Shambala mid-winter is a little piece of magic, sometimes tucked in a blanket of white snow. Peaceful and quiet. You can snuggle yourself in with a blanket and a book, warm up in the floating sauna and even ice-bathe if you feel up for it!
Everything is taken care of for you, three yummy Vegan meals, a hot cup of tea is always available, and you will have plenty of sweet, loving company.
We love the wintertime here at Shambala as it holds such a peaceful stillness. This year we will dive deeper into a nourishing yoga practice that creates a reset for the coming year, we will use artistic expression as a mirror to find a vision to guide us on our path. We have a great new year’s eve celebration, with a festive gourmet buffet, special Vedic fire ritual, dance session and kirtan.
Nordic Light Yoga is oriented towards slow and deep movements, which allows your body and mind to relax, thereby releasing deep inner tension. The healing aspect of our classes happens through moments of rest and being present with yourself. The foundation of our yoga is to be soft and mindful as you move your body, allowing you to be more present to what is happening inside and coming to know yourself and your inner processes deeper.
We have experienced that this kind of mindful yoga practice can be deeply healing and a beautiful tool towards becoming more aware of yourself and patterns that create stress and tension in your daily life. With the ability to practice strength with a caring and gentle attitude, one can handle challenges with more ease.
Vedic art is a way to explore your inner world of visions, longings and emotions on a canvas. You don’t have to have any previous experience with painting. On the contrary, the less you know about how to paint the better. You will be gently guided into expressing whatever wants to flow from your heart onto the canvas.
Yoga nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage, typically induced by a guided meditation. There is evidence that yoga nidra helps relieve stress.
We are carefully following all regulations and we have an extra flexible cancellation policy should you need to cancel last minute due to showing symptoms. For more information on how we are dealing with Covid, please visit our Covid page.
