Each morning, there will be morning Mysore class based on the traditional method of Ashtanga yoga. All guests will be self-led into the practice under the watchful guidance and supportive instruction of Laruga and her assistant. This will be an exciting opportunity to become more profoundly grounded and immersed in the practice within the beautiful natural setting of Xinalani.
The evening workshops will be dedicated to all aspects of the Ashtanga yoga methodology including practical techniques and philosophical wisdom in regards to integrating yoga principles into daily life. This is a time to be inspired and more deeply rooted within the true nature of the self through the context of Ashtanga yoga and all the beauty and insight it entails. This retreat is appropriate for all levels.
Since a young age, Laruga has been fascinated with mind and body connections and spiritual thought which later attracted her to the practice of yoga in 1996 after a sincere connection and study of yoga philosophy. It was not until she stumbled upon Ashtanga yoga when she began the journey, immersing herself into a devoted practice a few years later in 1998.
Since then, she has continued to draw inspiration from her daily visit to the mat, along with long term studies of Ashtanga yoga at KPJAYI in Mysore, India, practicing under the guidance of the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and whom she considers as her principle teacher and guide, his grandson, R. Sharath Jois. Laruga has made 11 trips to KPJAYI and began her studies there after 10 years of established practice.
Through it all, Laruga teaches as an act of deep sharing and love for what yoga develops in each individual, facilitating space to open, challenges, and inspires those to realize their inherent potential. Currently, Laruga directs the Ashtanga yoga program at Yogayama in Stockholm, Sweden, and teaches workshops and retreats internationally.
As an advanced level practitioner and student of yoga as well as a Level 2 authorized teacher, Laruga entered into teaching after years of sustained practice and brings with her a combined total over 25 years experience instructing body movement. In turn, she is dedicated to teaching the method of Ashtanga yoga to its fullest capacity, cultivating transparency to the tradition, and the deeply rich lineage the practice originates, otherwise known as parampara.
