SUMMER 2024 RETREAT IN COSTA BRAVA
Immersed in the stunning landscape of this charming coastal region, we will take a Deep Dive into our practice, reconnect with ourselves, spend time in majestic nature and cultivate old and new friendships.
THE RETREAT LOCATION
Situated in the picturesque bay of Aiguablava, 1.5 km away from the medieval town of Begur, this gorgeous contemporary eco-villa could not be better placed.
Atop a pine-clad hill and surrounded by a beautiful Mediterranean garden, the villa overlooks gorgeous crystalline water coves and sandy beaches at short walking distance.
The garden, curated just as carefully as the living quarters, with lavender, rosemary, olive trees and ornamental grasses, offers the perfect Mediterranean vibe with its unique fragrances and colours, ideal to enjoy an early summer outdoor lifestyle.
You can choose to lounge by the saltwater pool, nap under the shade of the pine trees, lie in a hammock or relax on the sofa under the pergola.
In the refreshing sea breeze and pleasant scent of Mediterranean plants you will leave behind the hustles of everyday life and take a deep dive into stillness and beauty.
THE YOGA PROGRAM
The intention for this yoga retreat is to cultivate a nurturing daily self-practice, one you can keep fostering after your time at the retreat.
The yoga practice will be led by Oz and will include guided and silent meditation, pranayama and asana practice, dyads and journaling.
In the safe and open environment of the retreat, you will be guided into the deeper levels of your personal growth practice and you will be given practical tools to explore your inner workings. Expect to access a deep understanding of your own emotions and mental patterns and to gain strength and stamina in your asana practice.
Mid-week we will observe a day of silence. Silence is a precious realm where the absence of spoken interaction allows for our thoughts to settle, gifting us with powerful insights and extra clarity. If you’ve never been truly silent for a whole day before, don’t worry, Oz will be present and holding space anytime you’re in need.
In addition to the daily yoga practice our wonderful Lisa will graciously offer her sizzling hot and fun daily work-out drills to which you’re welcome and invited to join.
The yoga Shala is a spacious and beautiful room built according to the principles of eco-architecture. Flooded with natural shaded light and enjoying a stunning open sea view, the Shala is a bubble of peace ideal for you to mentally and physically let go and delve into your practice under Oz’s loving guidance
fun & EXPERIENCES
Outdoors, water, nature and culture are at the heart of this region and we will make sure you get a taste of all these elements during our Deep Dive retreat.
We will take you on two excursions during the week. We are currently working on the final program but rest assured, it will make you WOW!
The Begur coast enjoys a shoreline of unparalleled beauty, with its cliffs, pines and crystal clear waters. Right on the Aiguablava beach (10min walking from the villa), you can rent kayaks, SUPs and pedal-boats to explore the nearby coves and caves.
A short 30min walk will take you to the historical centre of Begur, an old hamlet that has kept its numerous colonial-style houses, charming streets and alleys, testament to a long history in which pirates, sailors, coral gatherers, fishermen and wealthy emigrants returned from overseas.
If you like hiking, there are a number of walking trails starting directly from the villa that are perfect to enjoy the forest or the coastline with amazing views over the cliffs and coves.
Catalunia is also the region of Salvador Dali and home to the Salvador Dali Route, probably the best way to discover the great work of the iconic artist. In Figueras, you will find the Dali museum, and in Port lligat, a small town close to Cadaques, you can visit his home.
This year we decided to take a different approach to food and we will offer a mostly plant based menu throughout the week. At breakfast we will serve eggs and cheese, while lunch and dinner will be almost entirely plant based.
One evening we will take you to a traditional fish restaurant to have a taste of the authentic local cuisine.
In a way or another, one thing we know for sure: it’ll be delicious!
