Quebec:  Retreat - Yoga and Ecology

 

Retreat: Yoga and Ecology

Return to a simple life, connect with yourself and live a unique experience!
Come with us to a wonderful place in nature, to relax while practicing yoga and meditation, and find our inner connection to nature.

Join us from August 16 to 18, 2019 for a memorable retreat, at place based on sustainable development, located in Harrington (1.30 hours from Montreal, Laurentians).

In addition to the workshops led by Surya-Montreal, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the 800-acre forest with trails and a private lake.
In this magnificent setting, ideal for reconnecting with oneself and nature, the activities will be guided by Claudette Ah-Soon and Bernhard Obojes from Surya-Montreal.

The goal is to take time for yourself, while relaxing and re-sourcing, to find joy and serenity.
The following classes will be offered:

  • suryashtanga yoga: to reconnect with one’s body and respiration, and to cultivate joy and inner peace
  • creative meditation: to cultivate a healthy mind in a healthy body and take a step towards serene and lasting happiness

Optional:

  • hunyuan qigong / taiji: to untie tensions accumulated in the body; to find energy, balance and harmony in life
  • dressed massage (shiatsu yin): to do good and fully accept ones physical body, and learn how to do good to others
  • discussions around a fire at night about the benefits of meditation and the meaning of developing ones full potential!

In small groups and adapted to the level of each, the classes will be in French and English if necessary; note that afternoon workshops are optional so that everyone can find his/her rhythm and be attentive to his/her needs.
