Easter Retreat in Casalborgone, Italia
Cherry Blossom (Sakura)
13 – 18 April, 2017
Yoga practice is a retreat. When we stand on our mats, we retreat from our everyday life in order to explore other aspects of our world. We put some things aside so that we can allow ourselves to focus more clearly. Then we take that knowledge back to everyday life.
To go on retreat for a longer period of time, i.e. a long weekend, a week, or a month, gives the opportunity to deepen that practice. We relieve ourselves from many responsibilities like work, shopping, cooking, cleaning up and social activities. We can relax into a rhythm of practice, sustenance and rest. Nature supports this process.
Italy is beautiful in April and the hills of Casalborgone are white with cherry blossoms. In Italy, as in Japan, the moment of the perfect blossom is celebrated with walks and picnics among the trees. This retreat is five days. Less experienced students are also welcomed.
