ABOUT OUR THEME FOR THIS RETREAT: ART OF ADVENTURE SOULFUL EXPLORATION

Anais Nin writes, “and then one day the risk it took to remain tightly in a bud was more painful that the risk it took to blossom.” Yoga teaches that we are always evolving in the direction of happiness – all we need to do is get out of our own way. We must stop blocking the Spanda which is always blossoming. Spanda is a Sanskrit term for the subtle creative pulse of the universe as it manifests into the dynamism of living form. Another way to think of this is from the beautifully written book Yoga Spandakarika (Song of the Sacred Tremor) by Daniel Odier in which he writes: This is the most difficult thing to attain: accepting the freedom of movement, the creativity of life, understanding that a fixed state, as marvelous as it might be, is not compatible with life.

Join us on this retreat to unlearn and unblock the habits that are holding you back from your best life. Come be part of a place and experience that opens you up like what Krishna Das describes, “Grace wakes us up when we are asleep, brings light to where there is darkness and removes obstacles from our path”.

Practice making your life an adventure in a way that keeps you connected to your core inspirations and desires. And come away from this week feeling radiant! “The awake heart is like a sky that pours light!” – Hafiz

  1. Hello! I really want to practice yoga with you, but I have an house there, so is it possible just do lessons?
    Thanks

  2. Ciao Silvia! Like Vanessa, I also live near Ischia so all the fun touring activity is something I get to do everyday (I know! Lucky us!). Can you provide a little more detail about the retreat content other than the touring activity? I heard about the retreat via the MindBodyGreen post on happiness & fitting in… so I’m curious whether the retreat also features classes/workshops on these topics. Thanks!!!

  3. Dear Silvia,

    I’ve been away from my yoga practice for about a year due to an injury. Is the level of yoga appropriate for someone returning to their practice?
