Bhakti Yoga Retreat – Swiss Alps
25 July 2016 @ 14:00 - 31 July 2016 @ 12:00
I invite you to a wonderful journey deep into the Swiss mountains and even deeper into your heart. My beautiful second home in Switzerland… near Locarno. Please read the information below and let me know when you’d like to join this special yoga retreat.
After a steep walk up the mountain (astonishing views!) we will arrive in our little hide-away; a beautiful private ashram where yurts, treehouses and stone houses are built against the sunny hill side, close to Locarno. In the heart of the ashram you’ll find a little stone house with temple room, kitchen, toilets and bathrooms and a beautiful veranda with magical view over the Swiss Alps. We will cook our meals on wood in the cozy authentic kitchen, from home grown vegetables, flowers and organic ingredients. Down the hill you can find the powerful creek, with velvet banks allowing you to follow her curves down the mountains. Her fresh water is ice-cold and straight from the source.
Here on this magical place that is built and maintained by Bhakti practicioners (completely in harmony with nature) we love to introduce you to the path of Bhakti Yoga. Bhakti is the path of devotion and invites you to put love, God, or however you want to name it in the centre of your universe and dedicate your actions to it. For a higher goal like this, Sadhana or spiritual practice is needed. During the week we will offer you spiritual topics to reflect on, insights and a different perspective to look at life.
Every morning we will start in silence with meditation and a Hatha Vinyasa yoga practice on the platform on top of the hill, followed by breakfast. One day will be completely dedicated to deep silence. In the afternoon we provide a yoga philosophy session and in the evenings we will do yin yoga, sing & make music and share our insights and experiences.
There will be enough time for to be with yourself and reflect, write or just be and breath. After this week you will walk off the hill, completely recharged with a little piece of paradise in your heart. We invite you to share the fruits of this little Bhakti paradise and make the world a better place!
