Celebrating Stillness: Join Dagmar Spremberg & Gaudan on Jan 4-11, 2014
Price: ARP Prices + $100
One of the most precious gifts you can give yourself is the gift of stillness. Moments of simply breathing, whether alone or together, to just sit quiet and watch a beautiful sunset over the ocean, take in the fragrance of a tropical ylang ylang flower or listen to the sounds of the monkeys and birds…how often do you make time for stillness?
The aim of our vinyasa flow yoga retreat is not only to strengthen you physically, but also to bring you closer to your self, to a place where you are comfortable with stillness and refine your ability to listen more. You will deepen your practice this week as you learn to surrender more into your breathing. We will create more space in your body, leaving you feeling more spacious in your mind. You will explore new ways of nourishment on and off the mat.
Music is magic. It beautifully enhances our emotions and brings balance and harmony to our bodies, it also helps us to surrender and soften into the flow of life. The Hang is a very magical instrument, it is handmade in Switzerland and often used for sound healing. In this magical retreat we will enhance your practice with the melodies of the Hang to give you a deeper experience of your self. Mornings will be a more dynamic vinyasa and sunset sessions slow flow with Hang music.

In her vinyasa flow classes she emphasizes on the art of connecting breath and movement into a meditative flow, giving you a chance to soften and surrender while strengthening and deepening your practice.

Gaudan is a well known artist and muralist who has been living in Costa Rica for over 20 years. Besides his love for organic gardening and art he fell in love with the Hang instrument and after quite an interesting journey to finally receive one, he now enjoys playing it not only in Dagmar’s yoga classes, but also for “The Gaudan Project”, where he cooperates with other musicians and performance artists.
The following is a music video that goes with one of the songs on his latest album. www.thegaudanproject.bandcamp.com
“The Gaudan Project is BRILLIANT!…..you will love this!” - Elena Brower, Virayoga NYC
“This retreat experience left me with an amazing energy that has flowed through my veins this whole year long, and sweetened my thoughts and perceptions of the world around me in ways I could never describe. Through their music and movement, I learned new depths within myself and my practice, and felt so very much at ease; truly connected with these instructors. Daniel’s music has continued to be an inspiration to me, and I look forward to any chance to share it!” - Gracie M.
“The presence of the music was beautifully synced with your amazing flow of yoga. When I added my canvas of senses, that being the ocean, the monkeys and the smell of my favorite fragrance in bloom …. I realized how happy and blessed my life is and how much “at home” I was. Bless you, my beautiful friend. The love and light that you delivered touched me immensely.” - Christine S.
“I had the great pleasure of attending a 7-day yoga retreat with Dagmar and Daniel in Tulum. What an amazing experience! Dagmar’s insightful instruction, graceful flow and beautiful energy were inspiring. And the addition of Daniel’s hang music during our sunset sessions was pure magic. It was a truly memorable week and made a great impact on my practice.” - Mitch K.
