The Yoga program 

 

This retreat was designed to restore your body, mind and soul, and to bring your desires to manifestation. The best time of the year to to this work energetically is the Spring Equinox. When every element of nature is bloomimg into new begginings. We will be have balanced practices of movement and inner work meditation practices.

 

Get into your body with a morning flow, Hatha-Vyniasa, combined with meditation and pranayama practice to set the tone of your day. We will move on a dynamic sequence of postures but also take some time to align, to feel the body as a whole and connect to the energetic benefits.

 

Think about mindful movement, having fun in your body, to feel connected with your breath and energy as a whole. At the end of the day, unwind, relax and restore… with Restorative and Yoga Nidra practices. Besides the physical practices Reiki and Multidimentional Therapy will be incorporated in the afternoon classes, creating everyday magical sessions. 

 

You will feel replenished, clear minded, rested and in pure awareness.

 

Besides the morning and afternoon classes we will offer 2 workshops during the retreat:

- How to set your goals

- How to make your goals blossom into manifestation.

 

On each workshop we will dedicate two hours to explore the neurological and pshycological impact of some practices, how to use them, how to remove blockages of old belief systems and how we can create our own reality.With exercises of  meditation, art-therapy and timeline-therapy combined we will start bringing your desires forward to manifest.

 

Diet

Our local chef Fabi will prepare our meals with locally grown vegetables and other local products and fruits. With an Ayurvedic inspiration and lots of love.

We will serve a variation of hot meals and raw salads, but also some simple westernized light dishes. All food is vegetarian and there are lots of vegan options available. Try Shamballa home made bread and shakes.
