NEW YEAR’S TANTRA YOGA IMMERSION

7-Day New Year’s Immersion: Dec 30-Jan 5, 2014
3-Day New Year’s Retreat: Dec 30-Jan 1, 2014

This immersion will explore powerful Tantric techniques that will connect you to your most awakened self. Pedro will explore the chakras, pranayama, meditation and cleansing practices. This unique yoga immersion will not be an intensive 7 hours a day of asana kind of yoga retreat, although there will be free time for anyone needing to wiggle around/hike/asana.

Set at the beautiful Avalon Springs, your incredible immersion will be held by an extremely motherly space, the most healing soaking and drinking waters, amazing/nourishing food, beautiful surroundings and a fantastic staff. Through the combination of Pedro’s incredible teachings, Avalon’s beautiful space and our sweet community, this one of a kind immersion will surely be an unforgettable experience.

WHO IS THIS RETREAT FOR?

This yoga immersion is for anyone looking to deepen their yoga practice, beyond asana, with an emphasis of deep integration of asana, energy work, pranayama, ritual, self care and meditation into their daily life. This immersion is for both inexperienced and experienced yoga practitioners as it will be physically accessible to all levels. This experience will also be a perfect fit for any yoga teacher looking to deepen their understanding of yoga and gain valuable CEU’s for their certificates.

WHAT IS TANTRA YOGA?

“The science and practice of Tantra has been likened to honey (madhu), in that it reveals the sweetness that is life IN this world, as well as within spiritual unfolding.”-Katie Silcox.

Tantra awakens our ability to see and experience awe in each moment, inviting more and more divine in the mundane. It links all of the practices (including asana, pranayama, visualization, bandha, energy work, subtle anatomy, meditation, and bhakti) into a single, methodical, personalized and deep approach that takes our practices into daily expression of our truest self.

Tantra comes from the words Tanoti (to expand, stretch, extend) and Trayoti (to liberate or free) – Meaning the practice of expanding one’s awareness to everything and liberating one’s existence beyond the material and into the spiritual. In essence, Tantra is the exploring of the Divine through self discovery and liberation of the individual.

ABOUT AVALON SPRINGS

Avalon has what we think is the perfect mix between rustic living, cozy comfort and spa goodness. The rooms are old and are still being refurbished so aren’t super fancy, but are comfortable and cozy. Most of the rooms have a sink for washing but use a shared bathroom by the pools or in the lodge like the original hot springs was set up. The food and the waters are top notch and are as healing and tasteful than any resort I’ve been to, if not more so. The all around vibe is familial and you’ll feel like you’re diving into yourself while being supported by the land, the waters, the food, the atmosphere and most of all the people. If you’re looking for a sterile 5 star $400/night hotel, this isn’t for you!

THE DRINKING WATER
In addition to the soaking springs, Avalon boasts a variety of special mineral drinking waters which can be enjoyed straight from their place of emergence in the rock. One drinking spring is high in Lithium – a mood elevator commonly used to treat Bipolar Disorder. Other springs include a bubbly iron soda drinking spring, a Magnesium-rich “laxative” spring historically named “Dynamite Spring” and Bohemia Spring, which was considered a hang-over tonic to cure the effects of over-indulgence!

THE LAND
The land of Avalon Springs commands panoramic views beyond Big Canyon’s wooded valleys and into the Mayacamas Mountains. The wind blows soft and steady from the ocean across the tops of the foothills to the West. A majestic rock face stands guard over the plateau where future guest residences are to be built.
The lodge, spa bathing area, and wellness center are shaded in the hot summer months by the hilltop we call the Tor of Avalon (a tribute to Avalon in Glastonbury), which sits on the south side of the property. The view plateau commands a breathtaking panorama of Boggs Forest, Big Canyon Valley, and the Maycamas mountains beyond to the east.

Across the road, Avalon Learning Village, the related non-profit educational organization, will be home to the gardens and intensive workshops that complement and literally nourish the resort.
It is no surprise that this land has been held sacred by the local community, both modern and native. Avalon’s development seeks to honor this land with conscious design, inspiring programming, and responsible ecological stewardship.

THE FOOD

The kitchen at Avalon Springs will draw ingredients straight from the garden, offering an ample buffet-style meal plan with large meals twice daily (lunch and dinner) and a juice and snack bar available for breakfast and between-meals needs.
Entrees for meals at Avalon will include some organic local meats, fish, and poultry as well as ample fresh vegetarian fare sourced from local farms and Avalon’s own gardens. Raw food delights will also be showcased on occasion to feature the potency and taste of the freshest produce available.

With every meal introducing healing foods preparation including raw food delicacies, superfood juices, and healing teas, dining at Avalon will be a healing experience. Unlike many healing resorts, Avalon Springs will have no dogmatic restrictions on diet, allowing the guests the freedom to explore options and choose their own ways to nourish themselves naturally, with everything from raw chocolates to hearty meats and local wines.
