Come to Salento with us! We are happy to spend a week with you. Here s what it might be like:
First thing in the morning (possible after a sweet swim in the pool), we will salute the sun ascending over Salento, stretch mind, body and breath after the journey to get here and then settle into a practice helping you to arrive in beautiful Agricola Samadhi. The practice will be gentle yet energizing and rewarding, preparing you for the days to come.
In the morning sessions we go through a sequence of asanas gently increasing pace, depth and smiles throughout the week. There will be options and variations so that each practitioner can adjust the practice to his needs. Knowing and accepting that these needs are different every day makes every student his very own teacher. The classes will model Knut‘s ongoing classes in Vienna and will allow the student to grow and develop her/his practice in the course of our seven mornings together.
In her afternoon classes in Agricole Samadhi Julie will cover a wide range of topics, teachings and practices. These will include breathing and meditation practices, inputs on both philosophy and anatomy in a yogic context as well as an evening of ecstatic dance. The classes will as usual resemble workshops so that we all learn from each other and there s enough space for discussion, deeper learning and Q&A.
Julie will touch on her experience as an avid yoga student as well as working as a doctor (MD) focusing on obstetrics, gynecology, emergency care as well as traditional medicines (mainly Traditional Chinese Medicine).
Let us emphasize here: we know that everyone can practice yoga and yoga is for every-body! This retreat and its contents are designed so that everybody from the most advanced yogi to a complete beginner will be able to gain valuable insights and experience.
Let us als emphasize that — with 2 sessions a day — there will be enough time to explore beautiful Salento with its pristine beaches and villages. The food in Agricola Samadhi is EXTRAORDINARY and you will be surprised by the variety of amazing organic vegetable food you will enjoy.
Lastly: who is this retreat for? Singles, Couples, Friends, Families — everybody is welcome, and yes, this is a child-friendly retreat.
We are looking forward to spending a week in the sun with you!!!
