Invoking age old rituals such as gathering around the fire, when we get to share our stories and experiences, as well as exploring the ritual of conscious, ceremonial dance as we journey through our chakras as we move.  Allow yourself to surrender and be guided on a nurturing dance journey by our host Dee Koprivc (N ô m a d e e)  the founder of Supersoul.yoga, followed by a sacred frequency sound meditation by Julia. This high vibrational evening of dancing and singing together is envisioned as a special celebratory offering of our shared journey in Croatia.

This retreat is open to all levels of practitioners – from beginners to advanced.

Program

Our week long program consists of 6 morning practices and 3 rich afternoon workshops. Each morning will start with a short guided meditation to connect to the three dimensional breath and then to the breaths directional flow through the spine. You will be introduced to the “Sanskrit Counted Method” of Ashtanga Vinyasa and either counted through a practice or guided and assisted through a “Counted Self-practice”

Julia & John will share a variety of techniques that quickly transform the individual learning so that each practitioner connects with their own inner Guru.

Afternoons will focus on opening the power of enquiry/curiosity to dive deeper into the exploration of Yoga Philosophy, the Breath of Life and the transformational power of Sound.

Evenings are for ritual of deep heart connections: sharing yummy food, gathering around the fire, drinking cacao & sharing, singing and dancing together.
