A unique synthesis of nature, history, flavors and meditation in search of its own balance.

Each of you at least once a day is crossed by a thought that roughly says: "I would like a little peace ...". At the resort hotel in Nocera Umbra, Perugia, Antico Monastero San Biagio, they have recreated all the conditions for this "peace" to be achieved.

A deafening silence in total immersion in a green wooded vegetation and the distance from the frenetic means of communication that invade our days represent an ideal climate to enjoy the external environment but also to turn one's gaze towards the interior of one's spirit and of one's conscience.

In addition, the education and treatments of the body with a base of medicinal herbs from ancient traditions and monastic cultures, contribute to an immediate improvement of one's physical, intellectual, but above all inner well-being.

In this setting that encloses atmosphere and harmony, the place can offer you excellent products such as Birra San Biagio, a craft beer of monastic inspiration and a cuisine that knows how to revisit the tradition of the territory with taste and elegance.

Program

Only when all forms of Janani, Mother Earth, are respected and loved, will there be Peace in people's lives and on earth .. (Sw.Niranjanananda Saraswati Bihar School of Yoga)

This is a week to practice yoga and meditation immersed in the silence and purity of the ancient and timeless atmosphere of this Monastery, which saw pilgrims and travelers pass for centuries and centuries on a journey in search of God and themselves

Here history has stopped and it is worth stopping for a while .. to look at the sky or the Sun or the stars ..

Here you can stop and decide to rest body and soul, breathing the spirituality of the Monastery and the ancient church preserved inside, cool off in the swimming pool set among the white stones like a small mountain lake or relax in the suggestive Spa rebuilt on the criteria of the ancient spa with the scent of herbs or leave for walks in the woods towards rivers and springs, between churches and places of the history of this land .. as travelers .. looking for the silence to listen to the heart ..

Francesca will conclude the program of this beautiful week offering everyone a concert of spiritual music inspired by Indian ragas with maestro Fabio Roccagli Nirmalam and Havan the ancient Vedic prayer offered to fire.

What does it mean?

Sadhana

The lifestyle of the Ecology of Yoga is a Sadhana.

In Sanskrit Sadhana means: Spiritual effort, not physical or mental effort ... It is the effort made to open the doors beyond which there is Enlightenment.

The term "sadhana" encompasses all those techniques which are deliberately adopted to remove the imperfections of the personality.

Sadhana is the effort made to identify with the joy and sadness of each one, to expand horizons and rise above the pettiness of life; this should be the purpose of sadhana. Sadhana is a highly developed science of evolution and is practiced for one's own evolution. Therefore sadhana is not the end but the means. (Swami Satyananda Saraswati).

Aradhana

  • It means adoration, invocation and realization of the higher nature that is within everything. This prolonged experience of joy satisfies
  • chin and happiness is the beginning of spiritual awareness. (Swami Niranjanananda)

Ashwattha Aradhana helps to rebuild the broken relationship with nature, through the relationship of love towards Mother Earth.

Ashwattha means "eternal" and is the oldest known cult tree. Aradhana means "to worship". When you perform ashwattha Aradhana for a tree or plant, you worship the ancient immortal spirit of the sacred ashwattha tree and the eternal spirit of prithvi.

Jyoti the flame represents the atman (soul) and its awakening not only in ourselves but also in the tree.

Yajna, Havan and Agnihotra

They are 3 forms of the ancient Vedic ritual of the Prayer to the fire through the offering of the sacred Mantras and personal devotion. Through the Fire Prayer people align themselves and their environment with the positive energies of creation, which are the generative, sustaining and transforming energies. It is the first step towards environmental and mental stability.

In the twentieth century, Satyananda announced that Yoga would be the culture of tomorrow.

Tomorrow is today and what is needed most now is Yoga which reconnects us to the Divine through nature, the ecology of Yoga.

The earth will survive even after our death but if we want to preserve clean air and water, intact forests, oceans, rivers and deserts we must adopt yoga not only for our well-being but also for the well-being of the spirit of the Earth.

This is the New Path of Yoga towards the future.

Who is it for?

To new yoga practitioners to understand from the beginning of their path the profound contents of this great and ancient Way, today more relevant than ever.

To people who have been practicing and knowing Yoga for a long time to enrich their experience and take up Yoga as an important transformative tool for themselves and others.

To everyone to open their eyes to a Vision of Yoga towards the Future.
