Shinrin Yoku: Forest bathing retreat i Norge

Shinrin Yoku: Forest bathing retreat i Norge

The primary goal of Forest Bathing, Forest Therapy or Shinrin-Yoku is to support the wellness and health of participants through guided immersive experiences in forests and other naturally healing environments and to help them reconnect with nature and the more-than-human world. Forest Therapy sessions are gentle walks with a guide providing instructions - referred to as invitations - for sensory opening activities along the way. These walks follow a standard sequence, as defined by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy. Each walk begins with establishing embodied contact with the present moment and place, followed by a series of connective invitations, mobilizing the power of the senses, often adapted to the location and the needs of participants. These may be followed by wander time and/or sit spot. The walks end with a tea ceremony, sharing tea made from foraged local plants, possibly reflecting on the experience. Guided Forest Therapy consists of a brief, seemingly simple journey. For all its apparent simplicity, it often surprises people with its transformative power. There are many empirically demonstrated physical, mental and spiritual benefits of this practice. For more information about Forest Bathing see www.skogsbad.no and www.waybackhome.info

Description of the retreat

The Forest Bathing Retreat is our invitation to you to re-connect with your true self, nature and other human or non-human beings through guided immersion in the beautiful nature at the Norwegian Nøsen Yoga Retreat, a high-mountain lodge, surrounded by pristine lakes, meadows, waterfalls and forests. The program of the retreat is designed to help you opening your senses, getting naturally mindful, calm, connected, refreshed and renewed. Trained by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, the guides are trained to enhance sensory perception, facilitating connection with place, body, nature and the more-than-human world. They can help you to slow down, turn off the stream of habitual thinking and establish embodied contact with the present moment. They work in partnership with Nature and also have a function of a supportive witness, enabling participants to experience whatever the natural environment has to offer to them at the moment. The retreat is a real treat for anyone looking for more connection, focus, creativity and relaxation, boosting their immune system and improving their physical, mental and spiritual health at the same time.

Cooking with seasons, taste and senses: Find creativity with vegetarian food with Benjamin L. Medin

Nøsen outside2.jpg

In this workshop we will explore the world of plant-based cooking related to what is in season and how to use these ingredients in a playful and optimal way. Our focus will be how to vary your cooking in a well-balanced way, and to understand how to use different tastes and textures in food to make a dish or a meal feel more complete. We will find ways to enrich our creativity and confidence in the kitchen. The more tools we have, the more courage we also get to make mistakes which help us to improve. We will also try to deconstruct the idea of how we look at recipes and understand how to create our own recipes from knowing why certain things taste and suit well together. We use the knowledge and inspiration from Ancient Ayurvedic, Modern Plant based as well as Traditional Gastronomy techniques to enhance our artillery in the kitchen no matter what experience we have with cooking vegetarian food.

We will cover topics of:

  • Essential tools for the kitchen

Saturday 1st December

  • 11:00 – 13:00                     Handstand Workshop

Learn the basic principles of alignment in a handstand and work on different exercises that can be implemented into your yoga practice, creating a strong and sustainable practice. All bodies are different, so we will explore different approaches and tools.

  • 13:00 – 14:00                     Lunch
  • 17:00 - 19:00                      Yin Fusion

The world we live in is constantly offering us information, actions, reactions and expecting us to do. When we really commit into the release of all efforts and allow ourselves to be, as we are, we find ourselves in a state of simple being. We will notice when we start to relax more into the postures, body gets more spacious. This can lead you into new areas to explore, whether it means you can go deeper or maybe feel new sensations that you never had. Try not to fight your way through it, but instead calm your breath, body, mind and be open to the changes in the soul.

  • 19.00 – 20:00                    Dinner
     

Sunday 2nd December

  •  07:00 – 09:00                   Vinyasa RISE

In this vinyasa class we will start with a guided meditation and pranayama, before finding strength, stability and freedom in poses that will lead you into arm balances. Letting go of old habits, and though anatomy explorations and principles of gravity, you will feel lighter and RISE. 

  • 9:00 – 10:00                      Breakfast
  • 11:00 - 13:00                      Finding Backspace Workshop

Isolating our spine from the rest of the body gives us the wonderful capacity to feel the numbness and limitations we hold. Traveling through the spaces of our spinal cord makes us realize not only that the whole body is attached to our spine through nerves and electricity impulses that travel through the heart to the brain.

As we open our hearts we are able to give to others and to the world but working on the back aspects of our heart chakra brings us to the point of acceptance and receiving. We are mystical beings in need for trust that the universe has got our backs.

Physically we will explore heart openers initiated from the support of backspace.

  • 13:00 – 14:00                   Lunch
  • 14:00 – 16:00                   Goodbye and departure

About the teachers

Igor Coelho (500 RYT)

igor-web.jpg

Ballroom and contemporary dance university background, he began his yoga practice the moment he felt some kind of connection with him self and the world around him went missing. Speechless with the deep benefits of practicing yoga, he decided to leave all behind and start a journey of creating a new self in India. He combines his passion for yoga in each and every single class with playful and encouraging cues, focused emphasis on the breath, drishti and being present.

His fluid but challenging classes focus on traditional Hatha yoga and alignment based Vinyasa flow.

Through his relaxed, non-judgemental and heartfelt classes, he hopes to inspire true lifestyle change by aligning the mind, body and soul, bringing eastern philosophy to the contemporary fast-paced western lifestyle.

Bjørn Jakobsen (900 RYT)

14233159_10154283331296293_8117164477189331201_n.jpg

Bjørn is a former gymnast and has worked in the fitness industry for many years. He is a licensed personal trainer from AFPT and has presented group classes and done workshops all over Norway and abroad. He likes to combine strength and elements of movement in his classes with a playful approach.

In his yoga journey he found a lot of resistance in being still, finding patience and peace.  This led to exploring yin, pranayama and meditation. When noticing the effect, it had on the mind – being flexible changed from doing the splits, to find new ways of looking at things. Being physically strong, changed to show vulnerability and ask for help and guidance.

Ashtanga Yoga Intensive with Ellen Johannesen - Ahimsa and Adjustments

Ashtanga Yoga Intensive with Ellen Johannesen - Ahimsa and Adjustments

In this workshop we will take a look at how to adjust ourselves and others. In order to do so we need to have a good understanding of the physical principles that underline the Ashtanga practice: we need to understand the function of various joints and muscles and we need to have an understanding of the mechanics of movement. We will break down the sequence into several themes like, Surya Namaskar, seated postures, balances, back bends etc. and explore some movement principles in a dynamic and creative way! 

Whether we adjust ourselves or others we also need to do so with kindness, care and patience - in short, we need to actively practice the yogic attitude of Ahimsa or non-harm. We will therefore explore philosophy and meditation from the perspective of Hindu and Buddhist traditions in order to cultivate a positive and wholesome attitude of mind.

The day will start with meditation Mysore practice and pranayama. After breakfast we will have a philosophy and meditation session. In the afternoon we will be doing a longer “asana clinics” in which we study the mechanics of various asanas and how to enhance them. Participants will also get the opportunity to try out adjusting each other.

This workshop is suitable for those who have practiced for a while and have a regular Ashtanga practice (at least up to half primary). It is also suitable for those who have - but this is no prerequisite -  completed a teacher training and want to learn more about adjustment - and it will certainly be helpful for you who practice by yourself without a teacher or those who just want a deeper understanding of the practice!
