BODY, MIND & MY GRIND
Ancient Future presents...
BODY, MIND & MY GRIND | Permaculture & Yoga Weekend Boot Camp
The boot camp for the forward thinker who wants to grow mentally, physically and spiritually.
- Do you sometimes feel stuck and want to change your situation?
- Do you feel there's more to life but struggle to find true purpose?
- Would you like to explore your inner world and rediscover your connections with nature?
We have created a series of boot camps that connect permaculture and yoga and are designed for you to get away from your distractions, for you to focus on yourself, your dreams and your growth and to re-calibrate and redesign yourself in a holistic and sustainable way.
Our boot camps offer a full program of workshops, workouts, meditations and personal development practices. We use both modern & ancient techniques to help you re-discover all parts of your-self.
Main activities & areas of study:
- An Introduction to Permaculture: how to use the ethics, principles and tools in your daily life.
Standing on the permaculture ethics of earth care, people care and fair share; we explore what you the individual is doing in your life and community with these ethics we also look at what you could be doing more of to enhance this. We then use the permaculture principles to guide us while we are on this journey, and through a series of individual and group activities we experiment and play with several permaculture tools and techniques that support you in discovering the patterns, cycles and universal laws that create and shape your reality.
- The YogaSkills Method (YSM): Movements, Postures, Breathing and the Philosophy of Practice
The geometric positions and postures seen in the hieroglyphs and temple walls of Ancient Egypt are some of the earliest manifestations of yoga. We cover the Ancient Kemetic postures along with breathwork and meditation techniques that enhance ones practice and daily lifestyle. We breathe slow and controlled as we flow from one posture into the other. This stimulates the Parasympathetic aspect of the Central Nervous System and brings on physiological and chemical changes to support practice. We connect the inhalation and exhalation with the motion of the body. Our intention is not just to stretch the muscles or strengthen the body but also to move energy very precisely. Resistance will release from the body and resistance will release from the mind. In this relaxed state there is rejuvenation and there is healing on all levels.
- Bio-hacking Techniques and Integration Methods
We look into and explore what you could be doing from the ground up to enhance your mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing; everything from composting and gardening activities, to mindfulness and meditation techniques, to observation and dream work methods. We share practical tips and tricks to get you reflecting, manifesting and moving forward efficiently in all areas of your life.
