about the retreat

In this 4 day reatreat we are going to enjoy fiery and active asana work in the morning as well as paying special attention to the subtle body in the afternoon and evening.

We start the mornings in beautiful nature with a meditative walk in silence followed by 30 minutes of pranayama practice. Pranayama is discribed to be the fourth limb of the eightfold path of yoga and translated either as "the control of breath" or "the expansion of breath". Prana is the Sanskrit term for the vital life force and energy that runs through our bodies and that holds all things together. Prana makes things move and grow and vitalizes our mind. The practice of pranayama can help to increase this vital life energy in our bodies and balances the nervoussystem. There will be a lot of time to dive deep and explore different breath- and restorative practices and becoming more aware of the subtle energies of the pranic body. The seated work is followed by an active and flowy asana practice where we move and sweat and experiment together.

After the deliscious brunch there will be time to explore the beautiful mountain region in a guided or single afternoon hike before we meet again for a restorative Asana and Pranayama practice. After the yummy dinner we will end the day with Metta Meditation. 

"Practicing Pranayama can open a door into a state of steady focus, quiet and calm, a continuous state of self-awareness that goes beyond witnessing. Merging into the experience of self as prana. Pranayama practice is like a road that leads you home. Once you arrived at home, you leave the road behind an go inside. Pranayama brigs you to the doorway of meditation, the native home of your own mind and heart."

There is no need of having lots of experience in the practice of mediation and pranayama, we will work on different approaches and there will be room for your questions and answers. If you join the movement classes it is recommended to have basic knowlege in Asana. It is also possible to only praticipate in the meditation and pranayama classes.

The retreat will begin at 3.30pm Friday July 30th and End at 12noon Monday August 2nd 2021.
