Nieuwjaarsretraite Kroatië: 29 december 2020 - 3 januari 2021
Get ready for the best finishing touch to the incredible 2020 and most profound start of the New Year 2021 with the retreat at Surya International Yoga Study Center!
Topic of the New Years retreat is: Attachment.
Why are we binding ourselves with others? How important are other people in your life? Are we social beings, or do we need others only when lonely?
What makes us social beings vs. individuation? And what does it mean that we are all one?
These topics and more will be discussed and worked on during our time together. The program will be guided in such a way that each of you will have the opportunity to understand your own beliefs, patterns, habits and behaviors. Once you understand, you have the opportunity to keep it the way it is or set stepping stones towards the change you wished for.
Full moon in Cancer will be exact on December 30st. Full moon shines a bright light on what we need to look at. Cancer energy is all about emotions. Let us use the immense power of group energy to face the emotions this lunation might bring up so we will enter the New Year more free. More conscious. More authentic. With a better understanding of ourselves and our needs in relationships. Ready for deeper and more fulfilling relationships on all levels.
We like to welcome you at our brand new and cozy retreat center, away from your everyday obligations. In a pleasant, safe and caring environment, where everything you might need is provided for you. It is a very special place due to the alignments we made according to the vedic architecture (vastu). This means that everything in the house, including the entrances and the windows are placed in the way which provides the purest energy. Energy which supports better grounding and connection to the source through which we can have deeper meditations.

The morning practice is dynamic and challenging Hatha yoga. We are discovering the possibilities of the body and play with the physical/mental borders. Always with respect for what is possible or not. The challenge is to play, not to reach the final pose. We will talk about the logic behind the poses and of the body, the effect and the purpose of the practical part of the Ashtanga yoga. What is the cause of limitation and how can we overcome this limitation. Why do we function the way we do. There is a perfect philosophy which is based on ages of experience of the yogi’s. The afternoon practice serves as a preparation for meditation and the sitting pose. It focuses on opening the hips and the pelvis. We will dive into the philosophy of the yoga practice and due to that we will understand what meditation is and what it can bring us. It is a journey to our inner self.
Questions are always welcome and the lectures are interactive.
This retreat will be a challenge for those who are already practicing for a while and are looking for more. Those who are curious about the background of what yoga really is. Those with serious medical problems should consult a doctor for advice.
