before the hearing and seeing that tell us about the world ”out there”. The neural architecture of this sensing is ancient and fundamental, and during your own development in utero, it was the basis for your very first experiences - and the first glimmering of consciousness.
— Rick Hanson
  • What does it mean to truly inhabit the Body, and how can we learn to listen to its intelligence? 

These are some of the questions we will investigate during this Weekend Retreat up on the Hills of Sitges. The intention with this retreat is to offer an experience that brings perspective, freedom and creativity to your practice, as well as insights about our body as a non-dualistic phenomenon. With the help of the Virya Yoga Method we indulge in different themes from a somatic experienced based approach in the purpose of embodying qualities the spirit and the architecture of the body.

Entrance

LOCATION

Vineyard

We will be staying in a 16th-century farmhouse located in the Garraf Natural Park, just 10 min from Sitges and 25 min from Barcelona Airport. The Farm consists of 5 houses, that are surrounded by more than one hectare of vineyards.  Because of its close connection to nature and history, the owners are putting great value on acts of sustainability such as water and energy saving, heritage conservation and landscape integration. 

Depending on time and weather, we have the possibilities to practice both indoor and outdoor, in the pool area with shade or at the upper terrace with a stunning panoramic view of the Sitges Coastline.  

THEMES

  • The practice of tuning in to the Felt Sense - tracking whats happening "in here" instead of "out there". 
  • Different Perspectives of Conciousness: The practicer of connecting to and differentiating the Bodily Sense of Matter (the Body), Energy and Fundamental Consciousness. How to make it graspable and experience it in a concrete way. 
  • How to increase our sensory relationship to a bodily sense of Groundedness, Spaciousness, Inner Vericality and Open heartedness. 
  • How a non-dualistic way of looking at the Body can change our Bodily Experience in stillness and in movement.  
  • The difference between an experience based practice vs. a practice based on reaching an idea of a form or pose. 
  • Theory into practice: How the Body maintains Form, Inner Space and Integrity from a Biomechanical point of view.
