Retreat Itinerary​​

Day 1

  • Yin Yang Flow Yoga by Egon Castlunger
    • Based in Zürich, Switzerland & Brazil, Egon is a Zen Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga teacher and Musician. Through his Yogic path, his studies in Naturopathy and Chinese medicine, he developed his own style of Yoga, combining the different techniques of Yin and Yang Yoga with Pranayama (breath) and Meditation. In the last years Egon’s journey has led him to explore the sacred medicines of the amazons, working with different medicine men in Europe and South America.
  • Fresh Organic/Biodynamic Breakfast and fresh cold press juices & teas.
  • Hike to the mystical 'Es Vedra for a Guided Meditation and Intention Setting with Egon and Catherine
  • Nutritious"Treats" on the Cliffs
  • Gut Health talk & the power of juicing & fasting + Cooking Class  by Irene Arango + free recipe books to take home/download
    • ​Irene’s interest in vegan & raw food began through her search for better health and more energy. This new lifestyle worked a treat, and she’s been fascinated by it ever since!  Since then, Irene has dedicated her life to helping others find that perfect balance of good health and high energy levels – whether they wholly embrace raw food, veganism or simply add a little to their existing diet.
      Irene’s aim is to bring raw & vegan food, and all of its benefits, into the mainstream, showing just how exciting these dishes can be when using your creativity and imagination.  Opening NAMA with fellow raw food chef, Rich Havardi, in 2012, has allowed her to, happily, pursue this aim – bringing the wonders of raw food to a wider audience.  Prior to this, she had already started two other raw food ventures offering juice cleanse programmes and sweet treats which are now part of NAMA. When she is not at the restaurant, Irene remains dedicated to the raw food lifestyle, spending her days working in her kitchen creating artisanal crafted cultured nut cheeses, developing all sorts of exciting new recipes for her multiple business, working on her blog www.vivirybyme.com and oh, and taking care of NAMA’s paperwork (ho-hum).  Irene also runs raw food workshops and culinary events, to encourage and inspire more people to embrace the raw lifestyle.  In essence, she is a non-stop, raw food dynamo!  Irene believes that a diet high in raw foods and mostly vegan is not only a way to become healthier, but that creating vegan and raw food dishes allows you to use your imagination and nurture your spirit.
