About the retreat:
A yoga and meditation practice suitable for all , with or without previous experience.
Guided by a teacher with over 14 years of expereince of teaching yoga.
A practice inspired by vanda scaravelli and meditation sessions where you will be encouraged to lie down to meditate.
Each day there wil be early morning meditation, morning and afternoon yoga sessions. With plenty of free time for rest or walking/hiking in the gardens and the forest surrounding, or go and bathe in the nearby river.
The yoga sessions will begin with a gentle invitation to open up the body and then gently explore and deepen into posture, breath and meditation through the weekend.
An awakening of the dance of the spine for a deepening into the posture to emerge and unfold. Cultivating inner strength, clarity and vitality.
Inviting you to embrace much more than just ‘doing’ the posture , nourishing a deep listening to the wisdom of the body : where we are kinder , more patient , more present to ourselves and the body responds by softening, opening and the postures open to us.
With this opening to our deepest nature , a tuning into the inner , gathering guidance for autumn return. Holding the intention in this deep listening to gather and plant the seeds of your intentions for this new phase.

With plenty of time in the day to enjoy free time , immersed in the inspiring natural surroundings , rest in the gardens, go for a walk through the forested autumn mountain landscape or to the nearby river.
I will offer short periods of silence to allow an arrival into deep rest and connection. In the surrounds of deep nature , silence is a gateway into deeper connection to presence. Participants often find that rather than shutting out the world the gift of silence offers a discovery of a sense of deeper ease and connection with others and life around.
All yoga and meditation classes will take place in the beautiful Sala a room with heating to be able to receive groups all year.
