I am delighted to return to Shambala for the third time to teach another retreat in this beautiful community and location, a former forestry school on the edge of a lake deep in the heart of the forest.
This six-day retreat is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the study of classical yoga under the guidance of an experienced and dedicated teacher.
There will be a maximum of 15 people on this retreat giving you a boutique experience with the opportunity for personal attention to work on different aspects of your practice.
The morning sessions will be a grounding practice, including detailed pranayama and breath work, specifically looking at how the breath can be incorporated into asana practice for a more embodied experience.
The evening sessions will be workshops working sequentially through standing postures, twists, forward folds, and seated poses, backbends, inversions and finally long held restorative postures utilizing props.
In addition to the yoga sessions, you can choose to be as active or relaxed as you wish. There are two saunas for use in the evenings, the lake is delightful for swimming, there are rowing boats free of charge and an art studio and library.
Available treatments include craniosacral therapy and deep tissue massage.
One evening will include a Kirtan (devotional chanting) session.
