Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Bulgaria.
This is a four day weekend between the Bulgarian Mountains and sea, dedicated to your practice of yoga and meditation! Let us celebrate life and connect with pure nature, wake up the energy of the body and the spirit that resides within, through yoga and dancing meditations, let us move to the rhythm within! Here you can allow yourself to relax in the welcoming atmosphere of the eco-holistic center of Shambala and give your senses a taste of fresh and home made Ayurvedic meals.
In the main area of the center near the dining space and meditation hall, you can choose between two double rooms and three rooms for four people each. Each room has its own bathroom in the main holistic center area. There is a big beautiful eco round earth house on two floors, seven minutes walk from yoga hall with two bathrooms big common space with kitchen and three bedrooms - two of them for two people each and one bedroom for four people.
The earth house has its own beautiful garden you can sit in, take or snack your tea and enjoy. The main area has plenty space to relax like a big open shatra with hammocks, benches, and meadows.
You will begin your day with a teaching of the basic cleansing procedures in yoga kriyas, Jala neti, cleaning your nose with salt water using a nety pot, extremely helpful in cases of sinusitis, and any kind of breathing problems. If the group is ready, you will continue with sutra nety, cleaning the nostrils with string and kynjal kryia or Vamana dhouty.
This class will start with a short meditation and continue with breathing exercises - different by effect and practice pranayamas, gentle opening of the body and escalating by their difficulty asanas-postures in traditional Indian teaching style, followed by meditation and yoga Nidra or deep relaxation.
There will be intensive class of flowing asanas connected breathing and in-between Vinyasas. This will work your body flexibility, will make it strong, and will provide intense in-depth detoxification of tissues and muscles. The class will be in the tradition of Pataby Jois. You will learn bandhas, how to lead your energy higher, some mudras-position of the hand fingers and drishty, points of concentration of eyes during the asana performance. At the end of the practice, there will be meditation and a non-guided relaxation.
Osho’s meditations use breathing, dancing, or shaking as a way of letting go of the needed baggage most of you carry on your shoulders due to your conditioning. They help one to feel lighter and at ease with oneself, and get in contact with the life energy within directly through the body. One then reaches a center within easier than with classical sitting meditation and a deeper quality of silence and contact with one’s self.
Meditation is not anything of the mind, it is something beyond the mind. The first step is to be playful about it. If you are playful about it, the mind cannot destroy your meditation. Otherwise, it will turn it into another ego trip; it will make you very serious.
This is a beautiful healing method in Himalayan yogic tradition including mudras sounds and concentration on chakras in order to balance elements in your body. The first day you learn how to apply on yourself and second for the others too.
