AND WHAT IS SANTOSA?
It is the happy acceptance of what is, just as it arises.
It is the experience of contentment.
And it is a sweetness of indescribable beauty.
It is the name of the camp which has been running now for 11 years, and the camp herself is an opportunity to EXPERIENCE SANTOSA:
'By the experience of Santosa, unparalleled happiness arises' (Yoga Sutra, 2:42).
HARI OM dear yoginis and yogis,
Santosa offers over FIFTY wonderful yoga and meditation and dance teachers, musicians, singers and workshop facilitators, as well as the opportunity to experience Yoga Nidra 5 times a day and to supplement this with discounted access to the uniquely comparative and exploratory online Total Yoga Nidra Foundation course, and also to be healed and ministered to by a host of skilled therapists.
We are delighted to welcome back some of our very favourite teachers who have been coming to Santosa yoga camp for years, and some very marvellous new friends, all sharing their skills, love and joy with us: we're looking forward to Kashmir yoga with Veronika and Laughter yoga with Amanda, to Heartsong every morning with Eliza and with Siri Sadhana, to Womb Yoga and Yoga Nidra from a cracking team from the Yoga Nidra Network, to chanting the names of the goddess with Antarma and the Amma satsang, to daily Babaji aarati with Tabla Tom and Thrisha, and evening bhakti from Babaji temple singers, Tim Chalice and Sivaani Mata, to Wild Yoga contemplative movement with Theo Wildcroft, to DANCEmandala with Shaku and Shakti Dance with Anjali, and to the mighty Avalon Roots!
And these are just a few of our favourite Santosa peeps! For a full listing of all our very wonderful teachers, bhaktas, meditation teachers and bhakti musicians, please visit our profiles page.
Please do bear in mind we are always open to the possibility of inspirational changes and bright ideas, so the schedule is never final till we get onto the field herself! We joyfully operate from a place of potent and creative uncertainty, in the loving arms of the deep feminine… But this is a pretty clear guide to what to expect. ENJOY
As well as the marvellous schedule we also have a specially constructed NEW SAUNA (which is quite a treat to use), as well as a host of fabulous new extras in the kids' department (including origami and flying fun… and that's on top of the programme of kids' crafts activites).
And all this is served up with three delicious veggie meals a day - plus complimentary chai at the morning meeting, and free hot chocolate at story time for the litle ones.
At Santosa you are welcomed, fed and get to share your mealtimes with a fabulous family of yogis of all ages.
Once you are on site, every workshop, class, activity and meal is ALL INCLUDED in the price. What a wonderful thought!
THANK YOU and HARI OM TAT SAT XXX
With great respect and love from UMA
