One of yoga’s many beauties is that it can be practised anywhere, not only in studios. Scientific research has discovered that practising yoga in nature enhances its effects, increasing your focus and enhancing your levels of wakeful relaxation.

You can really feel the oxygen flowing through your body, clearing your mind and heart, empowering your yoga practice.

Our series of Yoga & Wellness retreats include the following options:

A retreat at CASARA WAY that will help you discover a healthier and more positive lifestyle, focusing on your own happiness and well-being. Specially designed to enable you to dedicate some time to yourself.

An intensive, fun, high content programme that will help you improve your health, increase your life expectancy and bring vitality back into your life. The retreat combines ancient yoga techniques from the East with the latest advances in cooking and nutrition, and includes a personalised health coaching consultation.

This retreat has one purpose: re-establishing your body and mind balance in the shortest amount of time possible, so that you can enjoy life to the full again. The retreat uses a healthy juice diet and suitable therapeutic drinks to detoxify the body and remove the accumulated impurities and toxins.

On this retreat, guests will be able to enjoy yoga and horse riding, building their connection to their inner selves and to the environment and helping them develop, grow and achieve their personal goals.

This retreat consists of outdoor activities as well as pranayama and yoga classes that focus on restoring the right levels of health and energy. It is the best way to explore the beauty of Cadiz, with exciting activities such as kayaking, stand-up paddle, horse riding, hiking, cycling and some local culture too.

This retreat combines surfing and yoga, both of which build strength, flexibility, focus and endurance. Both yoga and surf can be spiritual and meditative exercises, and both make you feel fully alive in the moment.

YOGA LESSONS

We cater for all levels of ability. If yoga is something you have never tried before, this is your opportunity to try out something new. Alternatively, if you are experienced then this is the opportunity to go deeper in your practice with our experienced team in the beautiful and magical surroundings of Zahora.

Studies have proven yoga to be one of the best ways to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and relieve insomnia, depression and anxiety. Yoga also helps to improve overall fitness, strength, and flexibility.

At CASARA WAY there will be two classes of yoga and a pranayama session from Monday to Friday. Additional yoga scheduled during the week can be arranged upon request.

Morning Ashtanga Yoga class

Ashtanga Yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method of yoga involves synchronizing a progressive series of postures, linked by movement and breath.

Ashtanga classes are great for students who are new to yoga, yoga practitioners who want to learn more about Ashtanga, or anyone looking for a refresher course.

We will go through the fundamentals of Ashtanga yoga practice in a slow, safe and comprehensive manner.

Benefits: Ashtanga practice produces intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is an improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind. This practice stretches the entire body and increase flexibility. It also relaxes the nervous system, improves concentration and provides all over physical and mental well-being. Ashtanga helps alleviate tension, reduce stress and regularize the metabolism, noticeably improving digestion and sleep.

Early evening Yin Yoga class

Yin Yoga is a meditative practice that consists of floor postures (asanas) held passively for extended periods of time (1-5 minutes). The postures target the underlying connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) of the hips, pelvis and back. The practice of surrender opens the body and helps cultivate the ability to observe and stay with the sensation.

After a day of fun exercise, full of movement, rhythm and repetition, our muscles expand and contract. The muscles tend to lose their natural softness and become more inflexible. Practising yin yoga helps gives you the balance your body needs. You will not only heal injuries from the past, but also prevent injuries in the future.

Benefits: This practice calms and balances the mind and body, increases circulation and improves joint mobility and fascial release. It also reduces stress and anxiety, helps injury recovery and reduces the risk of new injuries.

Morning Pranayama class

The ancient Pranayama breathing techniques are an efficient way of purifying the body and stimulate the metabolism. With the basic act of bringing in more oxygen, vitamins and minerals are more easily absorbed. With good exhalation, more toxins are removed from the bloodstream, which revitalizes the organs and clarifies the mind.

Breathing properly sends oxygen flooding into every single cell in your body. The air does not just come into your lungs, but is taken to every single cell in your body via your circulation system.

Benefits: Pranayama techniques are beneficial in treating a range of stress and emotional related disorders. Pranayama helps relieve the symptoms of asthma. Practising pranayama everyday can assist in developing a steady mind and strong willpower.

Regardless of your age, weight, physical condition or general state of health, we can help you attain your physical fitness objectives.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

When we go on holiday, many of us choose a destination where we can enjoy the beach and the beauties of nature. Sunbathing, resting from stressful jobs and disconnecting from our daily routine are the main goals.

Exercise can also make a big difference to a memorable and rewarding holiday.  At CASARA WAY, we can help you enjoy all the benefits of physical exercise, one of the best ways to detox your body and relax your mind. When we exercise, our body releases endorphins, which can greatly improve our mood as well as increasing our fitness.
