the bow and the bridge; the cobra and the upward dog; all of the warriors ? We will break them down step by step
for you, so there’s no doubt about how to work correctly with this powerful asanas.

18:30 Introduction to the KLESHAS / During the retreat we will be working closely with some of the kleshas
(causes of suffering) and specifically on wednesday we’ll pay attention to ASMITA (EGO) and AVIDYA
(IGNORANCE). Wonder how to reduce it’s negative effect in daily life ? Let yoga and awareness do it’s job
in this beautiful practice.

discover how strong the WEST (backside) of your body is with this morning flow sequence while defying gravity.

18:30 Working with RAGA (ATTACHMENT) / Cause we come into the world without anything and we leave
it the same way, develop the force of detachment from any kind of spiritual and material possessions. Yoga and
mindfulness will help along the way.

SATURDAY MAY 30

your body in a wide range of poses that include, forward bends, inversions, twists and balancing poses.

18:30 Loosing RABHINIVESHA (fear of death) / There is an inevitable ending to life, but not because of it, we should
stop enjoying the splendour of it. As one of the KLESHAS, being afraid of the unknown, can be liberated with yoga
intentions. Let’s give it a try together!

SUNDAY MAY 31 (Open day)

7:30 Connected to the KOSHAS / The koshas are the layers of the human being according to vedantic philosophy.
During a two hour practice, we’ll explore this sheaths. From the outermost all the way into the bliss of the soul, there
