South Spain Soothing Yoga Retreat

During this week-long retreat, you will explore the depths of the yoga practice: breath, Bandha, Drishti, asana, and most importantly, intention.

Asana practice will play a key role. You will examine how even the seemingly simple asanas have physical layers upon layers, through which one can advance. And how these “simple” asanas are in fact gateway poses for developing your physiological understanding of what appear to be more complex asanas.

Program

What is advanced yoga? For many, the mind will automatically conjure up images of individuals in contorted asanas. However, when we reflect upon the meaning of the word “yoga”, which is union, it becomes clear that an advanced yoga practice cannot simply be about one's ability to access a complex asana. If that were the case then a gymnast or dancer would automatically be a yogi and vice versa.

During this week-long retreat, you will explore the depths of advanced yoga practice: breath, Bandha, Drishti, asana, and most importantly, intention. Asana practice will play a key role. You will examine how even the seemingly simple asanas have physical layers upon layers, through which one can advance. And how these “simple” asanas are in fact gateway poses for developing our physiological understanding of what appear to be more complex asanas.

You will discuss the relationship between asana and intention. Between breath and the awakening of your full consciousness. Exploring the layers upon layers of consciousnesses through which one can advance to their natural state, with grace.

Each morning will start with chanting, meditation, and pranayama, followed by a deep and purposeful asana practice. The afternoons will be a mixture of workshops designed to explore specific aspects of the practice in more detail. Participants can expect a focus on alignment accompanied by mindful assists.
