Grounding into womanhood
The element of Earth gives us this body - our temple for the soul in this lifetime. By coming back to the Earth we come back to the power of our inner wild woman. By entering all that Earth has to offer, we can find stability, roots and grounding in our everyday lives as women. It is the Earth that gives us the fertile ground from where to grow into stability. We cannot reach high without growing roots deep down below. A spiritual woman is one that connects to the great Spirit of Mother Gaia so she can rise into her own soul expression. In this training we will explore all the teachings the element Earth has to give us in it's own unique language.
Earth Mysteries in the woods of Carinthia
We will explore the healing arts of Mother Nature in the green and magic woods of Carinthia - Austria. Surrounded by the healing green of trees and the grounding force of the Earth we can enter into the teachings that great Mother Gaia has to offer. We will reconnect - to her and her very essence. Because it is her that we have to touch, so we can be touched as women in our very essence. Carinthia is an old part of Mother Earth - here celtic tribes have gathered, honored and held rituals to connect to the Earth. The ancient teachings of Yoga will ground us in Asana, Tantra, Meditation, Bandha and Mudra - stable, steady, nice and easy, full of sensual enjoyment and shamanic power - so we can ground deep and rise up high.

Pina Babic. Pina was introduced to Yoga and Taoist Arts when she was only a little girl. Growing up with holistic knowledge about the Cycle, Seasons, the Moon, Meridians, Organs and Superfoods allowed her to become a true Master Teacher in Yin Yoga, Taoism and Sacred Womanly Arts. Her knowledge is vast and comes from a place of reflection and decades of self-discovery. She will guide us into the sacred element of earth and what it means to feel and work with it in our bodies as women.

Female yogic perspectives
We are working exclusively with women to empower them on their path to awakening. The theme of the element Earth will be approached through different techniques such as Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, Mantra, Mudra, Ceremony and Ritual. Together we are entering a sacred space of being by calling in our connections with our roots, Mama Nature, our ancestors, our feelings and intuitive wisdom.
It becomes a living wisdom - through each one of us.
