Welcome to Manifest 2017, a Salsa & Yoga Retreat
There is an English proverb saying: "When there is a Will, there is a Way". Two days ago, I was reminded of this by my beloved yoga guru Mokshapriya Shakti. It is my will to open doors for others and to bring a new awareness in order to create beauty in their lives.
“Manifest 2017,” a Dance & Yoga Retreat, is an opportunity to look at life under a different light and to understand that regardless of what is going on around us, we have the ability to ground ourselves and be supported by the universe. It is up to us to choose whether or not we allow ourselves to be drawn astray from our desired path because of challenging situations or to consciously re-center ourselves and manifest our desired future. But this is not an easy task, and if there is a lack of empathy by those around us we might feel like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. It is my intention to guide and assist in re-focusing and gaining balance throughout the practices of dance, yoga, and meditation.
We will engage in the daily practice of concentration using various exercises. We will create space within our bodies and will liberate the energy that needs to be released from its physical vessel along with any emotional residue by practicing asanas and other yoga poses. We will re-connect with our souls as we free up our spirits with dance and expand our consciousness through meditation.
It is my purest intention to uplift and share the benefits of these modalities with all the participants. And in doing so, bring in more light, more joy and more balance into our lives and ultimately, into our world.
