Mountain Yoga & Meditation Retreat in Slovenia

  • Lopatnik 4, 3320 Velenje, Slovenia
  • Aug 27 - Sep 1, 2020 (6 days)

Event Highlights

  • This is your week to re-connect and re-charge. Imagine mountain views for miles, acres of woodland to explore right on our doorstep, and a refreshing natural pool to jump into after a sauna. Our retreat is at the peak of the local summer time, so we can be pretty sure of blue skies and sunny, warm days.
  • Alongside the nourishing yoga & meditation programme, there will be plenty of free time for reading, wandering through the trees, swimming, sauna, reading, sun-bathing, forest-bathing, napping…
  • We'll stay close to the authentic meaning of Yoga and Vedānta philosophy, with periods of traditional 'mauna' practice (community silence) and mindful meditation, giving you the space to re-connect with your purpose and come home to your true nature of ‘pūrṇa’ (fullness).
  • Our morning sessions are scheduled at a time that gives you enough deep sleep. Plus, I’ll guide an (optional!) supported digital detox so you can truly enjoy a sanctuary away from busy, switched-on daily life.

Schedule

Our daily schedule will offer morning meditations at the most peaceful, 'sattvic' time of day, guided journaling and philosophy teachings to give you personal time to reflect, and a very complete yoga programme; both energising vinyasa and mindful slow flow to quiet the mind and rest deeply. Free time in the afternoons is there to let you explore nature and take time for yourself, and our evening sessions will be focused around slower, deep yoga, rest and integration.

About This Event

Join us for a nourishing week of immersing yourself in the stunning mountains of Slovenia with a deep daily practice of yoga and meditation.

Taking a week out of your usual schedule is a powerful way to come back to your centre and establish or deepen your practice, taking all the benefits home with you. And, especially if you haven’t discovered Slovenia yet, it’s a wonderful time to explore…

We'll practice both indoors by the fire and oudoors overlooking the mountains,. Our home for the week has 23 hectares of its own land to explore, surrounded by forests and meadows, as Ana from the retreat centre so nicely says, "as far as the eye can see and the feet can carry".

You're welcome just as you are, whether you want to connect socially or feel more like enjoying quiet time, or a mixture of the two.

Your food all week will be alive with prana (energy), picked freshly from the land's own permaculture gardens and put together with love according to Ayurveda principles: a healthy and 'vata balancing' feast around mid-day when digestion is strongest, and a lighter, easily-digestible dinner in the early evening with tea and snacks throughout the day.

Come home to your true nature of peace

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan
