ASHTANGA YOGA RETREAT WITH ASTRID HOLTE


Jul 27 – Aug 2

RETREAT DETAILS


Schedule
  • 09.00 Ashtanga Yoga practice
  • 11.00 Brunch
  • Free time
  • 17.00 Workshops/Yin Yoga
  • 19.00 Dinner

This Ashtanga Yoga retreat is designed for anyone who wants to advance their yoga practice; both beginners and more experienced practitioners are welcome.

During this Yoga retreat, the days will consist of daily morning Mysore classes as well as one led class. The Mysore style (self-practice) provides a unique opportunity to work one‐on‐one with the teacher to progress and experience the benefits of yoga practice. In selected afternoons we will have talks about the practice, method and the eight limbs of yoga by Patanjali and how it can support us in our daily lives and the choices we make.

The retreat is located in a stunning countryside finca, where we serve delicious Mediterranean vegetarian meals and we will always ensure that the schedule leaves plenty of time to explore the beautiful surroundings of Mallorca.

Our team boasts vast local knowledge of the island and we are always available to organize any extra activities you might like – for example paddle surfing, sailing, scuba diving, hiking or horseback riding through the scenic Tramuntana Mountains.

There are a variety of beautiful beaches only a few kilometers away, and the rustic yet luxurious villa where you will be accommodated is the perfect place for reading, relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet of the surrounding nature.

 

Yoga can be practiced by anyone, whether young, old, very old, healthy or sick. Even so, the way in which a young person is taught will differ in a manner from the way in which an old or sick person will be taught. Therefore, each student must be considered as an individual and taught at a pace that is suitable for their situation in life.

THE LOCATION


This house is the perfect place for those who want to connect with nature and its quietness. As soon as we came in we could feel the special energy it has and we totally fell in love with it

This old but renovated finca has 11 spacious rooms that are fully equipped in a simple and rustic style, the owners did a great job refurbishing it while maintaining its unique character and soul.

It is surrounded by the Tramuntana Mountains, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2011 because of its scenic and cultural values and source of inspiration for artists of all nationalities.

Being located only 15 min away from Palma, 20 min away from the airport and well connected to all the main roads in the island makes it perfect for our retreats since our guests can enjoy different plans every day, from shopping and sightseeing in the beautiful centre of Palma, visiting picturesque little towns or going to the beach which is only 15 minutes away.

The house has a garden where every morning we pick up the products we´ll use and a pool with breathtaking views.
