Drawing the attention inward is the best way to communicate with oneself without judgment, just observing, until we can really understand ourselves and from there allow changes to happen without being disrupted by them.



29 July – 5  August  2023

Description of the retreat

Origin of consciousness is a seven day retreat that focus on the idea of creating an understanding of the elements that our reality is composed of, getting in contact with them and eventually learning how to let them go when needed.

Using the five elements (Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Space) in our physical and visualization practice as a metaphor for a journey towards ourselves.

YIS - Emma Isokivi YOGA - RETREAT

The Yoga practice started for me almost as joke as a weird thing to do, at first it presented itself to me as just a physical challenge but than it transformed in a series of teachings that were drastically changing view and way of life in an incredibly positive way. A core element to being able to fully appreciate the beauty and the opportunity that everyday are presented to us all. 

Since this deep change happened I decided that I wanted to share that with other people and starting to teach. My study and consequently my teachings are mainly focused on Anatomy, Biomechanics, Yoga Philosophy, Breath Physiology and Meditation.
All of this approached on two fronts: the scientific approach that was the core of my early experiences with yoga and a more traditional and energetic approach. Merging the two to discover that in reality they are the same thing. 

Using a variety of different physical and non-physical practices as a tool to make the practitioners learning concepts through actual experience, so not just an understanding on an intellectual level, that can gave a really deep impact on the experience of life itself.
