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 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.More about Imogen

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.
