Yoga helps you strengthen your body, open your shoulder region and deepen your breathing. You also learn simple methods you can use to help you sleep better and relax with your baby.

Classes on Wednesdays are for mothers with little babies. Start the course when you feel ready to begin practicing yoga. It can be as soon as 2 weeks after giving birth. Little by little, babies and toddlers learn to respect your yoga practice. And you learn to relax with the presence of your baby.

There is no age limit for babies/toddlers. Many toddlers are eager to imitate yoga movements and you can bring a yoga blanket for the child, too.

INTENSIVE MEDITATION WEEKEND WITH WILL JOHNSON

6-8.10.2017

Friday 17-20, Saturday 9-12 and 13.30-16.30, Sunday 9-12 and 13.30-16.30.

Fee: 180 €

 

In the practice of meditation, what we do with our body is every bit as important as what we do with our mind.  The primary focus of this intensive sitting retreat will be in exploring the conditions of body that transform your experience of meditation from one of painful bracing and struggle into one of comfort, grace, and release.  As foundation for the practice, we will first work to establish the three primary somatic principles that have been shown to support the posture of meditation:  the alignment of the upright spine, the deep relaxation of the body, the allowing of subtle motions throughout the entire body in resilient response to the force of breath.

As a foil to long hours of sitting, there will also be a great deal of movement work—from traditional walking meditations and spontaneous movement exercises to dynamic yoga and breathing practice.  If you’re new to sitting meditation, this retreat will give you the necessary foundations on which you can continue to build your practice.  If you’ve been meditating for many years, but feel as though you may have hit a wall in your practice, the retreat will show you why and introduce you to a completely natural and relaxed way of sitting that can deeply catalyze and reinvigorate your meditational inquiry.

Will Johnson is the founder of The Institute for Embodiment Training, a teaching school that views the body as the doorway, not the obstacle, to evolutionary growth and spiritual opening.  He is the author of a number of books about the role of the body in Buddhist and Sufi practices including The Posture of MeditationBreathing Through the Whole BodyEyes Wide Open, and Rumi’s Four Essential Practices.

The weekend is an unique opportunity to meet Will Johnson. This retreat is one of the two retreats he will give during his trip to Europe next autumn.
