INFINITE RAINBOW RETREAT PROGRAM
Each morning we will start powerfully with SOMA BREATHWORK session facilitated by Greg. Soma Breathwork Meditations use ancient pranayama breathwork techniques combined with brainwave euphoric music in a unique & dynamic way to create ecstatic states in your body & mind while relieving stress and raising your vibrational energy like no other meditation.
When breathing in rhythms with specific instructions we can reach a state of self-hypnosis awaken dormant powers of the mind, supercharging and purifying your blood and nervous system for more energy, vitality and increasing your magnetic power of attraction.
PRANAYAMA literally means control of life force. When you breathe consciously you create an electrical flow of energy through your body taping into your own power & energy while lifting yourself out of your anxieties & worries. Be your own manufacturer of happiness and feel the internal healing potential of intermittent hypoxia, go past the comfort zone & l.e.t. … g.o.
We then continue our morning routine with a class of YOGA – art & science of Life, an ultimate blend which supports our personal evolution in the most beautiful way – graceful integration of conscious breathing and movement on all levels of our being.
Mastering the movement of the mind which is reflected in our body language and directly connected with our breath patterns is one of the hardest, but sweetest practices one can do. The hardest part is in seeing our limitations, which ego usually has difficulties to accept. The sweetest part is letting go of those limitations and understanding the simple truth – they were never there in the first place. We inherited those limitations from believing that our surrounding is more real than we are because we lack deep self-awareness at those moments of our unconsciousness. Yoga brings that to the surface of the conscious mind in the form of revelations about ourselves, the world and the life in general. Our natural connection with the Source of all that is becomes stronger and stable with time, practice and dedication. This is how Yoga supports the integration of different layers of our Being, making it whole and holy again. All it takes to succeed in that affair is burning desire and unbending intention for it to be so.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga sessions are led by our amazing yoga teacher Lucy who will share with you her beautiful energy and knowledge on the subject. Prepare for some sweat-and-release practice under the gentle morning sunrays. Yes, she has the most lovely Spanish accent – it’s there on purpose as to confuse your mind! After each morning routine, you will be more & more in love with life – you see, we want you to really get lost there, in order to be truly found. 😉
So, what’s next on the menu? Let’s eat something nice – Tomi will cook & prepare brunch while you are in Greg’s and Lucy’s hands & hearts.
It’s only noon now and so much is done already – maybe you want to just sit down for a moment and soak all the experiences for yourself and do journaling (it’s a highly recommended practice to do and discover some new insights at the end of the retreat).
Take your next five hours of free time and do whatever you want. What happens there, stays there – we promise! 🙂
You can do a solo exploration in your afternoon or we can do group wandering – have a trip with the boat to a nearby island or take a ride with cars… or just play hide & seek around this adorable old town. There are actually plenty of interesting spots you can discover this way. Yeah, let’s do that!
Anyways, we can plan next days free activities in the evenings’ councils over the dinner. Just bring your best card to the table – the group will decide. 🙂
But before all that jazz, it’s your playful afternoon time with Nina. You will experience CONTACT IMPROVISATION dance on the ground and WATER DANCE sessions in the sea. Let’s see which element suits you best – and let’s do the work on the rest. Both practices are focused on internal feeling and awareness – teaching us to act from the state of presence. We will explore physical touch with the earth and each time start from very subtle forms towards weight sharing exercises, playing with falling and understanding gravity factor. In water, we will use our breath and relaxation to get to the place where the body can let go of any tension, emotion or anything that holds us, so the mind can reach deep meditative state…
… and prepare you finally for the evening HOLISTIC EXERCISES with Tomi. This practice is based on Do-in (Tao Yin), a holistic system of exercises whose roots go into far-reaching history and are based on the idea of a spiritually free man (Shin-Shen-Do) – the way of physical, mental and spiritual development. From intuitive movements that have grown in Do-in form as we know it today, almost all physical, mental or spiritual self-development practices were born – such as yoga, meditation, martial arts, … The uniqueness of these exercises is manifested in the fact that everyone can practice them, as they are not physically demanding. They are combination of holistic & meditative exercises of meridian stretching (energy flow pathways), alchemical breathing & energy exercises, healing sounds, eyes & face exercises, self-massage & internal organs healing techniques, intentional focus on inner silence and self-regulation on a horizontal & vertical axis of our being. Exercising Do-in, energy flow within a person quickly adapt to optimum psychophysical functioning, thus supporting health, rejuvenation, and self-awareness. A growing sense of vitality, harmony and inner peace is accompanied by experiences that increasingly integrate into a holistic and authentic personal expression. Each session we will close with guided HOLOGRAPHIC MEDITATION.
