Sati yoga introductory weekend

3 September - 6 September

€520
Sati Yoga Retreat

This four day yoga and meditation course is designed for students who wish to explore the connection between mindfulness (sati in the ancient language of the Buddha) and the classical eight limb system of yoga..

Each day starts with a 30 minute meditation session, followed by a 2 hour yoga class. Attention will be paid to developing and refining our breath awareness  and to applying this awareness in our asana practice. Initially working with simple postures, we learn to create a sense of spaciousness in our bodies while also working with gravity to establish strength and stability at the base of each asana. Over the course of the weekend, we explore sun salutations and various types of postures..
A delicious brunch follows the morning yoga session. On Friday and Saturday afternoons, we meet again at 5 pm for an afternoon yoga class which will include a more restorative practice and some mindfulness of  breathing and pranayama practices.  A delicious and creative vegetarian three course dinner follows.
