Shanti Project (in Italian)

19-26 August 2023 (40 CEUs)

Marsala- Baglio Cudia

Join Ameriga for an unforgettable immersion in the world of Yoga & Conscious Living. This is not your typical yoga retreat, as it includes plenty of multi-style yoga practices, meditations, embodied rituals and ceremonies, and daily workshops satsang on self-development.  

During the week, besides from grasping some important concepts related to yoga, Eastern Philosophies, and Astrology, you will learn and practice tools 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. 

To give you the opportunity to practice the teachings, during the week you will be challenged by two non-ordinary experiences: rock-climbing and apnea.  If you feel scared just hearing about them, great! The experience will be even more empowering. 

If you are in search for relaxation you can find plenty of it in our stunning ancient masseria. Those who’d like to explore the region, will find some amazing sights in Western Sicily.

Course program

The day will start at 8 AM with a pranayama or meditation session followed by a 2 hour Vinyasa Flow. Expect creative, slow, deep and intense sequences, leading to a peak pose, and garnished with Indian philosophy, psychology, immersive music and kirtan. Ameriga has a reputation for taking her students’ practice to the next level, so prepare to explore postures that you might have only seen in books, in a safe and functional way.

If you are a seasoned practitioner you will thoroughly enjoy the new challenges, and if you are new to yoga you will feel always included and supported in trying out new postures. 

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.

You will also learn about astrology and the basics of reading your birth chart,

Please note: every year Ameriga offers different self-development workshops, so if you joined her in the past, expect something new.

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), or a relaxing Yin Yoga session and meditation.
