Joogaloma tai'anomaisella Sri Lankan saarella

Tervetuloa mukaan itsemyötätunnon joogalomalle tai'anomaiselle Sri Lankan saarelle. Ei vaadi aikaisempaa kokemusta joogasta.

Tämä joogaloma soveltuu kaikille jotka kaipaavat pysähtymistä ja haluavat löytää lempeämmän ja myötätuntoisemman suhteen omaan itseensä. Voit halutessasi yhdistää joogaretriittiin surffaustunnit tai surffauskurssin. Tämän joogaretriitin opetuskieli on englanti ja suomi.

Loving Kindness –teema & joogaharjoitukset

Joogaretriitin teemana on Loving Kindness, itsemyötätunto, ja aloitamme jokaisen aamun itsemyötätuntoa vahvistavalla ja rakkautta lisäävällä meditaatiolla.

Tulet tutustumaan tällä lempeyden joogaretriitillä embodied joogaan (yin ja hidas Flow jooga), somaattiseen liikkeeseen ja shaking medicineen, tantrisiin meditaatioihin ja itsemyötätunnon loving kindness eli metta meditaation erilaisiin versioihin.

Lisäksi teemme alitajuntaan sukeltavaa intuitiivista kirjoittamista jonka tarkoitus on vahvistaa yhteyttä omaan intuitioon. Intuitiivinen kirjoittaminen on myös hyvä keino siivota ja jäsentää omaa mieltä.

Majoitus yksityisessä, +1200m villassa rauhallisella paikalla idyllisen laguunin äärellä. Villa on varattu kokonaan vain joogaretriitin käyttöön. Aloitamme aamut hitaalla Flow joogalla ja itsemyötätunnon meditaatiolla uima-altaan äärellä, iltaisin kokoonnumme villan kattoterassille tähtitaivaan alle rentouttavan yin joogan äärelle. Päivät on varattu vapaaseen oleskeluun, päiväretkiin ja rentoutumiseen. Halutessasi voit tilata hemmotteluhoitoja ja hierontoja joogaretriitin villalle.

Ryhmäkoko on max 13 henkeä, varaa paikkasi ajoissa.

Yoga

You'll discover yourself through yoga (embodied slow flow & yin yoga), meditation, intuitive somatic movement, shaking medicine & intuitive writing. You will also learn practices inspired by tantra.

We are starting the days with meditation, pranayama breathing practices, intuitive writing and slow and gentle flow yoga by the pool (you don't need previous experience in writing, we all write just for ourselves).

During the day you can explore the beaches near by, go surfing or snorkling, visit villages next to Hikkaduwa or participate on our day trips. Or, just lay low in the beautiful backyard of our villa, surrounded by quiet lagoon.

Luxurous private  villa

We are staying in gorgeus villa surrounded by peaceful nature. The villa is reserved only for our yoga retreat group. There is a big pool on the backyard and also direct access to the lagoon. We start the day with slow flow yoga & loving kindness meditation + journaling by the pool. In the evening we gather together to the rooftop to practice relaxing yin yoga under the stars.

If you want, you can order treatments & massages to the villa.

The group size will be small, maximum 14 participants so make sure to do your reservation in time.
