Sky Akasha Tobias (August 24-31)

“What a wonderful journey yoga has provided!” It’s been 29 years of keeping the practices alive in my life, learning about the inner journey and understanding the whole. In the early days I tried every style I could find, fast and slow, athletic and still, eventually it led to Sama Yoga, free from extremes and with balance in all aspects of life. This is what I teach and what I live. Marriage and having a child have only enhanced my devotion for yoga and receiving gracefully all that is. Teaching Sama Yoga is always an honour and a blessing.

Eric Amarillo (August 24-31)

As an intuitive multi instrumentalist, yoga-dancer and vocalist Eric works as a channel for healing and awakening frequencies. Combining ancient techniques of overtone chanting and Ki body movements with analogue electronics and jazz harmonics is his unique and groundbreaking way of expressing the Divine. As an audience or partaker of one of Erics sonar meditations you will often be guided to join the chanting and the body movements.

You will awaken dormant DNA, these frequencies work as a cleansing for the chakras, my sonar meditations open up and unlocks so that you can handle and process all the new light codes pouring in. We first sit down in slow breathing, the collective breath sets the tone and then I transcend, the sounds and music thereafter are directly channeled to you, in that room, for that specific moment within this construct of Time.

Two albums are released with Eric Amarillos healing sonar meditations on Spotify: Kybalion and Solar Logos.   Also visit Eric Amarillo on YouTube.

Benefits from Internal power is deeper understanding of how the body naturally is designed to move and work. It is building up the inner power of the body, through re-connecting with its core strength. Based on the ancient systems of the orient (Japanese/Chinese martial arts, Tai Chi, Yoga etc.), it focuses on using tissue (facia) and spirals to generate and direct power through the whole body, rather than just using individual muscles.

There was always music present which sprang out of the women’s direct contact with the wild forest, animals and each other. A completely unique melodic language was created and used daily. That and more from the traditions and fairy tales of folk music and the Swedish folk soul, I am happy to tell about and convey in artistic form when we meet Öland.
