Ready for 5 days of deep connection in the eco-village of Loural, in the heart of a Portuguese valley.

SPANDA is considered to be the pulsating and radiating energy that comes from the absolute or supreme Consciousness (Brahman). It is also the personal energy that manifests itself in everything we do. Spanda is a joyful impulse to create harmony and enjoy life. The practice of yoga can be used to gain insight into one's own spanda and the spanda around one.

The best way to imagine SPANDA is to think of a wave in the ocean, surrounded by others and emanating from all different places at once.

It is in this magical place that we have decided to welcome you for this new edition of Jivamukti Yoga and Sonotherapy.

A unique experience to discover the power of SPANDA. A spiritual and sensory journey where sound, movement, breathing and meditation are combined.

Through this extraordinary stay, you will discover the Sonorium which is a set of modern instruments developed by the SVARAM Institute. An institute specialized in the design and manufacture of sound therapy instruments for over twenty years, located in the international city of Auroville in southern India. 

All these instruments have in common to make the link between the material and spiritual world, between the visible and the invisible

A cosmic duo to guide you



will be your guide through the sound.

With songs but also the Sonorium and ancestral instruments such as Tibetan bowls, gongs, flutes and didgeridoos.



Your yoga teacher, your guide through the Jivamukti Yoga method, the practice of Yin Yoga and meditation.

Two disciplines that inspire us

The Sound

"If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibrations touch every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our body."

"Sound plays a role in the healing equation on many levels: it creates alterations in cellular functions through energetic effects; it helps biological systems function more homeostatically; it calms the mind and therefore the body; it also has emotional effects, which influences neurotransmitters and neuropeptides, which in turn will help regulate the immune system - our inner healer."

-Mitchell Gaynor-

The Jivamukti method

The Jivamukti method is rooted in the original meaning of the word sanskirt "asana", namely "sitting, connection" - relationship to the Earth. Earth means life. The ancient philosophy transmitted in Patanjali's Yoga Sutra is that the asana is stable/firm (sthira) and joyful (sukham). Jivamukti Yoga believes that relationships between individuals should be beneficial to each other and built on a foundation of stability and joy.

This is a radical idea, which when put into practice, has the power to reverse and deconstruct the way our current society operates. The global destruction we are experiencing today is based on the idea that the Earth, animals and most humans exist only for our benefit - the benefit of a few at the expense of others, the exploitation of the Earth for selfish purposes.
