Golden Yoga Retreat
Bagan has a special energy, an ancestral atmosphere with more than 3000 Budhist Temples and Pagodas, and where meditation is a local daily practice.
Merging into this sacred ambiance the Golden Yoga Retreat will create a space for you to reconnect with your inner self, challenging and strengthening your body and mind, while exploring the Magic Bagan and its costumes/traditions.
Practicing multiple styles of yoga, according to the moment of the day, and the day of the week we will deepen the connection to our deepest selfs. Taking the practice outdoors, into beautiful gardens, sandbanks in the middle of the river, ancient pagodas and monasterys, we will connect to the sacred energy of Bagan and its blessed nature.
In Myanmar all the festivities and major life events happen according to the Moon, this retreat also happens during the New moon, which simbolizes the end of a cycle and the beggining of other, the end of darkness and beggining of light. The yoga and meditation practice in the retreat will also reflect this "rebirth".
The teachers hosting this retreat met in the magic land of Bagan (Myanmar), and immediately they felt in love with this golden land and with the Burmese smiley people, transforming what was supposed to be a month experience into a several months one, they say it was just difficult to leave the sacred energy of this place that both call home .
Living among Burmese, expats, and tourists, they have a great understanding of the Burmese culture, know a lot about Bagan and all its corners and peculiaritys, and will provide you more then a space for practicing yoga, but a truly local-westernized insight of Bagan!
