RETREAT

 

DEEPEN & BUILD YOUR OWN PERSONAL PRACTICE

BODHINI YOGA ONE WEEK MINI INTENSIVE RETREATS

We warmly invite you to explore Yoga with us.

During our time together we provide a schedule and create a space that will nurture a genuine and fulfilling inner practice during your time with us. 

Bodhini Yoga retreats are designed to deepen your understanding of your practice. Why is it we do the things we do in Yoga? Often in our sparse weekly practice it is difficult to comprehend what it is we are doing in our mat.

As well as twice daily meditation and yoga sessions,  our 2 hour afternoon technique and anatomy workshops are aimed at clarifying any doubts so that you can move forth with confidence and complete presence in your practice.

Each day after the workshops,  we also spend time selecting and modifying the postures that are most beneficial to you, weave them flowingly together into your very own personal sequence,  tailored to your body, your mind, your spirit, so that you can take home a practice that you love.

We look forward to sharing the heart of yoga and its deeply healing benefits with you all.

Retreat Daily Schedule

free donation based yoga retreats

Morning meditation

30-60 min

Together we will journey through various techniques to understand what it means to concentrate, open and direct the mind towards self enquiry and presence:

Tratak (Candle gazing)

Japa (Internal mantra)

Single pointed focus, absorption

Mindfulness, calm abiding

Self enquiry

Breathwork

Morning dynamic vinyasa practice

60-90 min

As we flow together, we utilize the gift of awareness to open and expand in all areas of our being. The Uayi breath calms the mind and generates internal awareness and physical heat. Applying Bandha (internal body locks) retains our energy within and deepens the breath. Dristi (centering our gaze) stabilises and focuses our mind. Finally, the gift of vinyasa reminds us in each moment to flow with complete presence, that is, to simply Be.

Technique, alignment & anatomy workshop

2 Hr

Our afternoon workshops systematically take a deep look at physical alignment and movement techniques, with reference to relevant anatomy. 

We also dive into the energetic principles that help to unify and bring the posture to life and we demonstrate how to modify in a way that still fulfills the purpose of each posture. 

On top of all these tools, which are necessary to create a safe and rewarding practice… we always reinforce how to fulfill the real meaning and essence of Yoga.

Build your own personal practice session

1 Hr

Each day we work to explore and select the best posture for your body after each workshop and slowly weave it together in a beautiful flow that will have you rolling out your mat each day.

Gentle Yin and Restorative practice

60-90 min

We gently unwind into the evening and surrender body and mind into a deep state of presence once again. In Yin, we really learn what it truely means to let go, to be at peace, to be in radical acceptance of our whole being, to love ourselves as we are.

Evening Meditation

30-60 min

Everything in the universe is a vibration of sound. We must simply learn the right way to listen in order to unravel all of lifes mysteries. In the evenings, we explore beautiful sound meditations and cultivate the art of listening with the heart.
