Description

This retreat offers you a mix of dynamic yoga sessions that will increase alignment and body awareness and restorative practices to unwind your body and mind and deepen your inner focus.

Healthy exercise

An active daily routine with morning and evening yoga sessions to unwind your body and mind and other optional outdoor activities to enjoy yourself and the landscape.

Healthy weather

We can´t 100% guarantee that the sun will shine, but, come on, we are talking about the end of May at the sunniest coast in Europe. Don´t forget to bring your sunscreen.

Healthy food

Great vegetarian dishes cooked with love and the best local and organic ingredients to give your body a healthy boost.

Why focus?

Attention, in all its varieties, has a very powerful influence on the way we feel and the way we move through life.

The internal focus helps us connect with our intuitions and values that guide us, favoring the process of decision making; the external focus helps us navigate the world around us; and focus on others improves our social life.

Modern society however, does not facilitate the cultivation of attention.

The speeded-up, highly complex society we live in, where we have a non-stop stream of distractions coming in through our smartphones and laptops feeds our so-called monkey mind, with very short attention spans and scattered thoughts.

The good news is: you can train your brain! (and your body while you are at it :)

I invite you to step into the miraculous world that is your body and mind, become close, and start refining your inner focus.

What they say about focus

It was a beautiful experience for mi and now, back at my routine, I feel a great calm inside. We all need to disconnect doing something like this from time to time.

Suzanne Hoyos

The first thing I did when I came back home was preparing a quiet room for my own yoga practice and buying a yoga mat! I had to admit; I was hooked.
