Festival Theme 2017
Relax ໑ Restore ໑ Retreat
This year’s yoga festival is about pausing, relaxing and returning to your inner truth – your yoga! We invited a lot of inspiring yoga teachers who have all chosen their own path, fulfilling their own truth. Yoga teachers who all share the experience of life as something simple and good!
Existing without effort, a life in flow. The new trend in yoga is returning to Patanjali’s words of stirham suham – to practice yoga effortlessly. When we allow ourselves to do so, we let go of tensions, worries and demands, and we find a deep peace and new strength within ourselves.
Returning to Source. To the essence of being. With every breath, we have the possibility to let go of demands and embrace our very core. When doing so, we access an enormous power and an inexhaustible source of life.
A place for stillness and recovery, which, in an ever-faster spinning world, is exactly what we need right now. Pause – take a conscious breath – and just allow yourself to be.
The yoga mat is a place for being with yourself in all that you are – your body, your mind and your resistances. The yoga class offers a moment of presence and acceptance that will bring you more energy and lust for life.
You create your own retreat by choosing the yoga classes that suit you and your level throughout the day.
