In this workshop you will learn to deliberately create a feeling of connection to yourself when you practice yoga so that it becomes a feeling you can return to over and over again every time you get on the mat.
This day retreat is designed for yogis of any level of practice. It is the perfect workshop for a more experienced practitioner to take along with a friend is new to yoga.
New to Yoga
If you are new to yoga, you will learn how to perform a sun salutation along with instruction. This helps new yogis have one thing they can do well and practice on their own. Because the sun salutation is commonly taught in yoga classes, knowing one version really well makes it easier for beginners to feel at home in a class, Although new practitioners may not be able to create that lost in the moment feeling every time they hit the mat quite yet, they will have the skills to do it once they get the hang of the physical actions of the postures.
Intermediate Yoga Practitioners
For those who have been practicing yoga for a while, you will have the tools to create a personal practice where you feel completely immersed in the moment. Intermediate level students will be able to perform a sun salutation on their own with a flowing quality of easy connection to breath throughout the sequence.
Advanced Yoga Students
Advanced yoga practitioners will learn how to sustain postures for long periods of time without creating unnecessary strain. This will help advanced yogis to sustain poses longer, and work more deeply into them.
Yoga teachers will find this retreat help them to develop better cues to help their students understand how breathing and movements interconnect.
