Silence Weekend and contemplative retreat Yoga, meditation and Mindfulness on the Hoorneboeg estate

We look back on the past year and contemplate the next year 2020. What do we want to continue with, stop and start?

We spend the weekend in silence. You get yin yoga to still more still and go inside. We meditate to increase the mind's ability to concentrate and thereby still the mind. Afterwards the mind is ready to question through analytical questions of insight or the Vipassana meditation method.

There are silence walks, vegan meals and relax massages.

Yoga provides ...

a healthy and relaxed body, thus paving the way for a deeper inner look and feel. We examine and experience our three bodies: the physical body (attitudes), the energetic / emotional body (feeling) and the mental body (thinking). With power, inspiration and connection as a starting point, you learn through yoga and mindfulness exercises to recognize and understand your automatic thinking and behavior patterns. Through the insights during these lessons you are able to better shape your life and to broaden your consciousness. This way you learn to function more effectively, both at home and at work. 

Throughout the weekend you can enjoy a nice collection of yoga books and magazines, nature walks, get to know inspiring people and you can you use the environment for your stillness. In between, delicious vegetarian meals are prepared.

What is Yin Yoga?

At Yin Yoga you calmly get into a position and the asanas are held for three to five minutes. In this way the connective tissue is slowly stretched and hydrated and the joints remain flexible. In this way space is created in the connective tissue and joints. Everything in our body has a layer of connective tissue. Connective tissue supports, connects, protects our organs and gives our body structure.

By stretching the muscles through Yin Yoga, tension and stress are released. In this way you not only create space in your body, but also in your head and heart.

Yin Yoga has even more benefits. In this way it stimulates a good flow of prana (life energy) in the body. This life energy flows through the meridians into the body and into the bloodstream. Meridians are narrow energy channels in the skin. These energy lines are all interconnected. The prana that flows through your body through these meridians ultimately has a positive effect on health. This is good for your organs, your immune system and your emotional state.

Who is Yin Yoga for?

Yin Yoga can be healing for people where the balance between Yin and Yang is lost. In our busy lives, the Yang energy is often predominant. Yin Yoga can help you to regain this balance.

In addition, people with stiff connective tissue can benefit greatly from Yin Yoga. By deep stretching during the asanas, Yin Yoga can help you to make the connective tissue more mobile. Yin Yoga is also highly recommended for anyone who wants to become more flexible.

Not only physically can Yin Yoga mean a lot to you, but also emotionally Yin Yoga can help you enormously. Yin Yoga is a meditative form of yoga. While holding the asanas, you focus your attention within, so that you can recognize and recognize what is deep within you.

During the asanas you have the space to observe thoughts and feelings. The wisdom that you find in this space can eventually be taken back into the day.
