Urban Yoga Retreat with Flo Dedame

02/06/2017 at 17:30-04/06/2017 at 18:00

We are happy to welcome our senior Vijnana Yoga teacher from Canada, for her yearly visit.

Friday June 2, 5.30 – 9 pm
Saturday June 3, 9 am – 1pm  &  2.30 – 6 pm
Sunday June 4, 9 am – 1 pm  &  2.30 – 6 pm

This year our journey with Florence Dedame, guest teacher from Canana, is truly an ‘urban retreat’ where yogi’s with 2 years or more experience and yoga teachers join to research and deepen their own practice at our Amsterdam yoga center.

As part of the urban retreat we suggest you to eat a diet of fresh fruits, vegetables, some proteins and grains starting one week before the retreat. This will help you to fully profit from the retreat.

The road to mastery.

Flo Dedame: “There is always more to let go. In this retreat you will discover new ways to move in relaxation and unity.”

What will we do?

Flo will direct and inspire you on a journey to look for the natural action that does not involve struggle or excessive effort, to find motion that comes with relaxation. We are looking for a way to practice yoga almost as a way of not-doing, a concept that in the Tao tradition is named ” Wu Wei “.


The structure of the practice during the Urban retreat includes the practice of the vijnana yoga pillars and elements:

Breath – Pranayama
We balance our energy channels through the practice of alternate nostril breathing- Nadi shodana. We purify our energy channels through the practice of Kapalabhati (shinning skull) & Bastrika

Just Sitting
In vijnana yoga we “just sit”, with little explanation on how to sit, we cannot succeed and we cannot fail.
 In this state of not knowing, the mind reaches at times places it would
 never meet if it were busy with a technique and with ambition.
“Let the sit, sit.”

Asanas and tensegrity
During the course of our weekend together, we will move through the postures and asana’s in flow practices, visiting standing pose sequences, arm balancing, backbends, forward bends, inversions and some new material in the tensegrity series.

What will it bring to you?

  • This weekend is a great opportunity to practice with advanced yogi’s under a skillful teacher. It gives you the opportunity to really grow in your yoga practice.
  • More understanding of Wu-Wei, the concept of doing without effort, in natural balance of body, emotion and personality.
  • You will learn to surrender the lower part of the body to gravity. This gives back a lightness that liberates the upper part of the body.
  • You will learn more about the tensegrity series. A way to wake the deeper and more subtle muscles to work in unity with your bones structures.
  • Movements increasingly will take place from the spine rather than in the large superficial muscles that are accustomed to work .
  • All the time we keep our focus on the wholeness of the movement.
