Jivamukti Yoga - Depth and Grace - Rowena asana

You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state.” Sharon Gannon. Jivamukti Yoga Co-founder.


Jivamukti Yoga: Depth & Grace

1st – 8th October 2022


Description of the retreat

In a wonderful venue, in the beautiful region of Puglia, we will engage in the powerful practices of Jivamukti Yoga.

During this week long retreat we will explore the depths of an advanced yoga practice: Breath, Bandha, Drishti, Asana, and importantly – Intention.

Each morning will start with chanting, meditation & pranayama, followed by a deep & purposeful asana practice. The afternoons will alternate between workshops and satsang, to explore and discuss the physical, physiological and philosophical aspects of practice in more detail.

The asana practice is dynamic and can be challenging. Some experience of practicing vinyasa is recommended but beyond this practice is open to mixed levels of practitioners. The minimum requirement is a playful spirit.

Delicious & nutritious vegan food will be provided for brunch and dinner to support our journey in the best way.
