Yoga as taught at Cortijo Romero goes far deeper than the latest trends of lycra-clad people in shiny studios. Yoga holidays at this Spanish Mountain Retreat Centre are for anyone looking for a real holiday of the mind, body and soul.
Amersham, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/04/2013 -- Hot Yoga, Cold Yoga, Acrobatic Yoga or celebrity endorsement; weight-loss and detox ... this is repackaging of an ancient tradition into a quick-fix exercise routine.
Yoga is far deeper than the media hype, with its pictures of beautiful people and yoga ‘merchandise.’ These images give a false impression, misrepresenting the natural simplicity of the form, which some have defined as a union with the divine. From its roots in pre-history (3rd millennium BCE) yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice; a discipline with a view to attaining permanent peace.
Yoga at Cortijo Romero is rooted in the tradition as a three-fold practice of body, mind and spirit. The centre, established for 20 years, offers yoga holidays run by tutors whose own practice honors these values. A week of yoga practice under their mindful guidance goes far beyond the average holiday experience, with each tutor bringing something unique which they have developed through their own particular passion for yoga.
During the week’s holiday there will be about 20 hours of yoga tuition, as well as an excursion into the surrounding mountains and plenty of time to just ‘be’, to relax in the pool under the palm trees or sit quietly in the gardens or meditation room. Sharing beautifully prepared vegetarian meals in the sunshine are part of the overall experience of a simple and wholesome way of life that calms yet nourishes the whole being.
