Santosa Living Yoga and Bhakti Camp | SOMERSET
23 - 30 August 2016 |
Santosa is a clear pure space, alcohol and drug-free, a family-friendly home for yogis of all ages. The youngest person to have attended was 6 weeks old (he brought his mum with him) and as for the oldest yogis, we were too polite to enquire just how far over 70 they were that year. And there’s everyone else in between, single people, groups of keen young yogis, family groups, couples and teachers with all their students camping close. Above all there are no cliques, no cults, no exclusivity, just friendly yogis from all traditions. There are complementary therapists and healers working for donation.
We provide your delicious sattvic (wholesome vegetarian) meals, as many yoga classes as you like, your pitch, parking and water, showers hot tubs and campfires. You bring yourselves, your friends and family, your students, your yoga equipment, musical instruments and wellies. It’s a clean, green site, so please be prepared to take your rubbish and recycling away with you.
An irresistible and inspiring full programme of workshops, classes and healing therapies with teachers from the team who have been running the Santosa Yoga festival and Gathering since 2005.
There is respect for every form of yoga, and a huge variety of different forms on offer: from devotional bhakti chant and mantra in the dawn light, to Mysore style ashtanga vinyasa before breakfast, Full Moon Womb Yoga and ayurvedic yoga vinyasa for healing mid-morning, and chuckling Laughter Yoga and deep Yoga Nidra after lunch. Evenings there are fires, singing, community Kirtans, dance and meditations too. There are also loads of kids classes, baby and toddler yoga, family sessions, and healing therapies on offer.
We keep a fire burning throughout the camp as a heart focus for camp meetings and for sharings, ritual and music. We have no electricity, but we have a lot of light!
To be part of this camp is in itself to make a profound spiritual offering: the whole event is an act of prayer, a sacred offering full of love from our hearts.
We look forward to sharing this year's camp with you.
