We are stardust made from the Elements and the more we learn to connect and use these qualities the more we master our power and our potential to be creators of our world.
Through a playful approach, this retreat is an Acroyoga intensive but also a journey through the elements where we will guide you on this adventure of movement as well as connecting to the raw beauty and magic of Ibiza.
WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT?
A dose of inspiration and an experience of the senses that is aimed to those that would like to take their practice to the next level.
Our week is full packed and well balanced between physical and therapeutic practices. We support you to strengthen your body vocabulary and awaken your conceptual curiosity of movement in a playful approach through connection and expression.
In terms of activity:
* We will focus our attention on yoga as a research axis to bring you into a deeper understanding of your own yogic path, offering tools to awaken your body sensitivity and discover new spaces within.
* We will dive into developing your Acroyoga skills, learning strong foundations, build strength, reaching new heights and awakening this playground of sharing and creating together.
* Thai massage as a practice that cultivates nurturing touch, loving kindness and sharing.
* Somatic practices in nature opens new doors of perception and the senses.
