barefootyoga.me – Quantum Soul (20th July – 26th July 2019)

Quantum Soul Retreat 2019

barefootyoga.me Retreats for Heart n’ Soul ॐ
In our retreats we are teaching basic and advanced techniques with up to 8 hours of daily practice, including Acrobatics, Yoga, Contact Improvisation, Thai Massage & Meditation. Together we are going to explore the offerings of a professional movement based mentoring customized 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 innermost self.

About the Practice:

This retreat is offering you a wide range of playful elements, including important principles of Acrobatics (L-basing, Washing Machines, Whips, Pops & Flows), Functional Movement, Open Play, Contact Improvisation, Axis Syllabus, Martial Arts, Bodywork, Yin Yoga and much more. The heart of this week will be about cultivating trust, strength and flexibility, within ourselves and as a group.

Our Goal:

Doesn’t matter if you are a pro, or have little to no experience in AcroYoga or Acrobatics. We will be teaching two levels simultaneously to make sure that everyone is getting their dose of matching input. Beginner/Intermediate participants will learn a solid, holistic foundation in AcroYoga & Partner Acrobatics. Intermediate/Advanced participants will be focusing on L-basing Tempos (whips, pops & dynamic entries/exits, as well the art of hand2hand and handbalancing).

Your Holliday Package:
Alongside the intensive practice (its up to you how many classes you’re going to join), you will find many opportunities to spend your time outdoors. Refresh yourself in 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 a variety of activities like cave explorations, SUP and rafting.

Staying in the house:
All rooms are equipped with blankets, pillows, bedding and towels. Sleeping indoors means you will share a room with 1-3 other people and sometimes even share a double bed with someone. In case you desire more privacy we recommend to go for the tent option (more details in the next section).

Staying in a tent:
As we are based in the national park, camping is only allowed in the permitted areas (i.e. the official campsite Zlatorog Lake Bohinj). Once you have filled out the registration form we will send you a PDF with further information about how to prepare yourself. Please note that in case you are planning to camp you will have to bring your own camping gear (tent, mattress, sleeping bag, etc.)

Daily routine:
Following a playful warm-up of functional movement & yoga, we will work on building up a substantial 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 and L-basing flows will be an essential foundation to start with. In the afternoon we dedicate our time to the playful side of moving. There will be optional classes, contact improvisation and personal movement coaching waiting for you. Take this time as an opportunity to work on specific tricks and refine them with your barefootyoga teachers. After a full day of moving & exploring we will round the day up with a feasty dinner and a connective bodywork practice or yin yoga.

The Venue:
Surrounded by mountains and crystal clear water we will reside amidst a Slovenian natural park. Your riverside rooms within our shared apartments include access to a private kitchen and a bathroom. 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 (top 3 cleanest rivers in Europe) for about 5 minutes to reach Lake Bohinj and enjoy the fresh water up close. Every night when the sky is clear and the moon is out, it is a breathtaking experience to gaze at the reflection of the moon on the lake.

Dining with us:
We strive to provide you local and seasonal food from eco-villages and organic markets around the area. Three times a day we will tickle your palate with vegetarian delights from our barefootyoga.me kitchen.
