SLOW MEDICINE with SANDRA D. BIANCO
June 12 - 14, 2020

A weekend in the nature, in a small group of yogis, dedicated to quiet yogic practices such as    restorative sequences and yin yoga, guided breath work and meditation, in order to slow down,  quiet the mind and reconnect to our inner self.

Throughout the day we will be connected to the present moment through the mindfulness  exercises, slow walks in the nature, and in the evening we will end the day with fire circle, tratak and guided yoga nidra, if possible under the starry sky.

Sunday will be dedicated to Mauna practice (inner silence), but you can choose to be silent the whole time during the retreat.

The food is sattvic, fresh, local and vegetarian (vegan on request). 

Max 8 people.
