Yogis of all levels are welcome to the retreat. A Jivamukti class trial is recommended before you attend the retreat, as it is a dynamic flow style of yoga. It will require you to commit to your classes. The retreat teacher, Emma Henry, is one of the top Jivamukti teachers and is very experienced at teaching mixed level groups, so you can be sure of feeling challenged and inspired to safely explore and deepen your yoga practice.
Each Jivamukti class offers a vigorous asana practice that is infused with inspiring teachings derived from the ancient yogic texts. A class presents classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing Vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation, and meditation. Modifications and progressions are given so that students of all levels find the yoga classes rewarding.
While technology can bring plenty of benefits to your daily lives it can mean that you are always on. Through the retreat, take time to switch off. With emails on your smart phones, multiple social media accounts, and the internet at your finger tips, it can be difficult to do so. Thus, there are digital detoxes to do just that. You are asked to switch off your devices for a powerful dose of time offline and healthy you time. The yoga retreat is a good place to take a proper break from technology. You can fill your break with yoga, good food, refreshing nature, and downtime.
