Creative Yin Yoga Retreat
Julie Goeminne & Steffi Goddard
2 - 7 May 2020
How about some true peace and quiet? Recharge the batteries and renew your inspiration! Treat yourself to this one-of-a-kind healing retreat in the middle of rural Spain, at the stunning Cortijo Las Salinas, a Spanish oasis yoga venue where you can relax and unwind.
Creativity nourishes the soul!
Yin Yoga in the morning will awaken your creativity so you can enjoy the freedom of painting in the afternoon together with our lovely hostess and very talented artist Steffi Goddard. No need to have any experience in art or yoga as this is a retreat for everyone.
Yin Yoga is a slower-paced, more meditative version of yoga. In Yin yoga, the poses are held for a long period of time (typically three to five minutes or longer) to target the connective tissues (such as the ligaments) rather than focusing on the muscles. As a result, the asanas are more passive holds, with little muscular engagement.
Benefits of a regular Yin yoga practice
Calms and balances the mind and body
Reduces stress and anxiety
Releases fascia and improves joint mobility
Balances the internal organs and improves the flow of chi
The art project will be based around the theme of the Chinese 5 elements, which is the primary theme for the retreat and the yin yoga and meditation will help you to find your inner artist – your creative authentic self.
A unique combination of Yoga and Painting!!!
5 Days of 100% me-time, enjoying yoga ... meditation ... nature ... fresh air ... painting ... healthy meals ... and lush warm Spanish sunshine. Here, you will find an abundance of opportunities to relax (yoga classes, meditations, massages, whirlpool, swimming pool) and get fresh inspiration.
Julie en Steffi are ready to give you their full attention.
The retreat program looks as follows:

// LOCATION //
Villa Cortijo Las Salinas is in the rural heart of Andalucia in Southern Spain, amidst a land of olive trees, deep blue skies and white washed villages. You can find Villa Cortijo Las Salinas sitting proudly and majestically in range of low green mountains on the edge of a natural park, where you have uninterrupted views over the beautiful and dramatic landscapes.
Here you are surrounded by the beauty and charm of the local area, peppered with hints of the legacy of the moors, flamenco music, continual and incomparable fiestas, brilliant sunshine and the people of Andalucía who live life to the full.
As you pass under the bell hanging in the impressive entrance arch, gaze at the large swimming pool which appears to fall off into the olive groves and into the valley below, and enter the stunningly beautiful courtyard you realise you have arrived at a very beautiful and tranquil place.
