About this trip

Just so you can allow yourself to be spontaneous with your adventures, I searched and found this charming, cozy, urban spot in Barcelona “Yoga Weeks” to host my next Mediterranean retreat. Adventure is refreshing! Join me in this gorgeous city for a spiritual adventure this spring!

While immersing yourself in transformational yoga and meditation practice, you will also get to enhance your knowledge about the latest scientific researches on nutrition that will help you evaluate your dietary habits. Each morning we will begin our day with practicing energizing and strengthening asana practice with a twist that will boost your metabolism, then will explore the Spanish culture all day, return to our beautiful venue to restore energy and take a contemplative intermission in the evenings before we get back out to join the vibrant city again.

The focus of our practice will be to enhance the quality of life. When we clean up what is on the way of our advancement as an individual a new path opens up to the field of possibilities that extends beyond our desires. I developed “Contemplative Intermission” to help you help yourself in reaching this field of possibilities for enhancement. Taking a Contemplative Intermission everyday, you will be able to see yourself clearly, understand the dynamics of your life, your intentions, and your actions better. Together we will work on increasing our level of consciousness on mind, body, and emotions.

During this retreat you will be encouraged to go beyond your expectations and surprise yourself, and experience what it means to do your best.

Additional Information

Yoga Weeks offers both an indoor and a rooftop space for us to practice which we will be free to choose from. Barcelona is one of the most exciting cities I’ve visited. Besides from its rich culture, art, and amazing hospitality, dining is wonderful and cost is surprisingly affordable-especially if you are coming from NYC. For dinner I will have a list of places for us to taste wholesome food that will enrich your journey on the culinary side. Usually a dinner with an appetizer, main dish, and a drink cost ranges between 16-35E per person. Dinner on your first night is included, after that we will get to experience a different taste at a different restaurant each day.

Barcelona offers great beaches in the metro are as well as beautiful Mediterranean beaches outside the city. The beaches within walking distance from Yoga Weeks are; Barceloneta Beach, Bogatell Beach.
