AN EARLY SUMMER YOGA RETREAT: TIME TO BLOSSOM
Our closed heart is like a lotus flower that blooms thanks to the virtues that grow within it such as Purity and Great Inner Beauty. It has the ability to remain pure despite living in muddy waters. For this reason it is used in Yoga as a metaphor for the path of growth, from life’s difficulties through the waters of experience to realisation.
Type of Event
GENERAL PROGRAM Friday and Saturday
14.30 free time / sauna / massage
(Thurs & Sun reduced program)
We will celebrate Summer’s arrival by practicing yoga and meditation, walking in nature, giving ourselves time to rest, and as the grand finale to the retreat, dancing with Federica Casol to express our flourishing colours, our talents and our uniqueness.
Annabella Fairtlough will lead morning and evening practices inspired by the theme of the lotus flower’s story, the sacred symbol of Yoga and of divine illumination. An experience suitable for all ages and levels, even for beginners.
Each day, after a nutritious breakfast, we will set off on foot to the heart of a forest or the peak of a mountain, observing what is outside but also within ourselves. The picnic will be a moment of relaxation, after which we will return to Fornesighe to fully enjoy the rest of the afternoon wrapped in the warm atmosphere of the Dormì & Disnà, before the evening practice. Delicious vegetarian dinners will be served in the centre’s cosy little restaurant: Nona Gió.
