The retreat consists of a blend of yin-yang yoga, yoga nidra and meditation sessions. Yin-Yang yoga is a unique style of yoga in which Skadi brings together the best elements of the different body arts; astanga yoga, vinyasa yoga, movement therapy (mensendieck), yin yoga and chi-arts. The yin-yang yoga will help you to create the optimal balance in your yin and yang energy and to reinforce your chi.
In addition to the yin-yang yoga sessions, the program of the retreat includes yoga nidra and meditation. The yoga nidra sessions are focused on deep relaxation of the body including, for example, guided body scans.
The meditation is focused on creating a peaceful mind by sitting still, looking at your thoughts and emotions, while focusing on the breath.
