Creating Space 1.0

Yoga Retreat with Eleonora Zampatti

Reconnect to nature, slow down and rediscover your true potential, both in your body and in your mind. Join Eleonora Zampatti on a 3 night, 4 day discovery into creating space and reconnecting to your power amongst the magical land of Joshua Tree.

Eleonora will be offering long workshops designed to create space in our body and by doing so, discovering how strong we are. Each class will start with a warm up (functional movement + pilates) before moving into a flow to connect breath and movement. After the flow we will reach a peak pose and work on a posture clinic followed by guided meditation (yoga nidra + sound bath).

This retreat will be themed around cleansing, rebirth and magic – and creating space to allow this deep profound healing. We’ll hike Joshua Tree National Park and experience a healing sound bath at the renowned Integratron, enjoy delicious food prepared by a private chef and share in stories and laughter with new friends.

Yoga Workshops

Power Within – Arm balances & Inversions (120 mins)

An empowering Arm Balances and Inversions workshop where we will learn the foundations of crow pose and forearm stand in a fun, unique and empowering way. A special class designed to find the courage to face your fears, deepen the connection to your core, flip your perspective and find self confidence in your yoga practice!

Ode to the Moon – Yin to Vin (120 mins)

Expand your hip mobility with this functional workshop. We will create space and loosen up tight hips. The goal of this class is to create freedom of movement to help counteract the effects of our sitting-focused lifestyle. We will work on variations of lotus. A new playlist is ready for this class!

Rock your soul – Backbend from your Heart (120 mins)

This class will help prepare you for a safe and sustainable backbend practice. You’ll work into your hips, shoulders, and spine to help open up your front body and bring new awareness into each space. We’ll warm up the body with functional movement and pilates inspired drills followed by an intelligent sequence designed to open the body to be able to backbend. We’ll end with a posture clinic: wheel pose and bow pose.

Creating Space – Flexibility & Strength (120 mins)

Work on opening the back chain of the body focusing on hamstrings and the lower back. We will also open the chest area to release tension from the neck and shoulders. After a warm up, flow and drills, we will close the class with an Acro Yoga play shop.

With nearly 800,000 acres of mystical beauty, Joshua Tree National Park is undoubtedly one of the world’s most incredible natural desert treasures. Sweeping, grand in scale and populated by granite monoliths and voluptuous rock and boulder formations, the park offers wonder to eco-travelers, outdoor adventurists, and naturalists. Two large ecosystems come together to form this quiet land, conducive to meditation and roaming.

Our retreat home sits atop 4 acres of desert land, complete with multiple communal areas, hot tub and games room, plus lots of space to roam.
