Art and Yoga Retreat

Andalusia, Spain | 22nd - 26th March 2017


Yoga will open up your mind/body/spirit to the possibilities; the brush will take you the rest of the way. 

Advaya Initiative invites you to Finca La Herradura, in beautiful Southern Spain for five days of Vinyassa Krama Yoga and Gentle Art Healing, taught and assisted by Christabel Reed and Laura Fraser.  

This yoga retreat will provide you with the space and support to unwind, de-stress and begin or evolve your yoga practice. The retreat is open to both beginners and those already with a regular practice. Five days of delicious food, environment and kindness. A chance to shake of the winter cobwebs and prepare for summer shinning.

The days together will go deep and we hope will leave you with a better sense of connection to earth and to yourselves.  There will be one morning and early evening yoga practice each day and one ever changing/evolving art class. The yoga classes, led by Christabel, will involve asana (postures), pranayama (breath work), chanting and meditation. Classes will be on beautiful wooden yoga platform inside lavender plantation, facing the river, a stunning spot for connection.  

Laura's art classes will vary and are based on Japanese philosophy Dzwabi sabidz - Too see the beauty in imperfection. Outsider artist herself she believes in no rules, no lessons, art is a time to let go and express, the class isn't about making pretty pictures, its about honing in on feelings and using your body and hands as tools to release and transcend. The classes are all organic materials and will be group and solo based, from printings with plants to group shrine building. The class will be fun, uplifting and profound. Healing doesn't have to be hard. It can be fun too!

Vegetarian locally produced breakfast, lunch and dinner will be cooked and prepared for you. In between yoga and art healing you will have the opportunity to relax in the beautiful river bed, go for walks in the farm which is full of orange, pomegranateand olive groves. Take a swim in the salt water pool or stroll down to the glacier water river.
