Activities description

Yoga is not only what you do on the mat. In the classes we will look at how Ashtanga Yoga in particular can help us to become more natural and more aware of how we move in our daily life. content
Mantras are the sound of the Universe. Some say that they have always existed and that we can actually hear them when we start listening to Silence. When we start chanting Mantras, we can enter a deep state of meditation and feel who we really are.
AcroYoga is a great way to enjoy our body and experiment with boundaries. We learn to communicate with each other in a friendly and effective way. It's a great possibility for people to connect and have fun together. 
Meditative walks and hikes are esencial practices in our retreats. They are very simple and accesible for everyone. They help us to understand, through experience, our deep connection with nature.
It makes us notice in each step and in each breath, that the energy that exist inside us it is just the same as the energy that exists out there. Nature is our greatest teacher, silence and deep listening helps us enrich the experience She offers.

One day will be dedicated to meditative hiking, starting just after breakfast and coming back for a gentle yoga session. It is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the wonders of the the Ordesa National Park or surrounding areas.   

 

 

Facilitators

Boris Georgiev and Renée Sunbird are leading the Yogacenter Ganesha in Vienna since the year 2000. Boris has practiced Yoga since he was a child, and has been teaching for more than 20 years. Renée has studied Indology and Philosophy at the University of Vienna, and found the practice of Yoga essential to understanding the philosophy of India. Together they share the passion of singing Mantras and with their children, they make Yoga and Kirtan a family experience.

Renée Sunbird
Yogini, Singer, Songwriter and Mother

Renée Sunbird was first introduced to Yoga by her father.
Some years later she studied Indology (Sanskrit) and Philosophy at the University of Vienna and started to practice Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
She went to India several times to deepen her Yoga practice and fell in love with Indian music, Mantra and Bhajan singing.

Renée is the mother of two girls. She plays and fools around with them on the playground, in a class or in the tram. She dreams about finding some time to read a book, sitting in silent meditation or just finding a moment to be quiet. Her new found passion Kung Fu makes her feel strong and weak at the same time. She loves to drink Matcha out of beautiful handmade mugs, compose music late at night and dive deep into the philosophy of Yoga and life.

Here you can listen to some music that Renee composed here:

- Dive into the blue
- Déjà là
So Ham
- Lokah Samastah


When playing live, Renée accompanies herself on Ukulele or Sansula and Boris plays on the Harmonium.

Mantras are a tool for the mind. They can guide us to a place deep within us where we can experience a deep sense of peace and Silence. When we start chanting Mantras, we can enter a deep state of meditation and feel who we really are.

Boris Georgiev

In the yoga tradition, direct energetic transmission is regarded as the superior teaching method. Studying with Boris, one has the chance to understand why and how. As a lifelong practitioner and student of yoga, Boris embodies and vibrates the teachings that he has been learning to love since he was a boy.

Born in 1972 in Bulgaria, Boris began yoga as a child, learning more about the spirit and heart of yoga during his teenage years practising with his Bulgarian teacher Venzislav Eftimoff. Later, in Vienna, he continued to expand his understanding of yoga as a multi-faceted path to support happiness and balance in the modern world working with the holistic Sivananda yoga method. It was in the Sivananda ashram in South India that Boris met Lino Miele who inspired him to work with the Aṣṭāṅga Vinyasa Yoga method. From 1995, this modality became more and more the principal frame for Boris’ asana practice as he continued studying with Michel Besnard and Andrea Morava.
In 2000, after Michael and Andrea went to Australia, Boris founded the  Yoga Center Ganesha, where he teaches mainly aṣṭāṅga yoga and AcroYoga®. Besides his many years of personal practice, Boris’ teaching is also informed by his four year course study for psychological self-awareness (Primal Therapie - Munk - primaertherapie.de), Spiraldynamic® anatomy, and AcroYoga®

Everyday from the end of the evening Satsang up until before lunch the following morning, we cultivate joyful silence in the house. This deep silence is very healing for calming the mind and being in peace with ourselves, allowing us to deeply listen to ourselves. We will have a restful sleep and the next day we will enjoy the silence with mental clarity during our asana practice, meditation and other activities. Breakfast will be taken mindfully and in silence. By participating in this period of joyful silence we will be supporting each other in our practice.

Throughout the afternoon we will enjoy conscious speaking and deep listening, which will allow us to get to know each other in a more authentic way.
