Return to Yourself and Rejuvenate Your Soul

Are you yearning for some time to rejuvenate your soul while being surrounded by the beautiful and nourishing Sierra Nevada mountain range of Granada, Spain?
Would you like to cultivate vitality in the body, stillness in the mind and nourishment for the soul?
During Return to Yourself and Rejuvenate Your Soul you’ll drop into a slower pace of life, restoring your mind, body and soul. You’ll cultivate a deeper relationship with your embodied wisdom through transformational practices of meditation, reflection and yin yoga.

You’ll participate in:
• Artfully designed yoga practices to restore your body
• Guided meditations to cultivate a mindful and meditative state of presence
• Mind-body workshops
• Rejuvenation time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Granada
• Transformational practices of self-inquiry to promote soul-full healing and nourishment for your heart.

Discover the art, science, and ritual of living yoga everyday to help you thrive in your modern lifestyle with greater authenticity, vitality, and joy.

The Art of Yin Yoga: Yin yoga is a slow, yet powerful practice that targets the yin tissues of the body (fascia, bones, ligaments & joints), and supports overall wellness and balance. As an integrative practice, yin naturally lends itself to mindful and meditative states of mind, which can lead to full-bodied awareness and soul-full transformation.

The Science of Mind-Body Psychology: The science of psychology offers you an integrative approach to relating to yourself with compassionate curiosity and provides a loving channel for transformational living and deeper inner fulfillment.

The Ritual of Living Yoga Everyday: Rituals are part of everyday life and often include habits of daily living that support structure, nourishment and balance. When the practices of yoga are offered as rituals for daily living, your life becomes a prayer and everyday is an opportunity for tuning into the deeper messages of your soul to rejuvenate, to heal and to transform.

Return to Yourself and Rejuvenate Your Soul is an extraordinary opportunity to explore the vibrant culture of Spain while restoring your body, calming your mind and answering the call of what your heart longs for the most.

Remember, the goal is not to tie ourselves in knots—we're already tied in knots. The aim [of yoga] is to untie the knots in our heart. The aim is to unite with the ultimate, loving, and peaceful power of the universe and fully awaken into the highest level of human consciousness. ~ Max Strom
