Yoga Retreat Bornholm. Stilhed, Meditation, Vandreture


A Silent retreat

What happens when we press the pause button on our habit of always having to talk to other people? Can you be quiet with others? Can you be quiet alone? These are questions that seem simple, but can reveal a lot about our habit patterns and conditioning.

On Saturday and Sunday we will be in silence most of the day.

We will move through the superficial talk of the mind and touch on the deep silence of being.

Some people find the idea of silence challenging, but it’s actually our natural state. By placing ourselves in an optimal environment this becomes clear.

Course Structure

On this retreat we combine yoga, meditation, mindfulness and walking in nature. They each support each other. Normally we walk in the morning and practice yoga in the afternoon.

Going offline to reconnect

Imagine giving your self the gift to be offline for a weekend! By disconnecting from the Internet and mobile devices, you have a chance to reconnect with yourself and nature.

Listening creates space

When you take the space and time to just BE instead of doing, something happens.
Giving yourself time without the constant flow of information we are normally bombarded with. Giving yourself time to listen rather than to speak. A space opens up for you to step outside of your normal habits and patterns. You get a different and broader perspective that strengthens your ability to make the best choices for yourself.
We will work with how you can move from habitual response patterns in everyday life to a place of silence and flow, and how you can integrate it into all aspects of your life.

We will do meditations and journaling with these aims:

  • To stop focusing on the negative in your life
  • Finding gratitude in your life
  • To be present in every moment
  • Being able to accept things as they are, without needing to change them – and the immense freedom it offers.

Mindful Yoga

You will be guided to become more aware and present in your body and your mind. I will help you to discover any blockages where energy is not flowing freely. You benefit both physically, emotionally and mentally, and you get the tools to be able to let go, get more freedom at all levels and “come home to yourself.”

We take time to explore poses for a while, rather than doing dynamic flows. We work with physical yoga exercises, but they are never just physical. I will guide you all the time into a deeper presence with yourself.

Breathing is life

During the retreat you will connect deeper with your breath and understand more of its close connection to the body, feelings, thoughts and presence.

You will learn many techniques, including:

  • How to relax and strengthen your body
  • Specific exercises for individual places you need to work with the body
  • To come down in the body (rather than to be mostly in the head, which we are often)
  • To be in the present here and now.

Nature

Nature has an amazing effect on our mind and our whole energy system. Being in nature automatically gives more vitality, energy and inner peace. It helps us to feel and sense ourselves.

Around Bornholm Yoga and Retreat Center we are blessed with some of Denmark’s most beautiful scenery.

We will start each morning by taking walks in silence, as walking meditation. It may be along the rocky coast, on the beach, in the woods, or along the rivers and lakes. Maybe we will sit and meditate or do a writing exercise at some of the sites.

If the weather is nice, we eat an early lunch in the open.

Early afternoon we have yoga for about 3 hours either in our beautiful yoga hall overlooking the ocean or outside on the grass.

Saturday we eat dinner by the sea at our local beach (weather dependant)

The walking will take place at slow pace, so all can participate regardless of fitness level.

It will not be about how far we can walk, the focus will be on how we walk and how we can be present and connected with the magic of nature around us. I will guide you to help you in this

Free flow writing – stream of consciousness

We will work a bit with writing, not from the head and not in a way where we constantly evaluate and judge ourselves, before we put pen to paper. In stead, we’ll work to pause our ¨inner critic¨ and write freely from the heart (and all the other organs).

When we allow ourselves to write in this way, we connect with a flow and a wisdom which is much more powerful than what our small heads can produce.

It’s a great tool for the times when you just feel you are stuck in something – a feeling, a pattern or a belief system. Also, it’s a really good way of training to listen more to your own intuition.

Who can participate?

You don’t need a lot of experience with yoga & meditation. All you need is curiosity and a desire to become more aware of yourself (and no, you can not be too stiff 😉 )

If you are an experienced yogi, I can guide you to go even deeper and more subtle. People that come from different yoga backgrounds often have eye-opening realizations of how different their practice can also be.

Silence is a key component of this weekend, you must be willing to experience being in silence and discover what this creates. We practice noble silence so for practical purposes you can talk to other participants (for example, “pass me the salad”) You can also ask questions to the teacher. What we refrain from is any unnecessary communication and general chit chat.

Because we are such a small group, it is very personal teaching and there is plenty of time and space for your needs.
