About the event
A retreat with José de Groot and Jordi Ibern
Eight days that will change your life!
The Yin Yoga & Reiki Retreat is a profound journey, allowing you to transform and connect. You will practice daily meditation, Yoga, Reiki and our unique Yin Yoga & Reiki Workshops; moreover, you will learn about the Spiritual origins of Yoga and Reiki, and you will be able to personalize your yoga and meditation practices.
During these days, there will also be plenty of time to relax and read, spend time in a fantastic infinity swimming pool, hike in nature and enjoy extremely tasty and healthy meals at the beautiful 18th century farm house surrounded by the amazing landscape including four white wild horses. However, the Yin Yoga & Reiki Retreat is NOT a yoga holiday. This Retreat is a deep nourishing experience full of care and attention that will stay with you forever.
Furthermore you will learn anatomy awareness in the Yoga workshops enabling you to adapt each yoga pose to your physical needs and abilities. This will allow you to embody and embrace your body and will give you tools to create and adapt your personal Yoga practice at home. Because it is a retreat with limited places, these workshops will be very individualized.

Yin Yoga & Reiki Workshops
This combination was created by José and Jordi in 2007 in Barcelona; the healing effects of Yin Yoga fit perfectly with the gentle therapy that Reiki offers. During the five specific workshops you will work on different physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects. Using the 5-element theory of the Chinese Medicine, you will establish in these sessions the balance and flexibility that your body, mind, and soul needs; all done with the same affection and attention that Jordi and José always give in their classes.
Yin Yoga is a specific Yoga practice which stimulates, restores, and extends the scope of the original motion of the deeper tissues of the body. Through the deeper tissues you stimulate the Qi (Chi) flow all over your body and beyond, which leaves you completely nurtured. Yin Yoga is healing, intense, and meditative, but first and above all, it’s therapeutic. Its results, among which a profound positive effect on the mind and a release of emotional stagnation, last usually for a long time.
Reiki is a simple and natural method that improves health, relaxes, and deepens the spiritual practice. Although it is known worldwide for its ability to stimulate the healing capability of the body; personal fulfillment and spiritual satisfaction remains the heart of this practice.
In this retreat you will wake up every morning your body and your heart with a dynamic Yoga practice and pranayama techniques so you can enjoy the re-awakened life energy for the rest of the day. José will personalize the practice to everyone’s needs. The sessions are open to all levels of practice.
Personalizing your own Yoga practice
You will re-discover your own body, uncovering its possibilities and limitations. In these workshops, you will discover how each body moves in a different and unique way, for that very reason Yoga poses are never performed identically by different people. For the Yoga poses to be beneficial and therapeutic for your body, you will learn how to adjust the poses in a personalized way.
Meditation and Noble Silence
Meditation can be understood in two ways, it can be a tool and a full spiritual practice. As a tool meditation can provide silence and stillness in a world of stress and disorder, as a full spiritual practice it can be a deep transformative journey. You will practice noble silence and meditation every morning before yoga and breakfast.
* If you do not have a meditation practice, we will gladly give you some tips so you can follow and enjoy the practices during this retreat.
