Aloha Camp

Aloha Camp on Suomen taidekaupungissa, Mänttä-Vilppulassa kesäisin toimiva hyvänolon luova huvikumpu. Aloha Camp tarjoaa luovuutta ja hyvinvointia lisääviä kursseja luonnon helmassa, suomalaisessa järvimaisemassa. Entisen Hietalan tilan vanhat hirsirakennukset ja pihapiiri ovat saaneet uuden iloisen ilmeen Aloha Campin toiminnan myötä. Vanhan tilan leppoisa tunnelma ja upea sijainti luonnon keskellä antavat mahdollisuuden rentoutumiseen ja uusien innostavien ideoiden syntymiseen. Luovuus, vapaus ja ilo ovat vahvasti läsnä Aloha Campin toiminnassa. Aloha Campin toiminta on suunnattu pääasiassa aikuisille.

19.-21.7. Creativity and Self Expression retreat with Mathieu Leporini & Emilia Haljala

*Fully booked

We invite you to join us on a weekend-long journey to ignite your own creativity and rise your self-expression.
On this journey we focus on learning more on who we are, removing blocks, revitalizing our creative potential and improving our self-expression skills. During these three days we will explore various practices for self-knowledge and self-expression. These practices include yoga, meditation, writing, movement, improvisation, music, personal development workshops and shamanic practices.

Creativity belongs to everyone, it is more a way of doing rather than what you are doing. It is also a way of accepting to be.
We approach creativity from a playful perspective where we celebrate both the success and “mistakes”. We dive deep into the roots of creativity and wake up our inner curious child. A safe environment allows us to discover, learn and grow. The retreat is suitable for everyone who is interested in expanding their knowledge of themselves. No previous experience of yoga nor artistic expression skills are required.

The cost of the retreat is 250€ (including vegetarian meals and shared accomodation in a cottage). Only 10 spots are available. The course will start on Friday at 12:00 and end on Sunday at 17:00.

Emilia Haljala is an actress, yoga teacher and an entrepreneur whose teaching combines yoga and self-expression practice for improving self-knowledge and creativity.

Mathieu Leporini is leading group and individual sessions on energy healing, meditation, shamanic practices, personal development workshops and guidance for the past 15 years to help and support people growing, loving, shining and reminding who they are.

Aloha, the joyful sharing of a present moment!

Yoga & Conscious Art workshops with Carla Hernando & Emilia Haljala 23.-25.8.2019

CREATIVE FLOW WEEKEND – come for a day or two! 🌞
 DAY 1: Yoga, Chakras & Conscious art
DAY 2: Organic movement & Soulful writing
How often you get the chance to express what you really want to, what you really mean, who you really are?
 
When we are deeply connected to ourselves, we are also connected to our creativity. That connection allows us to express ourselves more freely. Everyone is creative, but the connection is easy to lose in a world full of rules and distractions. These workshops will give you the chance to explore your own creative potential. We will learn to let go of restrictive thoughts such as ”I can’t, I shouldn’t, I am not able to”. Art, in any of its forms, is a useful tool of immense emotional development, which helps us to awaken our inner creative child.
The Creative Flow weekend is suitable for anyone who is interested in creative writing, movement, yoga, art, spiritual growth and self-expression. No previous experience or certain skills are required, we only ask you to bring a pinch of curiosity with you. Workshops will be taught in English but supported with Finnish and Spanish if needed.
SATURDAY: Yoga, Chakras & Conscious art
We will start the day with a playful yoga sequence combined with breathing practice, visualization exercises and music. Through these practices everyone can explore their own relationship with creativity. What does creativity mean to me? What is my natural way to express it and how I could use it to serve me? Yoga practice allows us to relax, be present, connect and clear space for new thoughts and ideas.
In the afternoon we will work on our energy centers through colors and get our hands dirty with conscious painting. We will discover the relationship between the colors and the chakras they represent, making special emphasis on the lower chakras, those of safety, creativity and joy. At the end of the day we will have a relaxation with Tibetan bowls and close the session with a cup of tea and sharing.
 
If you wish to stay over night, there is sauna, swimming and other fun evening program!
SUNDAY: Organic movement & Soulful writing
Sunday morning will start with a fresh, fun and dynamic workshop of movement and body awareness through physical theater techniques. We will use movement to find mental, physical and energetic balance based on the teachings of Jacques Lecoq. These practices help us to find our true essence and release one’s fears or limiting beliefs. By giving great importance to your instinct and intuition, you will experience how your body starts naturally acting from unconscious.
 
After the movement session we will dive into emotional and introspective writing inspired by the movement. We will apply the body at the time of writing. Many times words do not flow while sitting in front of a computer or a sheet of paper. But what if the words or inspiration flowed first through the body, staying on the surface of the skin and then being transmitted on paper? On this workshop we will forget the rules of writing and focus on the text that rises naturally without pressure.
 
Nature itself is creative and has a lot to offer to our senses. In the afternoon we will move outside and shift from inner contemplation to exploring the environment around us. How does the environment affect us? Does is feed or suffocate our creativity? Does is open or close our senses? We will explore the connection between internal and external factors in different locations, the focus being in the present moment. Lastly, we will gather all of this sensorial experience and pour it on paper.
We will end the day / weekend with a final relaxation and little sharing session.
 
SCHEDULE & PRICES:
Day 1: 65€ (including lunch) 10:00-17:00 Day 2: 65€ (including lunch) 10:00-17:00 Both days: 115€ Night at the camp: 30€ (shared accommodation, own linen/ sleeping bag)
 
WITH WHO?
Carla Hernando has trained in theater and acting at the Institute of the Arts Barcelona, as well as in physical theater at the Rose Bruford College of Theater & Performance, deepening in the knowledge of Jacques Lecoq’s movement techniques and how to apply these to an emotional expression through the body. Carla is now applying all of her physical, emotional and holistic knowledge teaching classes and workshops on creativity, self-expression, meditation and Alexander Technique exercises in Barcelona and abroad.
 
Emilia is a Finnish yoga teacher, actress and entrepreneur whose teaching combines yoga and self-expression skills to improve creativity and wellbeing. Emilia has been studying acting, theater, drama education and yoga in Finland, England, Spain and India.
