First retreat in Surya

Welcome to the first yoga retreat in Surya International Yoga Study Center Croatia!

This November we will talk about the possibilities, effects, and responsibilities of new beginnings; new starts. Why is it sometimes difficult? Can we know if we are on the right path?

According to yoga philosophy, if we live in the moment, everything is always new. However, in each life, there are some special impressions that are more intense than other moments. Due to that these impressions become more important. And these intense moments in our lives should be transformed into our own benefit. In this week we will work on this topic. To experience how we can look to the bigger picture of our own little life.

To prepare for this retreat and get maximum benefits, we invite you to study the following sutras of Patanjali comment by Taimni 1.33 / 2.3 / 2.4 / 2.5 / 2.11 / 2.12 / 2.15 / 2.23 / 2.29 / and 1st, 2nd and 6th chapter from the Gita.

The new moon in Scorpio will be exact on the first day of our retreat, November 15th. New moon energy is always about a new beginning. Scorpio energy is about intuition and digging deep.

This concerns all the living creatures on a global scale as well as in our individual lives. What a lovely energy to support us throughout the retreat program!

We like to welcome you to our brand new and cozy retreat center, away from your everyday obligations. In a pleasant, safe, and caring environment, where everything you might need is provided for you.

The center is a very special place due to the alignments we made according to the ancient Vedic architecture (Vastu). This means that everything in the house, including the entrances and the windows, are placed as much as possible in a way that provides the purest energy. The energy which supports better grounding and connection to the source through which we can have deeper meditations.

The morning practice is dynamic and challenging Hatha yoga. We are discovering the possibilities of the body and play with the physical/mental borders. Always with respect for what is possible or not. The challenge is to play, not to reach the final pose. We will talk about the logic behind the poses and of the body, the effect and the purpose of the practical part of the Ashtanga yoga. What is the cause of limitation and how can we overcome this limitation. Why do we function the way we do. There is a perfect philosophy which is based on ages of experience of the yogi’s.

The afternoon practice serves as a preparation for meditation and the sitting pose. It focuses on opening the hips and the pelvis. We will dive into the philosophy of yoga practice and due to that, we will understand what meditation is and what it can bring us. It is a journey to our inner self. To become a human as we are meant to be.

Questions are always welcome and the lectures are interactive.
