Full Description

An invitation to the Iyengar Yoga Seminar from 26th to 21st of January 2016 led by Paolo Rava Intermediate Junior II and Lya Saaek Introductory II.

Paolo and Lya certified IYENGAR ® Yoga teachers will lead the participants through the learning and practice of asanas during the daily yoga sessions and Paolo, a very experienced skier, will lead the ski tours and easy hikes on the snow in the surrounding mountains, which are among the most beautiful, isolated, and wild in the Alps.
The workshop embodies how yoga complements activities in the nature, by creating a spiritual and physical mood conducive to them in a non-competitive way. The silent observation of the nature on the hikes is a natural continuation of the listening inwardly during the yoga practice.

The first lesson will be on 27th December morning, the last lesson on 1st January morning. Lessons are bilingual in Italian/English and will be given in two levels: beginners and intermediates.

Hiking, skiing – time free.
17:30 - 20:00 yoga

Accommodation is in rooms with several beds in the Hostel La Batise.
The total cost of the course is 460 Euro; this includes all lessons, accommodation, breakfasts, dinners and optional excursions. Cooking will be integral Mediterranean vegetarian.
