Winter Solstice Celebration: Get cozy and give a life to your future intentions! Yoga – Meditation – Setting Intentions – Sweet treat preparation
About this Event
For many of us this has been a tough year, full of uncertainty and constant changes. We had to learn how to recreate ourselves again and again in many life and personal aspects. It’s essential to also remember, that all these past challenges also helped us. To search for a new healthier directions. To accept changes. To get more in touch with our inner resources… to grow as human beings.
And here we are today, with our feet crossing the final line of this year, maybe a bit tired, maybe excited about what the future brings.
We put together this special event in order to help you to conclude this year, to reflect, let go with gratitude and to open yourself to what you wish to welcome in your life in the upcoming year. This all in a norturing and relaxing atmosphere of support, understanding and celebration of your unique being.
And we did not choose this date by accident-the upcoming Winter Solstice (21st of December) means for many old cultures the meaningful time to give a heartful farewell to matters we don’t need to hold onto anymore. At the same time it is a right moment to open ourselves to a new beginnings, to set our intentions and wishes.
We would like to warmly invite you to spend this half day with us, to nourish yourself with yoga and meditations, breathe the life into your dreams with special workshops, to have fun while preparing a sweet treat for yourself… and to celebrate in the warm company of like minded people.
We are very much looking forward to spending this special day together with you.
Peter and Amanda

Revitalising Yoga Flow
A gentle revitalising and nourishing Yoga practice to open the mind, body and heart for this retreat. This flow will release tension in the body and energise the mind, leaving you feeling revitalised!
Amanda combines both Yin and Yang styles of yoga to bring balance into your practice. This session will suit all levels, including those new to yoga and options will be given to support everyone, so you can just enjoy and focus on having fun!
Yoga Nidra& Salkalpa
Yoga Nidra translated is ‘Yogic Sleep’, it is a deeply relaxing practice, where your body rests and your mind remains alert. In Yoga Nidra you leave the waking state and are in the magical, deeply meditative state between sleep and awake. It is like that relaxation part at the end of a yoga class called Savasana, but longer and more restorative. Yoga Nidra is a practice of feeling, sensing and experiencing… whatever comes up.
In Yoga Nidra you set a Sankalpa, which are positive statements, or intentions. You are invited to bring to mind a positive statement, a short phrase or sentence and repeat this 3 times in your mindseye in the present tense. This positive statement can be a feeling, a future goal or deepest desire (within you), also be referred to as a ‘resolve’ or ‘intention’. The idea is your Sankalpa can be used to remove ingrained habits or imprints in the psyche that hinder or hold us back and bring in positive intentions. It is said that using a Sankalpa you can overcome any obstacles.

Amanda loves to bring an element of all practices into her classes, so you can learn and explore with each session.
