Yoga is a holistic practice that brings awareness to the body and mind. With the practice of Yoga Asana, you could break free from the limitations that keep you from attaining unconditional peace and fulfilment.
This one-on-one retreat is designed for those are sincere to their practice, and choose to deepen their practice. This will give you an opportunity to build a strong, personal connection to yoga, to suit your unique self.
Angela will facilitate 3 individual sessions on Iyengar Yoga, named after BKS Iyengar who developed this form of yoga. It is based on the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali and follows a structured timing, sequence and technique. It works to reach every system of the body, and bringing them in sync with one another.
BKS Iyengar was also one of the first masters to use props and supports in yoga, to assist people who could not completely perform the asanas. Iyengar believed in making yoga accessible to all, as it is a science for humanity.
You may choose to do this retreat alone, with one-on-one attention that will give you the chance to explore all aspects of the Iyengar form, as well as focus on your own personal growth.
You could also choose to participate with a partner, and discover new means of engaging with each other on a journey towards spiritual awareness.
The retreat will help you develop discipline, awareness and peacefulness, which will carry on into your everyday life and allow you to build stronger relationships and work with positive dedication.
