September 22-29, 2018 – Selina Gullery and Jenny Baer-Pásztory
Yoga and creative writing retreat.
Added alchemy is sure to happen on this special soil, which has always been a crucible of Mediterranean culture, a fascinating tapestry in which Greek temples, Norman churches and Baroque palazzos emerge from its rich fabric. Our local hosts will give us an insider’s view of culture and cuisine, and the inner and outer landscapes of the Sicilian people.
Our days commence with an energising yoga practice with Selina followed by breakfast, a cultural excursion to one of the many beautiful spots nearby (see brochure for details). After lunch there will be plenty of time to relax and restore, take your diary to write, read… Jenny will be giving you creative sparks and assisting you in immersing yourself in the art of creative writing. The afternoons will conclude with a restorative and integrative yoga class followed by dinner at our Villa. On some evenings, there will be yoga nidra classes after dinner.
Our retreat centre is a magical restored farmhouse boasting luxurious accommodation with special attention to detail and authenticity.
Selina Gullery (BA) is a qualified linguist, yoga teacher, intuitive cook and student of life.
She walks the path of yoga to connect with her body and through it with the rhythms of nature and the divine that resides in all things. Yoga for her is a holistic approach to leading a conscious and responsible life, in tune with ourselves, with each other, our communities, and the world around us.
Her yoga practice is informed with her passion for psychology, somatic movement, music, poetry and traditional Chinese practices of movement and their underlying healing properties. She imparts her knowledge with insight and passion, drawing on decades of study and practice. She is fortunate to have learnt with inspiring teachers and at schools with both a traditional, Indian lineage and those that have adopted a western and more contemporary approach to Yoga.
In her Teacher Trainings, in classes and on retreat, she encourages the growth of the spiritual and individual self in her students, through cultivating self-love, embracing imperfections and residing in the gentle strength of the higher Self.
Selina travels internationally hosting yoga retreats, teaching workshops and teacher trainings from her home base in Sofia, Bulgaria.
After twenty years of working on marine projects worldwide Jenny decided to dive into the forests around her home in Austria.
Completing her training as a nature mentor and coach in 2016, she started to develop forest projects and camps for both adults and children. Realising how our soul yearns for the “wilderness”, she leads her groups off the beaten track to inhale those forest smells, follow animal tracks and recognize bird song.
Her passion for writing has accompanied her all her life. Asked a few years ago whether she could give some guidance to those who want to, but don’t know how to, she now gives regular creative writing workshops which are received enthusiastically.
In everything Jenny does, her intent is to tickle that wild part in all of us. She takes delight in re-awakening that curiosity and wonder and sharpening the senses.
Her workshops set off sparks. Drawing from her treasure trove of experience she will seduce you to put pen to paper. Guaranteed.
