Sky Akasha Tobias (June 3-12)

“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 (June 9-12)

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 analog 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.

Christopher Sigmond (June 3-9)

Christopher wrote his first songs when he was 5 years old living in Kenya. A ”few” years have passed since then, and today he is a multi-instrumentalist and workshop leader, who loves to offer conscious dance to live music.

During Space of Love Christopher will lead four dance workshops: Each workshop has its own theme and is complete in itself, but together they complement each other and make a whole. In the series we will explore four fields of human existence: physical, emotional, intellectual and social. Grounding and integration are emphasised at the end of each workshop. There is no choreography to this dance, but rather it’s about exploring and discovering the movement innate in each moment, and to get an opportunity to express this. The dance is also supported by improvised live music on various instruments, e.g. drums, piano and flute.

People who have participated at Christopher’s workshops have said that they felt safe, calm and good. While having a holistic perspective on the human being, Christopher strives to have a pragmatic approach to what he teaches, especially when it comes to spiritual topics – these things should not be merely theories, but rather understandable, applicable and nurturing in everyday life. Preferably served with a healthy dose of humour!

Following that his music journey expanded and he began traveling solo internationally. In India he recorded an album with musicians from Rajasthan and later another album in Mexico 2012 with “ the soul fire project”. Each different destination inspired his approach to music. He stopped making music during a 5 year period in which he dedicated his life to the practice of meditation, tantra, shamanism and yoga.

Following that he restarted music with a different approach and created his present project “Mystic loop”. For him music is very sacred and a spiritual practice itself. He perceives the power of transmission through his music to the audience which can awaken a deeper aspect of their being. This project is based on improvisation, spontaneous creativity and channeling. The performance is always unique. The same seed songs are performed but always with variations specific to the moment and the audience.

Manereia Hanuman will be accompanying us instrumentally during the mantra singing. Aquarian Sadhana from Kundalini Yoga is composed for the stresses and developments during this time. The hallmark of Aquarius is “we”, not “I”. The hour before sunrise is the time period called “ambrosial hours” or “amrit vela”. During amrit vela, the sun is at a sixty-degree angle to the earth and the energy radiating in sadhana has a “supercharging” result You will receive all the mantras on paper so you can join in even if you are a complete beginner. Dress warmly and bring an extra blanket or sleeping bag with you. As the sun rises, it gets warmer and the layers of clothes decrease. A hat is nice both for the strong energies in the mantras and because it is a bit chilly. We start by reading Japji, here lies the power of the combination of sound “naad” After that it’s time to tone down and do our morning yoga together.

I am passionate about our Nordic roots and the music and mysteries that can be found in our in the historical cultural treasures from this part of the planet. One of the great treasures is that of the herding of the cows each summer. It was generally the women who had the task of managing the cows, flocking them to the forest in the summer, milking them and making products of the milk. 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.
