Menorca Autumn Retreat

Location: Menorca, Spain
Instructor: Robin Tåg
About the retreat
”It is not a matter of abandoning the ego. It is more a willingness to release it, much like a butterfly metamorphosing from a caterpillar and being set free from its cocoon. When shifting from ego to soul, a journey of surrender means daring to open up and step forward into the mystery of life.” — Matt Kahn
Welcome to join this Yoga Experience in the Magical Island of Menorca. During one week we practice with the intension to explore how to truly Inhabit the Body and improve the Bodys Intelligence in Movement. To help us explore this we use the Virya Yoga Method and the different spectras of Somatic Meditation. At the same time, we explore Menorcas beauty and History through different Excursions around the Island, as well as the charm of Ciutadella de Menorca.
- Somatic Meditation as a tool to inhabit the Body and explore the Idea of how our Spiritual Essence is expressed within the Body.
- Improve your Intelligence in Movement and develop your full Movement Potential with explorative mindful movement.
- Improve Joint Mobility and Movement Control from a Sport Science-Based Approach. Main focus: Vrist and Ankle mobility, Scoulder Girdle coordination, Hip Control and Spine segmentation.
- Move with Integrity and coordinate the body as a unit.
- Embodied Spiritual Themes where we explore and attune to the different stages of Heartfelt Surrender based on Matt Kahns work.
During the week we will be staying at our home and life project Poblado Corazon located on the rural countryside just 2 km outside of Ciutadella de Menorca. The house has 5 bedrooms accommodating 10 people in total. Each room with its own bathroom. Around the house is a vast garden with lots of different elements, a variety of fruit trees and spots for relaxation including the house pool. The yoga shala is a separate building in the center of the garden. Ciutadella is only at 25 min walking distance or 10 min by bike.
