Beginner - Intermediate - Advanced
The intention of this retreat is for participants to make contact with and really connect to nature.
There will be yoga to bring us a deep sense of grounding and activities that will awaken our awareness of and reconnect us to the nature that surrounds us and of which we are all apart.
Yoga and Prithvi yoga will be complemented with silent walks and outdoor meditations as well as a range of other activities such as surfing, bouldering (rock climbing) and mountain biking.
What is Prithvi yoga?
Prithvi yoga is a classical and traditional yoga based on the sutras of Patanjali and the principles of hatha yoga. What distinguishes Prithvi yoga, however, is the fact that it is practiced out of doors without insulating mats and while wearing clothing made from natural fibers such as cotton. This gives us a direct connection between our bodies and the earth element so as to derive the maximum benefits from a grounding contact with the earth.
The earth element represents solid matter and the structure of the universe. Earth gives form to the human body, and to all of creation. The structure provided by earth is the conduit through which the other elements all flow. All elements are born of ether and contained within earth.
Why practice Prithvi yoga?
We are bioelectrical beings living on an electromagnetic planet. Our bodies operate electrically and all of our cells transmit multiple frequencies that control, among other things, our hearts, our muscles, our immune systems and our nervous systems.
However, industrialization and our increasingly technological lifestyles have caused a build-up of free radicals in our bodies which disrupt the electrical balance of our cells. Grounding activities such as Prithvi yoga allow us to absorb negative electrons from the earth which neutralize these damaging free radicals, bringing us wide-ranging health benefits which include improved sleep, pain management, and stress reduction.
For this retreat, you will need comfortable and natural (non-synthetic) clothing and be ready to get a bit dirty practicing on grass and soil!
