Dive into the heart and soul of the Ashtanga yoga practice under the inspiring guidance of Laruga Glaser and team of highly qualified assistants. The two week course will be a complete and comprehensive program offering foundational grounding for new students as well as progressive techniques for experienced practitioners. Our goal is for beginner students as well as experiencedpractitioners to benefit from the retreat, ultimately guiding each practitioner into the heart of their potential. In this regard, the retreat program is designed to harness the full capacity of each guest no matter what level.
Each morning will be devoted to Mysore practice, except for Led class on designated days, beginning with seated meditation and silence. Beginner students will be well taken care of especially in the early stages of the retreat to garner greater confidence to be self led under the guidance of the teacher. For experienced students, all will receive full support in helping strengthen and deepen their existing practice while working through challenging aspects of the sequences.
The majority of afternoon workshops will be split into two groups to give more attention to the various experience levels. Level One will be for beginners up to Primary Series practitioners and Level Two will be for those who have started Intermediate Series and/or above.
There will also be additional classes such as Mindfulness and Meditation class after dinner for those interested in establishing a seated meditation practice or to learn new techniques for an already existing sitting practice. In addition, there will be a few strength and conditioning classes added to the schedule to learn greater body awareness, agility and fortitude.
We aspire to create an environment that feels supportive through every step of the way garnering a greater sense of renewal, growth and expansion within the two week program.
