Bell tents

Rustic Retreats beautifully furnished bell tents are simple yet sumptuous. With comfy beds and crisp, fresh linen, it’ll be a luxury glamping experience you’ll never forget! As you lay your head down, let the sweet scent of the nearby lemon and orange groves carry you off to sleep as you doze under the glorious, star-filled sky. A truly blissful way to end your day.

​Rest and relaxation

You’ll be spoiled for choice for ways to rest and relax. You could take a dip in our refreshing swimming pool, or lounge lazily in the hammock area while taking in the beautiful views. Why not pull up a sun lounger in the shaded terrace, and enjoy one of the many books or board games?

Program

Alongside meditation and breathwork the morning practice will be focused on Hatha yoga with a strong Ashtanga influence. A dynamic sequence that will be repeated and built upon during the week. Ashtanga is a set sequence of standing and seated postures which can be modified depending on the student’s level of practice and ability. The morning practice will be about breaking down the postures and movements to understand why you move in certain ways.

Incorporating a flow like motion into the evening practice. Synchronizing the breath with the movement allows you to move with a meditative state of mind. Threading the yoga philosophy into your energetic moving sequence to bring about a well-rounded Yoga practice. Encouraging inward focus through, postures and breathing techniques. Concluding each evening with stillness and quietness in order to discover the Divine elements within.

Your Rustic Retreats journey

Most cultures have a deep spiritual connection to the Elements, and yoga is no different. While each culture will vary in traditions and rituals to connect to the elements, a lot of the meaning will be the same.

Throughout the week you will acquaint yourself with the energy centers known as the Chakras and discover what connection they have to the elements. You will explore where more energy is needed in order to bring balance to your body, mind and spirit.

This will be done in your daily asana practice which will focus on the physical aspects of postures and breathwork, and then your workshops will allow you to discover how you can take yoga off the mat and into your daily life. The daily meditation practices will allow you the time and space to absorb all the lessons.

Your Workshop Program

Earth: Grounding with Gratitude

Grounding or Earthing refers to the practice of being barefoot or sitting on the ground, simply having direct physical contact with the vast supply of electrons on the surface of the Earth. This practice alone has major benefits such as better sleep and reduced pain and stiffness, circulation is also improved. Practicing Gratitude also improves your physical and emotional health.

Exploring all that the Sierra Espuna mountains have to offer, you will discover how to move slower and connect to the beauty of all the living beings and plants around you, reflecting on how we can treat our earth with more love and kindness

Water: Artistic Flow

You will be using art to connect to the creative side that is within you. Rustic Retreats will share techniques that will help allow that creative expression flow into the world. Art may come in the form of painting, dance, music, poetry. This workshop is not about trying to be “good” at art but it allows a safe non-judgmental space for us all to express through art how you feel or what you have experienced.

Fire: Fire & Freedom

You have emotions you hold onto that don't serve you in a positive way, fear, loss, anger, guilt etc. You will incorporate Tapas (burning of impurities) into a ceremony, that will help you to heal old wounds and to move on feeling lighter and more positive, freeing you of old unwanted patterns.

Air: Beautiful Breath

Breathing exercises are a powerful way of connecting with the vital life force or Prana that flows through you. You will also use mantras to connect with your breath, and to help raise your vibrational energy.

Ether/Space: Yoga Nidra

As you lie in Shavasana (corpse pose), you will be guided into a deep relaxation, in order to leave the physical sensations of the body and connect with yourself on a deeper spiritual level. Yoga Nidra will allow you to feel like you are soaring through space. Yoga Nidra is a deeply relaxing guided meditation, that brings the mind into a state of deep relaxation, floating somewhere in-between a state of sleep and conscious.
