Program

The classes of Ibiza yoga retreat by Lena Tancredi are based on Hatha, Yin and Yang Yoga. There are between four or five hour daily classes during the week (theory, asana, pranayama, and meditation classes). Some of the classes are more physical and vigorous and some are more recuperative and relaxing.

All classes are optional. After all, this is a holiday, not a boot camp! It is fine if you decide to sleep or spend more time on the beach in the afternoon. A big part of yoga is listening to your body's needs and a holiday is also about rest and recharging. All yoga classes are held in English. The yoga program includes 6 hours of theory divided into 4 parts during the week:

First Theory class (1.5-hour)

During this session, you will receive important and inspiring information about the yoga philosophy allowing you to understand in a very simple and deeper way different aspects about the origin, types, and goals of yoga. You will learn about Vedanta Philosophy, the three Gunas, the four paths of Yoga, and the 8 limbs of Raja Yoga.

Second Theory class (1.5-hour)

You will learn about the chakras, the etheric body and how yoga benefits not only your physical body but also your energetic body. The connections between the Chakras and your glandular system and the importance of bringing your practice to a deeper pranic level.

Third Theory class (2-hour)

You will learn about Ayurveda principles based on a correct diet and healthy lifestyle. During this class, you will receive many important tips about food combinations and personal diet according to your nature and your Dosha ( personal physical and mental constitution).

Fourth Theory class (1-hour)

You will learn about the philosophy behind the use of sound and vibrations, frequencies and resonance to heal the physical, mental, and emotional bodies.

Asana and pranayama sessions

2 Morning sessions of 3 hours each, where you will learn the complete traditional Hatha Yoga Sivananda system which includes sun salutations, 2 different kinds of pranayamas ( breathing techniques), 12 basis asanas (steady poses), and final relaxation. The 3-hour session will allow you to receive important and specific information about the correct performance and alignment of the asanas.

3 Morning sessions of 3 hours each, where you will learn the practice of Yin Yang Yoga, which blends two styles of yoga into one practice. Bringing together the benefits of passively holding yoga poses with more dynamic sequences and standing postures.

Yin and Yang are the Taoist concepts which describe the two relative qualities present in everything. Yin is more internal, passive, cooling and downward. While Yang is more external, dynamic, warming and upward.

2 Afternoon sessions (1 and half hour) of Yin Yoga, which is a slower practice where poses are passively held for longer, working on the deep, dense (Yin) connective tissues, and joints in the body.

1 Sound Bath session (3-hour)

Sound baths are meant to help facilitate a shift in your brainwave state. Through frequency and entrainment with the sound, it’s possible and very easy to down-shift our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness), with the majority of people able to reach theta (meditative state) and even delta (where internal healing can occur).

This experience is helpful for anyone who wants to give themselves a moment of relaxation or gain the benefits from meditation but has not yet learned how to access on their own.

For beginners, meditation requires a verbally guided experience, i.e- go to a quiet place and find a stream or repeat a mantra. The sound bath experience is about letting the sound take you to a deeper place making it easier to arrive in a relaxed state without complicating how to get there. The sound is the vessel and it allows you to explore and identify what a meditative state is and how it feels.

Because of this, a sound bath is not only beneficial for beginners of meditation, a seasoned meditator will find as many benefits. The sounds are created by a wide range of instruments (about 150 instruments) with different frequencies which can include pulse drumming, Biosonic tuning forks, gongs, Shruti box, Himalayan singing bowl, mbiru, various percussion, chimes, overtone singing, Indian, Latin, and aborigines flutes, Coto Japanese , hand arp, etc.

Guided Meditations

Each yoga session will finish with 30 minutes of guided meditation. Every time you will learn a different technique so that you can have a better vision about the form of meditation which could be more suitable to your nature. You can see below a summary about what you will learn during this week:

Yoga sessions:

  • Asanas (steady poses)
  • Pranayama (control of prana through breathing)
  • Mudras (gestures)
  • Bandhas (to lock and redirect the prana flow)
  • Kryas (purification techniques)
  • Dhyana (meditation techniques)
  • Mantras (chants and prayers)
  • Nidra Yoga (state of total relaxation)
