Kundalini Yoga & Sound Healing Retreat 18-20 February 2022 Ardennes, Belgium

Restoring Compassion & Self Love

 

After the transformational experience of our last Kundalini Yoga & Sound Healing retreat together, I would like to propose some dates for transformational retreats.

 

Experience the best of Kundalini Yoga including morning Sadhana (sacred morning practice) before daylight, transformative meditation and praanayam, mantra chanting, deep relaxation with Singing Bowls and Gongs, and BreathWalks. Explore within and allow your energies to flow and release emotional blockages. Balance your stress response through a revitalized glandular system, awaken your senses through Breathwalk and connect on a deeper level with your true essence.

 

Kundalini Yoga retreats can be a launchpad for change, release or other forms of transformation. It is recommended to have already experienced some Kundalini Yoga prior to the retreat. This can be arranged through my online classes.

Kundalini Yoga & Sound Healing retreat - July 2021 Ardennes, Belgium

A Transformational Journey through the Chakras


Chakras are centers of consciousness. They are focal points of energy that have a profound effect on our daily lives. The particular chakra where the majority of your kundalini energy is primarily focused – or polarized – influences your basic behaviour and attitudes.

This relationship between behaviour and your dominant chakra is key because energy acts like a magnet. We tend to attract vibrations to ourselves that are on the same wavelength as the chakras from which we are operating. Kundalini Yoga allows the kundalini energy to rise, balancing and coordinating all of the chakras.

Kundalini Yoga does not force the kundalini to rise; it prepares the body to allow it to rise so that you can experience your higher consciousness. When this balancing of the chakras occurs, you become empowered; you are able to be a compassionate, conscious, and capable human being.

 

At this Kundalini Yoga Retreat you will experience and transform yourself through the eight major chakras.

 

Transformational Journey through the Chakras

Option A - Setting the Foundation - The Lower Triangle 

 The retreat of 16-18 July will set the foundations and address our instinctive survival requirements for security. This base will pave the gateway to the heart chakra where fear and insecurity can be transformed into compassion.

« Understand with Compassion or you will Misunderstand the times » 4th Sutra of the Aquarian Age

 

Option B - Awakening Intuition and Consciousness - The Upper triangle

The retreat of 19-21 July will balance and stimulate the higher energy centres allowing the kundalini energy to freely circulate and waken up our intuition and creative consciousness leading to a state of bliss that one can experience in deep meditation and when there is no duality.

 

Option C - Elevation and Liberation - Lower and Upper Triangles 

For those who are able to go through the complete Journey from Friday 19 to Wednesday 21 July, ideally, stay for the full 6 days. Or you can choose either option as they are stand alone modules which can be combined. 

 

Schedule

Depending on your choice of Option.

Option A: Friday 16/07 @ 11:00 to Sunday 18/07 @ 14:00

2) When do I have to make up my mind ?

Deposits are payable 6 weeks in advance. You will receive specific information within an appropriate timeframe.

 

3) I've never been on a retreat like this before, is 6 days too long ?

Based on my own experience and the feedback of participants at the first retreat, I am proposing 6 days as it allows more time for integration AND relaxation. All the sessions will bring about some level of transformation/elevation so I recommend that you do participate in everything. However if you decide to skip a session, that's also OK. The 3 day option is there to allow people to choose a shorter and less intense experience.

4) What do I have to bring ?

You will receive a packing list at least 4 weeks in advance. There are yoga mats, cushions and blankets available on site.

 

5) I'm a beginner, is it possible to join the retreat ?

Kundalini Yoga retreats can be a launchpad for change, release or other forms of transformation. It is recommended to have already experienced some Kundalini Yoga prior to the retreat. This will allow you to get more from your retreat experience. This can be arranged through my online classes.
