Event description
Join Eduardo Terzidis and I for this innovative immersion in the practices of yoga, creativity and nature connection.

About this Event

Yoga traditionally means to combine and unite. By connecting with our bodies and breaths we can go deeper in the knowledge of ourselves and learn how to live a more authentic and in tune life. Yoga and meditation help us clear the blockages in our own bodies and minds allowing creativity to flow. Art then becomes the natural expression of our inner voice. Through movement, drawing, poetry, clay making, we can give voice to all the stories that inhabit us, that so often we keep hidden inside.

Within this 5 day immersion we will set the river of creativity in motion and we will use nature as our wider container. As a matter of fact, we both deeply believe that part of our sense of disconnection originates in our sense of separation from the natural world. By reawakening our sense of wonder for the natural world, we can kindle our sense of wonder for our own lives. By using nature as a partner and teacher we can find new resources in ourselves.
