Malta Retreat

Malta Retreat

November 1st – November 10th, 2023 —

I’m sending you all a heartfelt invitation to join me for a transformative retreat in the picturesque island of Malta. Set against the backdrop of Malta’s serene landscapes and beautiful azure waters, this hybrid retreat promises to be a perfect blend of yoga āsana practice, vipassanā meditation instruction, and relaxation.

The meditation and yoga practices included in the trip to Malta will offer a transformative and holistic experience. The meditation sessions will encompass various techniques, such as mindfulness, vipassanā, and loving-kindness. Participants will be guided to cultivate present-moment awareness, develop inner stillness, and deepen their connection with themselves.

The yoga practice will be a harmonious blend of gentle, flowing movements, breath work, and mindful postures. Participants of all levels will have the opportunity to enhance their flexibility, strength, and balance while fostering a sense of inner harmony and tranquility. The yoga sessions will be tailored to cater to individual needs, ensuring a safe and supportive environment for all participants.

Throughout the retreat, emphasis will be placed on the integration of meditation and yoga, allowing participants to deepen their mindfulness practice through embodied movement. The sessions will will provide individualized attention, adjustments, and modifications to support each participant’s unique journey.

Whether you are a seasoned practitioner or new to meditation and yoga, the practices offered during the trip will encourage self-exploration, self-care, and self-discovery. It will be an opportunity to cultivate a sense of inner peace, balance, and overall well-being while embracing the serene and transformative energy of Malta’s beautiful surroundings.

Come, embrace this enriching experience and allow Malta’s tranquil beauty to inspire and rejuvenate your mind and body. Secure your spot by the end of the month and embark on this transformative journey with me.
