Bhakti Yoga Retreat Switzerland
July 29 @ 12:00 - August 4 @ 12:00
Let us take you to the Swiss mountains
and dive deep into the heart of Bhakti Yoga
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 and a beautiful veranda with magical view while we enjoy the most amazing vegan meals. We cook on wood in the cozy authentic kitchen, from home grown vegetables, flowers and organic ingredients. Down the hill you can find the magical creek, with velvet banks allowing you to sunbath dip in her ice-cold water.
Bhakti yogis have created this little paradise not only with their bare hands but more important with a Bhakti mindset. Bhakti is the path of devotion and invites you to put love, God, or however you name it in the center 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 with Vinyasa yoga on the platform on top of the hill, followed by mindful breakfast. The mornings and one full day will be dedicated to sacred silence. In the afternoon we provide yoga philosophy and in the evenings gentle restorative yoga. After dinner we make music and chant mantras together, and share our insights and experiences. And we will make a couple of spectaculair hikes in the astonishing surroundings, with a little bath in amazing creeks
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 with a piece of this paradise in your heart. Take it home, share the fruits and make the world a better place!
