About this trip

When we think about breathing, most of us think of simply inhaling and exhaling. According to the traditional yogic perspective however, there are actually five specific channels for breathing. These breathing pathways can have either a positive or negative effect on a pose, on the function of our body and how our mind operates. 

Join Jeanne Heileman on a journey through the Five Pranas while we bask in a glorious region of Spain that is full of Prana. Each day will be devoted to one of the Vayus through asana, Pranayama and meditation practices. Morning yoga sessions will offer stronger practices with insights to continue Walking Practices throughout the day. Afternoon practices will weave in more Pranayama and Meditation to feel the subtle effects of each direction. On our last day we will weave all five Pranas together, the ultimate experience of respiration and Pranayama practice. 

You will leave knowing how to get more out of each breath, enriching both your yoga practice and your life.

Students who attend all of the classes and any fun assignments will be eligible to receive 25 hours of Continuing Education credits through Yoga Alliance from Tantra Flow Yoga™.

WHERE

 We will stay in a majestic large mansion at 8km from bohemian Tarifa and its wonderful beaches, in the province of Cádiz, Southern Spain.

A 700m2 built house, set in the middle of stunning grounds in a plot of 7,500m2, not overlooked by anyone. A secluded paradise. 

Located at the starting point of the Costa de La Luz, the urbanisation itself looks directly down a valley and is the shortest point across to Africa, which is only 14km away. It's mainly surrounded by Los Alcornacales national park and the land has been designated as rural and cannot be developed further. It makes it a beautiful, unspoilt and tranquil place.

The mansion has a fully equipped large indoor yoga room, suitable for aerial yoga too. In addition, there are many patios around the grounds that allow for outdoor sessions and meditation.

The house has 4 separate areas with bedrooms. The impressive rooms are perfectly designed, with confortable beds, and the perfect balance of privacy and the beauty of incredible views across to Africa.

The food is first class, delicious, ecological, local and seasonal, cooked by specialized chefs in vegetarian and vegan cuisine.

There are excellent walking and mountain biking routes, and many beaches to choose from, starting at the doorstep of Tarifa and going all the way up to Cádiz. Local favorites are Punta Paloma and Bolonia

A unique space to practice, reflect, connect, nourish and rest.

It was an unique experience. All that happened there was a gift for me. Sky's way of teaching is very special, simple, deep, and light. The venue is perfect for this purpose, spacious and very comfortable, with trees and sea views all around. The food was always healthy, fresh and varied. Thanks Paloma for making this happen! The organization was exceptional.

I just returned from Tarifa, Spain! Everyday and for breakfast, lunch and dinner, we watched from across the shores, the different changing sceneries of the spectacular African Coast! The experience was just extraordinary -from the gorgeous venue, to the expansive surroundings to the incredible beautifully prepared gourmet vegetarian meals! We bathed in alot of wonderful yoga with our beloved teacher Jeanne Heileman, took in moonlight sightings, the Mediterranean Sea, fabulous massages, new lovely friiendships et al. It was so wonderful, healing and so deliciously romantic that I felt I married myself! 🥰 Definitely a must do for people needing self care and practicing self love. Thank you Paloma and SHAMA for such an amazing experience! This was so special. 🙏

I recently had the pleasure of attending Shama Retreats Yoga in Nature, and it was truly an exceptional experience. From the moment I arrived, I was greeted by a warm and inviting atmosphere that set the tone for the entire retreat. One of the standout aspects of the retreat was the amazing teacher, Jeanne Heileman. Her deep wisdom and knowledge of yoga philosophy and anatomy were evident in every class. Jeanne has a unique ability to connect with her students on a profound level, guiding us through transformative yoga practices that went beyond the physical postures. Her teachings left a lasting impact on me, and I felt a deeper understanding of yoga and its principles. The retreat was beautifully organized, thanks to the incredible hostess, Paloma. Her attention to detail was exceptional, and she ensured that every aspect of the retreat was taken care of. Paloma's passion for creating a memorable experience was evident in the carefully planned excursions throughout Tarifa. Exploring the stunning surroundings, from the picturesque beaches to the charming town, added an extra layer of magic to the retreat. Now, let's talk about the food. The meals provided at Shama Retreats were unlike any other retreat I have experienced. Not only were they vegan, but they also incorporated Ayurvedic principles. The dishes were not just nourishing but presented with such artistic flair that each meal felt like a feast for the senses. The attention to detail in the flavors, textures, and overall presentation was simply outstanding. I left each meal feeling satisfied, nourished, and amazed by the culinary creations. Overall, my experience at Shama Retreats Yoga in Nature was nothing short of exceptional. The combination of Jeanne Heileman's insightful teachings, Paloma's impeccable hosting, and the incredible food made this retreat a truly transformative experience. I would highly recommend Shama Retreats to anyone looking to deepen their yoga practice, connect with nature, and indulge in a truly remarkable retreat experience. I know that this won’t be the last time I traveled with this group. Thank you lots - Nathalie
