Yantra Yoga, Vajra Dance, and Kuma Kumari
with Mira Mironova, Zoli Cser and Monika Lakatos
August 25th - 31st
The idea of this retreat is to dive deeper in two remarkable practices of Dzogchen path – Vajra Dance and Yantra Yoga. The program is designed so that one will have the opportunity to feel stronger the interconnection between these two practices, experiencing the influence of each and their powerful effect on one’s condition, progressing in understanding as well. Within seven days of constant practices guided by authorized instructors the participants will be able to experience great relaxation. Sun, sea and mud treatments will provide your marvelous enjoyment helping to release tensions and to feel renewed - full with fresh energy and vital strength.
In case somebody would like to participate in this retreat but knows only one of both practices there will be possibility for visiting classes of one's choice.
In the afternoon kids will have the possibility to do Kumar Kumari. Chögyal Namkhai Norbu taught Kumar Kumari Yantra Yoga with specific consideration of children’s physical dimension, energy, and breathing. Kumar Kumari is unique in that it combines breathing and movement with sounds that have a powerful effect (mantras). Its beneficial potentiality promotes healthy development for the children who practice it.
So the main point of the Dzogchen Family Vacation Retreat is to give a possibility for every family member to train, practice and spend not only useful but also joyful time together. So there is reason for everybody to come and to be happy joining this summer retreat.
