Happiness. Let´s look at that.
How often have you said, “I just want to be happy”? And said to someone else, “I just want you to be happy”?
There is a lot of value to pause and explore around what happiness really is and means? Both as an intention as well as an individual growth.
Happiness is when your life fulfills your needs.
In other words, happiness comes when you feel satisfied and fulfilled. Happiness is a feeling of contentment, and in yogic philosophy Santosha is explained as the key gateway to spiritual growth and individual happiness. How does one get there? Is it even possible? What is the path? Or method?
Perfect happiness of enlightenment may be hard to achieve, and even harder to maintain, happiness is not an either /or case. There are nearly limitless degrees of happiness between the bliss of enlightenment and the despair of depression. Most of us fall somewhere between, either becoming more goal-oriented and dissatisfied, or falling into a laissez-faire glorification. Contentment is a practice of balancing attention and surrender, having them equally present in every moment. In this retreat, we will set out on a journey towards individual contentment.
During this retreat we will explore if ancient wisdom and yogic philosophy can inspire us to gain some light on the matter and also adapt our asana practice, breath work and meditation towards attaining sharper focus and awareness. Towards discovery. Discovery of needs, patterns, yearns in search for freedom, grace and joy. It will be a happy quest to say the least.
The techniques we will be using stems over Chakrayoga, Vinyasayoga, Hathayoga, Restorative practices, Pranayama, Ayurveda and meditation.
Every morning starts with a flowing, sweet yoga class followed by a guided meditation. In the afternoon, we will deepen the yogapractice through more tension releasing practice alongside with pranayama.
