Yoga, Meditation, Art and Nature Retreat

Welcome to a weekend of exploring yoga asana, meditation, mindful movement,drawing and nature. 
We'll gather to experience how we can try to stay intimate with life as we enter into the darkest part of the year. That will be the thread that will connect our work together.
We will investigate ways to support the changes and keep moving into what is happening, observing and creating awareness around it. 

From the 3rd to the 5th of November in the beautiful Hellasgården, come and give yourself the great gift of presence.
There will be nice vegan food from Vivo Sthlm and possibility of free access to the sauna in the free time. 

Ida Arvids and Giulia Sansoni are two passionate yoga teachers with great curiosity of rediscovering the potential in our bodies, realigning beyond traditions, redefining the perfect movement for the body from within, starting from trusting the breath. Both of us are practitioners of meditation from a mindfulness,zen angle. 
Emilie Lindsten is an artist, yoga practitioner and meditator. Her practices have helped her find balance in the everyday and have evolved and merged into a holistic and playful approach to life. The workshop will be in connection with the other practices and it´s named "Lines of light through the dark - an intuitive exploration on paper".  She will guide you through a series of exercises of pure creative expression. The aim of the workshop is to observe our own inner energies and voices that will arise in the act of drawing and let our own intuitive potential unravel. The workshop is open to beginners and advanced artists alike. Group exercises are to be expected.
