barefootyoga.me – Quantum Soul (16th July – 22nd July 2018)

Quantum Soul Retreat 2018

barefootyoga.me Retreats for Heart n’ Soul ॐ
In our Retreats we are teaching basic and advanced techniques with 8 hours of daily practice including Acrobatics, Functional Movement, Yoga, Contact Improvisation & Bodywork. Together we are going to explore the offerings of a professional movement based mentoring customised to the practitioner’s individual level and needs. This journey of self-discovery will not only help you to deepen your practice but will also unfold an essential aspect of your most inner self.

About the Practice:
This retreat is offering you a wide range of playful elements, including important principals of Acrobatics (L-basing, Partner-Acro, Whips, Pops & Flows), Monkey Business, Open Play, Contact Improv, Axis Syllabus and much more. The heart of this week will be about cultivating trust, strength and flexibility, within ourselves and as a community of dedicated movers.

Your Holliday Package:

Alongside the intensive practice (its up to you how many classes you’re going join) you will find many opportunities to spend your time outdoors. You have the chance to refresh yourself in the Lake Bohinj, take a walk around the lake, explore the surrounding nature of Triglavski National Park and visit the stunning Sevica waterfalls. If you love water this is the place to be! Local sport agencies are offering you different activities like cave explorations, SUP or rafting. Bled, a beautiful Slovenian town close by, and has some cosy coffee shops to offer.


Daily routine:
Following an extensive warmup in functional movement & yoga, you will learn how to build up the day with an important skill set in Acrobatics. In this time of the day each one of you will find their own level and achievements. The integration and focus on inversions, handstands & L-basing will be an important foundation to kick off into the day. In the afternoon we dedicate our time to the playful side of moving. The integration of new flows and high level progressions will be your main game. We will round the day up with a feasty dinner and a final connective bodywork practice and yin yoga.

The Venue:

Surrounded by mountains and crystal clear water we will find shelter in the midst of natures finest, quiet and serene. The gentle humming of the river is so omnipresent that it’ll be easy to pour our full energy into the adventure of movement exploration. Follow the river for about 3 minutes to reach Lake Bohinj and enjoy the fresh water up close. Every night when the sky is clear and the moon comes out, it is an breathtaking experience to gaze at the moon reflected on the lake.
