"The Body of Nature" - Sensit Yoga™ Somatics Retreat at Inama Institute Trumer Seenland, Salzburg, Austria

Send Inquiry

Beautiful natural environments promote our wellbeing. They spontaneously arouse our sensory awareness, inviting us to embody our natural state of peaceful wakefulness.

Sensit Yoga Somatic retreats give us an opportunity to deepen the sense of who we are underneath the mental noise and superficial identities. To embody ourselves means to feel it - in the marrow of our bones - that we are not just IN nature. We are the Earth's body - we ARE nature. There is a deep sense of belonging that accompanies this realisation.

  Sensit Yoga 

Sensit Yoga practice and movement 

Being this nature-body (or animal-body) gives us access to its wisdom and teachings. It allows us to become more intuitive, better informed about the course of action that serves our healing and growth.

Our movement practice will take place twice daily in this incredibly beautiful, spacious Inama room, with floor-to-ceiling windows, a perfect place for immersing ourselves in the deep inner journey of conscious movement, self-care, and healing practices. Awakened breath, bone intelligence, nourishing organs and fascia, and tunning into the body of fluids, will be our main fields of exploration.

But our practice will not stay only in the yoga room: When awakened, the nature-body will continue to experience and express itself in other surroundings: It will slow down your pace to feel how your feet touch the ground as you walk. It will explore sensations in your hand as you touch the grass, leaves or water, or when you rest your back against the trunk of a tree. It will feel how the food truly tastes when you eat with presence and mental silence. It will feel its cells get nourished by the oxygen, while recognising your symbiotic relationship with the environment. Your individual breath being a part of the Universal breath, that connects all living beings. 

With social identities fading into the background, the body of nature reveals that, even our ordinary communication and interactions can have a very different flavor. We become more fully alive and available to each other in the present moment. Available not through judgment or expectations, but through the self that is always present beneath the conditioning - the natural self, with its benevolent curiosity, kindness and joy.

If you are new to Sensit Yoga Somatics:

Sensit Yoga Somatics is a blend of hatha yoga, Body-Mind Centering, Continuum, Feldenkrais and other embodied movement modalities. In this practice we always make sure that we move from the inner body, with sensitivity and awareness. We look for the support coming from our relationship to gravity, and from the connections between our inner spaces and structures. This softens the tensions and our nervous system can relax, become curious and receptive of new learning. This new learning is about caring for the body, honoring the breath, and listening to its guidance. It is about feeling connected to the earth and the environment around us.

In attentive movement, the body communicates where it has been storing the unnecessary tension and we learn how to release this tension by directing our attention and breath, by initiating movement from certain areas, and by working with gravity in particular ways. It becomes much easier to tune into the body's signals, develop our intuition, recognise when we are falling into the unhealthy patterns and automatic reactions, and start to build new patterns of more conscious living.

Unleashing the energy that was used for holding the accumulated tension results in a grounded, energized, joyful and effortless way of moving and being.


 Maja Zilih

Maja is the founder of Sensit Yoga™ Somatics. She has been teaching yoga and meditation since 2007. Her method Sensit Yoga is a mindful and interoceptive practice that aims at expanding the awareness of all the levels of our being. The practice combines yoga asana infused with elements of body-mind centering, natural/primal movement, functional exercises, tension release techniques and movements that arise for each individual in their own way. The sessions always complete with meditation and a long relaxation. Expect to be continuously invited to feel, sense and move from and through your inner body. Sometimes you follow the instructions, other times you inquire into the needs of your unique body and let it take the lead. You explore and utilize your relationship with space and gravity. You play with different ways in which you can awaken fluidity and ease not only in the body and breath but also in the mind. By becoming conscious of your deep primal inner connections you find new source of support. Your body begins to release the unnecessary tension and each movement becomes an opportunity for a total body-mind-spirit integration.

