Exploring the elements Jivamukti retreat with Moena de Jong
In this Exploring the elements Jivamukti retreat with Moena de Jong, filled with abundance like Vinyasa, Alignment, Pranayma, meditation, Shastra (Philosophy), Mantra, Yin.
We will explore the practise from the perspective of the Elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether) and experience how those different components in ourselves and life are more related than we see at first sight. Now this is yoga – Patanjali describes about the journey to Self realisation. Yoga is translated as to unite. An interesting point of view from us, humans, as we mostly look at ourselves and the other as different beings.
A beautiful dive into your Sadhana (spiritual practise) for practitioners with some experience and everyone with an open and curious mind. Be ready for Yoga Fun!
Gift your mind the space to unwind, your body the chance to restore and your soul the beauty of connecting. The perfect opportunity to let go, release and reset our systems.
Our main location is a 19th century farmhouse – La Masseria – situated in the luscious natural landscape of southeastern Sicily surrounded by the breathtaking Mediterranean Sea.
Danena Sicily is a one-hour drive south from Catania airport, on the island’s east coast. On a country lane away from noise and neighbours, it’s just 10 minutes south from the unspoilt World Heritage town of Noto – one of Italy’s most beautiful historic centres.
A 10-minute drive east is the Nature Reserve of Vendicari, a heaven of wildlife and some of the island’s most beautiful and deserted golden-sand beaches. We have four apartments, 10 beautiful double bedrooms and can accommodate up to 18 people.
A fresh water outdoor pool, three patios where to eat or simply relax, and a stunning sunset terrace. We would love to welcome you here for a regenerating week or for a long weekend with friends. A beautiful setting close to nature that helps you unwind and rejuvenate.
When Moena started feeling the need for deepening of her teaching skills she enrolled in a two-years’ training based on the Critical Alignment principle, followed by a yoga teacher training at Svaha Yoga (Jivamukti inspired). She practised Vipassana meditation and took part in workshops with various international teachers. Recently she got her 300 hrs certification with Jivamukti in New York.
She is also part of the teaching staff at the Nieuwe Yogaschool, where she teaches Pranayama for the Vinyasa and Yin teacher trainings.
Moena’s classes include both dynamic Jivamukti inspired yoga and Hatha yoga in a meditative flow. She finds it important for her students to follow their intuition and refrain from self-criticism. Pranayama and the other steps of the 8-fold path are always included in her classes.
Moena encourages her students to find meditation in every asana, to surrender to the present moment and never to loose their joy in practicing. Teachers, students, children and the flow of life itself are her greatest sources of inspiration.
