Unique yoga camp organised exclusively for artists and art appreciators
4 – 10 August 2023
The House of Yoga Light, Czech Republic
Artist as missionary
Yoga Camp for Artist is a regenerative program intended for those for whom art is a direction and life mission. Artists from different countries will be connected by the creative energy of yoga. The thousand-year tradition of yoga helps artists to be inspired, to apply new knowledge and integrate into their professional life and work.
“The House of Yoga Light”, a place of primordial peace (prashanti) and joy, is located in the beautiful natural surroundings of the protected area Vysocina – Czech Republic, where artists from all over the world will deepen their creative experiences by connecting with their inner light.
Participants will be accommodated in 2/1, 3/1, and 4/1 modest rooms, an ambience of yoga devotees, with a shared bathroom. Accommodation is based on half board (2 vegetarian meals per day).
The path to wholeness
Art appreciators will become familiar with foundations of yoga and the techniques needed to understand and develop their own physical, psychological, energetic, creative and spiritual potentials.
The seven-days full-day program is conducted by experts from the Yoga Federation of Europe. The expert team consists of doctors of science, yoga teachers with many decades of experience who nurture an academic approach to yoga.
At the yoga camp, artists will get to know their potentials even more deeply, with the essence of the creative process and the creative power to act.
By respecting the principle of voluntariness – by respecting free will, the participant chooses the contents in which he/she will participate and how much.
What artists can learn and gain at yoga retreat:
– the ability to permeate a creative work with consciousness, creating preconditions for the observer/listener and the observed/heard to meet, to meet the creator and the created… Yoga provides the opportunity to gain deep experiences, but also the ability to direct them into further creative processes…
– willingness to manage the ways in which the personality is reflected in the work. “When we are aligned with the creative forces of the universe, through us it flows… then we are the extended hand of the creator. We are a grateful accomplice to the creative outpouring.” In order to achieve that, we need preparation in which yoga has something to teach us. Knowledge from the yoga field helps us to dissolve the ego obstacles that disturb the “emergence of the creative light”…
– the ability to manage the dimensions of the aesthetic experience: the motivational dimension – which enchants (fascinates), the cognitive dimension – which includes the symbolic, most often inexpressible meaning, and the affective dimension – which includes enjoyment – the experience of a unique exceptionalities. Yoga also teaches us to understand that our existence is also a work of art…
– the ability to see everyday life as an artistic scene, and objects of daily use and nature as a creative work, but only when they transcend their pragmatic function…
– willingness to strengthen their psycho-motor skills; increase resilience to stress; to prevent injuries and illnesses encouraged with an active and responsible attitude towards one’s health…
– the ability to increase the quality of artistic expression…
– new discourses in the understanding of creative creation and expression…
– skills of energetic – non-verbal communication with the audience…
– the ability to increase the repertoire, methods and techniques aimed at independent artistic activity…
– the ability to strengthen their artistic individuality…
It is clear to the participants that yoga offers endless possibilities for which adoption takes more time, but they understand that no one will
take the first step instead of them. We’ll never know how high it can go helicopter if we don’t get into it.
Yoga and creative flow
Yoga practice offers its answer to the topic of creativity and outcomes of creativity.
For a yoga practitioner, artistic creation is not the result of deprivation of basic needs and urges of artists. Yoga does not confirm the point of view that works of art arise from frustration, i.e. dissatisfied needs that allow the individual to avoid inappropriate behaviour by choosing to fantasize and imagine. Sources of imagination or fantasizes appear to yoga practitioners as inexhaustible oceans of freedom in which the individual always has the opportunity to choose… Yoga teaches us that artists participate in the creation of their dreams and in that way, they affect the environment.
