The YangSheng retreat is inspired by the Daoist YangSheng "life nourishment" practices and teachings. The purpose of this retreat is to discover, plant and nourish seeds within that lead towards good health, vitality & happiness.
Taught by Kate & Henri Lebedev, whom have travelled the world dedicating their lives to studying the internal arts of QiGong, NeiGong, TaiJi, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Yang Sheng, Daoism, Buddhism, Yogic practices & more..
Activities are designed with a rhythmic flow, changing from theory to practice to rest.
