How would it feel to feel truly, joyfully alive? To reach clarity of what it is you really want out of your life, and build courage to pursue the craziest of your dreams? To burn out what no longer serves you and make room for what will? To get really great sleep? To manifest all kinds of abundance-miracles into your life? To meet some new, international friends?
In the ocean of ‘let’s just chillax” types of getaways it is time for a different kind of a yoga vacay! During our FIERCE retreat we will focus primarily on the Solar Plexus Energy Center, also know in Sanskrit as Manipura Chakra. Manipura, a powerhouse of the body is associated with the natural element of fire- as in heat, action, energy, burning out impurities, and fiercely standing for ourselves.
Its color is yellow, hence its links to fire and the sun. Manipura/ Solar Plexus is directly linked to your sense of self governing your self-esteem, sense of purpose, personal identity, individual will. It also helps in the healthy digestion, and metabolism of your physical body.
Come with us to to picturesque Buczynowa Dolina to re- ignite long lost passions, balance all emotions, to expand your self-awareness, to clear harmful blockages, and boost your emotional and physical well-being.
You can expect fun and active yoga practice, energizing outdoor activities, hiking mountains, exploring the Klimkowskie lake.
All the activities are designed to ignite your inner fire and help you step into power, while allowing your healthy ego shine. And did we mentioned the sauna on the property?
This retreat is *especially* for you if:
– you’ve you been feeling lost, unmotivated, and lacking the energy to get up off the couch and start working toward your goals
– you like to ‘work hard and play hard’
– you have been feeling low, tend to fall into the victim mentality, you have a difficulty setting boundaries, you occasionally experience insecurity and low self-esteem
– you can be hard on yourself, doubting your attributes and abilities

Don’t think twice- just do it- join us for a glorious getaway where you can completely recharge your batteries, and detox your mind, body and spirit. Stepping away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday routines will add another direction to this journey of well being.
Think of priceless conversations with new friends, sharing experiences, tapping into your greater potential, manifesting new things into your life, and leaving behind those qualities that no longer serve you.

Edyta: ‘I recently came back to Kraków after living in Manchester for 16 years and I’m so excited to be here! Here’s a few words about me on the yoga front: I first set foot on a mat in 2016 and was astonished at how quickly it started healing me mentally and physically. From that moment, I knew this was something I wanted to share with people. I deepened my practice throughout the years, observing the growth of the impact of yoga on my physical body and my way of thinking. This solidified me in my knowledge that I wanted to teach yoga. I couldn’t wait to start spreading the joy and healing effects. Graduating from a course led by Dominik Trznadel meant I felt ready to do just that. Dominik helped me achieve 70h Yoga Alliance in Yin yoga and Chinese Medicine and I followed on to learn from Stephanie Millar Kopyar during my 200h Hatha Raja Vinyasa Teacher Training. Being deeply embedded in the fantastic community that is Joga Centrum, I’m grateful for the opportunity to share what I know with yogis old and new. During classes with me you can expect focus on individuality and celebrating the differences within our bodies through letting go of the competitive mindset. I hope to create a relaxing, safe space for you to release and come out refreshed and having learnt something new about yourself. Hope to see you on the mat!’
