THE ART OF TRANSFORMATION RETREAT
at Cal Reiet in Santanyi, Mallorca
14-18 October 2022
Join Ulrica for what will be a sweet retreat, where the focus lie on caring for maintenance of each segment of the body and its inner domains. With the intention of wholeness, decreasing pain and adding pleasure, transforming tension to strength and insecurity to growth. You will most certainly leave with a far more cleared up sensation in body, mind and spirit.
Some of the topics covered will be:
EARTH, WATER AND FIRE
Balancing and strengthen the foundation in our body and being. Here we build from the ground up through a series of thought through movement sequences where the intention is to release tension and build stamina, strength and endurance as well as patience, radiance and integrity. Includes flowing asana, pranayama, mudra, mantras and meditation. As well as theory around how we can transform matter to energy and vice versa.
AIR, SPACE AND BEYOND
Balancing and strengthen the top layers and aspects of being.
With the breath as our guide, we set sail to soften our edges, finding that gentleness and care that resides inside, ebbing out in a sense of blissful calm and serenity. Involves soft flow, bandha work, pranayama, restorative and yoga nidra.
INTEGRATION , STRENGHT AND SOFTFULNESS
We will work on ways to yoke different techniques together and overview the management of a practice. On how we can bring our polarites to unison in new and more functional ways where we can use all our experiences, traits and unbalances as potential building blocks.
The beauty of transformational work is that the new is already known. We don’t need to shop from the outside. Rather learn how to integrate and transform energy.
Every morning starts with a flowing, sweet yoga class followed by a guided meditation. In the afternoon, we will deepen the yogapractice through more tension releasing practice alongside with pranayama.
|Morning yoga at 7-9 am Flow and meditate

Bring a notebook/pen. And whatever can aid your practice.
