WEEKEND RETREAT 

borntorpet 2022.jpg

Four days of Asanas, Yin, Meditation and Philosophy. During these four days we will get a break from our every day life, enjoy the Swedish forest, the lake, and the beautiful food and community at Shambala. Every day the practices will have its ”take-off” from the perspective of a human trait or contradiction wich probably is present in our life. We will bounce discussions along with the yoga philosophy. Moreover we will investigate the daily topics playful asanas, still meditation, chanting and deep yin. There will also be time for writing. One evening we will also enjoy a large kirtan (mantra singing) with the whole community at Shambala. This is a real highlight! 

 

HANNA AT SHAMBALA.

– Yogic practices in modern life. 

Four days of Asanas, Yin, Meditation and Philosophy.

Perhaps the teachings of yoga sometimes seems far away, or even uncombineable with our modern lives?

But there is so much to be found in these old practices to support the modern human.

A modern life seems at times to ba about a lot of doings and functions. Such as balancing life between to-do-lists, zoom meetings, driving kids to activities and social media. In all our doings we are also dealing with our inner world. Our experienced energy level at the moment, our relationships, our inner resistance or motivation and so on. 

Our technology has been upward forward, but as human beings we very much ponder upon of the same

things, and hit road bumps that was mentioned in the old yogic texts way back. And there is a lot of clarity to be found in these texts as well as the actual practices. 

 

During these four days we will get a break from our every day life, enjoy the Swedish forest, the lake,

and the beautiful food and community at Shambala. Every day the practices will have its ”take-off” from the perspective of a human trait or contradiction wich probably is present in our life. Such as Aversion/Attachment, Control/Surrender, meeting resistance, What is the I? and so on. We will bounce discussions along with the yoga philosophy. The teachings won’t be linear, and the group might bring up what needs to be addressed. Moreover we will investigate the daily topics with various techniques, such as dynamic and playful asanas, still meditation chanting and deep yin. There will also be time for writing. One evening we will also enjoy a large kirtan (mantra singing) with the whole community at Shambala. This is a real highlight!

 

My hope is you will leave with your body challenged and well rested, your intellect infused and your mind still. Hopefully the days practices has given you a more clear direction on how you can created maintain your own home practice. If not, Hanna can support you with that. 

Retreat will be taught in English if  English speaking participants book. If there are only Swedish participants, naturally, retreat will be taught in Swedish.
