Yin Yoga Retreat Mallorca

Yin Yoga Retreat Mallorca

In the mood for a Yin Yoga Retreat on Mallorca with Marianne de Kuyper and Breathspiration? Sign up now. Join Marianne at a more than wonderful location on a gorgeous Spanish Island and allow yourself to slow down by following at least 7 Yin Yoga classes during your five day retreat.

 

Yin Yoga class

During the Yoga Retreat’s Yoga classes you will focus on reconnecting with your body by applying the tool of Yin Yoga. Marianne will guide you through moments of sitting still whilst doing breathing exercises. These exercises will flow into a Yin Yoga class in which you hold poses for longer periods of time, so that each pose becomes a mini-mediation.

 

Slow down

If needed, Marianne will add Restorative Yoga poses to make the practice even more beneficial. The effect will be that, apart from improving your range of motion and flexibility, that you will slow down and that you will feel rested, calm and soothed after each practice.

 

Guided Self-Inquiry Meditations

You can book additional activities with Marianne like Private Yoga sessions, Meditation sessions, Breathing sessions and Guided Self-Inquiry Meditations. During the Self-Inquiry Meditation you will be guided through 8 steps and you will find your own answers to a situation you would like to work with.
