In this retreat there will be yoga and meditation, noble silence, reflective dialogue, inquiry and sharings. You will leave being recharged in body and spirit!
We will do Brahmani-style yoga, a hatha yoga flow-style which is playful and emphasizes curiosity. Leaving strict forms and poses behind – it doesn’t matter how it looks, only how it feels. We will do breathing practices (pranayama), plenty of mindfulness meditations and spend time in the beautiful nature around Shambala Gatherings.
The practice of yoga and meditation will be infused with ”The work that reconnects” a method by eco-philosopher and Buddhist-activist Joanna Macy which is used to build Resilience and Creative Power as we are facing the many challenges of the world. Joanna Macy calls it Active Hope.
It will also be spiced up with sessions of Brahmani Sacred Dance! Don’t worry by the word “dance”, all it means is meditation in movement with music. It will be an allowing and safe space to build a deeper sense of embodiment and energy.

“Being able to invest in yourself and your well-being through Gunilla’s warm and wise guidance in the mix of yoga, meditation, poems that spoke to the soul and Active Hope, was lovely and something that has lingered even today several years later. I can really follow the wisdom of how the course was built up so that I, as a course participant, could land within myself on a deep level and then turn my gaze outward and face the world from an Active Hope towards the end of the course.
Can wholeheartedly recommend Gunilla and what she creates – everything is like balm for the soul!”
“I would like to warmly recommend Gunilla Lönnberg as a yoga teacher. With warmth an humor, she leads us into yoga, everyone participates according to their ability and everyone feels included!”
