New Year Retreat in Spain

New Year’s Eve Retreat 𝐔𝐍𝐌𝐀𝐍𝐈, means that intimate encounter with your true self. 𝐔𝐍𝐌𝐀𝐍𝐈 means beyond the mind. It is that state that is between wakefulness and sleep.
In this state the Yogi is neither awake nor asleep.

This year-end and New Year’s Eve retreat is taught from the integration of Iyengar Yoga, hatha Yoga, vinyasa krama and Kashmir tantric non-dualism. Delve into the practice of Yoga, meditation, human relations, communication and traditional Kashmir tantra.

An intimate year-end retreat for 22 people in the Sierra de Gredos. Submerged between oaks and mountains… a silent, beautiful, magical and perfect place to say goodbye to the year and welcome the new one…
UNMANI refers to a different and natural way of perceiving the world, a return to the instinctive, animal and therefore natural. Like alchemy itself, we propose a retreat where you dilute the experiences of the whole year in the exhalation, but not without first taking the learning in all the pores of the skin and transforming it into something light, beautiful and kind. We will welcome the new year by planting strong seeds of purpose, gratitude, and compassion.
