Yoga & Meditation
Reconnect your Heart and your Mind
“Take care of this moment” Gandhi
Start your day with our early morning yoga class. The main style of yoga taught on this retreat is Ashtanga Vinyasa flow which is known as an eight-limbed path of conscious living and is an incredibly spiritual practice that cleanses and purifies the body. Pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation will be part of our morning practice where you will experience rest, renewal and invigoration.
Our morning sessions will include Mysore classes and guided Primary series classes, all levels of experience are warmly welcomed. Ashtanga Yoga can be modified and softened to accommodate everyone, regardless of body type, age or ability. We look forward to to wholeheartedly sharing our knowledge and experience with you in a sacred space that will help you deepen your practice and facilitate your healing journey.
All you need is a smile, an open mind and a positive attitude.
Yin Yoga will also be part of our program. Yin Yoga brings the perfect balance to the more yang flowing morning class. By having a Yin and a Yang yoga practice, you are creating a beautiful balance to your energy. Yin Yoga is designed to restore tired muscles. Holding poses for longer releases and stretches the connective tissues and the fascia throughout the body.
Meditation will be held in the evenings, thus allowing you to clear your mind, relax and turn your focus inwards. Meditation (dhyana) requires a still and one-pointed state of consciousness, an inner focus where you are fully awake while allowing the mind to rest in silence.
As you learn to be still you can begin to examine all aspects of yourself and your true nature. As you calm your mind by focusing on meditation techniques you remain fully alert but are no longer distracted by the external world around you, from this space you can go beyond your mind and experience joy and inner peace as you connect with the deeper levels of your consciousness.
We believe meditation to be very therapeutic and a healthy practical way to calm yourself, to see clearly, and to connect to your inner voice. Sitting in meditation every evening will also prepare you for a peaceful, deep and restful sleep, closing the day off perfectly,
Live, Breath & Let go
“You should not be practicing to have a ‘good’ practice, but instead to keep steadiness within yourself. Practice happily regardless of whether it is ‘good’ or not. Sometimes some postures will not be possible, but when you accept the good and the bad and everything becomes equal for you, that is yoga.”
