Find Your Inner Sanctuary
Finding Beauty and Joy Amid Life's Chaos
24th June - 1st July, 2023
When life gives you lemons, make a lemonade and enjoy it under the Greek sun!
That’s exactly the mindset we are cultivating here in Vinsan Wellness. This retreat is a perfect getaway from all the noise of everyday stresses and busy schedules. Through daily movement practices and evening rituals with sound healing sessions, ecstatic dancing, lots of laughter, good food and grounding into nature, all the tension will be washed away in no time.
Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to witch you can retreat any time.
What to expect
Energising morning yoga and meditation. With the help of yoga and conscious breath we can release tension from the body so the energy could move freely. A grounding spiritual practice first thing in the morning sets the mood for the rest of the day and creates healthy habits.
Somatic body movement. Somatic movement is awareness or presence during movement, and being connected in your body. Somatic Movement Therapy gives you the tools you need to access wisdom stored in your body. A somatic movement is made with focus on the internal movement instead of on the external movement.
Internal movement is very different from most physical or exercise training. Because his internal way of moving builds your interoception (self sensing) it helps you feel good.
If you find your mind is cut off from your body. As a result you can feel ungrounded, anxious, out of control or even depressed. In fact, when humans worry or are overactive mentally we often get digestive upsets, high blood pressure, tense muscles, headaches or just feel spacey.
Laughter yoga. Laughter Yoga is an exercise program developed by Indian physician Dr Madan Kataria where anyone can laugh without relying on humour, jokes or comedies.
It combines laughter exercises with yoga breathing techniques (Pranayama) which brings more oxygen to our body and brain making us feel more energetic and healthy. And it’s so much fun!
Yin yoga. Yin yoga offers remedies to the stresses of your busy yang life. Each restorative pose targets your deeper fascia and connective tissues, helping you experience increased flexibility and improved joint health.
Yin yoga also focuses on deep breathing and longer hold times, allowing you the time and space to clear your mind and enhance your mental acuity. These meditative poses will help you attain a renewed sense of mindfulness and physical well-being, making them the perfect complement to an active yang lifestyle and helping bring you back into balance.
Sound bath. A sound bath is a meditative experience where those in attendance are “bathed” in sound waves. These waves are produced by various sources, including healing instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, percussion, chimes, rattles, tuning forks, and even the human voice itself. The general intention of a sound bath is to create a state of harmony in the listener by using sound to clear discordance from the participants' energy fields. Among the benefits are relaxation, an increased sense of wellbeing and expanded awareness.
Themed Cacao ceremonies are a safe, nourishing environment to connect with yourself, the spirit of cacao, and other people in deeper ways than one can usually access when by yourself.
The group will be led through a cacao blessing. The facilitator will be guiding through various exercises and experiences based on the intentions of the event. Some examples of guided experiences are: guided meditations, sound journeys, dance and movement practices, and partner exercises.
Ecstatic dancing. Ecstatic Dance is all about dancing like no one is watching you; dancing without the judgement of others and dancing without limits. Even though Ecstatic Dance has gotten more and more popular over the past years, it is by no means a contemporary activity. This form of dance was practised throughout human history and is known as a meditative activity that helps us cope with stress. How beautiful that dance can help us heal!
Aromatherapy session. Did you ever get waves of pleasure from smelling a fragrant flower? The olfactory nerve is the fastest gateway to the brain, and strong producer of endorphins, sense memory, and feelings of wellbeing. Using various smells we will dive into our subconscious mind and access our long forgotten memories.
