Have you been practicing yoga on a regular basis for a while? Are you eager to dive deeper into the physical practice and learn more about the philosophy?
In this advanced yoga retreat we will flow our practice to inspiring music during the daily dynamic morning classes. The focus will be on building a strong connection between breath and movement, which prepares the body and mind to try the more complex yoga poses. Think of various arm balances, deep hip and heart openers and more sophisticated standing balancing sequences.
In the afternoon we will explore inversions and advanced poses in a series of workshops where you can learn how to move into a pose step-by-step, ask questions and help each other to come into a pose by giving and receiving support. All of this may inspire you to even try that pose that you never imagined possible for yourself!
Other afternoon sessions involve Q & A and conversations about yoga philosophy and Hindu mythology. What do those principles mean to us and how can we translate them into something practical and relevant for us in our daily lives?
We will also chant mantras on beautiful melodies and discuss the meanings of those mantras.
This week provides the perfect circumstances for you to focus on your yoga practice, allowing you to take it to the next level.
About the instructor
FLEUR Since childhood music and movement have been Fleur’s major passions. No surprise she became a professional dancer. She enjoyed the excitement that came with this career, but after a while she was looking for a way to counterbalance a somewhat hectic lifestyle.
When travelling to India, Fleur discovered yoga. Amazed by the calming effect it had on her mind she was inspired to pursue a new path. Thus, she followed teacher trainings in India, Amsterdam and New York and began sharing her enthusiasm as a yoga teacher.
Fleur takes her qualities as a dancer into her yoga classes by guiding you through the yoga poses like a dance and giving clear instructions on how to practice the poses in a safe way. With her enthusiasm and light energy Fleur creates an atmosphere that invites you to practice in a most playful way.
