“Explore and bring light to your nervous system through yoga and Cranio Sacral awareness”

INTRODUCTION

Discover how relaxation can fill you with great energy and how subtle movement can be full of healing stillness. Bring awareness to your nervous system through Yoga and CranioSacral therapy

Our unique combination of traditional Hatha Yoga, CranioSacral therapy and Kirtan (healing chants), meets in a powerful synergy during this retreat. Through our personal immersion in these systems over a long time we have discovered a holistic path to an ever deepening awareness of our self and the subtlety of our being. Our intention is for you to discover a new sense of connection to yourself and your body.

During this retreat we will explore the principles of CranioSacral Therapy and Hatha Yoga.  Each day has a different theme, to allow you to discover these two principles and how they can take your yoga practice to the next level. Our intention is for you to discover a new sense of connection to yourself and your body.

NORDIC LIGHT YOGA

The fundamentals of Nordic light yoga lies in the space we hold for you. We work consciously to create a field of allowance, love and acceptance of what is, based on Cranio Sacral principles.

Our intention is for each person to feel seen in their unique journey and to assist everyone in a non-doing way.

WHAT IS CRANIO SACRAL THERAPY (CST), AND HOW DO WE INCORPORATE IT IN OUR YOGA?

“Unwinding the patterns that lies between you and the experience of your true self, your optimal health, your real blueprint.”

Cranio sacral therapy works with a light handed touch, that when applied to the body’s geometry, enhances the nervous system’s own ability to observe itself, to make the self-corrections that will channel fluid and movement more evenly through the whole of the body. Such unwindings are registered not only by the nervous system, but also by the different systems of the body that the nervous system interacts with. This recognition allows for a new level of deep rest throughout all the layers of body, mind and emotional being.

First and foremost we infuse the shala where we practise with an almost tangible sense of presence. The presence of love, acceptance and choiceness awareness.

Unlike most yoga adjustments, which are often directive or corrective, cranio sacral adjustments are not there to impose or correct but to allow the body itself to receive a heightened awareness. We trust that your body have an innate intelligence to unfold itself back into balance and harmony and we love to tenderly and softly assist you in this natural process.

Our nervous system plays a key role in how we feel about ourselves and the way we respond to situations in life.

With a nourishing yoga practise and Cranio Sacral awareness we cultivate our nervous system to be in loving acceptance with everything that flows in through our senses, which defines how we perceive our whole existence.

A new kind of alignment takes place and we can walk through life with an open and heart-connected posture.

We have found these tools to be the oil that creates the possibility of our mental, emotional and physical bodies to run smoothly together to create a life full of grace.
