'Living with Ease' Tantrik Yoga Retreat Portugal
stunning surroundings of Montevelho Eco Retreats, Portugal, and learn how the original Classical Tantrik Yoga practices effectively connect you to a source of inner power, freedom and joy, without having to abandon our responsibilities or disconnect from daily life.
The phrase 'Tantrik Yoga' refers to a panoply of powerful ancient practices of meditation, awareness cultivation, and activation of the energy body. Tantrik Yoga must be clearly distinguished from modern postural yoga and sexual practices sometimes labeled 'tantric', though it can be combined with either or both of these.
World-renowned teacher Dr. Christopher “Hareesh” Wallis, Scholar and practitioner of Non-Dual Shiva Shakti Tantra, will lead Satsangs and Micro-Meditations throughout this 6-day-retreat. Since most of the source material for Classical Tantra exists only in Sanskrit (and Tibetan), it is rare to find a teacher who can read those sources and present their contents in clear, accessible modern English. Christopher Wallis has become well-known for his down-to-earth accessibility and clarity in presenting truly powerful and impactful teachings and practices. Hareesh will guide you through a rich panoply of teachings and practices from the Shiva-Shakti tradition, carefully curated to create a maximally impactful and life-changing experience.
The retreat will be enhanced by carefully instructed yoga asana classes with Anusara yoga teacher Sandra von Zabiensky, which focus on practicing with ease and grace.
You will leave this retreat not only nourished but also with a new sense of freedom and joy which are not affected by life circumstances. Free yourself with ease and joy and discover your life unfolding in grace.
