Yoga and walking meditation week July 21 to 27 2024

What do you need to really get to yourself?

This course is about relaxation and reflection. Although we are all engaged in consciousness and personal development in some way, we often do not think about this long enough to really change something in our lives. In the calming, inspiring and natural environment of Centre Lothlorien we use ancient meditation techniques to achieve true relaxation and to find our deepest self. Every day you go out for a meditative walk.

Chakra Meditation Retreat, August 11 to 17 2024

Especialy for this week Guru Ayish L. Vyas is coming from India to teach about the mystical aspects of Yoga.

Working with Chakra's can be dangerous. According to the Indian tradition it should only be done under the guidance of an initiated Guru. For this reason Guru Ayish L. Vyas is coming to France.
Before activating energy in your body, you need to free the channels. You will prepare in a relaxing environment, with Kriya, Asana and Pranayama. Then with help of Prana and Mudra's in Meditation, you can activate the flow of energy in your body and use it for strengthening yourself and get specific health benefits.
