Our next retreat – 19/10 – 21/10 2017
About our Yoga and Meditation healing Silence Retreat:
Join us for a journey to the secrets and magic of awakening through the practice of Yoga Dharma and Mindfulness Meditation in the beautiful surrounding of the Arava desert.
Through Mindfulness we aim to experience and inquire the relation between body, mind and breath, the way they influence and mirror one another, and to open ourselves to our senses, feelings and mental movements, through all daily activities.
The Yoga Dharma practice is approached from the Iyengar yoga method and meditation sessions are guided with basic instructions in mindfulness meditation.
During the retreat we will keep most of the time in silence for the quiescence and serenity of the mind, and for raising our sense of perception and sensitivity. We'll be close to mother earth, nurtured by the wind, the sun and the loving peaceful space, and eat healthy vegetarian organic food.
The Yoga practice will be approached from the Iyengar tradition and classic Hatha yoga.
The meditation sessions will be guided with basic instructions in Mindfulness meditation for the purpose of developing calmness of mind, focusing on bringing meditation into our daily life – our actions, our feelings and our thoughts.
The workshop is suitable for everyone, beginners and experienced yoga and meditators, and for Hebrew and English speakers.
