6-Daagse Vipassana Meditatie en Yoga Retraite in Thailand

Yoga and Vipassana Retraite in Thailand

Deze pagina is nog niet volledig vertaald naar het Nederlands. Momenteel wordt hier aan gewerkt.

Gaiatree yoga is een unieke combinatie van therapeutische yoga die sterke roots heeft met de Indiase ashram stijl, met Vipassana meditatie, een ongelofelijk effectieve meditatie techniek. Onze retraite is gesitueerd in een zalig jungle paradijs net buiten Chiang Mai, de perfecte plek om te focussen op je geest en lichaam en zo getransformeerd en geïnspireerd terug te keren. De lesmethoden zijn gebaseerd op het Hindoeïstische centrum van Odisha en het Boeddhistische centrum van Ladakh, India. We geven al jaren les aan duizenden leerlingen hoe ze onze krachtige technieken kunnen gebruiken om zo gelukkiger en gebalanceerd te worden. Onze therapeutische yoga is niet hetzelfde als gebruikelijke yoga. Onze aanpak hangt af van de individuele behoeften van iedere student om zo iedereen een juiste sequentie van oefeningen en technieken mee te geven om in het dagelijks leven te gebruiken. Onze focus brengt je een klassieke, traditionele Indiase retraite in een prachtige omgeving die zo een onvergetelijke ervaring creëert waarvan je onmiddellijk de voordelen ervaart.

Gaiatree yoga is a therapeutic yoga

This is not the same as a conventional yoga class. In fact, if you have a serious medical problem and go to a yoga class randomly chosen, your medical problem may get worse. In a way, therapeutic yoga is more like an appointment by a physiotherapist or rehabilitation specialist and less like a yoga class.

For people with serious illnesses, yoga therapy last an hour in general or will be taught in small groups. In our Gaiatree retreat, we have ordinary small groups with maximum 10 students. Therapeutic yoga is gentle and caring, although it can also be a challenge. So we put a strong focus on body awareness, posture, coupled with movement leading to a relaxed, rhythmic breathing.

Participants will be taught the therapeutic yoga class, as they can perceive the subtle sensations of their muscles and joints, organs, and inner experience of the spirit. Furthermore, a strong emphasis is placed on relaxation. The approach is always tailored on each individual’s needs, abilities, and reactions.

The teacher / therapist has the task to observe the student in his exercises and determine contraindications. Each participant on a call before the exercise begins. At the end of each course, the student gets the right sequence of different exercises, techniques and behavioral clues and can then implement these in every daily life. Regular consultations are part of the training plan.


Vipassana is one of the oldest Indian meditation techniques. Long lost to humanity, it was rediscovered by Gautama The Buddha more than 2500 years ago. Vipassana means to see things as they really are. It is the process of self-purification by self-observation. He begins by observing the natural breath to concentrate the mind.

With a sharpened awareness one observes the changing nature of body and mind and experiences the universal truths of impermanence (anicce), suffering (dukha ) and egolessness (annatta ). This truth-realization by direct experience is the process of cleaning. The entire path (Dhamma ) is a universal remedy for universal problems and has nothing to do with organized religion or sectarianism.

For this reason, it can be freely practiced by everyone, at any time, any place, without conflict due to race, community or religion. The basis of the practice is sila - moral behavior. Sila provides a basis for the development of samadhi - concentration of the mind and the purification of the mind is achieved through panna - the wisdom of insight.

The unique combination of Gaiatree Yoga (Yoga Sutra) and Vipassana (Sattipathana Sutra) is expanding the popular concept of Hatha yoga as a physical discipline, in a strong therapeutic and spiritual dimension. There is yoga of self-discovery. In this case, the practitioner develops powerful techniques that can be integrated into everyday life. Thus the unconscious forces of the restless spirit are harmonized and resolved the emotional conflicts.
