barefootyoga.me – Quantum Soul Retreat (13th July – 19th July 2020)

Quantum Soul Retreat (13th July – 19th July 2020)
This training offers you a wide range of playful elements, including important principles of acrobatics (L-basing, washing machines, whips, pops and flows), functional movement, open play, contact improvisation, martial arts, bodywork, yin yoga and community building. The core of this week will be about cultivating trust, strength and flexibility, within ourselves and as a group of dedicated movers.

Our Teaching Style:
Each season we select a fine variety of facilitators to create a unique and lasting learning environment. Our classes are held in an uplifting, fun and refreshing way. By splitting the main workshops into two levels we can ensure that beginners as much as intermediate practitioners are being met on their level of experience.

Your Holiday Package:
Alongside an extensive schedule filled with 5 workshops a day, you will find many opportunities to spend your time outdoors. We strive to only chose the best locations to make sure our participants get enough time in a nurturing environment.

Daily routine:
Following a warm-up of functional movement and yoga, we will work on building up a fundamental skill set in acrobatics. The integration and focus on inversions, handstands and L-basing flows will be an essential part of your morning practice. In the afternoon, we will dedicate our time to a more playful side of moving. Depending on the group there will be classes in contact improvisation, martial arts, partner games and 2 hours of FTC (free training with coaches) waiting for you. This will be your opportunity to work on specific skills and refine them with the coaches on site. After a full day of movement exploration, we will round off the day with a nourishing meal and a connective evening therapeutics class.

The Venue:
With the magnificent view of the Skofja Loka Hills, the Karavanke and the Julian Alps we will be finding shelter in a big farm house made for up to 35 people. We also offer 10 camping spots in case people want to be fully immersed into nature. Each room has a bathroom and a shared kitchen. In addition to the peaceful surroundings and fresh air, the certified eco farm (who produces milk and cheese) offers many opportunities for recreation throughout the day.

Dining with us:
We strive to provide local and seasonal food from the eco-farm itself and organic markets around the area as much as possible. Three times a day we will tickle your palate with vegan and vegetarian delights made by our famous barefootyoga kitchen crew.

Lorena Schneider

What fascinates her about Acroyoga is its capacity to connect people from all walks and teach them to communicate needs and boundaries through movement within a safe and fun space. Ever since she stumbled across a crowd in the park stacking people on top of each other, she has found herself in a community driven by teamwork, inclusiveness, and mutual support. At the end of the day, the biggest reward for her is to see your beautiful faces when you realize you just achieved something you thought was impossible.

Lorena brings awarenes to communication and expression into her classes and co-teaches a variety of handstand and partner acro to the barefootyoga.me community - we are happy to have her joining us!
