• 21/07/2015 - 28/07/2015
    5:00 pm - 11:00 am

21st – 28th July 2015 

A week with a focus on the psychological processes that Yoga can bring up and how we can use postures, breathing and meditation to move through and help others.

The Transforming Power of Yoga

This retreat is for those who wish to deepen their practice and for Yoga teachers the week can contribute towards your CPD. You will be exploring the theme of the transforming power of yoga through:

  • Asana – the movement of energy through the chakras and how that shifts your whole consciousness
  • Mudra – how attitude shapes your whole self
  • Pranayama – noticing in which situations in life you restrain your breath and how you come back to the natural breath moving through your body
  • Meditation – focussing on the different ways of meditating to energise, calm and see things as they are – vipassana

Deposit payment is £300pp.  For full fees, please scroll down.
