About This Event
Stella Shakerchi and Chris Leuenberger invite you to join them in their yoga & creativity retreat held at Sa Bassa & Sa Portassa, a beautiful Mallorcan style finca and eco estate located near Porreres, in the southeast of the the sunny island of Mallorca.
Enjoy relaxing yet focused daily yoga sessions that will fit your yoga needs. Surrender to the flow of your innate creative potential and try somatic dance and/or creative writing.
While on your leisure time you can go for a swim, play table tennis, badminton, relax, read, meditate, go for leisurely strolls in the 2000 m2 garden with native fauna (mostly birds), ponds and a native forest, go for longer walks and hikes in the area, explore the nearby beaches and maybe after dinner join mantra chanting to calm your mind.
You will go home inspired and recharged!
„Thank you again for leading such a wonderful week with Stella. It will stay with me for a long time. My body, mind and soul feel stronger and I also have some things to ponder following the chakra session. Thank you too for all the nice moments. It was a lovely group in such a serene place. Can't believe it's been so long since we were dancing in the moonlight under the fig tree!" Sophie Craig, London / UK Umbria Retreat 2017
