Program

During this week, you will pay extra attention to Ashtanga primary series and relaxation in the evenings, incorporating extra time for this throughout the practice. Learn about and experience deep relaxation and rest. The class will also look at how the entire practice can and should have a restorative effect.

Each week consists of the following:

  • A full week to work with one of London Yoga School's experienced teachers. All of their teachers are fully certified and have years of experience.
  • Morning pranayama.
  • Daily Asana class (Ashtanga style).
  • Restorative asana practice in the afternoon - a relaxing way to finish the day.
  • Meditation
  • Although each week has all of the above listed offerings, there is a specific focus for each retreat, and they are taught by a particular teacher who will share their individual expertise and knowledge.

Daily schedule

  • Morning classes: 2 hours to 2.5 hours of Ashtanga yoga practice (if students are familiar enough with Ashtanga Led class, one day out of the 7 days will be a Led class, otherwise all classes will be a Mysore practice)
  • Afternoon classes: 1 hour to 1.30 hours of Ashtanga workshop / studying and 30-minute of relaxation / meditation
  • Evening classes: 1 hour of stretching and 15-minute of relaxation
