 Reconnect with Yourself

Yoga & Meditation Retreat 

Slovenia

3rd - 9th July 2020

NAME / JOB / TITLE

Breath of Life

I breathe in All That Is

Awareness expanding

To take everything in,

As if my heart beats

The world into being

 

From the unnamed

Vastness beneath the

Mind, I breathe my

Way to wholeness

And healing

 

Inhalation. Exhalation.

Each breath a “yes”, 

And a letting go, 

A journey, and a

Coming home

 

~Danna Faulds

Create time and space to tune into your breath, free your mind, nurture your body and reconnect with yourself.  This week long retreat, held in the mountains of Slovenia, will help you press the reset button within.  Set on 23 hectares of lush organic farm land with enchanting woodlands and wild meadows, this energetically charged space is the perfect getaway to rejuvenate the senses and recharge your soul

 

Partake in sunrise meditation, a rigorous morning vinyasa yoga to energize you, daily self-nurturing activities and restorative evening yoga practice to help you sleep like a baby.  Breathe in the fresh mountain air as you enjoy the natural swimming pond with magical valley views.  Join the group or venture out yourself on scenic nature walks along special energy vortexes.  All activities are optional as it is time for you after all.  There will also be guided visualization and journaling, a cleansing fire ceremony, yoga nidra and a deep sound healing journey 

Morning yoga and meditation sessions will take place outdoors alongside the natural pond overlooking the alpine mountains.  In the evenings, sessions will take place indoors, in a well equipped studio with endless valley views.

 

Become reacquainted with yourself on an inspiring journey through nature, where you will be able to tune out in order to tune into yourself.  Our surroundings will help us become more present, as we strive for in our yoga practice
