Stress is a universal issue and the bane of modern life. Perfection, competition and fast-paced lifestyles are at the root. And while massages and spa retreats offer a quick fix to blow off some steam and relax a journey of introspection can help to reconnect with yourself, find balance and a sense of tranquillity.
If this sounds like your kind of thing a five-day retreat of self-exploration, release, expression and empowerment is approaching. Between May 11 and 16 at Yurts in Cyprus in Paphos, a Jivamukti Yoga and Rising Voice Retreat will take place.
With the aim to observe personal patterns, connect to the body, innermost sensations and find ways to transform, the retreat will work on unwinding and releasing all that doesn’t serve your holistic journey.
The days will involve meditative, dynamic asana Jivamukti Yoga practices followed by Pranayama techniques before moving on to the voice. A gentle afternoon yoga session will follow where sound will be used to help energy flow in areas that are denser and more constricted.
There will be two evenings of sound meditation and Bhakti, which will include instrument-playing and movement to the song. “Our Bhakti sessions will be inspired by the ancient Indian alchemy of Raga,” say the organisers “by African heritage singing, by traditional polyphony Balkan roots and Middle-eastern soul-speaking melodies, where we use the voice as our only instrument.
“Join us in this altogether unique week that will take you in deep places of your being where you can sense the innate wisdom of your body and your breath. “
