You know you have it. It is right there and wants to come out and be heard: your intuitive voice, your inner teacher, and your ability to follow your heart and speak your truth freely, whatever happens. Let yourself find that beautiful voice of yours this summer at Rustic Yoga Retreats and get you in touch with your whole chakra system, especially the throat chakra, Vissudhi. Come and open up to your voice. Find your truth and sing it out!
The accommodation comes in the form of beautiful yet simple well-equipped bell tents with beds and electricity. You will be spoiled for choice for ways to rest and relax. You could take a dip in the refreshing swimming pool or lounge lazily in the hammock area while taking in the beautiful views. Why not pull up a sun lounger in the shaded terrace and enjoy one of many books or board games? And at the end of your day, after an invigorating workshop, you can head past the almond trees to the lovely wooden meditation cabin with breathtaking views over the valley.
Beautifully furnished bell tents are simple yet sumptuous. With comfy beds and crisp, fresh linen, it will be a luxury glamping experience you will never forget. As you lay your head down, let the sweet scent of the nearby lemon and orange groves carry you off to sleep as you doze under the glorious, star-filled sky. A truly blissful way to end your day.
As a totally off-grid yoga retreat, Rustic Retreats has lovely, solar-powered showers, or if you prefer an amazing outdoor shower block, you can literally shower under the stars.
They provide you an Internet connection and the bell tents come ready with solar electricity.
The morning will be a powerful practice, based on Hatha or Vinyasa yoga. Energizing breath, mantra chanting, and fun cleansing techniques help you find your own expression in various postures. This practice will stimulate the chakra of the day and help you tune deeply into your own body and find precious tools to strengthen, stretch, release, and take care. Prepare to fall in love with your toes, find immense power in your breath, and marvel at the force of your whole being. Evenings will bring a huge sigh of relief in a yummy practice inspired by gentle Hatha Flow, Yin, or Restorative yoga.
A block here, a blanket there, you will get cozy and relaxed. You will enjoy the freedom of soft movement. Other times, you will see what happens when you let go and spend ages in one position. You might even completely doze off in deep realms of yogic sleep (Yoga Nidra) and wake up like a whole new you. Evenings, you will get together for a Bhajan and fill the whole Bagend with beautiful mantras, music, dance, love, and joy. This type of practice follows the devotional path of Bhakti yoga, opens up your chakras, and gets some serious sunshine into your soul.
Each day will be dedicated to one or two chakras, balancing them through a set of Hatha yoga practices. In the morning, you will get the juices flowing and wake the chakra of the day with a related meditation, pranayama (breathing), Kriya (cleansing), and asana practice. Evenings will seal the deal as you meditate on the specific chakra. You will relax, soften, and release any tension associated with it. Flowing through the whole chakra system during the week is where the last bits of tightness dissolve, where you breathe deeply and feel completely free.
You will add an extra touch to balancing the chakra system by focusing a bit more on Vissudhi, your throat chakra, the center of communication, self-expression, and integrity. How many of you suffer from some sort of tension in the neck or the trapezius muscle? How often do you actually follow your heart, instead of trying to please someone else? That is why this week, you are going to learn how to speak Vissudhi. Fluently.
As your main focus will stay on the throat chakra get ready for some mantra magic, your Vissudhi will rise and shine thanks to your morning chants, it will thrive and find its balance in daily workshops, and then blissfully join its wonderful energy with others, as one, during your evening Bhajans. So, do not forget to pack your ukulele, drums, wooden sticks, kalimba, tambourine, or any other sound-making thingie, and come find your voice with Rustic Retreats. There will be one workshop a day. It may be in the morning or afternoon.
The first workshop will focus on the first two chakras which root you in your body, your basic instincts, and emotions. Tune in: Do you find stability and support easily in your life? How do you feel in your own skin? How do you appreciate your body? How do you deal with strong emotions? How do you respond to change? Do you allow yourself pleasure?
There will be a lot of pleasant grounding and self-acceptance on day one. Strolling through the beautiful nature surrounding Bagend, looking for abundance all around and within, and then allowing this abundant energy flow through your hands and feet, as you get in touch with Pacha Mamma - your mother Earth. Let yourself wiggle the toes in the sand, play, create, cherish the body, move freely, and feel absolutely supported.
Are you shy or self-confident? Do you often feel full of energy or most tired? How active are you? Is your digestive fire working properly? Hello, Manipura, the hidden gem behind your navel. Here, on day two, you will get to love your belly unconditionally. Manipura is a solar plexus chakra, the center of your strength and confidence. You will tap into this strength through a series of Hatha yoga practices, which you will learn and take home with you so that you can always access your inner power.
On day three, you hit the jackpot and unfold the voice. Do you follow your heart or your mind? Do you accept yourself fully? Do you find it easy to forgive? What is your truth? Do you live, think, and act in alignment with your truth? Is anything keeping you from expressing it freely? As you tune into Anahata, your heart chakra, you will find the abundance of love, acceptance, and compassion.
Vissudhi, the throat center of communication and self-expression, will unfold your truth, your inner voice. This is the day when you listen and connect to that more deeply. You will write some stuff down, let go of burdens, and start noticing the clear signs of the voice carefully. Your voice has a very specific way of talking to you through your heart.
Do you feel connected? Do you trust the universe? Do you live in the present moment or constantly worry about the past or future? Who are you, truly? With the higher chakras, you let go of the body, let go of the thoughts, and dive deeper. You will float on the waves of Nada Yoga - yoga of sound and vibration. Om chanting and the deep relaxation of Yoga Nidra with Tibetan singings bowls that will bathe you in heavenly vibrations and carry you to the deeper layers of your mind. Feel free to explore.
You will close the week with a discussion on how to use the whole chakra system not only to find your voice but to nurture it continuously so that it grows stronger and aligns you with your heart-felt purpose and desires easily. This is how you invite unlimited abundance into your life. You will celebrate this abundant energy and all your voices in a fire ceremony with Bhajan, singing mantras together, burning away all doubts and obstacles, and transforming the last bits of old stagnant energy into a new power flow.
