INTERNATIONAL RETREAT "THE ART OF UNDOING"

TRANSFORMATIONAL WEEK OF YOGA, THE SCIENCE AND PRACTICE OF MEDITATION
THE POWER OF THE HEART
18TH-23TH SEPTEMBER 2022 at Cal Simó, Spain

Welcome to our annual “The Art of Undoing” retreat in Spain. We are delighted to announce our new venue for this year, Cal Simo a traditional Catalan farmhouse dated from 1896 has been upgraded for today’s use while keeping its original features. In these idyllic, grounding and peaceful surroundings we are offering a week of HeartYoga, meditation and personal growth led by Chalotte Fruergaard and Nick Andrews.

The yoga: HeartYoga is not just yoga, not just meditation and not just breath work. It is a combination of ancient traditions from all over the world. It’s a yoga practice that goes deep into the roots of the earth and into your being. It’s a yoga practice that opens your heart and works with the intelligence of the mind and the heart all together. Chalotte is integrating her 25 years of experience, practise, and teachings into this holistic approach to body, mind and spirit. 

The yoga classes will be at a level for everybody. They can be adjusted to your body’s needs. We begin the morning with an awakening, fresh, and revitalising Hatha yoga class and in the afternoon, we end the day with a more restorative, relaxing series of yoga asanas and breathing exercises.

The meditation: Every session, including our yoga classes start or end with a guided meditation,
either sitting or lying down and suitable for any level.

The teachings: are designed to enhance your retreat experience and deepen your practice. In between sessions we offer HeartMath teachings that support your practice. Subjects include Transforming negative emotions, Heart and Brain coherence, and How to balance your energy.

They will be run by Nick who is a certified HeartMath practitioner. Nick has organised and delivered public and corporate educational workshops worldwide for over 30 years and is also certified by Dr Joe Dispenza as a
NeuroChange Solutions consultant.

The retreat is led in English with a Spanish translator.

ABOUT CAL SIMO

We have fallen in love with the ancient and magnificent Oak Tree under which we are looking forward to gathering and practicing together. Situated in The Garraf Natural Park, amongst their own fields of olive trees, it is an ideal location to disconnect from a busy life while having easy access to Barcelona Airport, Sitges and Vilanova.

EXPLORE THE BEAUTIFUL AREA

You may wish to spend a few days before and /or after on the coast. There are two towns nearest to Cal Pau Cruset ,one is Sitges and the other Vilanova i La Geltrù. Both equally great, Sitges is more turistic, lots to offer including night life and plenty of restaurants. 5 minutes away on the train and you are in Vilanova i La Geltrù, a hidden gem in Costa Dorada with its long beaches, buzzing local life and fantastic local fish restaurants. Prices are considerably lower than Sitges and you would be immersed in Catalan life style with its long Ramblas, stunning main square with its tapas bars and lively markets.

You can look in airbnb for places to stay but if you have any questions ask Teresa, she can advise you with her local knowledge.
