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

Time: 10:00 t/m 13:00h
With: Eveline Torres

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 Saturday
Eveline 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.

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

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

Fire is the element we add on Tuesday
Well grounded, calm and breathing freely 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.

The focus on one element each day you start to feel the principles from the inside. It will help your yoga practice to become both stronger and lighter. In four days you build up a practice using all principles together. This will help you feel more energetic and balances, free and ready for the new year.


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).
Then we do a series of asana’s.
10.00 – 11.00h sitting, vayu’s, kriya’s and pranayama.
Tea brake
11.15 – 13.00h asana practice and yoga text

Please feel welcome!

Samana wishes you all a wonderful balance between effort and relaxation in 2015.
