This retreat is for those who want to try, but also go deeper into pranayama and meditation, as well as put your health in focus and learn more about the research for a healthy and long life. We will alternate yoga, pranayama (yogic breathing exercises), meditation, lecture on research on food and meditation, walks, sauna and sea bathing and Abhyangha, Ayurvedic hot oil massage. The food is sparse but wonderfully good, prepared by Cecilia Olsson and we follow Professor Valter Longo's fasting.
We have the yoga classes at the most beautiful yoga hall in Sweden, Mudita in Österlen. Mudita is located in the eco-village in Baskemölla overlooking the sea.
We are a small group (max 14 students) and both beginners and more experienced students are welcome to the retreat. Viveka Blom Nygren teaches and lectures. We do yoga in a gentle way and everyone can participate. We practice medical yoga, pranayama (yogic breathing exercises) and meditation. During the retreat we explore a period of silence. We also do both walking meditation and beautiful walks in the area. The food is vegan with Österlen's wonderful ingredients and prepared by Cecilia Olsson from Lila Lotus. It is a fast but we will eat breakfast, lunch and dinner in smaller portions. It's a taste of what a 5-day fast can be like. Before we start the retreat, you will receive tips on how to best prepare yourself.
We leave room in the schedule so that you also have time for rest. We stay at the hostel in Baskemölla, Bo på Baske. You book and pay the hostel yourself, you announce that you belong to the Yoga group.
During these days, you will be given practical tools to take better care of yourself. Viveka will give you a personalized breathing and meditation program that you can continue at home. You will also learn more about how to fast and continue to eat healthier.
You can call or write to Viveka if you have any questions.
SVT's Vetenskapens värld explored the concept of "Longevity" or living a long and healthy life. A common theme that emerged among all the researchers who participated in the program was the use of fasting as a method for health and well-being.
The program culminated with an interview with Valter Longo, Director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California and a leading researcher in the field. Mr. Longo is known for developing the fast that we will implement during our retreat. You can watch the program and interview with Valter Longo here. The segment starts at 46:40 in the program.
