Iyengar Yoga Holiday
You will be practising standing, sitting and inverted postures, as well as restful and restorative postures. You will focus on the alignment of the body with the help of props such as bricks, belts, bolsters, weights, chairs and ropes.
Type of Event
The workshop begins Friday afternoon and ends Thursday around midday to give students the possibility to arrive and depart on these days. There is one class on the arrival and departure days and two classes on the other days apart from the yoga free day in the middle of the week when you will have the opportunity to take part in one of the suggested outings. We will be practising standing, sitting and inverted, as well as restful and restorative postures. Everyone will work within his or her own capability. You will be able to build up a strong foundation for your own practice. The yoga lessons will be taught by Karin Montali who obtained her Iyengar Yoga teaching diploma from the British Iyengar Yoga Association in 2001.
The accommodation will be in the monastery Santa Maria Maddalena (Suore Agostiniane) in the middle of the historic centre of Spello. The accommodation wing of the ancient monastery has been recently restored and tastefully decorated and furnished. All rooms have views of the surrounding countryside or of Spello’s rooftops and are equipped with en-suite bathrooms. Once all rooms in the monastery are booked (first come, first served), or if you prefer to stay elsewhere anyway, there are many alternatives in the centre of Spello which we can suggest.
