About the Retreat


most people the first meeting with yoga is usually a physical

experience, something we move towards through our bodies. However, the

traditional goal of yoga has for thousands of years been to increase

people’s ability to be more present in the world through the help of a

calmer mind.

To practice yoga is to observe ourselves as we are in a given moment

without demands or expectations. It’s described in the yogic texts that

even though consistency and regularity are important for the

understanding of yoga, how we approach the different techniques on the

mat will be equally important.

During this retreat we will use a great mix of yogic practices to

support the process of directing our attention towards the inside rather

then the outside.

The daily asana practice will be based on the Ashtangyoga Vinyasa

system with focus on technique and attitude rather then completing as

many poses as possible. We will use the wonders of traditional

breathwork known as ”pranayama” as well as chanting and meditation to

create a good and positive environment for the different kinds of

challenges that comes up on the mat.

During the afternoon sessions we will explore the yogic philosophy

and discuss the practice in detail, all to make the teaching as helpful

and as individual as possible.

This retreat is open to all levels of practitioners.
