Get ready for the best finishing touch to the incredible 2021 and the most profound start of the New Year 2022 with the retreat at Surya International Yoga Study Center!
The topic of the New Year's retreat is MEDITATION.
We like to do our best to prepare you and guide you through the meditation process-journey to your true inner self!
We will do that through specific asanas, breathing techniques, proper diet, connecting with nature and its elements, mindful conversations, lectures, thorough explanations about the meditation technique and all the details you might be confused by or curious about.
We are very excited to host this retreat since every step before meditation (yamas, niyamas, asanas, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyan) are only preparation steps for Yoga. Yoga starts with stable intellect, Samadhi.
Let's see how far we can climb on these stairs by being humble, supported by the group energy, under divine guidance at this beautiful event.
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.
Through this program, you will get to understand what meditation is and what it can bring you. It is a journey to your inner self.
If you feel like it's time to seriously rethink where your life is headed, you will have the opportunity to sit in silence with yourself under guidance. We will make sure you are well taken care of. You will process. Contemplate. Meditate. And be ready for making steps towards the life which truly serves your purpose.
The new moon in Capricorn will be exact on the last day of the retreat. The energy of this new moon will support your fresh new start of 2022.
We like to welcome you to 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 a way that provides the purest energy. The energy which supports better grounding and connection to the source through which we can have deeper meditations.
