AMAZING TEACHERS, GONG BATH & MAGICAL MUSIC
During this week you will meet experienced, heart-full and excellent teachers from many different traditions, with their unique expression and passion in the yogic field.
Yoga is one, the methods are many. During the week you will meet teachers of schools such as Iyengar yoga, Kundalini yoga, Yin yoga, Ashtanga yoga, Hatha yoga etc, you will meet Mantra musicians and a Vedic Astrologer! You will also get mind expanding knowledge in our Forest Philosophy and Vedanta classes.
Sacred Sound is an important aspect of Yoga that gives relaxation, healing and takes you beyond the realm of the mind. You can enjoy gong relaxation, sound healing, and use your own voice through toning and mantra chanting.
Yoga as an experience!
Wake up with the early morning sunrise and start the day with a nourishing practice of your choice – a vitalizing yoga class, a silent sitting, singing meditation or soft toning with your own voice.
Follow the flow from your morning practice into the outdoor serving area where breakfast is served as a beautiful buffet.
Every day after breakfast there will be an “all camp gathering” where we all meet, set the intention for the day, chant together, and create a great group connection.
From there we move into the most active part of the day with a variety of parallel activities before and after lunch where you get the chance to deepen your practice, attend a lecture or perhaps you take a ‘time-out’ from the activities offered and spend some time on your own.
After dinner, the evening offers a chance to simply rest or take part in the activities, attend a concert or sound healing, the possibility to meet a friend at the café or enjoy the flames at the fire-pit.
Once per day, everybody meets in their sharing groups. Sharing is one of the core practices at Ängsbacka and a beautiful way to integrate your experiences of the day, connect with yourself and the people in your group.
For you to get the most out of your experience, we offer yogic vegetarian food from passionate chefs who care about your well-being. They will pick the finest veggies for you to enjoy as exciting stews, soups and raw food dishes that make both your body and your taste buds vibrate with pleasure.
The yogic food provides lots of energy, without being too heavy. Vegan alternatives will also be available during mealtimes.
