Begin where you are!
Prior experience with Yoga, Meditation and Mindful Eating isn’t necessary. This retreat is appropriate for all levels of yoga practitioners – from those who are early in their practice of yoga to those with an experienced practice. Together we will explore acceptance and learn to trust the process!
Our experienced Facilitators will guide you through a life-changing experience as you explore and transform your relationship with food, physical activity, and self-care.
Every day you will benefit from three yoga classes from Monday to Thursday (Pranayama class, Hatha class in the morning and Restorative/Yin yoga classes in the early evening). On Friday morning you will have Pranayama class and Hatha class. All the classes are specially designed to support the elimination of toxins and to help you to feel deeply relaxed.
Meditation and Mindful Eating classes
Every day from Monday to Thursday you will benefit from two meditation classes (mindfulness and mindful eating). At CASARA WAY (Wellness And Yoga) we offer a variety of meditation classes designed to help students become more mindful, connected and self-aware. They are aimed at both beginners and experienced students. We will explore informal and formal mindfulness practices focusing on the breath, thoughts and emotions, meditations of loving kindness and self-compassion, as well as other practices designed to deepen your connection to your body, breath and heart. The classes are designed to increase awareness, ultimately strengthening the relationship we have with ourselves and with others.
For your five-day retreat you will benefit from a specially designed menu of healthy and delicious homemade whole foods.
We use organic fruit and vegetables, so our guests will not ingest the pesticides, herbicides and antibiotic residues that the body is trying to clear out.
