13th to 20th of July 2019

This course does not exist anywhere else! A new and original combination of dance, yin yoga and meditation. Rediscover yourself dancing, laughing and celebrating life at Sadhaka this summer! Pauline and Michelle, two young and inspiring women collaborate and join their passion and talent in a both original and unique way. This will be a playful and inspiring week which will guide you towards more awareness and the feeling of expansion of the self. We invite you to get out of your head and into your body. Reclaim your space, move freely and live completely according your unique authentic nature!

 

What makes this week special?

A new combination of dance and awareness.
During a full week you will follow classes which combines the elements of dance, yin yoga and meditation in a new way. The main theme is raising your self-awareness, self-expression, moving from intuition, strengthening physically and mentally. The focus will shift gradually from head to body. You will be invited to listen more carefully to your bodies needs and act accordingly towards new experiences that arise in the moment.

The classes start with a warm-up where the body is gradually ‘woken up’. Elements from dance-expression, dance-improvisation, contact-dance and more are being introduced and implemented in order to experiment freely in movement and discover your own unique dance in every moment again. Yin Yoga and Meditation are used to further allow body and mind to relax and to deepen the awareness. Sometimes exercises will be done individually, with a partner, or with the whole group.

 


Dance is a dynamic and ever-changing force of movement

In the daily sessions you’ll be meeting yourself and others in a space of loving kindness, where your creativity is allowed to be discovered.
Through dance your attention is brought back to the Now, and to everything that exists within you.
When you surrender to the music you’ll experience a freedom from ideas and conditionings, a deeper connection with your natural state. 

 

 

Yin yoga

Yin yoga
Yin yoga, is a gentle form of yoga and is about stillness and deepening of the posture. The big difference with Hatha yoga is that Yin only uses relaxing postures that are held for three to five minutes (possibly with support from cushions). In this way the connective tissue is slowly stretched and hydrated and the joints remain flexible. More space is created in the connective tissue and joints. It stimulates the flow of prana (life energy) that flows through your body through meridians and ultimately has a positive effect on health. It is beneficial for your organs, your immune system and your emotional state.
Stretching the muscles with Yin Yoga releases tension and stress, making this form also very suitable for people with burnout or fatigue.
Because the exercises are easy to perform, it is very accessible to everyone and therefor experience is not required.

In addition to Dance and Yoga, various forms of meditation are also offered.
In short, this week brings you back to yourself, to what is currently living in you and to express this in movement and awareness.
