ABOUT US...

Welcome /  Bienvenue !  ShinGaia   merges the Japanese word for  heart/mind/core  with the ancient concept of  earth as a living system .  Version française    ShinGaia  combine le mot japonais signifiant  cœur / esprit / noyau  avec la notion ancienne de la Terre en tant que  système  vivante .  Nous explorons sous les surfaces des apparences pour harmoniser et unifier le corps, l’esprit, le cœur et l’âme.

Nous faisons appel à tous les outils qui nous sont disponibles — dont la sagesse du corps, l’intelligence, notre aptitude à aimer — pour faciliter notre parcours à travers notre environnement, y compris dans le paradoxe ou la contradiction. Nous donnons le meilleur de

Yoga Retreat in Budapest, June 3-6 <-- deferred

Image
This retreat will be rescheduled for a future date. Thank you for your understanding.  How do we find nourishment in our urban environments? Come with us to Budapest  where we will  explore ways we can nourish body, mind, heart and soul  as we discover this  vibrant and ancient city in the heart of Europe.  We will start the day with tonic morning yoga classes in the lively quarter of Pest near Margaret Bridge. We'll then head out to explore this beautiful and dynamic city,  returning the studio to finish our busy day with a  restorative or candle-light 'chill-out' yoga practice. We will plunge into the soothing water of the ancient Turkish baths, discover the spacious Buda Castle area through a unique meditative walking experience, and of course, enjoy the various culinary delights the town offers (including fine pastry). Moving around and through our environment  will be an integrated part of our discovery. In addition to walking meditation, we plan to practice outdoors o

Movement artist and systems thinker Ann Moradian  and atmospheric scientist and avid stargazer Scott Denning join forces once again, creating  unique retreat experiences that follow the dance of energy through time and space, from the birth of the stars and the planets to the emergence of life and humankind.  We have two retreats scheduled this year:  -- May 26-29, 2022 with Ann in Central France  -- July 22-26, 2022 with Ann and Scott in the Snowy Mountain Range in Wyoming USA. . We will walk and hike through our landscapes, let our minds soar into the dark night skies, and dive into the experience of our animate bodies through structured and mindful movement explorations, daily yoga, and breathing practices to bring awareness to the body's innate feedback system, and it's inherent logic. Participants will experience a broader view of the concept of nature, with a deeply personal sense of dwelling both in one's embodied being, in nature, and in the larger cosmos.  The idea
