We live in a society where we tend to overwork, look after everybody else, but ourselves, where we feel guilty about taking time out and where we often lack deep and meaningful relationships with others. This three-day Forrest Yoga retreat offers space to reconnect to and nourish oneself, as well as to practice self-care. The intent is to offer room to explore who we are and what we need; to simply be and also to rejuvenate.
Each day consists of a three-hour morning session where ceremony and asana are used to come back home to oneself, to strengthen the body and increase flexibility, hence creating freedom for mind and body. This is followed by a longer break where there is room to take in the beautiful landscape of Domburg by going to the beach, swimming in the sea or just going for a walk. In the 2.5 hour afternoon session the theme of the day is explored through partner work, ceremony and exercises that incorporate Shamanistic and Body Psychotherapeutic Principles.
