Equinox Yoga Retreat
A retreat under the sign of balance and equality to bring together light and darkness, outer metaphor of our inner-world.
During this weekend, we will explore and cultivate harmony, this beautiful dance between duality and unity, darkness and light. Equinox is the perfect time of the year to become aware again of the balance created by nature, while keeping in mind the impermanence of everything. Through the whole range of yoga asanas, from the standing postures to the restorative ones, with inversions, twists, and partner postures, we will develop a safe yoga practice, thanks to the optimal alignment of the body, in tune with a deep breath, in order to start our inner-quest toward unity.
Meditation and mindfulness will allow us to go deeper into this spiritual tantric journey. We will become aware and accept our inner-darkness, but more importantly, we will cultivate gratefulness and awareness of our sense of duality, to eventually accept that separation and division are an illusion that prevents us to recognize and become who we are.
Beginners or advance practitioners, this retreat, apart from a deep connection to yourself & others, will give you the opportunity to prepare yourself to activate a new growth cycle by honoring your harvest – the fruits of all your good and hard work during this year. Like the natural cycle of a seed is to become a seed again, it’s time for you to be, to be yourself, in your purest essence.
