About the Retreat Program
This retreat is fully dedicated to ignite your upmost connection of body, mind and heart.
Within the practise of Vinyasa yoga and different meditation techniques you’ll get the opportunity to bring more clarity, peace and love to your personal, work, social and spiritual life.
The program is designed to:
-Re-energize and wake up the sensitivity of the body
-Explore our Shiva and Shakti energies
-Reconnect with ourselves: unlock mental and physical blockages
-Observe our thoughts and emotions to understand where they come from.
-Reset your thinking pattern and be more relaxed in your daily life
In the tantric cosmology, the whole universe is perceived as being created, penetrated and sustained by two fundamental forces, which are permanently in a perfect, indestructible union. These forces or universal aspects are called Shiva and Shakti. SHIVA symbolises consciousness, the masculine principle. SHAKTI symbolises activating power and energy, the feminine principle.
In Yoga we have the opportunity to discover the sense of oneness with ourselves, the world and nature. The experience of perfect unity of the changeless and the changeable, the dissolution of duality, is the aim of Tantra, and thus of Yoga.
