Olho Branco

Discover Your Nature – a Sense-Awakening Meditation & Movement retreat

Nature is simple and yet so complex. What does that mean for our lives and how can we embrace this paradox within ourselves? 

In this retreat, we will understand and move through the koshas, exploring and understanding the physical and the fine energetic layers that we embody and how they all play into our asana practice (and in fact into our flow of life!). We will play with asana and explore pranayama in a more profound way in order to understand our energetic nature with our mind as well as experience with all of our senses.
Are you ready to move away from someone else telling you how to move “correctly”? Do you want to reinvent your asana or meditation practice? Do you want to awaken your inner “movement-authority”? Do you want to become more authentic in your practice and with your life surroundings? 

Join stellar teachers Vincent Pezet (Geneva) and Jana Toepfer (Berlin/Aljezur) for this retreat and open your gateways by learning from nature. Let’s awaken all of our senses and train our ability to listen to them. This couldn’t be easier than at the wonderful property of Olho Branco, an organic farm set in the natural park of the wild Costa Vicentina in Southern Portugal. We will stay in the cozy farm house and will learn from the farm owners, Fernando and Eva, our lovely hosts, how to live more attuned to nature, recognizing and respecting rhythms and forces of nature and recognizing them as our own. 

Selbstständigkeit bedeutet, meinen Tag nach Tide und Wind zu gestalten – Yogalehrerin Jana Toepfer          

Some questions that we will explore during this retreat

What are the forces of nature? For example, how do you deal with gravity? Are you trusting into the grounding force in your practice? Which things in your life do you give gravity to and is this in align with your intention?
How does it feel to be more simple? To be less crowded in mind and energy field? How does it feel to taste a fresh, ripe fig straight from the tree? When was the last time that you actually went to bed when you felt tired? 
Let’s bathe deeply in the ocean of our senses, so we can bring them back – nourished & healthy – into our everyday lives. So that we may experience the dance of life fully

What to expect/what’s included: daily asana, subtle body movement & yoga philosophy workshops, yin yoga, pranayama & meditation sessions. Thai-massage workshop, guided meditations in beautiful spots in nature, soundjourney & herbal workshop. Homemade organic meals.
