Rejuvenating Yoga Retreat in Spain

Rejuvenating Yoga Retreat
2017 – Date????

Stella Shakerchi and Chris Leuenberger invite you to join them in their intensive yoga retreat held in the wonderful Andalusian hills of Spain. Enjoy relaxing yet focused daily yoga sessions that will fit your yoga needs. While on your leisure time, you can stroll along the beautiful sandy beach and maybe after dinner join mantra chanting to calm your mind. You will come home not only feeling inspired but also recharged!


During this retreat, you will have three daily yoga classes with Chris and Stella. Experience extensive sessions of Vinyasa yoga, pra-nayama, Kundalini yoga, Restorative yoga, and celestial communi-cation (mantras with extended mudras) in the evening. The week will follow through the chakras, so the first day will be root chakra and the last day, the crown chakra. Each class during the day will relate to that day’s chakra.

Typical Day Schedule

In this retreat, you will start your day with 90 minutes Vinyasa class and silent relaxation. After your morning yoga and relaxation
session, you will have your breakfast. Around midday, you will have a 60 minutes kundalini or dance based class and music relaxation, followed with lunch.
In the evening you will have another 90 minutes evening Vinyasa class with meditation or yoga Nidra.
After dinner, there will be 20 minutes of mantras with music and mudras.
