Lucia Liencres

4-8 September 2017

The word yoga means  union. The purpose of yoga is the union of body, soul and mind in order to find the happiness of living in the moment in a conscious way.
Lucia Liencres together with the Organic Sailing team created this wonderful retreat to combine the practice of yoga and healthy food with fun, disconnection and an unforgettable vacation. That’s why we offer you a yoga retreat and detox food aboard two exclusive catamarans that will sail along the coast of Formentera for 5 days, anchoring each night in a unique and different place. The program we designed includes several Daily yoga classes, healthy food workshops, excursions to idyllic enclaves inaccessible from land and much time to enjoy the crystal clear waters that this paradise island has to offer.
It will be 5 days of Daily practice, delicious detoxifying food, starry skies, unforgettable sunsets from the sea, inspiring readings and talks, snorkeling, paddle surf, virgin beaches and Formentera markets. A retreat full of magical moments that you will never forget.
From the 4th to the 8th of September

Lucía Liencres is a teacher of vinyasa yoga and she’s practicing asthanga. She studied law and spent her firsts professional years working in law and later in the insurance brokerage business. She arrived there like many others, without really questioning if it was what she wanted, whether that was her dharma or her true purpose in life. One day she decided to leave her comfort zone and gave her life a 180 degree turn.
She decided to train herself as a yoga teacher, without thinking about making a career out of it, but the changes she underwent within herself and how happy she felt each time she practiced it, gradually led her to giving more and more yoga classes until she finally left her last job and devote herself full-time to her true passion.
She has Yoga Alliance title (RYT400), yoga training for children with Christine Mc Ardle (RCYT200). She has a background as an Expert in Nutrition and Dietetic Planning from the UCM. She have gone to several meditation seminars and a course of Ayurveda (Indian medicine) and nutrition. Her yoga school on the Serrano street, 50 (Madrid) is attended by more than 150 students and she is developing a new online project with videos about yoga, meditation and nutrition in Spanish.
