The day will begin with a flowing and dynamic asana class in the light and airy yoga space. After the morning session breakfast will be served on the terrace. The afternoon sessions will vary to include; exploring nature through the lens of the medicine wheel, preparing the sweat lodge and restorative yoga classes.
The sweat lodge is an ancient native ceremony which has been used since time immemorial for purification of body, mind and emotions.
It helps to reconnect with the earth and to awaken old memories and connection with nature wisdom by using the 4 elements.
It is considered by native people as the song of the Earth. It has been an element in ceremonies for many different tribal communities all over the world ( south America, north America, Europe, Scandinavia, Mongolia to name just a view)
During the lodge ceremony the lodge keeper calls on the wisdom inspired by the 4 direction to guide visualization, chants, prayers, set intentions and reflection for all participants.
In a safe and gentle environment you will have the opportunity to leave the old behind and direct energy and intention to the new.
A sweat lodge is a covered round structure made from wood. Stones are heated in a fire and places in a hole in the middle of the lodge to creative a sweat lodge, a natural sauna.
