About the Event
Andrew will share his experience of yoga imparting the ancient core of Indian philosophy and practice in contemporary terms. The internal techniques of yoga will be explored and taught carefully as they share the Pranayama system of Sri BNS Iyengar and explain the foundational methods for moving beyond Asana practice into concentration and self inquiry.
Whether you are an experienced practitioner of yoga or new to yoga, this retreat is an opportunity to take some time for yourself to recharge and heal your body in a beautiful place!
Mornings 8:30 to 11:00am Therapeutic Movements and Concentrated Asana Practice
Starting from wherever your practice is at currently we will assist you in taking the next steps to deepen, understand and evolve your yoga practice. We begin with postural analysis and a half hour of individualized therapeutic exercises and self massage to release tension as well as activate and strengthen the weaker muscles groups in our bodies. Then we will proceed with Asana practice in the Ashtanga Vinyasa method taught with compassion and respect for each individual.
Afternoons 16:00 to 18:00 Mudra, Pranayama, Philosophy, Chanting and Meditation
