DATES 2023:

Do you want to dance by the Mediterranean in September? Join the dance workshop at the beautiful countryside at Finca Parrilla next to the ancient medieval village of Frigiliana with the dancer and artist Liv Hanne Haugen.


Karlien is a locally based Yoga teacher and has been a Yoga practitioner since a very young age; “it was one of my after-school activities". At the age of 21she first travelled to India, where her fascination for Yoga grew. Karlien has completed a 4-year Yoga Teacher Training, in the European Sadhana Teacher Training School. She stayed at the Sivananda Meenakshi Ashram in India to learn from Sivananda teachers and continue to learn and enroll in different teacher trainings to offer the best possible care in her class.

The yoga classes are a mixture of Hatha yoga, calm vinyasa (yoga flow), yin yoga, breathing exercises and mindfulness meditation. We start the day with a soft morning yoga class (60 minutes), to wake up our bodies after a great night sleep and to help us prepare our hips, spine, and our energy through breathing for a morning meditation session in The Chapel.

The yoga classes take place in the beautiful garden. While we practice outdoors, surrounded by the natural park of Almijara, we deepen our breathing, focusing on renewing the air in our lungs and focus on learning new healthy breathing patterns. Practicing outdoors also allows us to relax due to the soothing effect of nature on our nervous system..Yoga is suitable for everyone regardless of age and physical form and you do not need to have experience with yoga before. Here you work on your own level and with your own starting point. We explain the exercises clearly and adapt to your individual needs.

The yoga / hiking vacation will be a break from daily demands and obligations. We offer the opportunity to stop, make time for yourself, to let go of tensions related to stress, bad posture, bad sleeping or eating habits.  When the program is complete, the participants have practiced yoga and meditation every day, hiked in the mountains, relaxed, and taken in nature's healing effect on body and soul.Guests will travel home with inspiration and better health! This retreat is ideal for singles, couples, friends or groups..

This is an open dance workshop for you who like to dance, and like to explore the body's own movements.

During this week you will be inspired to find your own “movements and personal expressions”. We will work with movements that lift and strengthen us. Everything we do this week will be within the framework of security and trust. The goal is that emotions and dreams can be freely expressed through movement and dance. In this way, new spaces and opportunities will arise in both mind and body.The breath, which is one of the most important tools for letting a deeper movement in, will be in focus.

Before lunch you will learn more about the basics, inherent and universal tools and premises for movement and dance, with a tradition in contemporary dance. These tools will give you the confidence to "connect" to your own dance, regardless of whether you are dancing alone or with others.

We will work with movement at different levels. Here we are talking about movements such as lying, crawling, upright, slow, lyrical, dynamic, explosive, the large and extensive movements, but also the small and inward-looking ones. We will dance alone, together in duets, trios and in larger groups with music and in silence.

After lunch, we will continue to explore the creative and improvisational expression, by setting intention and direction that makes you more aware of your own themes and personal expression.
We ask questions like what is your story? What do you want to convey? What do you want to create? And maybe there are completely different nuances in your story than what you know from before, maybe the way forward is even clearer?
