With Jean & Rob: Authorised Ashtanga Teachers

This retreat is fast becoming a popular regular feature of our

retreat calendar and an unique opportunity to study with Jean & Rob,

who will co teach this retreat. Both are Authorised Ashtanga Yoga

teachers, and Rob is one of the few Australians to have Level 2 Ashtanga

Yoga Authorisation. Take time to develop the more subtle aspects of

your practice in a dedicated retreat environment. Places are limited in

this course to ensure individual attention. We start Friday afternoon

and finish after breakfast on Monday. There are limited spaces and this

retreat books very quickly.

About the Teachings:

Few people have made many, many trips to Mysore to study directly under the tutelage of Sri K

Pattabhi Jois and his grandson Sharath. Jean & Rob have spent many months, over nine visits to

studying with Pattabhi Jois and Sharath. On this retreat  they will share not only the asana

practice of Ashtanga Yoga, but the spirit in which we might practice according to Jois's teachings.

This passing of knowledge from teacher to student in this way is known as parampara and on this

retreat you will have the opportunity to ask questions, refine and develop your practice in the

Ashtanga tradition. Morning sessions will include meditation and Mysore practice, evenings and

afternoons will include technique classes (eg; jumping back/through), chanting, philosophy, and

alignment classes. Jean & Rob will share their understanding of the way in which Ashtanga works

both on and off the yoga mat.

About the Accommodation:

Accommodation is at Honeyeater Ridge in Margaret River. Situated 10 minutes from Margaret River town,

Redgate Beach and on seven beautiful acres of natural bush with extensive, bird friendly native

gardens, Honeyeater Ridge includes a large mud brick house with cathedral jarrah ceilings, a

separate self-contained cottage that has extra beds, bathroom and kitchenette and a yoga studio

situated in the gardens. Wood fires inside, mosaic bird baths and meditation benches in the gardens

add to the character and ambiance of this rural property and ensure guests enjoy a sense of peace

and tranquillity. Accommodation is shared rooms and bathrooms.
