Freedom of the Heart

All Level ✺ 30 May- 5 June 2023 ✺ The Relais, Sorrento, Italy

Alignment is internal work, meaning what matters most is that we live from the truth that speaks to us through our spiritual hearts.

When we initially came to the practice the shifts we felt may have been primarily physical, but as we increase the frequency and the dimension of our practice we begin to sense something deeper is calling to us. Yogic practices provide us with tools for introspection. And with this we’re able to recognise our truth, and take action from a place of inner alignment. This does not have to look like a radical external change, you don’t have to leave the modern world and go and live in an ashram, you can live from this place of deep alignment right there where you are – and this is the most radical realisation.  

During this week long retreat we will create space to learn, grow and deepen our connection to practice. So that you can return to your life feeling nourished and refreshed, ready for all that is coming. 

Each morning will start with chanting, meditation & pranayama, followed by a deep & purposeful asana practice. The afternoons will be a mixture of workshops designed to explore specific aspects of the practice in more detail.
