The focus, of course, is yoga – on and off the mat – to enhance your appreciation of all that is around you. Two yoga classes a day in the exquisite yoga shala overlooking the sea. This is and opportunity for each student to practice at his/her own level making the week suitable for students of different abilities. Have a yoga adventure in the mystical land of its birth and get to the spiritual heart of the practice.
Start your day with basic pranayama and meditation, followed by a slow, mindful Vinyasa Flow class. Study BKS Iyengar technique and alignment principles (acts of Dharana) in the afternoon ‘Yoga Clinic.’ Restorative yoga is used as a healing/transformational tool to move through fear and release hardness in the body, experience deep inner peace and insight, and learn to be at ease in the present moment.
Heather is skilled at reading ‘individual’ bodies and knows how to help each student to have good alignment, strength and flexibility, and peace in an asana. This retreat is designed to help you improve your practice technically, so you can avoid injury and recover from imbalances. Yoga philosophy and Ancient wisdom traditions are infused into the teachings in a way that diminishes suffering in our lives. It’s a deep practice that moves beyond the physical experience to make the yogic inquiry authentic and relevant to real life.

Beginners are welcome as long as you have some yoga experience, are relatively fit and willing to try. Afternoons are free for sightseeing, swimming in the sea or pool, relaxation and massage.
