“Dance your yoga from inner stillness to exploratory movement and let your movement be your meditation and liberation”
“Come with us at this restful and magical time with yoga, freemove, meditation, sharing and workshops in a fantastic environment. Everything is One, and you are part of it! ♥
Freemove is a concept that combines conscious dance, dynamic meditation and yoga in a playful, exploratory and present way. It is based on the idea that your body knows exactly what it needs and what is best for it if you are given the chance to listen, feel and explore in a safe and secure context.
We focus on being in the presence when we flow and explore through our free movement and the yoga asanas give us a chance to land deeper into our beings. We work with different themes during the workshops and along with yoga and dance we also invite dynamic meditation and shaking meditation. The shaking gives you a chance to literally “shake off” what no longer serves you and you will be given insight into who you are right here right now and where you are heading.
You will experience the feeling of freedom in different forms and you are safely guided through all feeds. The purpose of the retreat is to raise your inner potential and increase your body awareness which together gives you a stronger sense of self, power and insight into who you are and what you want and get you more present in the moment.
No previous knowledge needed before you join, come with an open heart and open mind.
Earlier participants have described their experience with words like:
JOY , FREEDOM, SPACE, ENERGY, STILLNESS, TANTRIC, HAPPINESS, GRATITUDE, PEACE, POWER, RELEASE, THE TRUTH, ECSTASY, SATISFACTION
We will also leave space during the retreat for you to relax into the beautiful and healing surroundings of Shambala.
