You are invited to our annual summer YogaSOMATICS and Mindfulness Retreat in the beautiful Il Giardino Incantato. Ateeka and Ola offer introspective and self-development teachings in the heart of nature . . .
In a small garden . . . on an ancient island . . . together we touch into inner energies of LIFE as-it-is.
Welcome to a summer retreat in nature for who wishes for five dedicated practice days of introspection, stillness movement and meditative practices in a connected group setting.
Morning sessions guided by Ateeka, will be dedicated to yogaSOMATICS, myofasical unwinding, breathwork, inner exercises, deep relaxation, stillness meditation and somatic bodywork in partners.
The final part of the morning will be spent in an inward drawing/artistic expression session, where we can put what we may have discovered in our movement, meditation or dreams . . . out onto paper, to be seen and felt.
Afternoon sessions guided by Ola, will be dedicated to exploring symbols, messages and energy that emerges from your drawings. One-to-one feedback, meditative inquiry, mindfulness meditation and inner exercises help to give a way to integrate and circulate the new energy that you discover through your drawings.
In our friendly environment of self-development, you do not need to be an artist or a yogi to participate. :-) This retreat is about making contact with our inner energy, inner life, inner resources . . . bringing them into the light of awareness . . . and learning to contain and circulate this new found energy in our daily lives.
Approx. 6 hours of guided practice daily.
ABOUT THE LOCATION: This retreat will be held in Ateeka and Ola's mediterranean olive garden in BOSA on the West Central coast of Sardegna. Our practices take place on an outdoor shaded terrace overlooking a green valley. The garden is "off the grid" and we use candles for light at night, simple camp kitchen gas cooking, solar showers, well water. Solar power is available for charging cell phones, computers, reading lights, etc. All participants will camp in shared luxury tents or simple single tents.
