KUKERANNA 2014

KUKERANNA YOGA RETREAT
ESTONIA

1 - 5 August, 2014


 
Hi yogis and yoginis! 

Summer in Estonia is short, but the summer days are long, evening are full of light and special energy. August night sky is usually bottomless and filled with million stars. When the weather is favorable (that is one thing that is definitely a gamble up here), the Nordic summer is a real treat!! 
This would be the third year for Kukeranna Retreat tradition. Kukeranna is where I have spent all my childhood summers, so for me that place holds special memories and energy. It's been lovely to have my family involved in the preparation and running of the retreat, and to have my friends and students come and share the yoga, good food and them long summer days with us. 

Kukeranna rules!! 
LOVE,

KUKERANNA IS MY MAGIC LAND
Kukeranna (translates to Rooster Beach..go figure) has a remote feel to it. It's 120 km from Tallinn, by the western coast of Estonia. I've spent all my childhood summers there with my sister, my cousins and my family. It's been a sanctuary for us and our friends and now we are happy to share this space with you. 

YOGA FOR BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT
If you've been practicing yoga, you know what I am talking about. If not, then be brave to try! Mind you, there are no pre requisites to practicing yoga: you don't have to be flexible, you don't have to be fit, you don't have to believe in anything, you don't have to have a religious or spiritual background. 
My yoga class is a smooth flow between different poses, the pace of the class can vary from slow and mellow to quite stimulating and dynamic, depending on the students. 

MEDITATION IS MAKING PEACE WITH WHAT IS
Every conscious moment is a meditation. Meditation is nothing holy or super spiritual. It is about training our concentration, becoming more self-aware of the "forces" pushing and pulling out of the NOW, it is being with what IS, practicing to live more in the present moment, creating harmony and balance   in our lives. 

SANGHA IS THE JOY OF SHARING WITH LIKEMINDED PEOPLE
Sangha is a Pali and Sanskrit word that translates to community. Creating and being part of an international sangha is one of my dreams. A buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh has said something very inspiring: "it is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community - a community practicing understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the earth"...
ACCOMMODATION * FOOD * LIVING
ACCOMMODATION
I must warn you that the living conditions are basic and down to earth. There are two private rooms in a separate building (1 with double bed, 1 with 1 double and 1 single bed), plus an attic with beds (for 6 people) and plenty of camping space. There's an outhouse for a toilet, a well for water (there is a shower with hot water!) and a pond for swimming. 
There will be a weather and mosquito proof tent for our yoga sessions. 

FOOD
Food will be simple, vegetarian, healthy and yummy. 

LIVING
I wish for you to have plenty of time and space to just be and relax - read, take walks, rest and play ... to follow your own pace. The sea is 1 km away, there will be sauna in the evenings and a pond behind the sauna to cool you down (should it get that hot...which I sure hope it does).
