The Wave- Yoga retreat
Yoga is a time to move inside, touch something new and unexpected.
Time to listen to our inner world and time to open to the beauty around.
Time that expands and widens, delicately: we will pick up the blossoms.
"Movement is the song of the body, This song, if you care to listen to it, is beauty.
We could say it is part of nature and the body goes with it like a wave in the sea".
Vanda Scaravelli, Awakening The Spine
As we let go of ambition and holding, when naturally connected to Earth and Sky, there comes a joyful ripple that rolls from feet to head and from head to feet.
It brings vitality, awakening and discoveries, endless freedom to be transferred to different postures and Asanas. The same beautiful wave can accompany and enlighten our time while sitting and breathing.
During the retreat together, in Faran, for these three days, we will prepare the ground for the very subtle oscillation, wave-like movement, to step in and support our practice. The unfolding of the body will go along with the unfolding of the breath supported by a slow and meditative approach.
Exploring the wave, with infinite time at our disposal, in all possible yoga positions and breathing rhythms will bring us closer to it.
The sessions will incorporate some Feldenkrais movements towards facilitating a playful and different experience of yoga positions.
The retreat will be held in Faran, Israel, at Rotem's- desert hospitality in the heart of the Arava, on Thursday, March 9th at 17:00 till Saturday, March 11th at 14:00.
All content will be in English!
