The perfect winter yoga holiday
with Kate McKenzie

A wonderful opportunity to take some luxurious time for yourself, to restore and nourish mind, body and soul and prepare for the year ahead in the truly healing environment of La Finca. The morning class will gently open the body and attune the mind to the breath, the class will slowly move and build into a flowing and dynamic sequence, always incorporating the cultivation of awareness, physical alignment, breath and the chakras (energy centers). The afternoon sessions will take us deeper into the chakra system as a means of recognizing our gifts and shadows. This awareness will support our Sankalpa – the setting of an intention for the year ahead. Through powerful kundalini kriyas, chanting, meditation and guided rest, we will hear the true messages of our hearts, light up our intuition, and ignite the fire in our bellies, ready for action.

The “Form” is a sequence of flowing movements similar to Tai Chi and Qi Gong. It is a soft and deep Vinyasa Yoga practice originated in the Himalayas.  Samura also integrates breath, visualization, healing colours and sounds to weave together these rich and powerful traditions. The Yoga Holiday is suitable for all levels and directions of Yoga. Samura is a certified Anahata Yoga teacher.

The magic of touch – a Biodanza week
with Gabriele Freyhoff

Contact is a basic need of the human being, even bigger than the need of food. Contact and being touched have effects up to the unconsciousness. By touch we feel our body shape and we develop our self-image. We also improve our self-esteem, then by touch we feel cherished and loved. The issue contact is directly associated to skin. Our skin, which embraces us like a huge coat, is an organ, which receives tactile and censorial impressions and which responds to each contact with certain sensations. Receptors of the skin respond to heat, frostiness, touch, itching, tickle, to different forms of pain and vibrations. The skin is the biggest organ of our body and holds about 15-20% of our body weight. The average person possesses about 1,7 sq. m. skin, in which there are around 5 millions tiny nerve ends, which transmit the sensations. The skin has also an important function for the immune system.
In Biodanza we will have contact full of sensibility. So they become caresses. These caresses can really nourish us. We will dance and savor everything in this week.

with Padma Tewes

You are invited to release old boundaries and to relive visionary moments in ecstasy. In one of the ancient healing-rituals of human race you will be touched deeply and be able to enter a new space of experience. You will feel an intensive liveliness in yourself and discover your pure power. We dance with blindfold. Following the music and letting your body lead you, you will reach spheres to which your mind has no entrance. In this manner you can find your own movement and rhythm and feel free to let your emotions flow in a protected space. The dance rituals will be combined with meditative processes and group sharing to integrate your experiences.

Padma Tewes (Dipl. Psych.) developed a connection between verbal and body-healingwork (W. Reich) on the base of the awareness that our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual perceptions are all different manifestations of the one energy of life.
