Urkraft der Alpen – Pure Inspiration für ein Yoga Retreat in Österreich

Primal Power of the Alps - Pure Inspiration for a Yoga Retreat in Austria

Primordial power of the AlpsPure inspiration for a yoga retreat in Austria

Everyone feels it - the elemental force of the Alps. This magical attraction when snow-covered mountains stretch into the sky in front of you or the energy of the climbing winds blows towards you at the summit cross. Automatically this power awakens a spiritual side in you. You return to yourself. Your deepest inner self is stirred. For me, the Alps are pure inspiration for a Yoga Retreat in Austria. In these mountains is based the magical attraction that I always follow to go hiking, breathe fresh mountain air and find relaxation.

In this article you can expect:

  1.  My deep connection to the mountains in Austria
  2.  What does liminality mean?
  3.  When do I have liminoid experience?
  4.  What does liminality have to do with a yoga retreat in Austria? 
  5.  What influence do the Alps have on our retreat program?
  6. Our Yoga Retreat offers in Austria.

"I am Bene from Inti Yoga and write this post out of deepest connection and admiration for the beauty and form of our Mother Earth."

My connection to the mountains

 

Grown up in the foothills of the Alps in Constance on Lake Constance the Austrian mountains have always been present on the horizon for me. Always during Föhn, breathtaking mountain ranges rise above the deep blue, glittering lake. At these moments, I love to climb a nearby hill and marvel at the fiery red play of light from the Alpine peaks as the sun sets. I feel an instant sense of calm settle in. I feel part of a greater whole. I am so open to the beauty of the earth and realize how this energy can penetrate unfiltered to my soul.

These moments of Liminality knows every:r. The threshold state in which you momentarily forget all your worries and fears and are completely present in the moment. It feels for a moment as if you are in another reality. You want to hold on to time forever.

I especially often experience this state in the mountains. Here it seems to be very easy for me to isolate myself from my thoughts and worries and to really see the omnipresent beauty of green valleys, glittering mountain lakes and rushing streams.

 "I am sure you know this feeling of Liminality. Perhaps you might pause here for a moment, close your eyes and take three breaths to reunite with such a moment from your life and the feeling it brings."

Deep experience: Yoga Retreat

 

I also know the feeling of liminality from vacations with friends, from family outings, or from summer camp as a teenager. Whenever a small group of people comes together for a short period of time to break away from the everyday social order in community.

I experience this feeling particularly intensely on Yoga Retreats. Here people meet to experience personal growth in community. It is this combination of intensive exercises from the personality development paired with Yoga, Breathwork, Meditation or Ecstatic Dance, that makes such a retreat experience so special for me. After yoga retreats, it is admittedly always particularly difficult for me to detach myself from the group again and let go of this harmony and intensity of life. To exchange it for an everyday life that offers less variety.

Elements

 

Appreciating nature supports us in feeling more appreciation for ourselves as well.

Let the elements teach you to give yourself more self-love & acceptance.

 

Awareness

 

Do you know the feeling when your head clears at some point while hiking? And then everything seems softer and you feel lighter?

This awareness of your true nature is strengthened.

 

A gift

 

RETREAT means retreat and means a planned spiritual rest and retreat from familiar surroundings.

Give yourself this opportunity to feel more at home IN yourself and feel that deep connection to yourself and nature.

A yoga retreat in the mountains connects!

 

A yoga retreat in the Austrian mountains offers everything you need to work with your deepest inner self, feel primal power, find relaxation and live connection. At Inti Yoga we always try to find very special places of power for our Alpine Retreats to find places where you can especially feel this magic. Places where the play of the elements is very present. Inevitably, this grounding energy also merges with our program consisting of yoga, meditation, breathwork and hiking.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

In those last months, acctually this entire year 2022, my life has been so ALIVE 🎢🙃❤️🔥🧘♀️

I sometimes ask myself how much inner & outer change all at the same time is healthy. For me.

What made it possible to navigate through the layers of human experience with grace, serenity and faith is: MY PRACTISE.

