#RETREATS BY MIND BODY ALCHEMY
STAGNONE LAGOON | august 20-27, 2022 | IN ITALIAN
This retreat will be held in Italian.
In this retreat you will be offered much more than just yoga.
Join Ameriga for a week of Yoga & Self-Development. This is not your typical retreat, as it includes plenty of multi-style yoga practices, meditations, embodied rituals, and daily laboratories and satsang on self-development.
During the week, besides from grasping some important concepts related to yoga and Eastern Philosophies, you will also learn about Western modalities of conscious relating, such as non-violent communication, NLP, and Mind Body therapy.
This intensive course is a great immersion to the world of yoga and conscious living, and you will leave with practical tools to bring back into your daily life.
Ameriga (ERYT500, MA Yoga Studies, Master NLP, Life Coach) has crafted a transformative program, by creating an alchemy of body and mind practices that draw from Eastern traditions and Western Wisdom.
Part of the transformative power of this retreat is that you can join the group in some powerful group activities. You are invited to “say Yes to everything”, because when you say Yes to everything, anything can happen to you.
If you have never been on a retreat with Ameriga, feel free to get in touch and speak to her in order to see if this is the experience that you need.
In the morning you’ll start the day by practicing pranayamawhich will keep you energy levels high throughout the activities of the week. This is followed by a two-hours level-2 vinyasa flow class, usually centered on a peak pose. The class always offers a reflective theme, and immersive music and kirtan.
The morning classes always tend on the challenging side and provide a great balance of both strength and flexibility work. If you are new to yoga, you will feel included and supported in approaching the practice, whereas if you are a seasoned practitioner you’ll feel challenged in new and surprising ways.
After the morning class you will share a wonderful home-cooked breakfast with the rest of the group, and then you’ll have some free time.
Generally the participants of the retreat hang out together for the rest of the day. We will create a whatsapp group a few days before the start to coordinate transportation and the possibility of splitting a car rental with the other participants. We highly recommend this in order to visit the stunning sights of the Trapani and Palermo provinces and also to go to the beautiful beaches of the area.
In your free time you can also learn to kitesurf, as we are right next to Europe’s top kitesurfing spot. Alternatively, you can enjoy hanging out at the beach bars and do “kitesurfers-watching”, as many PRO athletes train in the lagoon and it’s a show to watch!
In the evening we will meet again at 5 PM for a class/satsang during which we’ll explore yoga philosophy, buddhism, conscious communication, notions of Transactional Analysis, narrative coaching, NLP, and Mind Body therapy.
At 6 we’ll go back to our mats for either a workshop on a family of posture (such as inversions, backbends, handstand, arm-balances and so on), a relaxing Yin Yoga session or a group coaching session. This is followed by an evening meditation, or group sharing.
A delicious plant-based dinner will be served at 8 PM every evening at La Portazza Resort.
In this retreat you are encouraged to have as much fun as possible, so if you wish to hit the dance floor, there will be a number of opportunities to dance by the light of the moon shining on the lagoon at some memorable beach parties.
Throughout the week you’ll join some very powerful embodied ceremonies. In some of these you will be required to share something about yourself. The process of exposing your vulnerabilities and pain is profoundly healing and you will receive lots of support by the rest of the group.
There is one day off from the yoga activities during the week. On that day we’ll go rock-climbing in San Vito lo Capo with a local guide, and we’ll meet for a beach ceremony at sunset. If you have never climbed before or if you are scared of heights, this will be a very powerful experience and you will be prepared, empowered and supported to go beyond any self-limitation.
You are super-passionate about yoga and self-development and want to take your practice to the next level, learn lots about yoga anatomy and philosophy and simply feel good in your body.
You want to transform how you live. You are stuck in a routine that is not fulfilling, you feel trapped in a life that is not how you want it, you forgot what living in a light and fun way was like. You’ll leave the retreat completely transformed, full of energy and momentum to do whatever you want with your life.
You have been feeling lonely and disconnected from other people and want to be part of a supportive group of conscious people who are working on themselves.
You are ready to be challenged on and off the mat: this will boost your resilience and give you clarity and purpose.
You are ready to SAY YES, even when you are exhausted, even when you are scared and even when your inner voice says NO.
