Group Yoga Sessions

A group yoga session usually constitutes 10 to 15 people.

The yoga sessions last about 1 hour and 30 minutes; comprise of pranayama (breathing exercises), asana (postures), Dhyana (meditation) and yoga nidra (relaxation); and can be planned twice or thrice during the event. There will be an introduction to Yoga by the Instructor where you will learn about the physical and emotional self-healing the yogic method encompasses as it enables the rediscovery of the natural state of harmony.

Yin Yoga is a simple and slow-paced practice that acts on the deep connective tissue of the body. At the same time, it helps to improve the movement capacity of the joints, to stimulate the energy flow of the meridians and organs, to calm emotions, and to prepare the body and the mind for deep states of meditation.

By holding each asana for a few minutes and maintaining a deep and conscious breathing, slowly the muscles begin to relax, allowing the deep connective tissue that wraps the muscles and give shape to the articular capsules (fascia, ligaments, tendons and bones) to feed, fortify and "stretch" in a safe and therapeutic way.

The Yin practice focuses on self-observation and listening. When we assume a posture that follows our natural alignment, we let go of all distractions and preconceived notions and we bring our attention to the present moment in a unique way, with intention and without judgement; thus developing the ability to feel movement in the absence of movement, to perceive the sensations of the body or the emotions that emerge, and to feel our breath, with our mind and heart.

For three days we will pamper our body with two practices a day: in the morning a sequence of yoga in movement (sun salutation and Dragon Fly) with which we will activate, and pranayama (practices of deep breathing); and at sunset a Yin yoga sequence, which in addition to working deeply on our connective tissues, will relax our mind through the small meditations performed during the practice that will help us to better focus our intentions or sankalpa.

Once the practice is over there will be time to enjoy the wonderful spa that the structure offers and enjoy complete relaxation before dinner.
