ASHTANGA YOGA RETREAT WITH LUCY CRAWFORD
29 AUGUST -5 SEPTEMBER
Description of the retreat
Lucy’s teaching is creative, intuitive and fun! She encourages people to connect to the body, slowing down to feel the sensations of movement. This somatic process informs the body for better space and protection, drawing our attention to the detail and finer elements of the practice. Connection to the breath is central to everything, binding the elements that create the alchemy of the practice itself.
Yoga is a practice. It is for anyone and everyone, enhancing and supporting our lives and our ever changing health. Yoga helps to release stress and dysfunction in the body. Lucy’s teaching is shaped by her Craniosacral work and she is sensitive and responsive to each person, using verbal and physical adjustments with an anatomical viewpoint. Yoga leaves you feeling good, healthy and balanced.
