Summer Solstice Retreat
22 June – 29 June
We are so happy to be returning to Mandala de Masca in the beautiful mountains of Tenerife this summer for a birthday and summer solstice celebration.
Celebrate friendship, yoga and summer
Leah and Alison are both born in the month of June and share not only their sun sign but a passion for teaching yoga and enjoying the simple pleasures of life.
These two cancerian friends and experienced yoga teachers have set up a yoga retreat program around the celebration of Summer Solstice 2020. We are offering a full programme of yoga practice to nourish you on every level. We will be enjoying an intensive week of yoga to deepen your practice and to create new habits that are the founding for a healthy yoga-based lifestyle.
The varied daily programme will combine pranayama and meditation, twice daily yoga sessions, chanting mantras, healthy vegan food, hiking as well as time for relaxation and massage
Why go on a yoga retreat?
Leah and Alison believe that going on retreat each year and taking time out from the busyness of our everyday lives is the key to vitality. Quality time is to be close to nature, time to reflect, breathe, move and nourish ourselves. This is essential not just for people committed to a yoga as a way of life but it is important for everybody.
Whether you are, an experienced yoga practitioner or someone who wants to learn the yoga fundamentals, we are sure that you will feel the positive energy flowing again by the end of the retreat week.
Situated in the beautiful setting of mountainous of North Tenerife, we will together create a healing space for recharging and relaxing in the sun and celebrating life.
What to expect
We will guide you in a varied and full daily yoga program starting with pranayama and silent meditation to greet the morning sun followed by a dynamic yoga flow to enliven your body and spirit. In the afternoon session you will experience the healing benefits of Yin and Restorative yoga combined with mindfulness for deep healing. We will end each day with mantra singing, yoga nidra, a silent walk or star gazing.
