Urban Retreat Samana 27 till 30 December

27/12/2016 at 10:00-30/12/2016 at 10:00

Between Christmas and New Year a mini-retreat for yourself.
Enter the New Year full of energy and well balanced.

Dates: Join us for one or more mornings
Tuesday December 27 till Friday December 30

Time: 10:00 t/m 13:00h
With: Dick Langenberg & Marta Font
At: Samana, Next to Central Station, Centre of Amsterdam.

4 mornings, each day another element
Each day we focus on one element: earth, water, air and fire.
In Yoga each element represents a different aspect of yoga practice. You can take de knowledge of these elements home and use for yourself any time the coming year. Those who come all four mornings  can use all elements at once at the end of the mini-retreat, experiencing physical and mental balance. In four mornings the yoga practice will broaden into a deeper, more intense and lighter flow.


Earth is the focus on Tuesday
The teacher will help you focus on grounding this first morning. Using surprising variations on classical asana’s you will experience the grounding better. When you are well grounded you will see that this trusting the earth will make it easier to lift from the ground. Your asana’s become lighter.

Fire is the element we add on Wednesday
Well grounded we can safely add fire to our practice today. We move into an energetic flow of asana’s. The fire, like flames reaching high, will help us elongate and connect al parts of the body. Experience how arms and legs reach past the body and are connected to the world outside.

Water is the focus on Thursday
Now you are well grounded and the energy of the flow is activated, we add the water element. You can concentrate on fluency of movement, cultivating the quietness that water can bring in both mind and body.

Air is the focus on Friday
Well grounded and quiet in mind and body we will concentrate on breath this last day. We will experience different breaths and the effect they have on your practice. You will notice how mindful breathing helps your poses to be more balanced and easy. Your breath becomes your friend.

Elements of practice each day

We follow the Vijnana yoga Principles.
Each morning we start with sitting, cleansing (Kriya’s), Vayu’s and Pranayama (breathing).
