Circle of Peace

Yoga of Action – Yoga of Devotion – Yoga in Motion 🙂

27.12.2017 – 1.1.2018

As nature moves from the depths of winter towards the light, let us gather on New Years to celebrate the light within ourselves and gather in a circle of peace to joyfully celebrate community through divine play! This retreat will take place at Maitri Yoga Chiemsee, a beautiful Yoga space created by Sophia and Winni Ruhs at the Chiemsee in Southern Germany. We will spread our wings with AcroYoga, enjoy Prana Flow inspired Yoga, stir the soul with Bhakti-filled (the spirit of devotion) Mantra Singing, share the love with Thai massage and center ourselves with meditation. Enjoy 5 days of deep learning, love and fun where you are empowered to live your individuality, reach for your highest potential, meet others without fear, and play! Let us create a real bhakti winter heaven! As we connect with others and within we will co-create a world of positivity that is a fertile ground for planting seeds of peace and harmony for the New Year. We invite both experienced yogis and absolute beginners to join us. Classes will be taught in English (Thai massage with Zoltan) and German (AcroYoga, Yoga and more with Sophia & Winni). Translation upon request. In the spirit of devotion, we will be donating 10% of the proceeds of this event to Amma’s ( charitable organizations.
Sophia and Winfried Ruhs are passionate yogis and bodyworkers, who are able to transmit their joy and knowledge to students in a deep yet playful way. They both teach Yoga and Thai massage and are certified Level 2 AcroYoga® teachers. They live with their daughter Sundari at the Chiemsee in Germany.
For Zoltan Gyoryovics (Sunshine Network Teacher) Thai massage is a spiritual practice that he enjoys sharing from the heart. Zoltan’s warmth and wealth of knowledge enable him to transmit this ancient healing art in an easily accessible way.
