Walk the path of wholeness & heart connection with Zhineng Qigong and Feel & Flow Yoga
Come re-discover your center and find balance; dive-deep into the power of self-healing with Yin and Zhineng Qigong. Experience being pure consciousness, becoming an observer noticing everything; being aware of your thoughts, dreams, behaviors, and desires... Live the power of coherence, of aligning thoughts and feelings, and find the power to choose a new viewpoint.
During this event led by Anita Ilicic you are invited to give yourself time to disconnect from the constant stimulation of the external environment and reunite with silence. Here you will connect with yourself and with the infinite sea of energy and potential that exists around and within.
Throughout the event, we will explore intensive Zhineng Qigong and "Feel & Flow Yoga" and Meditation practices in this magical island environment to allow a deeper homecoming experience to arise.
The Feel & Flow, Yin-inspired yoga classes give us time to feel and explore the inner environment of our body and mind. One of the greatest benefits of Feel & Flow Yoga is that we are given time to contemplate, breathe and feel the physical, energetic, and mental layers of our being. Mindfulness and healing imagery will increase the harmonizing effect. Each Yoga class will include a 30-minute guided or silent meditation to contemplate what has arisen during the class and set intentions.
The Zhineng Qigong sessions aim to relax your heart, mind, and body and increase your self-awareness and the natural energy exchange between you and nature. The (mostly standing) exercises make your spine soft and flexible. By becoming aware of the energizing, opening effects of this practice, you will explore how to work with energy and consciousness.
