The SLOW PRACTICE Retreat
-Finding stillness and peace in body, mind and spirit
with Ulrica Norberg and Hillevi Borga
8-14 September 2019
at the beautiful MONTE VEHLO ECO resort, PORTUGAL
Join Yoga Master Ulrica Norberg and her co-teacher Hillevi Borga, Physical Therapist and yogateacher, in beautiful Portugal for a wholesome week of focus on practices that strengthen our mental muscles, our concentration, focus and the ability to relax and stay present and aware.
Key words for this retreat is SLOW. DETENSIFY. SOFTEN. PAUSE. INQUIRY.
And in order for that to happen we need to REFLECT. BLEND. MOVE. ENGAGE. WORK.
Ulrica and Hillevi have outlined the days spent at Monte Vehlo Eco Retreat with a start every morning on the mat with yoga and meditation. The afternoon practice involves a longer session focusing on technique, dialogue on what SLOW is, why p a u s i n g is so important as well as guiding you through a well thought out sequnece in Yin or restorative yoga.
To counterbalance this contemplative, self- inquiry and de-tensifying practice, you will throughout the day be led through powerwalks and CORE work where you learn how to engage the system in order to balance the inner and outer.
In between sessions there will be quiet time where each participant can rest, contemplate and enjoy the premises; the outdoors in natures splendour.
Nothing done too much is balancing. So if you marinate yourself in a lot of SLOW practice, one needs to engage the muscles in order to allow circulation, adapability and strenght to arrive in us. Stability in body, mind and spirit comes through a mixture between learning to deeply de- tensify in order to re-sensify your systems.
This retreat is truly unique.
There is nothing like it out there.