  What do participants say? - TESTIMONIALS

What touched me the most was how working with your center and grounding yourself can also bring you closer to the people who are in such different places in life than you. The retreat offers a path to internal and external connections as well as some practical learning about anatomy do explore during movement. Very enriching experience, so lucky to have taken part in it!
Marta from Poland, July 2022

This is a retreat that can be experienced by anyone, beginner or advanced, who wants to become more aware of their body, and how their body is connected to the world around them. I learned so much, and I am grateful for everyone I met and for Maja who truly loves what she does.
Eva from Greece, July 2022

Just like the previous year, the retreat was an extremely relaxing experience where I could totally let go of everything after a year of hard work. The group was also fantastic, different people from different backgrounds and yet there was an immediate connection.
Ann from Belgium, July 2022

Sensit Yoga Somatics was a fantastic experience in an amazing location and environment. Its uniqueness, the people and the concept make it beneficial to the mind and body in a huge way. Back home to reality, we are able to absorb and reminisce what a great time we had.
Bert Moreno from USA, 2022

What a very relaxing and memorable retreat this was! This spacious venue with amazing view is really idyllic space to relax! I loved your teaching style, with embodied anatomy and mindful breathing practices. I now have an increased understanding of my own body and I receive more from each asana. I will use much of what I learned in sessions at home and in daily life. And last but not least, I met a beautiful mix of lovely people! For all that I am very thankful! - Hanka from Belgium, July 2021

Thank you for this incredible week. It has given me relief from stress and inner peace. Working with you and this group has helped me develop a strong relationship to myself and my body. It wasn’t possible for me to imagine how much I would receive from you and this location. It was incredible. After the yoga, my whole body and soul felt deeply grounded and connected to everything. I cant explain it well, but I am extremely grateful for being part of this retreat - Paula from Austria, 2021

What a wonderful retreat you gave us on this beautiful island! It helped me relax completely and recharge my batteries. I will not forget the warm welcome you and your lovely family gave me on the first day. May the long time sun shine upon you… -  Ann from Belgium, July 2021

As a beginner, I felt like this was my first real contact with Yoga. Profound, deep, well-grounded. I enjoyed every single day of this retreat. And I am really glad that I got to know Yoga in this way. Thank you very much - Harald from Austria, 2021

Thank you for this wonderful yoga retreat and for the opportunity to be a part of this warm group of people. It helped me feel calm after a very long time. I loved the sea and the wind and the so many stars in the sky. I loved being at the beach every day, and in the evenings getting together and eating delicious meals. I am taking all these experiences with me now, and I will try to remember how it feels being the jellyfish in the sea - Eva from Greece, July 2021

Maja's knowledge is so vast; from pranayama to asana sequencing and alignment to meditation. Her teaching methods are so complete with no question going unanswered. Keep shining Maja, you're a true treasure to yoga!!! See you again! - Annika, J, Paros , 2019

Thank you warmly for this unique, interesting and rewarding week. Thank you for your spiritually guided lessons thanks to which I am a bit nearer to myself. Thank you for all your support from my heart! - Nadia from Italy, 2018
Being born and socialized in a country that produced and reproduced “followers”, I’ve never thought that I will wish one day to “follow” somebody. And here I am, happy to follow you and your spirit, happy to silent the mind and discover the truth around and the truth within. In deep appreciation
Rossalina, L. from Austria, 2017
You, your family, your enormous passion, have made this place and this retreat an unexplainable, yet fully acknowledged and felt necessity – for the unknown it leads to, as well as the answers and still deeper questions and truths. My love and admiration
Thank you for organizing everything, thank you for bringing such a wonderful group together, thank you for transmitting us your knowledge, thank you for your energy!!!  This place is indeed amazing and perfect for a retreat J.   It was my first retreat and I am so grateful for your help to make us go further in our practice. I really feel that I accomplished a lot in my body and mind.I love your philosophical beginnings of the class, already from before. They make me think a lot and apply it in my daily life.
I enjoyed this week a lot. I learned so much about yoga and experienced my body and myself in new ways. All our yoga classes were a lot of fun and made me want to learn and practice yoga even more.
