Why New Year’s Resolutions don’t work!
How can we understand why our good intentions and resolutions commonly fail, leading to feelings of guilt, shame and hopelessness? Most of us have heard of the term neuroplasticity, the idea that the brain has the ability to remodel itself according to how we use it. The number of neurons in our brain, and the connections that each has, is almost unimaginable. However, the pathways that we use habitually become like major highways and are pretty much automatic. To change these habitual ways, we have to create new highways, new grooves.
So, how do we do that so these new highways run deep? How can we create lasting positive change?
In this retreat Sangita will guide you as you consciously create your vision for 2022 and beyond! Renew your spirit in inspiring company at this auspicious time.

About guest teacher Tatiana and the practice of conscious dance:
Conscious Dance with Tatiana is a form of a dialogue with the world within and around the dancer. It is a transformative dance practice that allows to access and express emotions and feelings, embody creativity through movement. It is not a show or a performance but a deeply personal meditative practice. Your inner dance for Yourself, that helps you to feel more aligned and present with your everyday dance.
Through free form movement, sound and gentle guidance we will explore the appreciation of the body in motion and in stillness. We will learn to establish connections between body, breath, mind, awareness and space. We will dance through joys and sorrows into aliveness and the creative field of inspiration. We release and receive.
These sessions are all-inclusive, no age, gender, experience or fitness level requirements.

She uses Dance as a form of meditation and mindfulness practice that helps students to reconnect with their emotions and inner world.
