The sound and vibration of the Therapeutic Bowls have similarities to the sound heard by the baby in the mother's womb. A deep connection with yourself, a more harmonious and meditative state of consciousness, physical well-being and deep relaxation are some of the benefits of a meditative concert.
Ashtanga Yoga Easter retreat
This retreat is a tradition, and the quality of the time we spend together, with the presence and teachings of Tomas, super cozy atmosphere with fireplace, colorful nature, and great vegetarian food is absolutely wonderful.
Tomas has the gift of transmitting and inspiring his students in the practice of Aṣṭāṅga Yoga, in a gentle way, adapting it to their capacities, and because of his exceptional teaching and human qualities their courses fill very, very quickly!
This retreat is open to beginners and practitioners of any traditions.
ABOUT THE SUBJECT
"Yoga is based on a solid philosophy and profound psychology. The central core of Yoga is that it is directed not only to body and mind, but also to the realization of soul and Spirit.
Both aspects, theoretical and practical, are very important to reach the final destination. Without practice, philosophy is just theory. Philosophy provides a deep meaning and helps put into practice what has been studied. The path of Yoga begins when there is a purpose for practice. And this purpose should be no different from Nirodha (Peace). "
During this retreat we will use a wide range of practices and exercises toward self-awareness, exploring our habits, emotions, thought processes, and thus gaining a greater awareness of our inner movements.
Asanas, Pranayama, Svadhyaya and Meditation are the essential tools in this process of personal development.
On Thursday, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Arrival at Centro 4Ventos and departure on Sunday before lunch.
