Retreat Package

1 morning yoga PrCTICE 

Our daily morning Yoga practice will be a Vinyasa class based on Ashtanga Yoga. This powerful practice is rooted in Hatha Yoga and characterized by dynamic transitions that bring deep breathing and movement into a harmonic flow – a meditation in movement. A truly wonderful way to start the day. There will be enough time to start slowly with breathing exercises (pranayama), and complement with meditation practice and proper relaxation. 

 

​2 afternoon yin yoga

Yin Yoga targets different layers of the body and mind. We will learn all about the aim and the benefits of this slow and grounding yoga practice. We will learn how to practice in a way that is safe, while staying longer in the postures. We will explore how to stretch and stress the body in a yin way. We will learn which meridian lines are nourishing the female sexual and reproductive organs based on TCM and target these body regions, as well as use some acupressure points that support menstrual health and menopause symptoms.

3 workshops

 

Ayurvedic & TCM Self-Care    Ayurveda is an ancient Indian medicine system and the sister science of Yoga. In this workshop the wisdom of Ayurveda will be introduced, that is specifically important for health, vitality, and wellbeing of women. Additionally we will handcraft our own massage oils and learn Ayurvedic face oil massage techniques (how to use Guasha stone and cupping)​

 

Thai yoga bodywork     

In this workshop we will learn and practice Thai-Yoga bodywork techniques, that can be applied with your dear ones at home. We will focus on techniques that relax and revive the area around the pelvis and lower back, and lead to high relaxation levels

pelvic floor & Yoni Egg       In this workshop we will talk about female anatomy, as well as the importance, health and training of the pelvic floor. Yoni Egg will be introduced as a wonderful tool not only to train pelvic floor muscles, but also its use for meditation and reconnection with the yoni and discovery of all the potential for sensuality and sexuality. We will also prepare the yoni eggs for the upcoming Womb Wisdom ritual.

4 womb wisdom & Yoni Egg ritual 

This ritual is a safe space to establish sacred connection and communication with your yoni and womb. In this strong, guided group process you will be invited to connect with your body, your sensuality and the incredible wisdom of your womb. Worshipping the divine Feminine that finds its expression through you and your body. Who nows, maybe some of your questions will be answered on that evening?

Everything in this space is welcome, but nothing is obligatory. You are encouraged to listen to the needs of your body and respect your boundaries. 

5 Chanting circle

 

During this gathering we will explore the world of Bhakti Yoga - traditional chanting, singing from the heart. When voices come together singing mantras and sacred medicine songs, magical spaces can be opened, meditation happens naturally, and even shifts in the state of consciousness are possible. No singing skills are necessary - only openness to experience the connection between the vocal cords, the womb, and the heart.

6 sensual movement

During this dance workshop we will dive into sensual movement - the art of sensual embodiment, expressing our unique sexual energy through movement and dance. After warming up and practicing some dancing techniques , we will work on a short choreography and finish with free movement/ecstatic dance. No previous dance experience is necessary.

nikoleta - web ready - draft 1 -32.jpg

Nikoleta will guide you through the Yin classes, and the Ayurveda and bodywork workshops.

Nikoleta was introduced to Yin yoga and Tantra yoga a few years ago and since then her teaching style has evolved in a new way. She teaches primarily these soft and gentle yoga styles, combined with breathwork and meditation.

These yoga styles are soft in nature, they might even seem unspectacular from the outside. The practitioner experiences them as very powerful and partly challenging. They enable us to turn the awareness inward and learn how to relax and to ground ourselves.

Nikoleta has 600 training hours in Yin yoga and is certified in Tantra Yoga and Meditation. She compliments her passion for relaxation techniques with training in thai-yoga bodywork and she is an Ayurveda nutritional coach, specializing continuously more on women’s health and wellbeing.

230904_Justyna_sensual (212)_edited_edited.jpg

Justyna will be leading the morning yoga classes, sensual movement, chanting circle and guide through the womb wisdom & yoni egg ritual.

Justyna has over 700 hours training in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, is a certified meditation and Hatha Yoga teacher, dance teacher, conscious kink educator, and Reiki therapist. She has her background in academic research and worked in the area of molecular medicine for over five years. Science helped her understand the biochemistry of life, but it didn’t answer most of her questions about human nature, consciousness and spirituality.

Her calling and curiosity brought her to India, where she was studying Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga after many years of self- practice with different teachers.

In her teaching she combines modern scientific research, ancient eastern traditions, and her personal experience to help people reclaim their body wisdom as a gate to personal growth and healing.
