Yoga Retreat - Relax and Restore
Most of us in our busy lives need to rest more than anything, but it is often the part of the practice that we forgo because we feel we lack time. We will look at how the entire practice can and should have a restorative effect. Whether you are doing breathwork or asana/poses and vinyasas/movement with breath, the entire practice should support all the systems of the body. Learn how to soften the practice and find this subtle aspect, touching a deep sense of calm and inner peace.
Type of Event
This price includes shared accommodation and delicious and nutritious meals.
Samahita Yoga Retreats are for everyone, all ages and levels, sincerely looking to learn and build a stronger foundation for practice. For only a little extra money (compared to the Yoga Daily Program), you have a great opportunity to go deeper into the practice and put the entire practice into a larger context. It is the perfect balance between the Yoga Daily Program and one of our Centered Yoga courses. Although you have extra time with one teacher, there is still plenty of free time in the afternoons to relax, enjoy the beach and the quiet retreat environment.
Throughout the week you will be working with Elonne, building on the different yogic practices each day, so that you leave with some essential groundwork, a more profound understanding and a solid practice to take home with you. Those with a pre-existing practice will expand on their knowledge and foundation, leaving with greater clarity and a more refined practice.
Each Samahita Yoga Retreat week consists of the following:
- A full week to work with one of Centered Yoga’s experienced teachers. All of our teachers have been trained extensively by the renowned Paul Dallaghan and Tiwariji.
- Morning intention work, followed by breath work and pranayama from the Tiwariji tradition and asana/poses and vinyasa/movement with breath based on a liberal approach to the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition.
- Modifications as needed for different asanas/poses (both seated poses and training poses). We teach students to use props in order to accommodate everyone — all ages and levels of students, regardless of the limitation, are welcome and encouraged to join.
- A chance for students either to begin to learn the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, or to improve on and expand their existing practice and experience. Again, all levels are welcome.
- Restorative asana practice in the afternoon – a relaxing way to finish the day.
- Extra time in the afternoon to workshop a specific aspect of the practice, answer questions and help students come to a greater understanding of Yoga in its entirety. This extra time is invaluable, as it puts the entire practice into a larger framework.
