why residential retreats
Practicing yoga in a natural environment, disconnected from your routine, is an opportunity to feel a deeper connection with yourself, the earth, the surroundings, and the universe. The practice of Kundalini Yoga helps us to recognise and to embrace the patterns, rhythms and cycles of nature. It gives you the possibility to better align your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels and experience a deeper sense of unity.
Joining the residential training Level 1 is a gift that you offer to yourself. It is an opportunity to create space for you to be, and not do. Away from your daily responsibilities, you increase your chance to encounter your deeper self. It is a time to observe, transform and integrate. Your own growth will be supported by a collective living space, with the possibility to serve each other and reconnect to our original nature, to give and to receive.
Being together in nature during the Level 1 Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training and sharing a collective yogic lifestyle for 21 days is very impactful. It is a source of inspiration and growth. These 3 residential modules are an immersion in the yogic teachings offering the optimum condition to deepen your practice, embrace positive habits, enter a transformational process and encounter your destiny.
