ABOUT THE YOGA
It’s no accident that this retreat starts on the day of a new moon, known as they are for their potent ‘renewing’ energy. The entire week is designed to provide you with a cocoon of time and space for remembering who you are, identifying the things you'd like to invite into your world (and the things you'd like to throw out!), and establishing a yoga practice that will support you long after the retreat has finished.
Each morning begins with an invigorating, but easily adapted vinyasa yoga practice, to warm the body and bring you into your most attentive and joyous state with you being given plenty of hands on assistance to help you develop a yoga practice that is suitable for you and your unique mind and body. Your warm and enthusiastic yoga teacher who loves to share yoga accompanied by music - these sessions promise to leave you feeling as though you’ve just danced into the day!
Afternoons will take on a more mellow and introspective feel. These restorative sessions will draw heavily on T.K.V. Desikachar’s Heart of Yoga approach, which is itself based on the teachings of Krishnamacharya, the ‘father of modern Yoga’.
During each class, you will be encouraged to focus on the breath – your ultimate teacher - and to connect every inhale and every exhale to your body’s movements. This breath-led practice will steer you through the postures in an explorative and gentle way, and gradually reveal the ideal self-practice for you. And this, in turn, will allow you to find a deep and intimate connection with yourself and your surroundings – the ideal conditions for setting new intentions, in conjunction with the new moon.
