Kundalini jooga puhkus

Marika Blossfeldt (Eesti/USA)
9. – 15. juuli 2014

Pühenda üks nädal endale ja
naudi tõelist puhkust nii hingele, meelele kui kehale

Laagri põhirõhk on asetatud süva puhkamisele, lõõgastumisele, tasakaalustamisele, energiaga laadimisele ja endale aega võtmisele. Joogatundidele lisaks teeme ka vaikusekõnde looduses.

Kundalini jooga põhineb Yogi Bhajani õpetusel ja on dünaamiline jooga vorm, mis hõlmab füüsilisi harjutusi, hingamistehnikat, keha- ja käteasendeid, loitsimist ning meditatsioone. Puhastava ja tervendava toimega Kundalini jooga tõstab heaolu, tugevdab elujõudu ning virgutab loomingulisust. Ta aitab lahti hoida energiakanalid, avada tšakrad, tasakaalustada näärmete tegevust ning tugevdada närvisüsteemi. Hingamise ja liikumise ühendamine viib keha, meele ja hinge harmoonilise ühtesulamiseni meid ümbritseva universaalse energiaga.

Marika Blossfeldt on International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Associationi liige ning juhendab eesti keeles, vajadusel tõlkega ingliskeelde.

Nädalane laager pakub varahommikust Sadhanat, erinevaid joogatunde, millest igal ühel on oma spetsiifiline mõju, samuti õhtuseid meditatsioone ja massaaži. Aktiivsest tegevusest vabal ajal on võimalik jalutada Lõuna-Läänemaa puutumatus looduses, sõita rattaga, võtta päikest, ujuda meres ning harjutada olemist olevikus. Polli talu asub Puhtu-Laelatu ning Nehatu looduskaitsealade keskel. Ühel päeval korraldame väljasõidu loodusesse, kus õpime tundma tänu inimtegevuse ohjamisele säilinud unikaalset Eestimaa looduspärandit.

Ööbimine on endistes aitades, millest on saanud kahe, nelja ja viie voodiga külalistetoad. Ka oma telgi püstipanek on võimalik.

Toidud on vegetaarsed – ja väga maitsvad, lisaks piimatooted ja muna. Igal pealelõunal pakume kosuvat ning puhastavat joogi teed.

Teretulnud on kõik – eriti algajad. Eelnev joogakogemus ei ole vajalik.

Kursuse graafik
Alustame 9. juulil lõunasöögiga kell 13
ning lõpetame 15. juulil hommikusöögiga kell 9.

kursusest osavõtt 410.00 EUR (hinna sisse kuuluvad kõik söögid)

The Dancing Bridge

Dances between Heaven and Earth

A dance workshop for women

with Cornelia Freise (Germany)

August 1 – 7, 2014

Polli Talu 2011 150

If a human being perceives joy

coming from another human being,

then she feels in her heart a deep delight.

So the soul remembers

how she is created by God.

Hildegard von Bingen

When we dance JOY appears, the body is flooded with it. Movement connects us with the essence because we are open to the moment. Then dance is a bridge which connects the inner and outer world and enables energy to flow from the inside out. If we dance between Heaven and Earth we partake consciously in this process. We can attune to the unseen and dynamic essence which manifests itself through dance. So we are connected with the Divine and with the soul of the world at the same time and dance our role as human beings in the universe.

We strengthen our connection downwards to the Earth and upwards to Heaven in simple circle dances. We learn to be attentive and let go of our thoughts while repeating the steps. When we dance with others we feel our connection with each other and can enjoy playfulness. In the free dances we open to the movements that our body needs to express. The formless and the form together create a space where we can feel held in our hearts and our bodies. Gratitude can appear and enrich our everyday life.

We will work with dances out of the space of the heart, circle dances, meditations of the heart and dreams.

No prior dance training is required.

Each participant is herself responsible for what happens during the dance sessions.

Cornelia Freise, born in 1957, lives in Bremen, Germany. As a lawyer she worked on several scientific projects. In 1986 the direction of her life changed and she began to teach sacred dance. Since 1992 she has worked as a free lance dance therapist (HPG). In 1996 she founded „The Dancing Wild Sow – “Institute for Transformation through Dance, Meditative Dancing and Dance Therapy” in Bremen which offers “Dancing from the Space of the Heart“ a 2-year dance education for people from different professional backgrounds. Since 1985 she is following the mystical path of the golden Sufis which inspires and carries her work. Since 2002 she conducts workshops in California, Singapore and Estonia.  In 2010 Cornelia published a book on her way of dancing in German. The Estonian translation “Tantsi! oma südamest” was released in 2013.

Schedule

The first and the last day are for arrival and departure. We will begin on Friday with dinner at 18.00 and end on Thursday with breakfast.
