Yoga en Meditatie Retraite in Medellin

Volgens Swami Vishnu Devananda, is meditatie een doorgaande stroom van perceptie of gedachten, zoals het water stroomt in een rivier. Een praktijk waar er constante observatie is van de geest, bewustzijn en harmonie. Als je op zoek bent naar het beter begrijpen van het levensdoel of diepe ontspanning, kijk dan naar binnen in plaats van je te focussen op de hedendaagse op geld beluste maatschappij.

Iyengar and hatha yoga

By paying close attention to anatomical details and the alignment of each posture, Iyengar Yoga is the practice of precision. Poses are held for long periods and often modified with props. This method is designed to systematically cultivate strength, flexibility, stability, and awareness, and can be therapeutic for specific conditions. B.K.S. Iyengar founded Iyengar Yoga and it can be practiced by all.

Single - pointed Lamrim meditations

The lamrim, or “graduated path,” is a presentation of Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings that details the stages in the complete path to enlightenment. In the single-pointed Lamrim Meditation you focus your mind on one single object at a time, and like this walk through the various stages to liberation. Lama Zopa Rinpoche has recently given new advice suggesting that students follow a lamrim outline and meditate on each subject for two weeks or one month until all subjects have been completed. Rinpoche advised, “The amount of time for meditation is up to the individual, but the general advice is to finish the lamrim in one year,” Rinpoche said. Depending on the duration of your stay, we introduce you to one or various of the Meditations and teach you how to continue this beautiful path.

Noble silence

Here at La Casa de Loto we strongly attach value to deep silence. Thursdays and Sundays all day long and every other day from the end of lunch until dinner. This is very healing. We allow the silence and the calmness to penetrate our flesh and bones. We allow the energy of mindfulness to penetrate our body and mind. We walk, meditate, read, write, study, or do anything else that pleases you, in silence. All with pure awareness of just this one task. We breathe deeply and enjoy the stillness and the freshness. Let us not talk to the other guests, as they need our support too. We can stay alone outside with the trees, the river, the lake and the animals, go for walks, or use our rooms to relax.

It is needed everyone to participate for this practice to be deep and joyful. This is the practice of the noble silence. Thank you for your joyful practice.

  • Michael Kunz

    Pema is a certified Sati & Hatha Yoga and Meditation teacher on a spiritual seek since his childhood. His name “Karma Pema Tsering” was given to him a few years back by one of his Lamas when taking refuge to buddhism. The name translates as Long Life Lotus and now gives name to La Casa de Loto. In Iyengar Yoga and Lamrim Meditations Pema found mental and physical liberation and decided to dedicate his life to to share these precious and life-changing teachings with others to find Union with the Universe and a way to "surf the waves of life".

Ayurvedic Massage Description

Ayurvedic massage is a key part of Ayurvedic therapy. Just as a machine needs to be oiled, the body loves to have its largest organ, the skin, soothed, which is the reason oils are used in this massage. Whether the Ayurvedic massage forms part of a more comprehensive Ayurveda programme or is merely undertaken for the sheer pleasure of a deeply relaxing, indulgent body massage; Ayurvedic massage is one of Ancient India’s best-kept secrets. Over 5,000 years of empirical research has refined Ayurvedic massage into a sublime art, and yet it is still unheard of by many. However, combining skilled knowledge of the body with knowledge of oils and bodywork techniques has resulted in a profound art for balancing the body and mind through the medium of oil massage. Its calm approach means that recipients are not only induced into a relaxed state during the massage, they also often report an improvement in their sleep patterns and general sense of wellbeing. In an ideal world, Ayurvedic massage would be carried out daily to help keep at bay the effects that everyday stresses and strains can have on our minds and bodies. With Carlos we have a great Ayurveda Therapist visiting once a week, who studied this massage techniques in India and Barcelona and practices since many years.

Reiki Description

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."

