Embodied Presence: Live in the Now
WITH CHANTAL SOETERS
This week will help you to slow down and unplug yourself to relieve stress and clear stuck energy. During this week you will learn simple techniques and practices to incorporate into your daily life, which help you to slow down, be present and experience your life more fully. Each day consists of a morning meditation session, an energizing vinyasa flow class and a restorative afternoon session. During the yoga sessions Chantal will guide you to find more freedom by emphasizing safety through alignment, taking into account your unique background and experience. At the same time she encourages you to challenge yourself, to step out of your comfort zone and to explore your attitude on and off their mat. By investigating your thoughts, emotions and automatic responses you begin to notice how you unconsciously create tension and constriction in your mind and body. Instead of getting all tangled up in your thoughts and emotions, Chantal helps you to free your mind and body by reawaken yourself to the present moment. You will notice throughout this weekend how practicing being present helps you to slow down, become quiet and connect with your inner wisdom. Being totally present and letting go of control allows you to deeply relax into who you are. You will come away from this retreat with more focus and energy, and the ability to face your everyday challenges with more clarity and ease.
