Yoga & Mindfulness Retreat on Gotland
WISDOM OF NATURE – YOGA & MINDFULNESS RETREAT
In the light of the full moon, we meet to retrieve nature and our own healing power, enjoyment and beauty.
Treat yourself to a spring boost far away from the city’s high pulse. At Salthamn you will be offered loving food that stimulates all your senses and at the same time explore mindfulness and medical yoga for your body and soul. The theme is to put new seeds within you, nourish your dreams and intentions and give you tools to build resources and stimulate your own growth power.
When we create space and listen to the longing of our soul, it happens. What we long for, what creates meaning, harmony, power, joy and desire for life, it grows, it fills us and it is in and out of the place we are to live our lives. In and out of the heart.
It is in keeping with nature’s eternal flow that we created the retreat.
