VINYASA YOGA AND LATIN DANCE IMMERSION WITH MARINA & NANDO CACERES
29 June -06 July 2024
Description of the retreat
Join Marina and Nando Caceres for their 2nd international retreat this summer in Italy, June 2024. This duo will lead you through a 7-day experience on the Italian coast, in the Puglia Region at Yoga in Salento.
In exploration of untapped potential and human connection, we will discover the extraordinary power of our inner wisdom and biological intelligence stored in our body by deep listening and movement.
Marina will guide you through a series of vinyasa yoga sequencing to advance your asana practice, for the novice to the advanced student.
Learning to move with the grain of your body and breath through the cherished physical practice as well as practicing bhakti or devotional yoga, by way of mantras and storytelling, honoring yoga lineages, such as B.K.S Iyengar.
Our extended time together allows for the practical and philosophical teachings, or eight limbs of yoga, to be more sincerely explored and contemplated, beyond the traditional studio class setting.
In 4 evening, sessions Nando will revive your zest for life. Through the art of dance, specifically through the methods of Salsa and Tango, we will explore the integration of rhythm for body and mind. Through dance and body conditioning we will develop the of quality of both inner presence and presence in the physical body.
Most of all, the goal is to drop into the moment and have fun! Breaking away from our daily habits and schedules allows us to take a deeper look at our individual dharmic paths.
