Located close to the salt water pool, it comprises 6 ensuite guestrooms without kitchens and is suitable for those looking for simpler living.
This 300-hour immersion follows on where 8 Limbs Yoga's 200-hour level 1 immersion leaves off. This training is for those who have at least a basic level of most aspects of yoga integrated into their daily life. If you are still struggling with this, 8 Limbs Yoga recommends that you first attend their level 1 immersion. The level 1 is an excellent format with comprehensive techniques on how to achieve this.
The level 2 immersion is suitable for anyone wishing for a deep immersion into the more advanced aspects of yoga as well as for those who seek a professional education. The program includes the physical therapy and rehabilitation possibilities of yoga, looking at yoga prescriptions for specific physical problems and pathologies, as well as modifications for those unable to do a traditional Ashtanga yoga practice.
You will also delve into the anatomy of the more complex postures of the primary series (Kurmasana, Drop Backs, etc.) and the intermediate postures and their adjustments. Another topic will be Mantra yoga, including japa, using a mala, and Sanskrit chanting.
Gregor will take you deeper into the more advanced aspects of pranayama such as bhastrika, internal and external breath retentions, and much more. He will also teach how to integrate these into meditation. The main focus will be to establish yourself in a daily practice of the higher limbs of yoga.
Gregor’s latest textbook, "Samadhi The Great Freedom", will also be covered in details including Patanjali’s 8 samadhis and his process of de-conditioning. Emphasis will also be placed on bhavana, cultivating thought patterns in alignment with life and the bringing about of mystical and spiritual states. More advanced concepts of the Bhagavad Gita and yoga Sutra will also be covered together with Vedic chants and much more.
The program is challenging but 8 Limbs Yoga believes the content to be more than equally rewarding and thereby engaging. There will be 6 full days of tuition per week followed by a whole day off. The training is Yoga Alliance 300-hour accredited.
