Barbara Leone

Yoga Pilates and Tribal Dance Retreat


Barbara Leone

19 – 26 Ottobre, 2024

Description of the retreat

Let go and reconnect with yourself, suffusing your mind and body with positivity.

Release your tensions and free your emotions to make space for new intuitions, open your heart to what makes you feel good and creates the basis for evolving positively in this life.

 Through pranayama exercises and a specific sequence of asanas, Barbara will lead you in an accessible and engaging Hatha Vinyasa Yoga practice, reconnecting you to your energy sources and helping you release your inner potential.

A complementary Pilates practice to finding “inner” and postural balance will allow you to improve strength and flexibility, feel aligned, and obtain a deeper awareness of your body. Through visualization and simple explanations on human anatomy, Barbara will provide you a safe practice in which you’ll receive tips to help you protect your joints as well as prevent and ease back pain.

Tribal Dancing will be an opportunity to practice letting go. Allow yourself to be transported through the rhythm of the percussions and experience harmony with the group and within yourself.