To me that means:

> Finding my breath
> Moving my Body
> Calming my mind
> Finding my breath again
> Facing my fears
> Talking to my inner controller
> Finding silence
> Me time
> Raw honestly towards my reactions
> Finding my breath again
> Going onto my mat, especially when I really don't feel like it. And Just sit with ME. With ALL OF ME and with ALL OF THIS LIFE. And find my breath.

Do your practise and all is coming.

It's true 🙏🏻

Without Yoga, it's Philosophy of self and Personal expansion, i never (never!) would have this loving & compassionate marriage - still after 11 years, moved to a different country, bought a House, emotionally & mentally survived a miscarriage, taught 2 Teacher Trainings, run my own Retreats & classes & being of service, built my own Soul-Business and be able to live from it, believed in myself at that level, Loved myself so so much, met all these amazing humans in my Life, by far my Heart wouldn't be as Open as it is, and I would probably still think, that I am my thoughts, or my Feelings, or my Body.

So thank you thank you thank you, yogic path, all it's teachings & practises, ancient rishis & gurus, all to my teachers 🙏🏻

It makes me cry knowing what Yoga does for me.
Every. Single. Day.

THANK YOU.

Your inner, energetic compass ~ today I'm a live guest of @lauramalinaseiler at Higher Self Home - her spiritual members area.

This month the focus topic is CHAKRA POWER ✨

In this workshop you will have the opportunity to feel your individual power centers through the so-called bija sounds (seed sounds of the respective chakras).

At the same time, I dive with you and the homies into the themes of each center from a personal development perspective and we explore what is lying dormant here in your subconscious.

It will be an exciting mix of impulse talk and knowing, practicing and feeling ~ and I am so looking forward to the energy of the beautiful souls of this special evening 🙏🏻💖

My heart is dancing. Looking forward to seeing you ❤️🔥

Let nature be your Teacher

🌳 What can you learn from a tree?
🌿 What do you remember, when looking at a leave?
🥾 What Happens with your thoughts whilst walking over rocks, roots and soil?

Allow yourself to immerse yourself into nautre more.

It's a symbiosis with your Essence ✨

Are visits to your home region or family reunions sometimes super exhausting and emotionally dissolving for you?
So-called #riggers are NOT the situations that upset you.

Triggers are events that catapult you back emotionally to a past moment in your life. Moments that were a traumatic experience for you.

Since these moments mostly originated with the caregivers/parents and in school & childhood, we find especially many such situations with these people and in these places.

⚠️ Allow these situations to become your LEARNING FIELDS.

Observe yourself.

Feel. Allow yourself to feel everything. They will seem very familiar, but what makes the difference is to really allow them.

And then make clear decisions:

🪷 How would I like to be?
🪷 How do I want to feel inside?
🪷 What can I do to be and stay in my center in the best possible way?

🌹How do I talk to myself when'it didn't work out?
🌹When's escalated? When I have fallen fully into my inner child and its hurts or traumas?

AND THEN:

🤍✨ KNOW WHO YOU ARE ✨🤍 NOW. TODAY.

Love Jessy

3 Things that helped me deal with a harrowing experience. May this also support you in challenging situations:

**Disclaimer**

Whether your spirituality & personality development is really integrated, you will only notice when something blatant happens outside, e.g. a pandemic, e.g. an illness, e.g. a separation, e.g. a severe loss.

So we can use these events for us 🙏🏻 therefore

1. 🫶 OCCURATE

∆ Do not try to be against the event. Accept it. SEE IT. Tell it, "Okay I perceive you, you are here."

2: 🥹 GIVE SPACE

∆ Give yourself TIME for your healing. Hit the stop button, cancel everything. Care for yourself as if you were your best friend. Rest, massage, healers, therapy, doctor, baths, sleep, you Name it. You come First.

3: ✨ DIVINITY

∆ Everything is DIVINE TIMING. Connect with something that is beyond your horizon. TRUST that this experience has a higher & good purpose that is FOR YOU.

I believe in this deeply.

