About This Retreat
Join Simon Low for a wonder-filled yoga start to the year. A week of yoga practice and study for body, breath and mind to revitalise the spirit of refreshment and renewal, recovery and rest, while setting supportive intentions and establishing intelligent directions for a happy and healthy year ahead, on and off the mat.
Each day will include a predominantly yang morning practice with afternoon yin and restorative yoga. Throughout the week we will share, chant, come together for meditation and benefit from study sessions to deepen your yoga knowledge and experience, especially in the fields of anatomy and physiology, psychology and philosophy.
The rest of the day allows time to enjoy the beautiful beach right in front of Samahita Retreat, the nearby temple, the numerous local beaches and attractions, and of course to benefit from the many therapies available at the Samahita wellness and detox centre.
Simon has been teaching yoga for over 20 years and has developed a unique and personal teaching style, keeping classes diverse, focused and fun. The foundations of Simon’s yoga teaching reflect his training and ongoing studies with international teachers in many approaches to yoga, movement and therapy.
Simon first trained as a yoga teacher with Dr Larry Payne at Samata in Los Angeles, in the USA, where he lived for 7 years. After a 14 year career in the music business working as first an artistes agent in London & finally as vice-president of a&r for RCA Records US in New York, Simon went on to study and explore a wide variety of physical, energetic and spiritual practices, including Iyengar yoga, Astanga Vinyasa yoga, Okido yoga and Viniyoga, Chi Kung, The Alexander Technique, Pilates, Macrobiotics, and Chinese Medicine, effectively bringing together the essential elements of these sources of wisdom and healing into his teaching today.
Simon’s ‘Yin and Yang Yoga‘ teaching is a balanced and thorough approach to yoga practice, on and off the mat, incorporating techniques that address equally the seen physical body and the unseen energetic, mental, emotional & spiritual facets of our being. He encourages the individual to remain mindfully focused towards internal exploration as a guide to experiencing yoga as it is meant to be practiced – a personal journey toward inner peace, freedom, clarity, balance and integration, and the revealing and nurturing of the True Self – your ‘essence’.
