The Classes

Hatha Raja Yoga: Classic yoga practice with an extended stay in positions, breathing should be calm and position will be stable and comfortable.

Dharma / Vinyasa Yoga: The practice is based on the Shiva Namaskar Vinyasa series, developed by Master Sri Dharma Mittra. The practice combines classic asanas, challenging asanas and free Vinyasa Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation yoga), pranayama and meditation.

Satsang and Meditation: Spiritual Lessons we learn about Yogi philosophy in everyday life.

Pranayama: The classes of Pranayama & Kriya Yoga are based on ancient methods for controlling the life force, methods to cleanse the body and mind as well as meditation sessions. Explore pranayama, the practice to center your attention on the breath in different ways. Together we will experience the benefits of breathing in order to apply them in different situations of our daily life: how to use breathing to calm the nervous system and to increase the power of vital energy. You will also learn about yoga nadis (psychic channels) and the chakras (energy circuits).

    I went with Katy and Shahar on this retreat in May and it has been an amazing experience! Everything was extremely well organized, in a beautiful buddhist house in the mountains, the food was delicious and the atmospere very peaceful. The class schedule was very well balanced with rest time in between and a lot of variation in the programme, alternating meditation, breathing exercises and hatha yoga. Shahar built up the classes very well, starting light to prepare for a more profound practice lateron in the weekend, as well he threw in some very wellcoming surprises. Very much recommended for anybody that wants to take a deeper dive in their practice, whether beginner or more advanced, and have a peaceful weekend for themselves.
