JULY 30-AUGUST 02.2020
Ashtanga Yoga & Mindfulness Retreat
This weekend will be an opportunity to retreat and have some time apart from our daily routine. We intend to share how we bring yoga into our daily lives. To share our lifestyle as an ashtangi family, our habits and practices. How to develop a sustainable practice, that nourishes and permeates into all aspects of your life.
One of the most important concepts we’ve been developing in our retreats within Thich Nhat Hanh tradition, is to learn how to relate with others and see ourselves reflected in each other and learn how to see the engagement in action as an opportunity to deepen our practice.
We will have daily sessions of seated meditation in the morning and evening but we will also share the practice of walking, eating and working meditation. This working meditation will be about we, as a group, will be in charge of cooking some of the meals. No service but workgroup. We can all bring to the table our different bits of knowledge about food, nutrition, and traditions. Let’s learn to cooperate and work as a group.
The day will be divided between Ashtanga yoga Mysore-style sessions, pranayama and study/talks in the afternoon. There will also be plenty of time to rest, relax, and enjoy the art of doing nothing. Make time in our lives, create space in the body, silence in the mind to learn to deeply listen to what’s inside and around us.
Workshop fee, vegetarian/vegan full board & accommodation in a 3-room or double room: 360 euro.
