Week-long Retreats (Sun to Sat)
Stress and Pain Relief Retreat
Anti-Stress Retreat

We now offer weekend retreats in co-operation with yoga studios  all over Spain where we focus on Pain and/or Stress

We do not offer yoga retreats, there are hundreds of them, our focus is more on specific problems, like pain and stress, parenting, communication, and Goal setting.


Usually, we also offer three yoga/meditation sessions on every retreat (for a weekend retreat).


Our very first ever weekend retreat, (Friday to Sunday) is offered together with Ananda Laie Yoga Retreat Centre in Cabopino between Marbella and Malaga on Costa del Sol, January 22-24

Here you will learn about various chains of movement throughout the body. Similar to a chain, or dominoes falling, it's always the weak link in the body that is the first to give.

For example, a muscular imbalance can lead to fatigue and pain throughout the entire system. But, as can Chemical imbalances, negative thoughts, stress, and preprogrammed ”truths”/beliefs.

What is a Retreat?
A Retreat with us means that you come for a weekend or a full week
You stay at the retreat and all meals and snacks are included in the cost.
 

Our Retreats - There are thousands of Yoga and SPA retreats offered all around the world. Our retreats differ a lot from most of these retreats.
We focus on Pain, Stress, Parenting, Communication, and Goal setting. Of course, we offer daily yoga and meditation sessions, many days twice a day (voluntary sessions, as the whole day, if you don't want to do yoga, then you just say so, no problem. All sessions are 100% voluntary.


Become - Enlightened - You will get a whole new understanding of your pain and stress and Why it is there, AND an understanding of what you can do about it.
A combination of great advice, self-care tailored home exercises for you. In this understanding, you will be surprised by many facts and factors that have brought you here today, BUT also the power that You possess.


As expecting parents or parents of young children, or you that work with children, you will get an understanding of how you and your actions influence your child, and an understanding of why this happens AND what you can do to avoid and/or change this. Life-changing retreats (week-end)


Become Inspired - You will get a new blueprint and plan that will spark the next phase of your transformation to become the greatest version of yourself, as well as importantly, being pain-free.

Become Limitless - Because you will finally unleash your full, unstoppable potential to create significant change in your life. We will teach you the power of your thoughts and how to make them work positively for you.

If you take the on-line course or weekend retreat about Conscious Parenting you will get an invaluable insight and understanding of how can help your child become Limitless.


Become Empowered - You will get access to proven techniques and advice to help you become stress or pain-free and how to better deal with stresses in your life.

 A conscious parent knows: 

  • That what we sow in our children's brains largely dictates what they will become later in life. 
  • How their child is affected by their (the parents) stress? 
  • How their child's development is affected by their behavior/beliefs? 
  • During which periods the child's brain develops and how hey can influence this development? For good rather than bad.  
  • What they must stay away from in order to avoid incorrect programs/beliefs being planted in their child's brain? 
  • How patterns/beliefs are created in our children's brain?
    .. and understand the importance of their interaction and communication and how this affects their child for the rest of their lives.


Weekend Retreats

We offer three different weekend retreats, always in combination with yoga and Meditation.
Stress and Pain Relief, Pure stress retreats, or as we call them, Anti-Stress Retreats, and then there is Conscious Parenting.


1, Stress and Pain Relief Retreat
Here we focus on Pain but include other aspects that can affect or aggravate your pain. Offered both as weekend and week-long retreats.

The week-long retreat is a combination of 50% Pain managment and 50% Stress and goalsetting. 

2, Anti-Stress Retreat
Here we focus more on stress and emotional/mental issues we all have in our lives. Offered both as weekend and week-long Retreats


3, Conscious Parenting
This is only offered as a weekend Retreat, and can also be taken online, 24/7 wherever you are in the world.
The course online is about 5 hours and recorded live (including an hour lunch break) and available for only €40.
The retreat is much more in-depth and you get to stay at the retreat together with people in your situation. A lot of exercises and group work that you can't get on the online course. This is of course more expensive, but it's an all inclusive weekend, including a bed in a twin room or master room AND all meals.
