RADIANT´S MINI ESCAPE RETREAT
with CAMERON MACINNES
& SARA MARTIN BLANCO
11 – 15th OCTOBER 2018
LA HACIENDA, GRANADA
Take time away from ordinary daily life and tap into a deeper part of yourself with Sara and Cameron. Refreshed from within, these five days will allow you to become inspired by a deeper intuition guiding you to live life more abundantly and joyfully. Awaken your senses with powerful yoga practices, Hatha, Yin, Meditation, Kriyas and Pranayama (breath work), delicious local vegetarian food and the perfect natural surroundings in the beautiful Andalusian countryside near Granada. Enjoy its countless nature trails through olive groves, wheat fields and pine forests, and watch as the birds swoop down to bathe in the cascade amongst the banana and palm trees.
You will notice some profound shifts as you embark on a journey within yourself. This retreat will help you to restore and reset body, mind and spirit by diving deeper into the teachings of yoga.
“Ha” means sun and “tha” means moon so the hatha practice helps us to balance our “masculine” and “feminine” aspects, finding equilibrium. During the practice you will build strength and flexibility. This asana practice cultivates focus, and helps to clear the energy pathways in the body bringing it to a sense of alignment.
Yin yoga is a practice that works the connective tissues (fascia, ligaments, tendons and bones) of the body.It is a soft and passive practice that requires slowing down so we can surrender the body to gravity and enter a state of self-inquiry and contemplation. It is an asana and meditation practice all rolled into one, that helps to release and clear the energy pathways of the body.
PRANAYAMA & KRIYAS
When practiced under correct guidance, pranayama and kriyas have a powerful healing and cleansing effect on the body. The sensations which can be created through these techniques will bring you into a space of inner peace.
Receiving the tools to enter a blissful state of stillness, you will be able to feel how the benefits of a consistent meditation practice can extend throughout your day!

I unrolled my mat for the first time at the age of 17 and since then my practice has never left me. I began as a curious student and naturally progressed with my studies to become a certified 500H Yoga Alliance Teacher. My passion for yoga and its many facets is infinite. It has taught me to LOVEFULLY, to have fun, to keep things simple and to experience movement as true medicine.
I have studied under many inspiring international teachers such as Meghan Currie, Chris Chavez, John Friend, Desi Springer, Tina Nance, and Elena Brower. I like to weave different styles and approaches to working with the body, mind and spirit into my classes.
