Connect deeply with your body in this beautiful spot of the Mexican Pacific coast. The main focus of this retreat is to delve into the anatomical structures in relation with yoga asana. Throughout our sessions we will focus on different parts of the body, always from the softness, curiosity and awareness.
This retreat is ideal for beginners of yoga, and for intermediate / advanced who wish to deepen their bodily consciousness while enjoying an unrivaled connection with nature.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
– How to correctly align the main postures of Hatha Yoga. We will see a topic every day: Column, shoulders, hips, vagus nerve, breathing and balance in the feet.
– How to handle the breath (Prana) during the postures to enhance its benefits.
– How to adapt and adjust each posture according to your body and your personal needs.
– Why is it important to learn the correct alignment in your yoga practice?
– Decrease the chances of injury and increase the benefits of asana by allowing the energy to flow into the postures.
I love anatomy, soul consciousness through the body: where everything is connected.
I was born in Spain and after living 6 years in London I came to live in the amazing Mexican Pacific oast.
Certified teacher by Sostice Yoga Center (RYS 200 Yoga Alliance) with whom I collaborated for more than a decade, being also part of the Teacher Training team.
I love learning and sharing. I find inspiration in Hatha yoga with special attention in the alignment, in the therapeutic aspect and body consciousness.
My studies are based on the search for the path of healing from a holistic and natural perspective.
I have trained Spanish teachers in the use of BackMitra: a tool specially designed for anyone suffering from back pain or problems resulting from poor postural hygiene.
My classes have an important theoretical base bathed with a good dose of humor and “chocolate spirit” (pure joy).
We will stay at La Loma Linda Hotel, at Zipolite beach.
