handpan & Yoga retreat
Sam Maher & Mauro D’Arcangelo
24 - 30th May 2020
Immerse yourself in a full week of transformative yoga, combined with the unique opportunity to attend an exclusive daily Handpan workshop with the inspiring artist Sam Maher.
This week is an invitation for you to reconnect with yourself and creating space for your essential needs and to unfold your inner creativity. Enjoy daily vinyasa inspired yoga classes to give room for your body & mind.
Together we will spend the week in Portugal's Southwest Atlantic Coast, bordering Algarve in an amazing soul retreat centre surrounded by acres of forest. Orada is a family run, eco-sustainable, community based, paradise nestled in 71 ha of nature and privacy, created with the aim of expanding health and proposing transformational moments. The wild beauty of Portugal is the perfect location to feel connected to all elements and to gain clarity for one self.
The one week Handpan workshop with Sam allows a rare glimpse into his creative process as he guides you through the foundations of the instrument and equips you with the essential building blocks you need to create movement and melody.
These workshops are open for complete beginners and experienced players alike. Divided across two groups and taught in seperate sessions, beginners will start from the ground up and finish with the rhythmic skills necessary to approach the handpan with ease, while experience players will discover how to perform on the handpan with emotion by diving deep into composition, chord structures, and advance techniques.
Good to know: If you do not own a handpan or are not able to bring your own we will provide you with one. At the end of the retreat you will have the amazing and rare opportunity to purchase the instrument brand new - no waiting list, no shipping costs.
