Quantum Soul Retreat 2018

barefootyoga.me Retreats for Heart n’ Soul
In our Retreats we are teaching basic and advanced techniques with 8 hours of daily
practice including Acrobatics, Functional Movement, Yoga, Contact Improvisation &
Bodywork. Together we are going to explore the offerings of a professional movement
based mentoring customised to the practitioner’s individual level and needs. This journey
of self-discovery will not only help you to deepen your practice but will also unfold an
essential aspect of your most inner self.
 
About the Practice:
This retreat is offering you a wide range of playful elements, including important principals
of Acrobatics (L-basing, Partner-Acro, Whips, Pops & Flows), Monkey Business, Open
Play, Contact Improv, Axis Syllabus and much more. The heart of this week will be about
cultivating trust, strength and flexibility, within ourselves and as a community of dedicated
movers.
 
Your Holliday Package:
Alongside the intensive practice (its up to you how many classes you’re going join) you will
find many opportunities to spend your time outdoors. You have the chance to refresh
yourself in the Lake Bohinj, take a walk around the lake, explore the surrounding nature of
Triglavski National Park and visit the stunning Sevica waterfalls. If you love water this is
the place to be! Local sport agencies are offering you different activities like cave
explorations, SUP or rafting. Bled, a beautiful Slovenian town close by, and has some cosy
coffee shops to offer.
 
Daily routine:
Following an extensive warmup in functional movement & yoga, you will learn how to build
up the day with an important skill set in Acrobatics. In this time of the day each one of you
will find their own level and achievements. The integration and focus on inversions,
handstands & L-basing will be an important foundation to kick off into the day. In the
afternoon we dedicate our time to the playful side of moving. The integration of new flows
and high level progressions will be your main game. We will round the day up with a feasty
dinner and a final connective bodywork practice and yin yoga.

it’ll be easy to pour our full energy into the adventure of movement exploration. Follow the
river for about 3 minutes to reach Lake Bohinj and enjoy the fresh water up close. Every
night when the sky is clear and the moon comes out, it is an breathtaking experience to
gaze at the moon reflected on the lake.
