Each morning will begin with quietude and introspection in ‘formal’ practice, and will then translate into the afternoons, grounding into meditative and mindful hands-on building. This maintaining of awareness in all of daily life is at the very heart and intention of Yoga. During this time you will deepen into self-inquiry meditation, enjoy daily classical hatha yoga sessions, and you will be given the applied tools and knowledge of sustainable building, learning to build both a Solar-Powered Shower and a Composting Toilet. In the spirit of conscious living, which is foundational in Yoga & Sustainable Building, all materials will be locally sourced, yet the concepts will be easily translatable to any chosen environment. Kristof & Severin both bring their years of global experience in these fields and their heartfelt commitment to sharing with others.
