Meditative Gathering


The objective of this gathering is to share ancient breathing meditation techniques to develop your inner clarity through a dynamic calibration of the nervous system.

Exercises from the earliest days of yoga will be explored, as well as meditative and breathing practices suitable for everyone except those with heart conditions, epilepsy, glaucoma, or high blood pressure.


If it doesn’t rain, there will be a conceptual session for personal practice. Each participant will do it alone somewhere on the property (if it rains we practice inside the meditation hall)


To anyone willing to learn about breathing meditation according to the oldest culture of that yoga that few know.

“…but I don’t know anything about meditation, I’m a beginner”

It’s ok. Both the breathing and meditative techniques of this program are a very good option to start meditating and bring order to the mind.

“…I’m a regular practitioner, I already have experience”

It’s ok. Our approach to meditation and yoga is totally different from what is generally known out there as such.


– Swimsuit (if you want to use the pool)
– Your own towel (there are showers)
– Comfortable clothing for meditation and breathing exercises.
– Yoga mat. If you need a cushion to meditate, bring it. If you don’t feel comfortable meditating on the floor, you can use our benches.
– Optional: if you have a personal issue around which you seek clarity, this is a safe space to work on it.


In order to make meditation accessible to all, it was decided not to include meals in the operating costs. In this way, each participant brings their lunch. There are kitchens with refrigerators and basic utensils – no microwaves.

It is recommended to bring simple food to prepare, and easily digestible to avoid discomfort in the afternoon breathing meditation.

Recommendation: avoid red meat, dairy products, legumes and bread; On the other hand, fruits, non-starchy vegetables, salads, brown rice, tuna, oatmeal… go very well.

All styles are welcome: vegetarians, vegans and non-vegetarians.
