Monte da Orada
The retreat of your dreams comes near!
✨Save the date!✨
Southern Portugal is an ideal place to search for and find your true self under the warm sun, near the ocean.
April is the perfect time for this. We already crave the sun then, but it is still only available in such magical places like Orada.
Ecological farms are wonderful destinations for practicing yoga and meditation in harmony with oneself and Mother Earth.
Therefore, we would like to invite you to a week-long seminar “Shape meets Color”. We will combine structured yoga practice that provides you with strength, self-confidence, activity, and power with soft practices such as singing mantras and meditation, which reveal your creative potential and find what really gives you the joy of life!
Enjoy the web version here:
The workshops will be led mainly in English. We can also communicate in other languages: PL, RU, PT, ES.
The difficulty level of the seminar is basic, but deep work with breathing, attention, and voice will make it interesting for experienced practitioners as well.
In addition, we plan to visit several interesting places in Southern Portugal. The eco-settlement of Tamera is one of the oldest, largest and most successful eco-settlements in the world..Magical Portuguese beaches with steep cliffs above them, and several other places will allow you to feel the real authentic spirit of this hospitable land.
April 2-9, 2020
✨What will you gain from this?✨
✅ Daily practice that will help you recover in a short amount of time and make you feel as if you were on vacation for a month. There are asanas, pranayama, and meditation. Also, the techniques of super-deep relaxation, dissolution of stress accumulated at the level of the body and subconscious, and eradication of negative emotions and ineffective movement patterns and programs. These practices will eliminate everything that prevents us from being healthy and happy. We will help you to truly become yourselves. The techniques we use are based not only on traditional yoga, but also on other modern and ancient methods of holistic work: meditation, psychophysiology, Hanna somatics, TRE and others. In this case, practice brings a much more tangible, deep and lasting positive effect.
✅ Evenings that will be devoted to a deeper form of meditation and the chanting of mantras, which is a highly effective tool used for spiritual development, a type of medicine for the soul. When we choose a syllable, word, or even sentence to repeat in the form of a mantra, we affirm its meaning and let it change us on a deep, subconscious level.
Each sound carries a particular frequency that affects a specific part of the brain and the whole body. With the help of mantras, meditation, and appropriate sounds, we can influence our lives and release previously unknown potentials. Chanting mantras does not require vocal skills, but it does require silence and acceptance of ourselves, as well as a place like Orada that will definitely inspire us to open up and discover the vibrations of sounds.
✅ Special exercises for a deeper balance and the purification of our main energy channels and energies that determine the functioning of the body and our human consciousness. Thanks to this, you will have the opportunity to receive effective tools for solving your current life tasks: an increase in vitality and health, the elimination of physical and emotional stress, and the ability to form a new meaning in life.
✅ In addition to the evening mantras, Paulina will play a concert connected to the Cacao Ceremony.
Cacao is a subtle and powerful plant that has been used in ceremonies for thousands of years in South and Central America. It helps us open our hearts, giving us a deeper connection with its essence and with ourselves so that we can be free from anything holding us back. It heals, strengthens, gives us clarity and creates a space of freedom that stimulates expression and creativity in ourselves.
Cacao has 40 times more antioxidants than acai berries and has the highest iron content of other known plants. It’s full of magnesium for a healthy heart and brain, and it has more calcium than cow’s milk. Cacao is a natural antidepressant and it increases the secretion of our happiness hormone.
✅ High-quality body cleansing. Balance classes, a healthy nutritious diet and energy techniques. The clean, natural environment, as well as the sun and the sea, will help get rid of a huge burden of worries, sorrows, toxins, and extra pounds.
✅ Comfortable living in the ecological economy ORADA, an extraordinary sanctuary of harmony, peace, tranquility, and wonderful nature. With its energy, it is like a balm for our soul, which will help calm our mind, relax, get some air, and regenerate.
🌿 PAULINA 🌿
Paulina Violina is a yogi, traveler, and violinist who has found the power of transformation, balance and spiritual growth in music. Her many years of experience as an aerial yoga teacher combined with deep sensitivity to music as a form of soul therapy allowed her to take part in many great music projects in Europe and Brazil. This included various types of yoga festivals, development workshops and spiritual ceremonies with various great shamans, healers, and artists from around the world.
Her concerts and songs are strongly focused on our integration with ourselves, allowing us to feel both tears and joy; every emotion we need to feel to live fully. Her songs and music flow from the depths of her soul and heart, out of respect for nature, for Mother Earth.
You should check out her work!
🌿 PAVEL 🌿
Pavel has been engaged in yoga for 13 years and will be sharing his experiences during 5 classes throughout numerous excursions and yoga courses.
“In my work, I focus on specific, practical methods that help to remove bodily clamps, get rid of destructive motor patterns and work out the correct ones, and to connect disparate parts of a human being into a consistent whole. In order to achieve this I make use of classical hatha yoga, many breathing practices, somatic methods, methods of body-oriented psychotherapy and coaching.
I spend my time studying yoga and meditation, and I sympathize with the Buddhist view of life as I make attempts to theorize less and practice more.
My family and I live in the beautiful city of Wroclaw, in Poland, where we run our Studio “The Tree of Life”, in which I conduct regular classes called “Yoga and body awareness”. In my free time I do some swimming, using the Total Immersion system.”
Every day we will begin with Pavel, leading 3 hours of yoga practice.
During the day we will communicate and visit interesting places in the district like the stunning Portuguese beaches, of which Odeceixe is the prime example.
For those who are interested – we will be organizing an excursion to the eco-settlement “Tamera”.
We will also be having a few outings to the small towns around the area where you will feel completely immersed in the local culture
In the evenings we will be having practice with Paulina – sometimes it will consist of meditation, other times we will be singing mantras as well as hearing a lot of wonderful music from Paulina herself.
