In May I will be teaching a retreat in Tuscany, Italy from 11-18 May
The retreat is at Ebbio, an 800 year-old Tuscan farmhouse which has been converted into a yoga retreat, located in the Tuscan countryside and surrounded by an evergreen forest, in the heart of an old volcano approximately 26 miles from Florence and 6 miles from Siena.
Despite being converted in to a retreat for yoga, Ebbio is still a working farm, so you will be sharing your experience with the animals on the farm. An annual harvest of grapes are used to make authentic Chianti wine that Tuscany is so well known for.
Daily Dharma yoga Master practice, Maha Sadhana, Yoga Nidra, Self Realization, Breathing and Meditation and Psychic Development techniques.
The focus of this program is to develop your asana practice and explore pranayama and meditation techniques. A challenging and physically absorbing Shiva Vinyasa Namaskar series created by Sri Dharma Mittra for Dharma I, II, III and IV. It reintegrates the flow of prana through the spinal column and emanates deep into all areas of the physical, metabolic, intuitive, and bliss bodies. It promotes harmony within all these layers so a concentrated state of radiant health is achieved. The highest crowning meditative asanas, pranayama (breathing techniques), and yoga nidra (psychic sleep), which are embedded in the deep roots of Dharma Mittra’s teachings, are imparted to the student. Pranayama uses the breath and the entire respiratory system to purify and strengthen the nerves which leads to greater control of the senses and a subsequent calmer and clearer mind, not just when sitting but throughout the day, when practiced consistently for a long time. Here is the opportunity to be introduced and grow through these techniques in a supportive environment.
The daily schedule will consist of two asana classes, pranayama and meditation. One of the daily classes will focus specifically on different areas such as hip opening, backbends, balances and inversions.
