Kundalini jooga puhkus

Marika Blossfeldt (Eesti/USA)
19. – 25. juuli 2017

Pühenda üks nädal endale ja

naudi tõelist puhkust nii hingele, meelele kui kehale

img_8971

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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, vaikuse kõnde 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.

Kundalini Yoga Intensive

Marika Blossfeldt (Estonia/USA)
June 17 – 18, 2017

_mg_8076

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kundalini Yoga is based on Yogi Bhajan’s teachings. A dynamic form of yoga, combining postures, stretching, movement, meditation, breathing, and chanting, it stimulates the glands, strengthens the nervous system, opens meridians, and balances chakras. It calms the mind and increases our capacity for concentration and intuition. Ultimately, it brings us to a deeper understanding of our potentials and ourselves and allows for a harmonious merging of body, mind and soul with the universal energy surrounding us.

Polli Talu Artistic Director and Kundalini Yoga instructor Marika Blossfeldt, certified in New York by 3HO, Kundalini Yoga East, will teach in English.

The two day intensive offers five different yoga classes and several meditations.

Minimum age for participants: 16 years.

No previous yoga experience is necessary – beginners are very welcome

Star Thalers are Dancing

Star Thalers are Dancing

Dances between Heaven and Earth

July 1 – 7, 2017

Cornelia Freise (Germany)

img_8787-2

What counts is not the enormity of the task, but the magnitude of courage.

Matthieu Ricard

The Star Thalers is a fairy tale about a lonesome girl who sets out on a journey without any belongings except the clothes on her body and the bread in her hand. She shares both with other destitutes. In the end, she stands alone in the woods, naked but with a pure heart and a miracle happens. Stars fall from the sky as golden coins. It is the moment in which we do not hold on to anything anymore and suddenly everything is given to us. A moment of complete trust allows us to move into a dimension beyond our imagination.

To say yes even if we don´t know anything requires courage, patience and trust in the unknown. We open up and move into the empty space of our longing, naked and bare yet held by essence.

This is possible through our female power which we can sense and access in dance in a simple and easy way. The different dance steps allow us to trust the moment and to receive its gifts. The stars take a hold of us in their infinity as we dance. In this way, we too can become wondrous dancing star thalers. While dancing, we open up to the whole which is shining through our being.

We will work with dances out of the space of the heart®, free dances, meditation 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

We will begin on Saturday with dinner at 18.00 and end on Friday with breakfast.

Euro 649 includes the workshop fee, meals and housing (transfer to Polli Talu and international travel is not included).
