ASHTANGA YOGA AND AVATAR RETREAT WITH LUIS FERNÀNDEZ

About This Event

Regenerate, reconnect, and expand your conscience in this fabulous retreat in Salento

UNCONVENTIONAL WELLNESS

Event Highlights

  • The retreat offers meditation sessions and Satsang, yoga study, mantra and asana practices suitable for beginners and advanced students with classes of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga (Mysore style & led class) and Yoga Avatar (the latter designed in our school) , with two daily practices divided in the morning at 7:00 and evening at 18:00.
  • Avatar is a Sanskrit term that means descent – divine incarnation. When the world is in difficulty and dispersion and chaos reign, there comes a transcendent being, a divine messenger with the aim of restoring and recovering the order and the divine law (dharma). There have been many avatars and many can still be incarnated.
  • Yoga was born in our school with the idea of ​​creating an order and taking up the authentic values ​​of yoga such as community, respect for tradition, devotion and direct experience of practice.
  • In Avatar we put our commitment to learn how to manage our practice of posture, breathing, relaxation (asana, pranayama, yoganidra) with the purpose of self observing us.
  • In the intimate self-observation we understand better ourselves, others and the world and we can achieve a radical transformation.
  • Avatar is a central system in movement, alignment and body knowledge, strength and flexibility. Come to the Ashtanga yoga the purpose of the Avatar is to stimulate the student to learn postures, or sequences of posture, conscious breathing, and the various techniques that are able to self-manage his practice. In the same way as the others, he was oriented to: free the mind from stress, relax, tone and correct the imbalances of the body with a correct posture.

Venue Highlights

Agricola Samadhi is much more than a farm, it is a journey in the journey, an existential, multi-sensorial, energizing and relaxing experience. It is at the same time a proposal and practice of a lifestyle in which the priority is re-finding itself, doing good, sharing with others, experimenting with the practices of yoga and other techniques the lost connection between the body, the mind and the Heart.
What is proposed and experimented at Agricola Samadhi is the energetic recharge and psychophysical wellbeing, through a path of knowledge, the rediscovery of the body and its potential and through a diet that purifies, lightens and strengthens.

Energy recharge and psychophysical wellness will be the most precious gifts that you will bring back home with your suitcases and new friendships that always arise during the stays.

Accommodations

ECO LIVING We fight for the safety of the Planet. We are the planet, if we hurt it, we hurt ourselves.
We promote eco-sustainability and an eco-friendly lifestyle. We have installed a photovoltaic field for self-produced energy. No action, not even the smallest, (turn off the light, open or close a tap, buy or not a plastic bag at the supermarket) it is neutral, but it has an effect and this must be done consciously.
We privilege the purchase and the use of natural disposable and materials, whose origin and creation is traceable, respecting the worker and the environment. We have a zero impact target to minimize energy consumption and waste production (water, electricity, purchases …). We also recycle in a creative way all that we can, we differentiate waste. Organic waste becomes compost, compost fertilizer for our vegetable garden and orchard, strictly organic.
We support Greenpeace and all those local realities that have our same goals.
The structure was renovated in 2011 and it was designed in the name of eco-sustainable tourism, choosing to install the automatic turning off of lights at the exit of the room and using low-energy light bulbs to pursue an energy-saving policy. We invite our guests to a conscious and careful use of water and energy to avoid waste, we work in the separate collection of waste and we offer alternative solutions to private transport for pleasure visits, collaborating with local associations we share values and purposes with, such as Salento Slow Travel.

Menu/Cuisine

“Good” is a ROUND word. When a child says, “it’s GOOD,” he tells of a world untouched, pure, essential.
“You’re good,” means: “I can trust, I feel safe.” This is true for humans, but also for nourishment.
A child is master of the essential innate ideas. Adults need to relearn to feel, to savor the taste of food connected to the taste of life.
You Are Here, and on this table you receive the privilege of that ‘good’ that has the taste of childhood.
Close your eyes for a moment, while you perceive the food that from your mouth diffuses energy and pleasure in every part of you.
Organic, for what we produce, it is truth, not a definition of fashion: we cultivate without using herbicides or pesticides with an arduous daily work between the rows.
Grow for us means supporting and not interrupting the cycle of life.
This food walks only a few steps to get from the garden to our kitchen.
Yes, this food is Good, because it made with love, because it is good for your health and at the same time does not harm anyone; to get on your plate it does not exploit other creatures, did not generate suffering, and does not bring pain residues, but joy.
It is a harmonious food, whole, in harmony with creation, with Mother Earth.
This food is the present but also the future toward which to aim. The deep aspiration is that the philosophy of mindful eating, respecting all living beings will always expand more, generating virtuous circles.
Listen to this food, it talks emitting happy vibrations.
We do not choose the easy way out, we like the commitment.
We want a full life that tastes Good”.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
