Description

This retreat is an overview of all that yoga has to offer. It can be considered a crash course for the beginner or curious new comer or also an opportunity to develop depth for the seasoned practitioner.

We have two daily practices, morning and evening, where asana, meditation and breath are explained slowly and thoroughly, both in moving and still sessions, giving you the perfect chance to establish a solid foundation for your future practice. We will also include assisted self practice sessions along the week to help you design your routine for when you are back home.

After breakfast we sit together in a non formal and relaxed additional gathering where we discuss our individual issues and share our experiences of how to integrate the spiritual principles that underlie the practice into our lives.

Classic retreat for old students
We have been teaching for some time now and have during this time met many students. When we had our studio we had the opportunity to take the practice a little deeper with those that we came to know over a longer period of time, similarly for those of you who have returned to our retreats and workshops. This retreat is open for those of you who have preacticed with us already and those who have at least several years of experience in both yoga and meditation, by that grace of familiarity we can dive right in and bring things a little further down the rabbit hole.
Also aimed for Yoga Teachers
We understand deeply the need for yoga teachers to retreat, both of us inhabiting that role ourselves. Us Yoga teachers struggle as much as our students, but are holding the space, and caring for other people as well, and this inevitably affects us deeply. So we really need to take a time out, retreat ourselves and digest our practice, both the teaching one and the one that happens in the privacy of our own mind and heart.
This healing retreat is designed with you in mind. We'll digest, relax and at the same time get a chance to deepen our practice, eat that wonderful, healthy food we prescribe but not always have the time to prepare. Sleep those extra hours, indulge in massage and simply enjoy being a student, being taken care of for a week...
