The Concept & The Practices
Give yourself space to replenish and sow the seeds of joy and love so you can fully bloom into your authentic self! We find ourselves energetic and inspired when we are truly connected to our deepest truths and heartfelt desires, when we align body, mind and heart. But sometimes the hectic pace of life for many of us these days leaves us caught up in our thoughts and feeling a little unsure what we really want in life, of our true north. Away from your daily routine, out in the beautiful natural landscape of Lajares, under the gentle sun, nourishing your body with twice daily yoga and heavenly home cooked food, take some space to breathe, and dream, and be unapologetically you...
Care for your body, rest your mind, uplift your soul!
Who is your teacher?
Sinziana has been leading yoga classes since 2014. She accomplished her first teacher training at the Yoga Loft Brussels and soon after she started exploring yin yoga, which opened a different chapter on the extraordinary journey of yoga discoveries. She's also a graduate of Sampoorna Yoga in Goa, India. Her invigorating sequences are led in a friendly, down to earth manner, and she has a humorous and joyful approach towards the limitations of the body and shortcomings of the mind. The Yin teaching is very dear to her, for its sweet and nurturing qualities; she introduced the practice to many yogis through workshops and regular classes. You can find more about classes and workshops she teaches on www.sinsanyoga.com
NOURISH YOUR BODY
We will practice in a very special place, a specifically yoga designated yurt – a cozy circular space with amazing magical energy. The yurt is sheltered in the garden, surrounded by nature, guarded by the stunning presence of the volcano. At the entrance there is a chill-out area were you can experience the peacefulness of the place before and after practice.
The week will blend different styles of yoga, alternating flowing active classes and relaxing sessions. Kundalini yoga, meditation and yoga nidra complete the program.
Daily after practice vegetarian brunch and dinner will be served during the retreat, so your body will be nourished with the best fresh organic produce prepared in creative ways, using combinations of various textures and cooking techniques.
The cuisine simple and... simply delicious! You will enjoy exquisite quality and unique taste, as the food you will taste is cooked with love and passion by your wonderful hosts Vanja and Bojan. You will taste that positive energy! Brunch consists of salads, free range eggs, freshly baked breads, fresh fruit, yogurt, amazing signature granola, honey and jam, juice and coffee or tea. In the evening vegetarian multi course meals with starters, main and dessert will enchant your taste buds. Each meal is different and each dish is an experience, you will discover amazing combinations and will go home with a collection of recipes to add to your repertoire. There is no alcohol served nor available for purchase on location during the week.
“Sinziana's retreats for me are an complete break from the real world. I feel such freedom out of them, like the rest of the world is just not... well there, and therefore none of the usual daily problems, worries, responsibilities .It's such a breath of fresh air to have as only 'constraints' the times for yoga practices and eating - my favourite things in the world :D”
“Sinziana's retreat was much much more spiritual with a focus on compassion, surrendering, wisdom, happiness, positive relationships, and so on. The amazing fine vegetarian and vegan cuisine of our hosts will be an inspiration in my daily cooking. The suite was a high quality accommodation, spacious, totally clean, with a luxurious bathroom. The retreat helped me to go deeper inside myself and really feel the present moment. I feel I progressed physically and mentally”
