Sri Lanka Jivamukti Retreat

in english

January 16th  - January 22nd, 2023

with Rebeca Recatero & Eva Lucie Daniela

AHANGAMA, SRI LANKA

Liberation practices and movements for the body, mind & heart. 

 

Rebeca & Eva felt the need to redefine what a meaningful retreat, in an ever-shifting world, can entail. They are taking you to Sri Lanka for their second destination, a place full of breathtaking scenery and abundant wildlife. 

Ahangama is a typical Sri Lankan buddhist beach village on the south-west coast located 20 minutes away from the picturesque Galle Fort and 20 minutes from the beach community of Mirissa. A place where the contours of the land form a kind of sinewy poetry.

 

From lush rainforests, rock pools, idyllic pristine beaches, spectacular coral reefs and long mellow waves to Unesco World Heritage Sites and sacred temples. Immerse yourself in a vibrant tropical paradise and a millenary culture with practices rooted in human connection, breath and movement.

Designed to cultivate loving kindness and consequently strength and courage, their retreats are about celebrating each other and connecting to the most honest and complete version of Yourself.

Jivamukti Yoga is a path to enlightenment through compassion for all beings. The Jivamukti Method is grounded in the original meaning of the Sanskrit Word Asana as “seat, connection” – relationship to the Earth. Earth implies all of Life.

 

We together take the chance to [re] write our stories once more.

ITINERARY

spicy curries and flavourful Kottu Roti, 

sweet burning incense and fruity tropical air 

bubbling together in a heady mix. 

deep ocean blues,

and lush tea greens, 

silky bright pink Sari

and rainbow tuk tuk. 

waves crashing on the shore, 

the clacking of train carriages 

a breeze through the dense jungle, 

and a Buddhist prayer.

We plan our retreat thoughtfully and lovingly so that our retreaters experience this escape filled with cherished memories.

 

But we also give plenty of space for you to enjoy time to yourself and life at a slower pace. We encourage you to create a schedule that suits your needs for each present moment.

YOUR INSTRUCTORS

Our feelings have blended, 

Our paths converged, 

Our stories merged.

REBECA

I started practicing Yoga in my early 20s when I was living in Sydney, Australia finishing my university studies.

My first yoga practice was unlike anything I had experienced before. It was all new yet it felt familiar and intimate. As if the words of compassion and reconnection were speaking right into the awakening of my heart and mind.

I trust that in cultivating the courage for opening and softening, as Yoga teaches us, we can move in a direction that feels purposeful.

I have been practicing since 2015 and teaching a year after that. Having studied this method for all these years, I am certified as an Advanced Jivamukti Yoga teacher and feel grateful to serve as a mentor and facilitator at the teacher training in Jivamukti Yoga Barcelona.

Continuing to teach classes, workshops and retreats my intention is to keep expanding the teachings as far and as deep as it is possible.

EVA

As I was growing up, the world began to show me its many challenges and hardships.  I was guided more and more into the world of movement medicine, and then Yoga. Through Yoga I was able to compassionately move through insurmountable challenges.

 

And it eventually became evident that these gifts needed to be shared with a wider community. I became a Teacher in february 2016 with Santosha Yoga, an Australian Institute. 

 

In 2018, I became a certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher, joining the community to  empower humans to cultivate actions based on compassion, non-violence and Love.

 

Over the last six years I have received transmission from many teachers to whom I am endlessly grateful and devoted - among these are Sharon Gannon, Yogeswari and Meghan Currie. I have always believed in this collective inspiration for a creative expression of body and soul {or bodysoul}, to this end the Havah Yoga Collective was founded.

 

I wish to share these liberation practices for the  heart as a pathway to recovery, transmitting the gifted experiences that helped me along the way.
