About the Private Retreat
An immersion implies sinking entirely into a new or different environment to the one we are accustomed to. This yoga immersion should not only enable you to disconnect from daily preoccupations, but also to deepen your knowledge of yoga. It will therefore be sustained and complete.
Each day will be built in two sessions:
The morning one will be a continuous practice so that students can enjoy the benefits of tuning into themselves without being constantly interrupted. It will combine a vinyasa practice together with pranayama and meditation.
The afternoon session will be given in the form of a workshop. The focus will vary between asana (working on alignment, corrections and exploring some new or challenging postures), the fundamentals of yoga (yogic philosophy following the yoga Sūtra of Patanjali) and some basic anatomy and physiology notions.
Though the retreat is described as sustained and the vinyasa practice quite challenging at times, the focus will always be on balance, health and wellbeing. This is why Carole will keep reminding you that it is a personal experience, guiding you to listen to yourselves in order to live this retreat at your pace and get the best out of it according to your needs.

About the Teacher
On and off the mat, it is whole-heartedly that Carole surrounds people. She believes yoga can transform anyone into a better and happier person and bringing the best out of everyone is one of her goal.
In the practice of asana, she is greatly influenced by the 22 years of dancing she did, hence a very flowy and graceful practice. However, her classes are not only physically orientated as she puts a lot of emphasis on the other aspects of yoga; pranayama and meditation are an important part of her teaching and so are the ethical precepts which she keeps as her own guideline in her teaching.
