Yoga & Dance Easter Festival

As the days grow longer once again we are welcoming you to start waking up from the wintery state and connect deeper in body, mind, heart and soul through practices such as yoga, dance, meditation and music! 

We are spread all over the world journeying together at Ängsbacka Online while establishing contact also with a smaller circle of workshopleaders and participants that are celebrating  a more intimate Easter in retreat style at Ängsbacka.

We invite you all to begin and start your journey towards something new. To gently plant the seed within you (maybe even plant something at home in a flower box). Explore the flavours of creativity. Let the nourishing energy of communal love shower your seed and let it set firmly within your heart.

YOGA

Experience the rewarding union of stillness and movement in the yoga classes offered during our days together. Whatever level you are at – complete beginner or seasoned yogi – we invite you to get curious and feel the support from our teachers who will be guiding you in finding that deeper essence within yourself through awareness, presence and breath.

DANCE

Welcome to the dance floor! Explore the space where dance is not just “Dance” – it is meditation, ecstasy, wild, crazy, slow, delicate and everything in between.

Slow down and watch the air move in and out or dive into the expansive freedom of expression of your body! Shake out all tensions and sink deep into your own movement meditative journey. Get prepared for serious tunes and beats!

Music

The Houseband will accompany us on the journey all the way from beginning to end. Allow yourself to be carried by the sounds, rhythm and vibrations of sacred mantras, heart songs and beautiful meandering melodies. Breath in and out, relax, enjoy and sing along if you want!

PLANTING NEW SEEDS FOR YOUR LIFE!

Through history Easter has been the time of year for rebirth, renewal, fertility and the triumph of light over darkness.

Regardless if the origin of the myths for celebration are Saxon, Egyptian, Pagan or Christian. Easter is a time for new beginnings, letting go of the old and waking up to the new.

We invite you all to begin and start your journey towards something new. To gently plant the seed within you. Explore the flavours of creativity. Let the nourishing energy of communal love shower your seed and let it set firmly within your heart.

The warm sunlight of spring has finally arrived and will make you grow. Grow towards your inner majestic tree filled with your life and blossoming potential.

As the egg is round, endless, and full of the promise of life. You are vast, eternal and full of promise for your own unique life.

So come let’s go into the garden of your soul and in the softest of soils plant your seed so you can blossom forever in love.

Teachers& Musicians

We are proud to bring you a rich offer of workshops, practices, concerts and so much more. All of this is made possible by the amazing teachers and musicians that are freely contributing their amazing knowledge and skills to the program.

Join Yoga & Dance Easter Festival now!

CONNECTION

Our online events always start with connecting in a welcome ceremony on the first day.

This feeling of togetherness will be felt the whole event through distance bridging activities like live concerts, open stages and dances.

 

FOLLOW YOUR FLOW

Each day you have multiple practices, workshops and talks to choose from, and in the evenings there are concerts, dance or an open stage to end the day with.

If you missed a workshop or practice or simply want to revisit it, all that is on the online program will be recorded and available to you for 8 weeks after the event.

Our festivals offer you the chance to try out various workshops and activities based on one’s own longing in the present moment. We aim to set each time slot in the program so there is something for everyone, regardless if one wants to join a workshop or listen to a deepening interview or inquiry with one of the many teachers.

SHARING

During the festival you will participate in a daily sharing circle. Together you create a sacred space for open-hearted and attentive listening. One person shares at a time, while the others sit in silence paying attention to the person sharing. Everyone in the group will have the same amount of time available to them and everything that is said or done within this sacred space stays there, you do not bring it up outside sharing.

Here we can integrate experiences by putting words to them. This is a good place to land, a grounding place to come to every day. And a place where friendships for life can be born.

Sharing is optional, select your choice on the check-out page.

 

How does an online Ängsbacka event work?

Our intentions is to bring as many of the ‘normal’ Ängsbacka event aspects into the online event, it is however different. It is important to know exactly how an online Ängsbacka event works so you can get the best experience possible.

How can I access the event?

After purchasing a ticket for the event you will receive an email from us containing a link to the event page. This is a restricted page so you have to *login with your username and password to see the actual content.

If you have not received the email, please check your spam folder / promotion folder.

* In case this event is your first purchase at Ängsbacka Online you will also receive an email containing an automatically generated username and password needed for you to have access to the restricted content.

Are there any technical requirements?

For the Online event we use two different methods to deliver the content of the event to all participants to ensure the best experience. For broadcasts (Morning practices, Ceremonies, Sound experiences, Concerts, etc.) we embed the video directly on the event page. In case of Workshops and for the daily Sharing Groups we make use of Zoom. All links to the actual workshops will become available on the event page.

Read more about the system requirements for ZOOM. Download the ZOOM meetings client.

Can I use my smartphone to participate in the event?

Yes, but we are concerned it might not give you the best possible experience.

Make sure your internet package is sufficient and your connection is stable and fast enough to work with live video conferencing. We highly recommend to use a device with a bigger screen if you have at hand, such as a tablet or a computer. 

Will the recorded materials be available online after the event?

All recorded materials will be available for at least 8 weeks after the event ends. Some teachers might prefer that their sessions are not  recorded at all, for various reasons.

We would really like our events to be a space in which we can all freely express ourselves and feel safe. At the same time we want everyone to have access to the workshops that have passed in case they missed it or just want to revisit a workshop. To do so we are keen on recording all ZOOM meetings except the daily Sharing groups.

If you have concerns about this in terms of your personal safety or your freedom of expression, etc., we have some options for you:

1. Participate Using a Nickname. You can participate in the event under a nickname. In order to do this click ”participants” on the menu at the bottom of the screen, find yourself on the list of participants on the right side and change your name by selecting the ”rename” button. We encourage you to change your nickname 5 minutes before a workshop takes of to ensure your real name is not in the final recording..

2. Click “Stop Video”. If you do not want others to see the image from your camera but you do not mind having your voice recorded then click “stop video” in the lower left corner of the screen. If you choose this option we highly recommend that you create a Zoom account prior to the event (use the same email as for the event) and add a profile picture/graphic of yourself, which will remain visible during the conversation, this helps other participants easily find you on the screen and sense your presence even though they don’t see you moving.

3. Let us know after a recording has been made that you wish to be taken out of it and we will “edit” you out. More options are available such as: blurring your face and audio processing your voice so it is not recognizable. We take your request very seriously. You can email your requests to online@angsbacka.se accompanied by the name of the workshop and your name.

4. Share from yourself only in “breakout rooms” and not in the main workshop room. Breakout rooms are not being recorded.

5. Do Not Attend. If none of these options work for you, it is best for you to not attend this event, we understand and feel sad if you decide to go with this option.

How does the Online Sharing Group work?

Every day of the event, at 15:00, all who choose to join a sharing group will enter the Sharing meeting on ZOOM as will be announced on the event page. On the first day there will be an introduction on Sharing after which everyone will be send to ‘Breakout Rooms’ in groups of four.

One person shares, while the others sit in silence paying attention to the person sharing. Everyone in the group will have the same amount of time available to them, and everything that is said or done stays in the group. We do not bring it up again outside of sharing.

Sharing is an essential and honored practice at Ängsbacka, and we welcome you to this special space with the sensitivity and open-heartedness that is at its core.

In case you sit with additional questions concerning the event and how it will take place, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Your Online experience matters to us
