This Retreat is all about finding back to your inner self. Escape from your daily routine, allow yourself to withdraw and leave your stress behind. Take a complete timeout to finde back to your roots.
When we practice Yoga, we regain a part of the responsibility for our well-being. This increases the feeling of being able to do something for ourselves; to have the fate for ourselves and for our health in our hands.
Yoga as a cure for psyche, nervous system and the body in general, is an early anticipation of many discoveries that medical research (especially in psychoneuro immunology) has gained over the last few years. Especially with respect to the mental patterns that support our health or its damage.
During this retreat you not only have the chance to practice twice a day and work on your Asanas (postures), you also will be given methods that will help you to deal with stress in everyday situations.
You will learn how to handle stressful situations with not letting them affect you in a negative way, to listen to yourself and your body. Besides you will be shown how to become aware of yourself and how you can create enough time for yourself in your daily life when you get back home.
To round the retreat off, extended beach walks, good and healthy food, wellness- and ayurveda massages and many more will help you to find back to your basics.
This Retreat allows you to withdraw yourself, experience inner silence and enable the spirit and the soul to be switched off, then to start fresh and well-rested in a reflective everyday life.
The morning sessions are composed of energizing and re-vitalising Hatha Yoga to strengthen and tone your bodystructure and -posture.
In the Happy Back Sessions we concentrate on postures to support a healthy and natural bodyposture and a strong healty back. During Open Your Heart Sessions we learn postures and frequences to open our chests, release tension in our heart regions and support a well-being. With the Hip hip hurra Sessions we practise postures to open our hips. In addition to the benefits of improved range of motion and circulation and decreased back pain, opening the hips can create an energetic shift or release as well. Opening the hips gives us access to freedom in the body and in our own unique expression — creatively, physically and spiritually.
Sundown Yoga Sessions:
With deepening Yin Yoga, we reach out to the fasciae structures, connective tissues and joints of our body. With relaxing Yoga Nidra Sessions, we take your personal time out, let all the stress go and just be aware of yourself in the present moment.
Meditation & Pranayama:
Not every way of meditation is equally effective and relaxing for everyone. Therefore, we will get to know and practice different ways of how to meditate.
Prana means expansion of life force or breath sustaining the body; Ayama translates as “to extend or draw out.” Together the two mean breath extension or control. Traditionally, though, the practice of pranayama—releasing and channeling the body’s stores of internal pranic energy—has been seen as the core of hatha yoga practice. Pranayama is meant to nurture a high level of bodily health and mental clarity, both of which are crucial steps on the path to self-knowledge and a wholesome, authentic life. Because Pranayama is an advanced practice, it should be practiced after having an advanced stage of Asana practice. Because our Retreats are made for students on every level, we will have an insight into Pranayama and mainly concentrate us on Yoga breathing excercises to clean and strengthen the entire respiratory system and to balance and relax ourselves ( e.g. Kapalbhati, Anulom Vilom).
