A new year, a new challenge! This year I will be co-hosting my first yoga retreat with the lovely Kat at her beautiful mountain home in Rasquera, Catalunya.
After lots of fun planning and careful thought we have created a retreat that marries some our favourite things: yoga (of course), delicious home-made food, space to get back to nature and workshops that inspire. We hope this intimate retreat will help our guests take their yoga practice beyond the mat; to take their ‘yoga’ out of the studio and into their daily lives.
Our first retreat is a ‘Yoga and Sound’ experience. Kat and I will teach the two yoga classes each day and we are excited that sound worker, Charli Kornblum, will be leading the workshops. Charli is a singer, composer, overtone singer and voice therapist/ vocal coach. She experiments with the voice, mixing different styles and techniques from diverse cultures.
Through her Voice & Song workshops, Charli will be guiding you to get in touch and feel comfortable with your voice and the sound of your voice, playing with different exercises to help you have the confidence to sing; creating songs of and in the moment, be they free sounds, with melodies, with words or no words. Guiding and helping you find your way of expressing yourself authentically with your voice.
And why are we focusing on the voice you may ask?
I won’t go too far into the huge (and fascinating) topic of chakras here, but these workshops are designed to work on opening and unblocking your throat (Vishuddha) chakra. The chakra associated with:
- Expression, in particular ability to express your truth, to speak out
- Communication, whether it’s verbal or non-verbal, external or internal
- Creativity, projecting ideas into reality
- Realising your vocation, purpose
What better gift can you give yourself than the confidence to express your true self and creativity with honesty and integrity.
At the heart of it, it is all about feeling liberated and joyful- So come make some beautiful noise with us in the mountains! 💚💚💚
