Balanced You - 7 Day Yoga Retreat
Time & Location
About the Event
In the 7-day “Balanced You" yoga retreat in tropical northern Queensland (Mission Beach, 2 hours south of Cairns), you will be exploring and balancing out your masculine and feminine energies.
This yoga retreat promises to be joyful and challenging, with early morning starts to salute the sun while it rises from the ocean, various types of asana practices, moving meditation, cleansing breathwork, delicious food, and plenty of time to enjoy the amazing rainforest and beach to swim and relax.
We all posses and use both energies, regardless of gender. In constantly undervaluing and disrespecting an innate part of ourselves, we struggle to recognise the whole perfect being that we are. Learning to respect feminine traits along with masculine, first in ourselves and then in others, will do a lot for not only our mental and physical health, but also society at large.
Based on both Anneriek's Goddess Sequences and Shiva Sequences, this retreat you will help you find connection to and balance between your Shakti and your Shiva to help you create a world in which you live in balance with others and the earth, and with your own masculine and feminine nature. The masculine – Shiva – is source of consciousness/awareness. The feminine – Shakti – is the life force behind all evolution and all change.
This retreat offers practices that allow you to connect to your body, to develop mental awareness, to challenge and laugh at yourself, to slow down and arrive in the the present moment. You will be able to unwind, to let go of your rules, your responsibilities, your worries, so that you can be more playful, connect with nature, and deepen your awareness to enhance your happiness and well-being. You will be guided through meditation and yoga (flow and yin) sessions daily to reconnect to and heal your body and mind. Anneriek creates a trusting and open environment to share and explore your experience.
