JULY 29 – AUGUST 5
RITIRO DI BHAKTI, VINYASA E YIN YOGA
RITIRO DI BHAKTI, VINYASA E YIN YOGA con Prema Mayi, Marco Migliavacca e Giovanna De Paulis
Tra le rigogliose campagne del Salento e poco distanti dalle più belle spiagge di questa terra, sorge Yoga in Salento, un luogo di quiete dove trovare ristoro tra gli ulivi, nutrirsi dei frutti della terra che crescono tutt’intorno alla masseria e dedicarsi alla pratica dello yoga. Un’intera settimana per immergersi nella natura, rallentate i ritmi della vita quotidiana, staccare la spina dalla città e dedicare del tempo ad ascoltare e a ricevere.
Le giornate inizieranno con un puja e una meditazione per poi muoversi attraverso il respiro nella pratica delle asana per risvegliare il corpo esplorarne i confini e mantenerlo in equilibrio. Al tramonto e alla sera torneremo alla pratica del vinyasa krama e dello yin yoga con Marco e Giovanna. Prema ci condurrà nel cammino del bhakti yoga, un viaggio verso le qualità che risiedono nel nostro cuore, attraverso mantra e Kirtan. Una vacanza yoga dedicata a chiunque desideri ritrovare la connessione con se stesso, con la natura circostante e immergersi nella pratica dello yoga ma anche nelle spiagge più belle della Puglia.
