Flowing with Sridaiva to Uncover Your Personal "Divine Destiny"
Get ready to re-align yourself -- on this retreat you'll not only enjoy the community of yogis in this stunning setting on the beaches of Nicaragua, your daily sessions will be focused around Sridaiva Yoga. For those unfamiliar with this type of yoga, Sridaiva is focused around the Bowspring, a dynamically balanced posture that will help you build strength to enhance all of your activities and your life! It offers a new view on body alignment that keeps healthy and graceful.
Type of Event
Each day will feature a workshop-style vinyasa flow practice. We will use Sridaiva engagements and alignments in the flow to help uncover and release the poor posture patterns -- or Samskaras -- that our bodies have developed over the years. Samskaras act like a scratch in a record that we get stuck in, replaying lyrics and stories that are no longer true, that hold us back from the rest of the grooves on the record that complete our song. Sridaiva helps us find our song by giving us a template to work off of in order to help our bodies move out of the repetitive patterns and into a more productive posture.
Although some of the days have an anatomical focus, everything is connected, so the practice will also explore the relationship between that area and its effects on the rest of the body. Each yoga practice will include:
Pranayama and meditation
Yin Yoga and Myofascial work to release deeply held dominant patterns so that your body is more open and able to learn new patterns
Brief anatomical discussion setting the purpose and intent
Vinyasa flow incorporating the above
Meditation and Savasana for deeper integration.
Sessions are for those familiar to yoga, but will be taught to all levels. If you have any concerns, please contact the instructor with questions and possible customizations.
