Yoga, Meditation & Wellness Retreat
STAY IN THE MOMENT
Join us for a nurturing 4 day weekend at Om Waters— a sacred and stunning space offered to dive deep into your inner wisdom. This is an opportunity to practice self-care, be in a conscious community, and immerse yourself in the warm embrace of Mother Earth. This northern Thailand retreat has been designed to put you at nature’s pace— slowing down, quieting the mind, and finding simple joy.Throughout the weekend, we will weave together various modalities to address all levels of your Being and feel the magic of interconnectedness.
YOGA & QIGONG:
Our gentle and moderate yoga classes will benefit beginners, intermediates, and advanced yogis. Participating in our class is not about whether you are “good” at yoga or not. It’s not goal-driven or doing poses by auto-pilot. Instead, yoga is an opportunity to spend time in your body, be attuned to the information and sensations that arrive, and staying curious. This “body awareness” approach keeps learning infinite while building a strong and healthy relationship with yourself. Noticing our physical, mental, and emotional state during yoga poses allows us to fully listen to our body and support ourselves. A mindful yoga practice means we take time to slow down and be in the present moment.
Meditation is an opportunity to observe your mind, the habits it tends to go into, and bringing yourself back to the present moment. We begin to see that we are not our minds, and we can let go of our thoughts, judgements, and reactions. In meditation, we practice a healthy relationship with ourselves as we receive information about our physical, mental, emotional, and energy state. Meditation is not “mastered” but rather a continuous journey with ourselves. Benefits of meditation include: stress relief, increased focus, clarity, insight, creativity, and release. At Hanuman Yoga Retreat, we practice various types of meditation: walking, sitting, loving kindness/compassionate, zen, exploring the five senses, mantras, and more.
TRE®/ Tension / Trauma Release Exercises:
Learn this revolutionary tool for tension release and how stress and trauma affect the nervous system and body. TRE consists of a simple yet powerful set of exercises that help re-initiate the body’s own mechanism of healing through body tremors. The tremors help lower the stress and tension held in the body, without the need for story, or re-living the original events, leaving us more relaxed, clear, grounded and at peace. A tool you can take home with you and use for life!
INNERDANCE ENERGY WORK:
Connect deeper to your inner wisdom by accessing your right brain and intuitive self. Using music, sound instruments, and other sensory input, you are guided into an expanded state of consciousness where insight and healing can occur. Innerdance energy work uses binaural beats and sound wave frequencies, giving an experience similar to a shamanic journey or elements of yoga nidra. Release is common in the form of physical movements, mental images, emotions, and energy. With release comes openness, clarity, and clearing.
Laughter Yoga combines intentional sustained laughter, yogi breathing exercises, and deep relaxation. This yin/yang approach brings in childlike playfulness, creativity, and practicing to let go of the ego or judgement. The benefits of laughter yoga are numerous for our physical, mental, and emotional health. It is also a reminder to cultivate our strength to remain positive regardless of circumstances in life.
