We are very excited to announce that for this Retreat we will have the visit of Liz Carrasquel, who will be guiding us together with Miguidet and Erik during the yoga sessions. Liz is a dedicated Ashtanga yoga teacher and practitioner, with many years of experience and who travels regularly to India, to deepen her ashtanga practice, studing with Sharath and Saraswathi in the Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. She completed a teacher training with Tim Miller, in USA. She will guide you in the Ashtanga yoga classes according to the traditional method (Mysore self-practice and led Sanskrit counted classes).
In addition we will give you guided Meditation, Chanting, Philosophy and Pranayama classes ( breathing techniques).
Massages can be booked upon arrival or during your stay.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of Yoga with poses, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time—five minutes or longer per pose is typical. It is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang. In the body the relatively stiff connective tissues ( tendons, ligaments,fascia) are yin, while the more mobile and pliable muscles and blood are yang.
Ashtanga Yoga in particular is a dynamic, structured, and intelligent approach to the practice of yoga, and is comprised of both practical and philosophical components. The practical portion has been traditionally taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in two ways; Mysore style and led class.
Hope you can join us for a unique experience of ashtanga yoga holiday and retreat in Andalucia, Spain!
