MINDFULNESS. An 8-sessions course.
Mindfulness is a technique which emerged with the goal of bringing the Buddhist meditation to the western culture. Having its foundations on the tradition this practice is based on learning how to live moment by moment, experiencing the present and the power of the NOW. Only by switching off the usual ‘automatic mode’ we all live with and being really aware of how we are we will be able to make the most of every second and find inner peace with ourselves. In this course we will work through theoretical principles which will help us understand the real part: the practice. The weekly sessions will let us progress in a gradual way helping us to integrate the practice in our everyday lives step by step.
¿What can we expect from the course?
With a consistent practice we will be able to canalize our attention and stabilize our minds and emotions. Mental agitation will decrease and we will start to deepen in ourselves and experience the present moment fully. We will start to better understand our reactions (normally driven by inherited mental patterns) and learn to react with freedom. The goal is to be able to see reality from an objective and positive point of view, avoiding any sort of unnecessary suffering.
The course will be taught by Lucía Amo, psycologist with a broad experience in Mindfulness and studies in MBCT (Mindful-based cognitive therapy) by the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice (CMRP) of the University of Bangor.
VINYASA MASTERCLASS. A journey through your feels.
Marta Gil will be back at THE YOGA BOX to share with you all a very special yoga session which will consists of two parts. This masterclass will start with a yang but mindful VINYASA practice with focus on transitions between postures and will end up with a YIN practice to open up the body, release tensions and let go of anything we no longer need.
Over this workshop we will go deep in the inner body to unblock emotions and feelings which will help us move throughout the mat. The combination of a YANG practice (fiery and active) with a YIN end (soft and restorative) let us workout the body and bring the nervous system down at the same time to finish the workshop with the feeling of inhabiting a new body with a renovated energy and a calm mind. Also we will be working deeply our breathing which is the most powerful tool we have to connect with ourselves.
We will also be having tea and delicious vegan snacks prepared by Alicia from @micasavegana!!! YUMMYYY
‘THE ROCKET’ WEEKEND
TRANSITIONS. THE ART OF FLOATING | SATURDAY 22/06 11:30-13:30

With no doubt this is a workshop to try new stuff and take your practice to a whole new level!
BACKBENDS. HEART OPENERS | SATURDAY 22/06 16:00-18:00
This workshop is dedicated to fully understand the mechanics behind these postures so we can go deep into them in a safe way. We will learn how to elongate the spine with control through the creation of space in between the vertebrae, in the shoulder griddles and the hips. Be ready to go to the deepest of your practice!
ROCKET II MASTERCLASS | SUNDAY 23/06 11:30-13:30
Enjoy a full guided Rocket II session which will include postures from the intermediate and advanced series of Ashtanga Yoga.

ACROYOGA. Acro Dance & Tricks.
AcroYogaDance is a partner yoga practice which evolves into a moving meditation which is a celebration of what a union of two human bodies, minds and spirits can achieve. It brings beautiful and elegant transitions, making them simple so that with practice can evolve into stunning sequences which eventually will feel like a dance. This workshop is designed to suit all levels even if you have never flown before and it is open not only to couples but also to practitioners who want to come on their own.
A SERIES OF WORKSHOPS WITH TONY LUPINACCI
Acclaimed yoga teacher based in New York, Tony is a firm believer in staying curious, and challenging ones sense of identity.
His teaching style blends elements of Ashtanga, Bikram, Forrest, Dharma and Kundalini.
Tony encourages students to step into their strength and to get curious about their practice. In these rigorous vinyasa classes, students will be invited to play with edge to find their hidden potential through physical awareness. That’s where the magic happens! All the soul wants is to connect and all the heart wants is to love.
HIPS & INVERSIONS | SÁBADO 6 ABRIL 11:30 – 13:30
This workshop focuses on hip opening and inversion techniques designed to designed to strengthen and open the upper and lower body.
The workshop begins with a warm up vinyasa class that will focus on creating heat in the lower body. After the class, students will go into their hip circuit, through a series of repeated hip opening postures. Different variations of each pose will be offered. Each hip circuit will be interspersed with inversions and arm balances designed to compliment the hip opening practice. Students will learn proper shoulder techniques, focal points, and will utilize their bandhas to deepen control and strength during their inversion. Although inversions seem intimidating, this workshop is designed for all levels, and will utilize tools and variations that allow every student to face the fear and disorientation of being upside down.
BACKBENDING WITH STRENGTH | DOMINGO 7 ABRIL 11:30 – 13:30
We will begin with a strong vinyasa class that includes abdominal exercises, standing postures, and inversions. After the warm up, we will flow into classical backbending postures with an interactive lecture focusing on alignment and technique. To safely backbend, it is imperative that we use our strength and awareness to open the body. In this 2 hour workshop we will focus on using the lower body, the muscles along the spinal column and the breath to open the front-side body and ultimately facilitate the backbend. Mantra and pranayama will also be taught.
* Both workshops will be taught in English.
