Food will also play an important role from food selection to meal preparation and as featured in our cuisine workshops designed by Ophelie Doll to pamper your body and mind throughout the entire stay.
Carolina Daza and Francesca Lo Cascio will guide you during the Meditation and Yoga classes. The classes are mainly held in English with the possibility of classes available in other languages according to our guests needs (French, Spanish or Italian)
Our yoga program is dedicated to all levels of this discipline. Entirely based on how guiding your breathing its practice will be divided in four parts:
The first part is dedicated to breathing (Pranayama) and to meditation.
The second part is dedicated to Hata Yoga to learn all the positions through the decomposition of the movement.
A third dynamic part of Vinyasa Yoga where the various positions are finalized to the pace of the breathing.
A last part consists instead in deep relaxation (Shavasana).
In Yoga, the body is called annamaya kos'a, a Sanskrit word that means "made of food", to emphasize the close link between food, body and mind. The body is in fact considered the first level of the mind, the most external and material, the means by which the mind interacts with the world.
Good food, happy mood, a pinch of love… the ideal recipe to nourish your body and soul.
We will learn to create a colorful meal, loaded with good vibes. All our senses will be used, sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch, but also the 6th one, intuition, that we will listen to, to express our limitless creativity!
Ophelie will accompany you in this adventure with joy and benevolence, giving you tips for you to intuitively cook. She traveled a lot, took cooking classes, but the best school was to listen to her body, her desires, needs, and to nourish it with love.
You will learn how to create your own way of cooking, but you will go inward in the meantime, by listening everything your body and soul will have to say.
