For Ashtanga practitioners sometimes the most difficult if not dreaded part of the practice is sitting still. Yet taking time to cultivate finishing postures, pranayama forms as well as meditation practice can enliven and bring a whole new depth to our daily asana practice. In this 10 day retreat we will focus on the balancing combination of asana, meditation and breathing practices. Each day we will sit, practice Mysore style, chant, explore postures in depth in guided sessions and work with the philosophical underpinnings of the elements of compassion and an understanding of the nature of the mind and the body.
A number of days will be spent in meditative silence to allow the practices to be assimilated and take root. What better place to experiment with silence than in the supportive environment of the ocean and nature that is part of the Samahita experience. The retreat is appropriate for beginning and seasoned meditation practitioners alike.
The program begins at 5pm on the first day of the retreat with a group welcome and departure is at 12pm on the last day. The schedule is subject to change at the discretion of the teacher.
