For Ashtanga practitioners, sometimes the most difficult if not dreaded part of the practice is sitting still. Yet taking time to cultivate finishing postures, pranayama forms, as well as meditation practice can enliven and bring new depth to the daily asana practice.
In this ten-day retreat, Step by Step: Balancing, Reframing, Opening, and Letting Go, we will focus on the balancing combination of asana, meditation, and breathing practices. Each day we will sit, practice Mysore style, chant, explore postures in depth in guided sessions, and work with the philosophical underpinnings of the elements of compassion and the nature of the mind and the body.
A number of days will be spent in meditative silence to allow the practices to assimilate and take root. What better place to experiment with silence than in the supportive environment of the ocean and nature? This retreat is appropriate for beginning and seasoned meditation practitioners alike.
This retreat will take place in Samahita (Koh Samui, Thailand) from October 14 to 24, 2018. Please follow this link to save your spot today!