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

I can now say that I am deeply grateful for what it was with me recently. Even though it was most unpleasant & painful at first, I now recognize so much beauty in it 💖

What other point has helped you navigate through difficult situations in your life?

Feel free to share it with me & everyone else 🙏🏻

So much love goes out to you ~ my heart is so full today ❤️🔥😍🙃

Your Jessy
...

When's just grabs you again and you write a post with joy & love and not, because of the all-going-in-the-same-rhithm.

If you use social media because you're loving it. You celebrate your community. And: because you know it's your duty to show off and to share your unique gifts with the world ❤️🔥.

Was bedeutet Selbstliebe?

What does self-love mean?

What does self-love mean?

how can you develop it? And what does self-love have to do with yoga?

Many wish for more self-love - but what is that actually? And how can you take more time for yourself despite a full calendar? Here I share with you my everyday tips for yoga exercises, meditations and affirmations on the topic of self-love. It is my absolute heart topic and flows into all projects of Inti Yoga. I even have my own Self Love Yoga Retreat Program developed. 

In this article you can expect:

  1.  Self love can be practiced
  2.  What does self-love mean?
  3.  Why do we find it so difficult?
  4.  How to start integrating self-love into your everyday life
  5.  Self-love tips for your everyday life
  6.  3 myths about self love
  7.  More affirmations for self love

Self love can be practiced

The most beautiful thing about self-love is that it can be a lifelong playground where we are allowed to follow our curiosity and get more and more in touch with ourselves.  

So self-love can be learned: you can practice self-love and over time you will notice that you become more and more attentive to your thoughts and actions. And that you will become more and more imaginative in expanding your self-love practice - this is a beautiful journey.  

What does self-love mean?

 

For me, there are three levels of self-love, which we will look at in more detail here:

Self-acceptance

I have the ability to recognize and accept myself - here and now - as I am. With all feelings, with my body as it is right now, with all my thoughts.

Through self-acceptance we create a basis of respect and peace within ourselves. Through this basis we find with time more satisfaction with our body, in our relationships and also a certain sovereignty can arise. Because the more you accept yourself, including all your inaccessibilities, the easier it is for you to accept others as they are.

 

Affirmation:

I recognize myself and like myself the way I am.

I am good enough.

Self-care

I can decide - in every moment - whether I act in the sense of my heart or against myself.

Self-care doesn't necessarily mean that we spend hours every day oiling ourselves and drinking the most expensive teas. Rather, from my perspective, self-care concerns in what sense we act: Am I doing this for myself or for others? Am I going somewhere because I want to or because it is (supposedly) required of me?

Self-care also means serving our own needs first and then lovingly caring for others. It's the principle of the oxygen mask in an airplane: put on your own first so that you can then help others. You'll learn why this has nothing to do with selfishness below in the 3 myths about self-love.

 

Affirmation:

I like to take care of myself to come into my full power.

Self-esteem

I trust myself and value myself.

If you criticize yourself all the time, you lose confidence in yourself. If you know you're okay, you don't have to prove or distinguish yourself to others. Self-esteem is the measure of how much we value and respect ourselves. The amount of value you ascribe to yourself. You can best measure the stability of your self-esteem when someone else criticizes you or when you don't succeed as planned. How do you handle it? Practice communicating lovingly and respectfully with yourself.

 

Affirmation:

I know my worth and respect myself.

Why is it so hard for us to love ourselves?

 

Our brains have been trained to look for danger since the history of mankind. That is why it is still the case today that we often notice the negative first. It was a great danger for man to be excluded from the community. So man has begun to pay close attention to his faults and to what the community does not like.

Now today, we still want to be loved and liked by everyone. Even by the people who go beyond our "community". This need is deeply ingrained in our subconscious.

But we may begin to learn that our survival is no longer dependent on whether all people always love us. We can allow ourselves not to be encouraged and confirmed sometimes. That it is okay to have a different opinion or, for example, to adopt a different lifestyle.

So, in the present age, we may begin to unfold our true selves, feel our emotions, and fully accept ourselves with all our needs and desires.

