About This Event

“Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame. “BKS Iyengar

At Akasha Wellness Retreat we want to help you create a profound experience of being alive. Yoga is more than just a set of postures that ask you to tie yourself into a pretzel shape and then breathe calmly. Yoga is a vehicle of discovery that helps us to know ourselves intimately. With this familiarity, we cultivate seeds of peace and joy within our hearts. We have the opportunity each time we step on the mat to reclaim our true selves and to live deeply in the world.

Apart from our physical asana practice which will be the same every morning to allow you to learn and develop your own flow which you will practice on your own by the last day. We’ll also dive into knowledge of the 8 Limbs of Yoga and how we can implement this lifestyle in daily life. Expect talks on philosophy, journaling, creative workshops, meditation techniques and more on this retreat.
