AS ONE | A CHAYA COMMUNITY RETREAT with PAULA ANDREEWITCH, LUCY HILL & THE CHAYA FAMILY
IBIZA 31st August - 7th September 2019
A glorious 7 day celebration of oneness and the deep joy of community!
One of the most incredible aspects of retreat is the healing, joyful power of living in community. Sharing each day, each meal and each practice as one. On our ‘As One’ retreat, we will come together to remember and re-connect to unity. Within ourselves and all of humanity. To honour the divinity in all things. And rejoice in togetherness.
LOCATION | IBIZA
Ibiza's tangible magic and stunning beauty offers the perfect location for our retreat.
The retreat will take place in two beautiful adjacent villas, set amongst shady pines and olive trees, in 'the campo', yet nearby to the vibrant and pretty town of Santa Gertrudis.
Within the villa's grounds, you’ll find an abundance of space, including landscaped gardens and woods to meditate amongst, two pools to cool off in the Ibizan sunshine and multiple terraces, all set in the peaceful Ibenican countryside. Alongside indoor and outdoor yoga shalas and ceremonial spaces, you’ll find large family style kitchens, therapy rooms, shady lounges and gorgeous communal eating spaces.
One of our villas, ‘Es Joncaret’ was once the home of Ra Uhuru, the founder of The Human Design System. Under the sacred fig tree in the Sanctuary's garden, he channelled some very special information which led to the development of this insightful system, which can be used as a manual for each person's unique design. Ra lived here at the property for 10 years and he planted and cared for much of the garden and built the bungalows. His very special and unique presence is felt all over the property and the garden. Many people feel it immediately as they arrive, others just feel it in a sense of 'not wanting to leave'.
YOGA | PAULA ANDREEWITCH
Paula shares her joyful approach to the yoga practice through explorative, soulful, slow flow. Classes generally begin on the ground and unravel into full spectrum practices that include story, philosophy and chanting woven into a physical practice that is both challenging and relaxing. She encourages listening deeply, responding mindfully, and exploring the mind - body with curiosity and open awareness. Her background in the Brazilian dance/play/martial art, Capoeira Angola, of which she is also a teacher, brings a playful and experimental element to her classes.
She’s been a student and mentee of Nicole Aarons (Soma Yoga) for 14 years and completed a classical teacher training in the Himalayas with Ganga Devi (Himalayan Yoga Institute). Since 2014 she has practiced under the guidance of Jean Hall, and is currently deepening her studies on Triyoga’s advanced teacher training lead by Jean and Anna Ashby. Her practice is also influenced by Stephanie Snyder, Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen and the Scaravelli inspired approach to practice as taught by Giovanni Felicioni.
MENUS | CHAYA KITCHEN
Using the bountiful abundance of local fruit and vegetables Ibiza has to offer, Chaya Kitchen will prepare delicious, organic, plant-based meals. Full of tasty super foods, designed to cleanse and lighten you mentally and physically, whilst energising and brightening you from the inside out.
