2016 Costa Brava Yoga Gathering
An Experience to Connect Body, Mind and Landscape
Come join us on the shores of northern Catalunya known as Costa Brava, one of the Earth's most beautiful natural landscapes, a powerful energetic place where mountains and mediterranean meet. We will gather in this magical land to dive deep into ourselves through the yoga practice and discover how this land helps us feel the wonder of flowing freely with the elements. Holistically designed for maximum connection of body and landscape.
let the land move you!
5 DAY DEEP YOGA RETREAT
5 days to dive deep into the yoga practice with the guidance of catalan yogis Sònia Isart i Sanou and Xavi Punsola in our geodesic wooden cupola and out in nature. Other guests include musicians and land artists.
3 DAY ACTIVE RETREAT
3 days with morning and evening yoga sessions complementing a range of inspiring activities offered to connect you with the hidden treasures of the Costa Brava.
Wonderflow sprung up with Nomadyoga's yogini Sònia Isart i Sanou impulse to create a retreat which not only reflected the magic of this very special land (l'Empordà) but would also allow a full experience of its gifts : the rhythms of its elements will awaken your body, its wild and peaceful nature will harmonise your soul, under its wide open skies the mind is free to flow.
Hence our philosophy grows from this incredible place: l'Empordà. Its riches are here for your delight, stunning natural beauty of the mountains, miles of unspoilt beaches, gentle rivers home to diverse wildlife, a peaceful soft light at dawn and dusk. You will be enraptured by its powerful capacity to nourish and will discover a connection with the sacred energy of its landscape.
So come and let the wonder of life unfold... and let the land move you!
The 2016 wonderflow retreat will take place in an exceptional oasis : 6km of wild dune-lined beach and a natural park with uninterrupted views of the snow-capped Pyrenees.
Your accomodation is located 5 minutes away from the beach, in cosy bungalows on the Las Palmeras campsite, with all facilities on-hand. Yoga classes take place inside our specially designed eco-geodesic cupola built by esferic.cat, set in a beautiful space on the campsite with the pyrenees as a backdrop.
To make your yogic experience 100% complete, delicious vegetarian and vegan food will be daily prepared on site by our friends in the campsite kitchen, using fresh seasonal organic local produce.
SÒNIA ISART i SANOU
Sònia's being is an invitation to rest deeply within ourselves. Her rich and textural teaching and exploration of the inner landscape draw us into a more sensual experience of all that is occurring. She demonstrates a rare skill of courageous and rigorous self-study. Her offering shimmers with tender vulnerability.
Sònia is NomadYoga's founder, she belongs to the international yoga community YogaAnytime com and has taught yoga around the world. She is the core of the wonderflow gathering and will be teaching the afternoon hatha yoga and deep listening classes during the deep yoga retreat and the evening lesson during the active retreat.
Xavi is a disciplined yoga teacher that gives full meaning to the concept of sadhana and abhyasa: the constant unbreakable practice. The beauty of his practice lies in exploring the depths that the breath offers, allowing the natural flow of movement, either through inspiring karanas of his own creation, sun salutations or inner micro movements during static poses. His teaching illuminates the process of unblocking the body, to allow a deeper meditative state and achieve self-realization, higher consciousness and connection with the soul.
Xavi has been an amazing inspiration from which came the idea to form a group of yogis for the wonderflow gathering. He will be teaching morning integral yoga lessons during the deep yoga retreat and the morning lessons during the active retreat.

Sònia Isart i Sanou
Yoga found Sonia at a time in her life when she felt quite lost, trying to find out who she was. Ko ham (Who am I) has been one of the central questions that has inspired the ancient and modern yogis on their quest. Within this model of inquiry, Sonia was able to see more clearly and find a new quality of peace.
