Tantra Yoga, Liquid Breath: Subtle Body Retreat (Mozambique)
May 12 - May 19$1450
7 Night – Luxury Wild Dolphin + Yoga Retreat
With Valentina Leo, Rhianne van der Linde & Courtney Ward
This is the invitation we extend to you! Swimming with dolphins is a direct transmission of the liquid state…when they make eye contact with you, they flood you with pure love. Swimming with dolphins is an encounter with profound and direct intimacy with life. These magnificent, highly intelligent ocean creatures hold nothing back – they dive into every moment with full presence and total delight. They find the beloved everywhere. Imagine receiving this kiss of life from the dolphins – and cultivating it in your own life.
Rooted in the ancient wisdom of the Vedas and the healing science of Ayurveda, this āsanas practice is the container for all our other practices. Focused on intrinsic relaxation of the physical body and the conscious mind, this sequence will meditate you into the Deepest Essence of your Being, where True Self reveals. From this space of infinite stillness, authentic expression can be found.
(This practice is accessible to all ages and levels of fitness)
Watch a video here to understand more:
Breath-work is the key to consciousness and the breath is the single most powerful tool we have as a force for waking up on the planet right now. The breath is the most intimate touch of existence…this first beloved caresses us from the inside all the time and yet we hardly notice its presence. Most of us have hardly begun to explore the power of the breath as a tool to deepen our intimacy with ourselves and with existence.
Tandava, is a Traditional Tantric Practice from the Kaula Tradition of Kashmir – a very slow, mystical dance that leads to the perception of the Cosmic Body and Attunement to our Infinite Nature. As a traditional practice of Totality, Tandava can indeed catalyze the experience of Spiritual Awakening. Using breath sound & movement we will explore the pathways that open as we surrender to sexual energy as a vehicle for awakening, deepening awareness and sensation. If our lovemaking is with all of existence as an act of devotion, then our sexual energy is like a rippling blue flame – a cool fire that ripples under our skins and sets every part of our bodies alight.
Accommodation in Tartaruga, Coastal Forest Luxury Tented Camp
Tucked away in the coastal forest canopy right on the beach, the camp offers total privacy. With a maximum capacity of 16 guests, we offer you an exclusive and luxurious wild dolphin swim getaway. Built on wooden platforms, all tents are spacious and airy, fully fitted with en-suite bathrooms, hot water, tea/coffee making facilities, electric fans, white linen and very comfortable beds boasting ‘walk-in’ mosquito nets. Shaded wooden walkways link each tent with the main deck, pool and boma areas.
Two beautiful communal gathering areas, one tucked into the forest canopy and the other over looking the magnificent Indian Ocean, a pool, a boma fireside area and of course your private balcony at each individual tent promises to make this a simply gorgeous, nature RICH stay.
