YOGA & DANCE EASTER FESTIVAL – March 28Th – April 1st

March 28 @ 3:00 pm - April 1 @ 3:00 pm

The Yoga and Dance Easter festival is the first festival of the Ängsbacka season. It takes place as life and light is returning to the natural world in springtime. This is one of our more intimate and cozy festivals and offers a beautiful variety of yoga, dance, movement, music, meditation, and other inspiring, vibrant, deep and joyful workshops.

These five days are an intentional and held journey during which you are invited to go into both deep stillness and sweet celebration. Together, with open hearts, we follow spring and the natural cycles in welcoming a new dawn.

“Let us welcome the light and the change of the seasons together – in sacredness and ceremony.”

THE EASTER JOURNEY

Maundy Thursday: We start our journey with some welcoming workshops, a nourishing dinner, and a beautiful welcome ceremony in the light of the full moon. In the welcome ceremony, we land together in sweetness and celebration and we meet the musicians, workshop leaders, and also our personal sharing groups.
After the ceremony you can choose between dancing loose to magical music in the upper barn, hanging out in the café and catching up with old and new friends or if you want to land and embrace the stillness in silent sitting.
On Good Friday we dive into the program with a day filled with yoga, dance, movement, lectures, and other inspiring workshops. It’ll be a magical plant concert and an organic dance journey in the evening after dinner and also Ängsbacka’s beloved Open Stage.
Easter Eve Saturday we end the Morning Meeting by entering a day of silence. The silence is for us to get a chance to land in ourselves and to scourge all the noise around us that usually takes our attention. In silence, the answers and sometimes even the questions come. It will be a day of reflection and deep presence. The day smoothly moves into an all-night-long gong night with healing sounds and deep relaxation and rest or if you want to dive into the safe and held death meditation, also with vibrating sounds for healing.
Easter Day Sunday we will end our silence with a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the morning, a ceremony that will begin the celebration that will last the rest of the day and night. After the silence, you will be captivated by all the beauty that is available around you, and maybe you will experience reality in a new way. In the evening we will have a big and juicy celebration together!
On Monday, the last day of the festival, we gather again to share our experiences of our time together. All framed by music, presence and togetherness.

WORKSHOPS

Every day you will have the chance to choose between both indoor and outdoor yoga classes, movement and dance practices, meditations, forest walks and other inspiring workshops. On a couple of occasions, early in the morning, we offer Sadhana for those who wish to greet the sun with traditional vedic chanting and Yoga.

YOGA

During the day the program offers different styles of yoga, suitable for all levels and experiences. The teachers supporting you have many years of experience and will all bring their own special flavour into the festival. They are deeply passionate about what they do and are there to guide you in finding that deeper essence within yourself through awareness, presence and breath.

DANCE

Welcome to the dance floor! Dance is not just “dance” in the Easter Festival – it’s meditation, ecstasy, wild, crazy, slow, delicate and everything in between.
Slow down and watch the air move in and out or dive into the expansive freedom of expression of your body! Shake out all tensions and sink deep into your own movement meditative journey. Get prepared for serious tunes and beats!
