Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga retreat
with Francesca Maniglio

July 24-31, 2021

Description of the retreat

We will venture in a self journey, allowing, recognizing what emerges, recognizing the un-necessary, letting go, disconnecting from the heavy load we carry on our shoulders daily that prevents us to just be. The over emotionalized reactivism of the conscious mind stands between the individual and the true peace and harmony he seeks, as well as creating blockages and barriers to his ability to understanding life as it unfolds. We must begin within: the awakening of your self to yourSelf. No prior yoga experience is required. All levels welcome. Awakening the body, the Re-connect to the self.

We strive for an identical goal of peace, harmony and love. The place is here, the time is now. Join us. Today.

I have prepared a unique retreat for the participating guests. We will embark on a journey within, through the ashtanga practice in the morning. The afternoon practices will include extracts and aspects of my favourite readings and deepening certain areas of yoga that I consider essential, enlightening and liberating. In our spare time, outside Agricola Samadhi, I will show you my favourite places in nature, extremely unique locations. The minimum number of participants is five. Beginners are very welcome as well as regular practitioners.
