Retreat for your nerves
From 1 to 3 May
(270€ if you pay before 10/04)
Knowing and self-regulating our experience through the Nervous System
What are the feelings you usually experience after finishing a yoga class? They can be very diverse. There are those who are more aware of what they are feeling, experiencing deep satisfaction or more uncomfortable emotions. Do you feel a deep calm? or an activation? do you feel more acceptance? or more confrontation with internal mechanisms that have come to light? These are all manifestations of our nervous system.
Through this we come into contact with reactive spaces, of tension and stress as well as spaces of calm, softness and tranquility. We establish patterns that give us automated responses that organize our relationship with ourselves and the world.
Contemporary society drives us to be in a continuous state of alert, without realizing that we can be more observant and less reactive. In this lifestyle, are you aware of the choices you make? And if you are, where do you make them from? The nervous system registers and establishes our patterns in the face of external and internal experiences. From that perceptual base we observe, think and move through our daily lives.
Working on the nervous system leads to a greater sensitivity to get a full body experience. The process of gaining awareness involves getting in touch with it so that it allows us to differentiate its multiple registers and live them in an integrated way.
Yoga, meditation and somatic movement (Body-Mind Centering®) will accompany us on this journey. The intention is to recognize the path between impulse and action; when consciousness gains space between these two, the necessary pause is generated to make decisions from a place in cohesion with your essence.
In this retreat we want to offer an individual and collective space, of experimentation and self-knowledge. Without pretensions or dogmatism. In an isolated natural environment, an offer of activities all optional and a vegetarian diet (vegan optional) for you to experience active calm and quiet action.
The activities will be directed by:
Jonatan González. Professor of Hatha Vinyasa in Synchrony since March 2017 He has an integral perspective of yoga, attending to the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual aspects of the practice. He combines the aligned and dynamic work of Hatha Vinyasa, with the more therapeutic perspectives of TCI, the philosophy of yoga and the anatomical knowledge of Chiropractic.
Nina Piulats Finger. She is a facilitator and collaborator of courses and projects of Contemporary Dance, Somatic Movement and Contact Improvisation since 2010. Hatha Vinyasa Yoga teacher since 2017, manual therapist and somatic movement educator at Body-Mind Centering®.

Yoga Retreat “Return to the Senses”
From 29 November to 1 December
In Canet de Fals
(210€ if you pay before 10/11)
Sometimes in yoga classes we focus only on the correct performance of the asanas instead of feeling and living in a practice that helps us gain consciousness. This raises questions such as: What should I feel? Should I stop or go on? Where do I put my attention? We wait for external validation instead of relying on our internal experience.
We are in a society overwhelmed by the noise of constant external stimuli, our senses are overwhelmed. If we can rediscover the capacity of each sense, take possession of its potential again, we will be able to discern what is important and what we can do without in each moment. To go from being a distraction to living them with conscience, to open ourselves to our senses so that they give us support and at the same time we do not depend on them.
In this retreat we want to focus on exploring with and from the senses in order to know and respect the “times of the body”. With the intention of fine-tuning the internal perception and the external space, this leads us to an experience strengthened in our own feeling and from which emanates a confidence in our own action. A disinterested, fully felt action is what allows us to transform our practice into a space of self-knowledge.
We will use yoga, meditation and somatic movement to isolate ourselves from external stimuli or on the contrary live fully the information that each sense gives us. This will allow us to sharpen the perception of body sensations and help to discern between what I perceive, what I feel and what really happens.
The intention of this retreat is that everyone finds their own individual space and at the same time generates a shared place of debate and experimentation. Without pretensions or dogmatism. It is only an offer where all the activities are optional and above all so that you have time for yourself, to feel yourself.
We will be in an isolated farmhouse in a natural environment where we will have vegetarian food (or vegan on request). The activities will be led by:
