Pranayama & Ashtanga Yoga Primary and Intermediate Series Workshop with Kia in STOCKHOLM / Feb 13-16 2015
Away from big city life, in the magnificent mountains of the Sierra Nevada we can deepen our practice and understanding of yoga as a whole, and re-discover the natural integration of Body, Breath and Mind.
Mornings begin Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Style, where you receive individual guidance and adjustments from Kia. Afternoon sessions are dedicated to the philosophy and practice of Pranayama, the ancient yogic breathing techniques. Kia will offer her experience and guidance as we allow space for a daily practice of Ashtanga Yoga, Pranayama and Kriyas (yogic purification techniques) as well as Sitting and Mantra-recitation. Integrating all aspects will take your practice to the next level of awareness, allowing its subtleties to unfold and blossom. Alongside the yoga practice there will be other optional activities including vegetarian cookery with our local chefs, visiting the olive mill, hiking and, of course, hanging by the pool or enjoying a massage from Agathe Philbé & Maura Mulvaney…
Run by the lovely Brittish couple David & Emma Illsey, Las Chimeneas is a truly authentic and unique pearl, located in one of the most beautiful and energetically powerful spots in all of Europe. The accommodation is very comfortable, with plenty of antiques, books, nooks and crannies. Most rooms have fabulous views across the hills to the distant sea. The food is delicious – organic, vegetarian, locally grown – and is enjoyed in our delightful dining room. Yoga classes are held in the outdoor shala which nestles in olive groves, overlooking the mountains. This is a magical place to retreat, re-charge and give yourself space to deepen your practice.
