Suitable for beginner, advanced, and intermediate practitioners
Often times, people don't realise how alive they can feel until they are singing and dancing their hearts out in a state of total surrender and elation.
Even if you struggle to sing freely, to move freely or to spend time in a groupโ€ฆ A Songdance Retreat offers a well established approach where everyone can authentically open up to their own potential and connect to the others.
Songdance Retreats are soft and gentle, while deep and powerful at the same time. The secret ingredient (ppssst, don't tell anyone) is the power of music. Yavin's live music playing doesn't leave any heart untouched.

You'll sing mantras that are created on the spot, which are completely aligned with the needs and energy of the group. You'll be moving to a whole range of music, going from deep and harmonic to rhythmic and pulsing.

All the sessions are carefully guided by Yavin & Upala, with their many retreat practices founded in experience. Yavin is an insightful and observant teacher, while Upala lovingly holds the space and inspires participants to go even further in their exploration of Authentic Singing and Dancing.
