5-Day Retreat

LEARN A POWERFUL CLEANSING ROUTINE FOR BODY AND MIND THROUGH ANCIENT TECHNIQUES OF MEDITATION, PHYSICAL EXERCISE AND THE CULTURE OF MOVEMENT

UPCOMING DATES:
From December 26 to 30, 2021
From April 13 to 17, 2022
From July 6 to 10, 2022

If you are near the Costa Rican Central Valley on the dates indicated above, we invite you to spend five days of meditation and intelligent physical exercise here at the farm.

We open the space to share ancient meditation techniques along with ancient yoga exercise routines, in order to purify the physical and mental energy centers.

There will also be physical, meditative and respiratory exercise routines in the pool.

During your free time you can leave the farm or stay within the premises reviewing all the material that we will gradually practice.

As always, we keep the quota open to a maximum of 10 people to guarantee the correct evolution of each participant, providing individual follow-up both in practicum and theoretical aspects.

Therefore, unlike our usual meditation retreats, in this one the idea is to create spaces for dialogue (group and individual) around the physical and meditative practices of the program, which makes the experience a kind of 1:1 mentoring with each person.

SUMMARY

– Intensive practice of ancestral meditation techniques and physical exercises from the ancient yoga culture.

– Exercise, meditation and breathing routines (in the water)

– Talks about all the techniques to practice.

– Personalized 1:1 mentoring with each participant.

– You can leave the farm in your free time, or stay within the premises practicing the program’s techniques on your own.

1: 1 MENTORING

Spaces for each participant, in private, to receive recommendations regarding their performance during the practices.

These recommendations will revolve around the objectives that each person seeks to achieve through the practice of meditation and physical exercise, and will be based on the observation, by the instructor, of the body language (often unconscious) of the participants. This is undoubtedly one of the strongest pillars in this retreat.

ACCOMMODATION

We have double and single rooms, each with its own bathroom. It is important to say that part of our health proposal includes cold water baths, so there is no hot water in any of the showers on the farm.

MEALS

The retreat does not include meals. People should bring their own food (or go out to eat during free time)

However, we do have shared kitchens equipped with the basics for those who wish to prepare their own food. Each kitchen has a refrigerator, gas stove, basic utensils, cans of water, oil, salt, sugar, pepper – we DO NOT use microwave.

We appreciate bringing simple food to prepare so as not to spend a lot of time in the kitchen or digestion. A light digestion will be crucial for the proper development of the physical and meditative dynamics of the retreat.

Although it is allowed to bring meats, dairy and gluten, we recommend attendees an intake of light food for a better result of the retreat activities. A smooth digestion is ideal for long periods of meditation.