​A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

    "Dear Tripaneer folks, A little overdue... but I would like to share my appreciation of the week retreat at Michael's place in Medellin. I was the only student that week and thoroughly enjoyed the setting, lovely home in parque Lleras and my nice room there which seemed to be in the forest (canopy of trees). Michael connects easily, is accessible and is a fun guy overall to be with. moreover he "has been there' in real live experience and has subsequently immersed himself in Buddhist teachings and yoga practice. This, in my opinion, gives him the edge in hosting such intimate retreats in which mere technique does not suffice. You need to connect at a deeper level and understand the challenges of others and that is what he does. Switching easily to the lighter side of things. Take the chance and experience for yourself., also the yoga iyengar is the best yoga I have experienced anywhere and taught expertly by Michael. I loved the combination of meditation and yoga daily and the opportunity to explore the fascinating city. I am very thankful for our insightful conversations and friendship and hope to see you soon! Ps the food is home cooked and delicious! ask Michael to prepare his native rosti, it's amazing! Please confirm that you will publish this."

    "I first met Pema or Michael two years ago. As I grew up in Italy (macho land), he first seemed to be a crazy guy to me with all his meditation and yoga. But seeing him basically serene and happy all of the time, I thought I have to try whatever he is doing. Since then, I have taken three retreats with him and it is incredible how my life has changed. I have learned so much through the practices - to simply let life flow and not taking things too personally. I have gained lots of mental and physical strength and a confidence which now allows me to lead the life I always wanted. Michael and all the rest of the Sati team are amazing beings and I highly recommend his classes and retreats. Hasta pronto."

    "Searching the web for retreats in Medellin lead me to Michael's yoga retreat. At that time, I was seeking a structured and peaceful environment that offered yoga, meditation, and a wholesome space to escape a frenetic hostel lifestyle and alleviate myself from intense anxiety and the self-destructive decisions I was making. Upon arriving at the Ayurveda temple, I was surprised to find that the yoga retreat would not take place in the mountains of Medellin, but rather in a large apartment. My initial disappointment very quickly past when Michael greeted me at the door with a presence of absolute tranquility and warmth. I immediately was overcome with the confidence that the peaceful being before me would be integral in my healing and soulful development."

    "Michael's program offered a structure perfectly suited to my needs. He led me on two guided meditations daily, provided the opportunity to practice yoga every day at a nearby studio, access to a wonderful Ayurvedic healer, as well as Reiki, meditation, and massage practitioners of various backgrounds and experience. Michael went above and beyond the expectations of a retreat facilitator. Over the course of the month, Michael and I grew close and developed a wonderful relationship. He counseled me and helped me immensely with personal issues, offering advice and suggestions in a respectful manner. His openness and authenticity helped me to share with him and allowed the relationship to develop into a friendship."

    "I immensely enjoyed cooking with Michael, dining out occasionally, taking nature walks, going on day trips, and meeting his close circle of friends. I found the yoga retreat to be very flexible and tailored to suit my needs. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have met Michael, who served as a healer and role model. I learned so much, more so from observation and reflection as opposed to Michael instructing me in a teacher-like manner. He introduced me to some amazing people who all inspired me with their selflessness and desire to help others. I am so appreciative to these individuals who were all integral in helping me to return to a positive space and cultivate beneficial lifestyle choices."

    "Staying with Michael is one of the best things I have ever done! I booked for two weeks and ended up staying for five. Michael has put together the perfect combination of daily meditation, yoga, and medical check ups. The yoga center is full of friendly and experienced teachers, and the Ayurvedic doctor is knowledgable and caring. Michael teaches new ways to meditate based on Tibetan Buddhism and provides a very compassionate and calm space for meditation."

    "My time in Medellin gave me space to return to my center, and focus on my mental and physical health. It is all encompassing! I learnt so much about Buddhism and taking care of myself. I am so grateful for the experience. Thanks again, Michael. If you are looking for a space to re-center, this is it!"
