In an atmosphere, which facilitates turning towards your inner self, join us to learn or improve your practice of Ashtanga Yoga (hyperlink) (Yoga Korunta), transmitted by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.

A retreat in India, cradle of religions and philosophy with its 5000 years of history, is to come back to the origins Yoga. During the 2nd century BCE, Patanjali codified the love of wisdom (the philosophy of yoga) by writing the Yoga Sutra (Yogasutra), a sort of synthesis of the previous theories

During your retreat in India you will be able to immerse yourself in the only country where sacred is inseparable from every moment of daily life, offering a unique experience. South India, the ancestral land of the Dravidians, is the part of the Subcontinent where Hindu civilisation has its deepest roots. Daily life has kept its charm; through centuries the temples built on the rocks on the shores of Mahabalipuram have resisted the battering of the sea and time.

Harmony of the session

We will implement together to learn or deepen Yoga Mālā, the garland of postures according to the teaching of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.

Recommended for people who do not have time to practice every day.

You will have more time to go deeper into your practice, which at the same time will help you develop a better listening, understanding and knowledge of yourself, and your self-integration.

In accordance with your abilities you will practice the first, second or third series.

During classes, the teacher will give you individual attention, detailed instructions and adjust you personally when necessary.

This retreat is open to all, beginners, intermediates, advanced and teachers. If you are a beginner, you will be initiated to the fundamentals of Ashtanga, if you are advanced, you will improve the rhythm, the Vinayasa, the Mula Bandha, Uddiyana, and Ujjavi breathing. Teachers will be able to observe how to adjust students.

Be prepared for a trip as during each session you will a visit an ashram (a secluded place in a forest or mountain where wise live in peace and tranquillity, far from the bustling world).
