Yin Yoga & Meditation Spring Retreat Lanzarote

 

Rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit on our Yin Yoga and Meditation Retreat.

Dates: 27th February to 5th March 2020, in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote.

 

If you love Sunshine, Yin Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness then this holiday is for you!

Your stay here will be in at the beautiful  4*Mirador Papagayo Hotel overlooking the ocean with views of the famous Papagayo beaches, Fuerteventura, Lobos and the beautiful beaches of the south of Lanzarote. You may choose to delight yourself by bathing in the very distinctive ‘wind rose’ pool while admiring the Atlantic Ocean or relax in the hammocks or even doze on the comfy Balinesse beds. There is a good gym at your disposal or you might just love to  stroll along the sea side promenade.

Our private retreat location is at the mountain top retreat centre just minutes away with breath taking views over the coastline and neighbouring island of Fuerteventura.

More about Yin Yoga

Yin is a lovely slow meditative and grounding yoga practice where ones mind is encouraged to be fully present in the body. With Yin, you are your bodies teacher and guide. You are the one who lovingly eases slowly and gently into and out of each pose, focusing on what you are experiencing. This style of yoga is suited to any level from a complete beginner to someone who practices yoga often. It is very different to the regular styles of yoga, which are more yang based.  You do not have to be at a certain level of fitness to perform this yoga. Carolyn will guide you through these meditative postures while educating you on the 3 principles of Yin.

 Most of the poses in yin are held from 3 to 5 minutes and are performed seated or laying on the floor. There are many modifications for each pose so they can be adapted to suit your needs.

Yin yoga aids healing on three levels:

  • On the physical level it helps joints, bones and the deeper fascia tissue to ease out stress and strengthen joints.
  • On the energetic level Yin restores harmony to our meridian/qi system promoting good health.
  • On our emotional and mental level it cultivates inner stillness calming anxiety and our reactivity.

If you have any medical issues or injuries do ask your doctors permission if it is ok to participate in yoga and if there are any movements to avoid and ones that are encouraged.

Yin Yoga and Meditation go hand in hand and you will enjoy learning some different techniques in meditation including a Yin style of meditation that takes away all the bells and whistles of regular meditation teachings so it is a more straight forward and simpler technique that works for everyone, especially for those people who say I can’t meditate!

On this restorative retreat you can look forward to having time for you! You will have time to sleep and time to relax. Time is an important component of this retreat.

After enjoying a delicious breakfast and maybe a walk along by the sea front, you will be collected at 10am and brought up to our mountain yoga retreat just minutes away. Here we practice our Yoga and Meditation both inside in our beautiful retreat space and outside in the sunshine.  You have the afternoons to enjoy the hotel spa, pools and nearby beaches or potter and shop in the quaint little sea side town of Playa Blanca.

You will enjoy an excursion on one of the afternoons and you will have one full day to do whatever you like.

The group meet for dinner every evening and there is entertainment and music at the hotel to enjoy.