What does yoga say about self-love? How you can learn true self-love with the Yoga Sutra and the 5 Kleshas, you will learn here: With yoga to more self-love

Small personal anecdote:

I moved into my camper at the beginning of May 2021 and have dissolved everything else to work and live location-independent and close to nature. This way of life meets with incomprehension and resentment every now and then. Since I am not dependent on being loved and encouraged by everyone, I can continue to follow my path. In the certainty that my value is not diminished by the rejection of others.

How to start integrating self-love into your everyday life

 

Everything begins within you...

...and in your calendar.

Self-love begins with setting aside time for yourself to reflect and do things that nourish you soulfully.

 

We rarely postpone doctor's appointments, a walk with the dog, a long-agreed meeting, brushing our teeth or going shopping. Things we do because they have to be done - even if we don't feel like it at the moment, are too tired, too listless, too exhausted. We do them anyway.

How about having a date with yourself on the calendar that you learn to look at in the same way as those everyday to-dos that we attach so much meaning and importance to?

 

How about nothing could shake this appointment with you?

I recommend you to start small: What is NOW, right in this moment, the smallest possible step you could take to arrive more at yourself? Maybe close your eyes for a moment and breathe in and out calmly three times? Maybe put the cell phone away. Maybe brew yourself a fresh cup of tea. This is where self-love begins, with the little breaks and pauses - to briefly look at "how am I doing right now?".  

If you want to go a little further and allow yourself some time off to recharge your batteries and get back to yourself, I recommend you do the following:

Self-love tips for your everyday life

 

Tip 1:

Put fixed appointments in your calendar. This can be 1 hour a month, a Saturday or 10 minutes every morning - make it realistic and adapted to your routines.

Tip 2:

Let your family/roommates know that this time is sacred to you. And ask them to support you in making this time possible.

Tip 3:

Look forward to this date. Buy beautiful flowers or light a candle. Make a concrete plan: e.g. a longer walk in the park. Yoga class, a Meditation exercise, Chant mantras, or dancing for half an hour (I am currently practicing this and it helps me a lot to connect with my body).

3 myths about self love

Maybe negative associations with self-love are holding you back from taking better care of yourself? For example, these myths (which are not true, of course): 

1. "Self-love is selfish".

It is not. 🙂 It would be selfish to rush through life every day and tend to be exhausted, stressed or annoyed. Because you transfer this energy, without wanting to, to your fellow men, be it your family, colleagues or the cashier in the supermarket. 

However, if you allow yourself restorative phases, such as practicing yoga, quietly making a cup of tea or coffee and taking a mini-break, attending a workshop, taking a walk, or quietly reading a book, you can face those around you with more love, centeredness, and contentment.

We are also more focused and therefore more attentive when we relax as well: We can listen more closely and respond to the needs of our loved ones.

2. "Self-love is not productive".

We often believe that every action must have a goal. In my yoga classes I often say "practiced without achievement, without goal".

I maintain that there is value in learning that everything should always be productive and that it is a gift to do something for the sake of the process. 

3. "I need a lot of time for self-love".

You are very welcome to take a lot of time for your self-love.

But if you're short on time right now, use the tips above to find your little downtime amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

More affirmations for self love

Last but not least, I would like to share with you my favorite affirmations that you can use as an intention for your Yoga practice or hang it on your mirror:

ॐ  I allow myself not to have to achieve anything. (Because you are allowed to simply be).

ॐ  I am allowed to relax.

ॐ  I don't have to do anything. I don't have to go anywhere. Life comes to me.

ॐ  With breathing in yoga: Inhale: "I am." Exhale: "Wonderful."

ॐ  I accept myself. I accept my most beautiful qualities and also those that are more difficult for me to accept. I accept my body and its sensitivities. I accept where I am today in my life. I also accept my past in order to learn to love myself unconditionally.

I wish you from my heart that you find this beautiful connection to yourself, expand and learn to love. I wish all the time a deep friendship with yourself.  

From my heart to yours, 

Jessy
