Yoga in Salento Italy

Illuminate Your Yoga Practice

For many of us our yoga practice is deeply important and personal to us. It can make us feel like we’re flying, and yet there are so many things that come up through the process of practice itself. It’s these processes, the things that challenge us; that can be the most profound. Wherever you are, whatever you bring, this Mysore Yoga retreat will shine a light on your practice.  It will illuminate what’s coming up for you and help you explore different ways of moving through it.

Who is this retreat for?

This retreat is for all practitioners of Ashtanga yoga to discover their own way of practicing this profound system movement, breath and philosophy. Whether you are a beginner or experienced, have injuries or particular things holding you back, Scott will draw on his 18 years of experience teaching Mysore Ashtanga Yoga and Mindfulness to shine a light on your yoga practice and help you discover something fresh…

What you will gain from the retreat:

Over the intensive you will gain insight into your own patterns of practice and how to move in your own unique way. If working with pain or injuries there will be fresh light on how to alleviate and work with these issues. We will use the wider context of anatomy, mindfulness and philosophy to see how we can notice things in a fresh way. This will also help you to see the practice of yoga in a wider context to your life.
