A Space to Breathe

A Space to breathe

All Level ✺ 9-15 April 2023 ✺ In Sabina, Rieti, Italy

Our capacity to breathe is our capacity to feel.  It is our capacity to live in this world and be sensitive.  Our breath is our most primal connection to life.  It is through our breath that spirit moves through us. 

Join Imogen for a week of diving deep into your respiratory system, exploring each day a different part of your body’s breathing apparatus that will increase your lung capacity.   As we open up these different breath doorways in the body you will, in turn, open the pathways in the body to receive consciousness.  You will begin to understand that what you take in on your breath becomes your tissues.  You will use your breath to create spaces in your energy channels.  These energy channels acting like transformation highways as the breath gives life to a bright, free, awakened you.  

Each morning will include a deep transformational vinyasa practice interwoven with meditations, self-enquiry, myofascial release and different pranayama (breath techniques).  Each evening you can join a lunar practice which will be either yin or restorative (or a combination of the two).  There will also be plenty of down-time to pause, to rest or to enjoy the sights and sounds of the local area.

Imogen North

Imogen hails from London, England and is now based in Harpenden, Hertfordshire.  She trained initially under the expert eye of Katy Appleton and primarily teaches Yin and dynamic Vinyasa flow descended from the Krishnamacharya lineage.  

Imogen enhanced her teaching becoming one of Judith Hanson Lasater’s Relax and Renew® certified restorative yoga teachers and continues to train with her teacher Tiffany Cruikshank towards her Yoga Medicine® Therapeutic Specialist certification. 

Imogen is passionate about helping people make changes in their lives. Her teaching fuses anatomy, physiology and biomechanics with traditional Eastern yogic practices; tantra, ritual, and a deep reverence for nature.  

Imogen’s teaching honours the lineages of all of her teachers and through her teaching she hopes to inspire possibility and encourage self-awareness, awakening your authentic creativity as a yoga practitioner in the modern world. Imogen fiercely believes that yoga is for everyone, that it is a vital tradition that transcends all race and religion, fundamental in all of our lives more so now than ever before.

about the place

It doesn’t seem possible that InSabina is less than an hour’s drive from the crowded streets of Rome. With lush, abundant grounds of its own, along with a natural spring and a magnificent wooden yoga platform which overlooks the valley below, this is a truly magical place that’s ideal for spiritual practice, slowing down, and plunging oneself into nature. More

Primavera

Primavera Retreat

All Level ✺ 16-22 April 2023 ✺ In Sabina, Rieti, Italy

Frühling ist die Zeit der Entfaltung, des Neustarts und des Wiederkehrens von Licht und Energie. Es ist eine besondere Zeit um sich neu auszurichten und neue Kraft zu schöpfen.

Gemeinsam werden wir in dieser Woche diesen neuen Schwung willkommen heißen, losgelöst von den alltäglichen Herausforderungen. Umgeben von schönster Natur können wir diesen wiederkehrenden Prozess der Erneuerung erleben.

Mit Leichtigkeit und Spaß widmen wir uns der Magie der Jivamukti Yogapraxis. Zwischen den Yogaklassen gibt es viel Zeit, die Du für Dich alleine oder aufgehoben in der Gruppe verbringen kannst.  Dich erwartet eine Woche gefüllt mit besonderen Momenten und tiefer Verbundenheit. Yoga bedeutet Einheit. Verbindung. Die Praxis hilft uns dabei, mit uns selbst und mit der Natur in Kontakt zu treten. Ich freue mich mit Dir diese Beziehungen zu vertiefen und den Frühling willkommen zu heißen. Italien ist dann genau der richtige Ort dafür.

Morgens starten wir mit Meditation und Pranayama, gefolgt von einer dynamischen Jivamukti Yogaklasse. In diesen Klassen werden wir Asana üben, chanten, in die yogische Philosophie eintauchen und bei guter Musik sehr viel Spaß haben.

Am Nachmittag wird es in der Regel etwas ruhiger. Asana-fokussierte Workshops, Chanting und Restorative Yoga wechseln sich ab.

An einigen Abenden treffen wir uns zum Satsang:  zum Austausch oder einfach zum Zusammensein.

Philippa Heyden (Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher)

Anfang 2015 absolvierte Philippa das Teacher Training in Radhanath Swamis magischem Govardhan Eco Village in Indien mit ihren Lehrern Sharon Gannon, David Life, Lady Ruth und Jules Febre unter ihrem Mentor Yogeswari.

Was sie am Jivamukti Yoga begeistert, ist die Kombination aus intensiver Asana-Praxis, Meditation, Gesang, verschiedenen Musikstilen, Pranayama, Bewusstheit und Wahrnehmung der direkten und indirekten Umwelt.

The Journey Home

The Journey Home

All Level ✺ 14-20 April 2023 ✺ La Viñuela Andalusia, Spain

One of Yoga’s greatest promises is to move us towards an experience of life that is infused with lasting fulfilment, ultimate freedom and a joy that is untouched by external circumstance. We taste the essence of that place by coming to understand the nature of our mind, its tendencies, and how we may best use its potential in service to our growth.

This retreat is an opportunity to dive a litter deeper, in an embodied way, where the teachings can begin to reveal themselves to you, through the direct experience of your own practice. Together we’ll explore traditional source wisdom, alongside the practices that help breathe life into all of it in a way that feels meaningful to you.

Mornings will comprise of a complete practice (asana, pranayama & meditation) that weave Yogic philosophy/ understanding into the fabric of the experience. The afternoons will alternate between restorative practices that help us to balance & regulate the nervous system, inviting deep rest into the cells of the body (Yoga Nidra, Meditation etc) and, or workshops that provide an opportunity to further unpack Yoga’s essential teachings.

Journalling and self enquiry will play a large role in our experience together, as a means to spark greater clarity, growth and transformation.

Restoring Rhythms

Restoring Rythms

All Level ✺ 8-14 April ✺ La Viñuela, Andalusia, Spain

Yoga & Ayurveda place great importance on our understanding of the connection/ union between that which is taking place inside of us, and that which takes place outside of us. From the rhythms & polarities of day and night, to the changes of the seasons, to our sleep/ wake cycles and much, much more.How is it that we may learn to live in greater harmony and balance, by coming to both observe, and then better understand, the cycles within and without?

This retreat is an opportunity to dive a little deeper into the wisdom bodies of Yoga & Ayurveda, bringing together these two sister sciences by way of empowering your understanding of practice, and most especially, your experience of Self and life. Together we’ll explore traditional source wisdom, alongside the practices that help you to breathe life into that wisdom, in a way that feels both meaningful and effective for you.

Mornings will consist of a complete practice (asana, pranayama and meditation) weaving yogic philosophy/ understanding through the fabric of your experience. The afternoons will alternate between workshops, as an opportunity to further unpack some of Yoga & Ayurveda’s essential teachings; and, or restorative practices that help to balance and regulate the nervous system, inviting deep rest into the cells of the body, and marking that all important transition from the activity of the day, into the restful nurturance of night.

Journalling and self enquiry will play a large role in helping to spark deeper change, growth and transformation, as you come back step-by-step to a way of being that feels more nourishing and true to you. Experience some of the tools/ means that will support you in building the emotional, mental and physical resilience to meet with the totality of your life ~ in all of its sweetness, and all of its challenge, and every aspect of its unknowing
