Yin Yoga Inner Quietness Retreat

18 - 23 October 2020

What it is

This is a unique opportunity to experience a retreat in a beautiful and safe environment.
There is plenty of opportunity for personal attention. Finding your inner light to be connected to love, peace and quietness in heart, mind and body.

The objective is to create more awareness of your body, mind and soul. You will get a better insight in how you feel, recognise your limits and discover the core values that truly matter to you. With these, you will be able to take better care of yourself, become pro-active in taking the right actions to prevent that you deplete your energy and understand how you can strengthen your physical, emotional and spiritual power in daily life.

This retreat is especially valuable for:

  • People who want to take a step back from their hectic lives, find inner peace and have time for self-reflection.
  • Yoga practitioners who want to deepen their yoga practice in a holistic manner with intensive and tailored guidance from an experienced teacher.
  • People who want to restore or strengthen their inner energy by working with the chi, body, mind and spirit.
Yin-Yang yoga is a unique style of yoga in which Skadi brings together the best elements of the different body arts; Astanga Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Movement Therapy (Mensendieck), Yin Yoga and Chi-Arts. The Yin-Yang yoga will help you to create the optimal balance in your yin and yang energy and to reinforce your chi.

In addition to the Yin-Yang Yoga sessions, the program of the retreat includes Yoga Nidra and Meditation. The Yoga Nidra sessions are focused on deep relaxation of the body including, for example, guided body scans.
The meditation is focused on creating a peaceful mind by sitting still, looking at your thoughts and emotions, while focusing on the breath.

Level of experience required
The retreat is open to everybody – no specific levels of experience is required.
