Unique Elements of a Yoga Retreat with Samanta

Vedic chanting is a powerful meditative technique which aims to integrate body, voice, mind and emotions in the deeper quest for spiritual unity.

Thai Body Work brings acupressure and yogic stretching together to make a profound healing system.

Sacred Dances (includes Gurdjieff movement)
We all have 3 powerful centres: intellectual, emotional, physical. Normally they work independently. The aim of Gurdjieff Movements is to bring these into harmony. The mind is happy when it has something to do. When it has nothing to do it ‘thinks’, it wanders off. While performing the Movements, the mind has something to do: the counting. And the emotional centre is touched by music. This helps to be in the moment, step by step, in the here and now.
