EMBODIMENT RETREAT SEPTEMBER 2023
YOGA, MEDITATION & CREATIVE MOVEMENT IN BIO-AKTIV HOTEL, GRAFENAST, TIROL
Thursday, 21. through Sunday, 24. September 2023
Enjoy the awe inspiring Karwendel Alpine Landscape of Tirol, Austria while discovering your own possibly unexplored inner terrain with sitting and walking Loving Kindness and Mindfulness Meditation (Maitri/Metta), and strengthening your body awareness through energetic, invigorating, OM Vinyasa yoga. Part of the program is to tap into the instinctive movement patterns of the body in a playful way, to free them up and to make our inner bliss tangible through Creative Movement. Time and Space for true Regeneration and an invitation to dive deeply into Nature and this exceptional Yogic Experience....
Daily practice of a longer session in the morning and more compact sessions in the late afternoon and evening, invites the practitioner to delve into his or her yogic practice with a sense of joy, ease, and celebration. There will be plenty of free time for extended hikes in beautiful mountain scenery, sauna & hammam, a relaxing massage ...time to reflect, rest, or just marvel at the calming natural landscape.
The offer is ideal for those seeking deep rest and regeneration, to take a breath and recharge. In her workshop, Anina von Molnar responds very individually to the course participants, regardless of how familiar they are with yoga, meditation and creative movement. Attentive to each individual ́s needs, Anina works very personally with corrections, both verbally and through example as well as with hands-on adjustments. The workshop is therefore suitable for beginners as well as advanced practitioners.
In the retreat, Anina sensitively combines yoga asanas, breathing exercises (pranayama), creative movement and insight meditation as a means of deepening embodied awareness.
In her Hatha Vinyasa Yoga classes, Anina focuses on precise alignment of the yogic posture combined with a deep, flowing breath. This creates the base as she moves the class towards specific Asana sequencing synchronized with this rhythmic breath. The classes, building on the physical, emotional and mental momentum, make greater strength, flexibility, balance and energy available. The body and mind, with newly discovered vitality, have the opportunity to detox, heal, and make space for new creativity.
Mindfulness meditation and metta practice are other important elements of the workshop. In mindfulness meditation and metta practice "[...] we cultivate the inner quality of mindfulness or mindful awareness on the one hand and the quality of loving, compassionate serenity on the other," is how Fred von Allmen describes it. "In meditation we want to engage directly and immediately with existence, with the experience of each moment, to explore it. [...]" Our mind's awareness is guided via Meditation sessions toward the openness of the moment: in our bodies, in our breath, in the Now of our presence.
Anina's Creative Movement is characterized by the use of gravity, balance, momentum and surrender to open and discover new forms of expression. The flow of movement using the power from our own organic breathing and the core of our individual body dynamics is liberating and enriching. The intent is to enable a harmonious, holistically oriented quality of movement by deepening our body awareness. We learn to rely on our own body wisdom.
