The Sound of silence is a wonderful combination of yoga, meditation, detox, sound healing, dance and personal therapy on body and mind.
This retreat is unique in the combination of live sound being played during the yoga practices, which will help you to let go deeper into yourself in a very natural way.
Leave the worries behind, let go of stress and allow yourself to enter in this space of silence. Your body will balance itself and retrieve healing naturally.
This retreat will bring you to a state of stillness through daily practice.
From the 11th to the 17th of January 2016 the sound of silence retreat will take place at The Source Hotel. A place full of positive vibrations hosting artists, musicians and music lovers. The rooms are dedicated to music with the owners’ favorites artists and the garden’s smells are a pure piece of heaven. Wether in the organic kitchen garden, the rooftop whith view on the Atlas mountains or many other areas, the practices will take place in different peaceful spots.
A day at The Source will be starting with daily herbals infusions and green detox juice full of nutrients and vital energy, followed by meditation and pranayama. These ancient breathing techniques cleanse the energy channels of the body and fills them up with light.
We will follow the morning with a Hatha Yoga practice in order to bring movement into your body. Yoga is union, the union starts when we align thoughts, words, feelings and actions.
