ASHTANGA YOGA & PRANAYAMA SADHANA IN DEPTH in the mountains of Sierra Nevada Spain, July 23-30th 2015
We are very happy to announce that Kia will give a second session of her Deepening Your Practice course in Spain! The first session is fully booked (contact Kia for details about waiting list) and the second session is already starting to fill up..! Let us know if you would like to join us in our gorgeous Spanish Shala this summer, early booking is recommended! x
For the third year in a row, we gather in the magnificent mountains of the Sierra Nevada to deepen our practice and understanding of yoga as a whole – allowing its subtleties to unfold and blossom.
We open our mornings with Ashtanga Yoga – a combination of Mysore Style classes, where you receive individual guidance and adjustments from Kia, and some led classes focused on specific aspects of Ashtanga Yoga, its principles & adjustments. 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 day trips to Granada and Almeria beach, vegetarian cookery with local chefs, hiking and, of course, hanging by the pool… It will also be possible to book one-on-one healing sessions with Myriam Quinones Pescador.
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 lovely, with plenty of antiques, books, nooks and crannies. Many rooms have fabulous views across the hills to the distant sea. The food is delicious – organic, vegetarian, locally grown. 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.
The course is open to all levels of practitioners familiar with Mysore Style self-practice.
