JULY 6 – 13, 2019
DYNAMIC YOGA retreat
WITH JULIA AND KNUT RAKUS
Feelgood in Salento, a week with Julie & Knut, Feelgoodstudio Vienna
At first, we will salute the sun descending over Salento, stretch mind, body and breath after the journey to get here and then settle into a practice helping you to arrive in beautiful Agricola Samadhi. The practice will be gentle and rewarding, preparing you for the days to come.
In the morning sessions we go through a sequence of asanas gently increasing pace, depth and smiles throughout the week. There will be options and variations so that each practitioner can adjust the practice to his needs. Knowing and accepting that these needs are different every day makes every student his very own teacher. The classes will model Knut`s ongoing classes in Vienna and will allow the student to grow and develop her/his practice in the course of our seven mornings together.
Julie In her classes will cover a wide range of topics, teachings and practices. These will include breathing and meditation practices, inputs on both philosophy and anatomy in a yogic context as well as an evening of ecstatic dance.
Julie will touch on her experience as an avid yoga student as well as working as MD focusing on obstetrics, gynecology, emergency care as well as traditional medicines (mainly Traditional Chinese Medicine).
