Altitude camp at 1900m in the depths of the Queyras with sanitary facilities and the possibility of making fires. In anticipation: daily practices of asana, pranayama, meditation and of course daily excursions with potentially a bivouac in the mountains in meditative and contemplative approaches.
This course is an opportunity to reconnect with the five elements that make up the Universe and ourselves. The practice of conscious walking will help us develop the inner silence necessary for a growing receptivity aimed at inner and outer contemplation. These activities will lead us to cultivate a sense of the sacred. We will develop an attitude of surrendering the ego through the devotional practices of bhakti yoga and its kirtans (devotional songs) and the practices of karma yoga, selfless altruistic action; as well as the fulfillment of communal dharma, mutual aid, benevolence and cheerfulness.
Cultivate the Art of living together in nature by practicing the Art of Yoga.
Around the camp we will have access to rivers, torrents, forests, ridges, summits, lakes.
