Introduction

You love to dance and like to practice Yoga? You always wanted to combine the both? Then we recommend this Dance & Yoga Holiday in sunny Ražanj. Through the connection of rhythm, movement and Asanas, combined with the special mediterranean way of live you will harmonize your body and your soul. The rushing sea, sound bath, meditation and the direct view on the bay from our Yoga Shala, let you refuel your energy and forget your everyday life. The combination of Yoga & Dance opens fully new aspects of life.

 

 After the five-days-break you will have returned to yourself - grounded and refreshed!

 

Practice

This Dance & Yoga retreat connects elements of Vinyasa Yoga, Shadow Yoga, grounding flows of Afro-Dance, as well as Pranayama techniques and meditation. The Yoga sequences of the retreat are accompanied by different beats and music. Binaural beats (sound bath) are used for meditation, Yin Yoga excercises and breathing techniques, to stimulate the brain waves. At the retreat we will work with power, weight, flow, space and time. Fine tuning of the body is the goal.

 

Elements of Shadow Yoga (a mix of Asanas, Vinyasa, dynamic excercises of the martial arts, Tai Chi and traditional Indian dances) are incorporated into the retreat. Out of elements of Hip Hop Dance like crumping, stomping, chest popping and arm swinging, we will flow directly into the sun salutation. So called „grounding moves“ inspired by Afrobeats and Dancehall will stimulate your foot work (Pada Bandha), balance, coordination and the agility of your hips.

 

The alternation between muscle tension and muscle relaxation creates the flow in your body. Sequences are executed on the beat and will be combined with Asana moves and positions. Different positions are varied resulting in a harmonic and creative flow of the body movement. Dance & Meditation on the Beat.
