Podcast – Preamble – 5 Essential Ingredients

Yoga Sutra 1.20 (my mistake, in the Podcast I said 1.2, it’s One point Twenty sorry for the confusion) Patanjali states 5 essential ingredients to a spiritual practice;

  • Shraddha – Faith/Trust, 
  • Virya – Courage/Will-Power, 
  • Smriti – Memory, 
  • Samadhi – Absorption, 
  • Prajna – Illuminated Mind/Discernment. 

This practice will guide you to create insight to what these concepts mean to you, how you can refine your relationship with them and be inspired to take these qualities of character off your mat and into your daily life.

Azaren Luxury Yoga-Cycling-Hiking Retreat 23-28th March 2020

We had so much fun last two years on our Cycle-Yoga-Hiking holiday we are back again March 2020 to bring you even more adventure and surprises.  Azaren is an incredible base for all of our activities and the Yoga-Cycle warm up in the morning and Yoga-Cycle-unravel in the afternoon is nourishing and invigorating. Located at the base of the Atlas Mountains, Azaren is perfect for breathtaking views, challenging bike terrain and awe-inspiring hikes. With all this activity, you might just work up an appetite.  The menu is always delicious, healthy cooking. The chef uses vegetables from the garden, traditional bread baked daily in an outdoor red clay, wood-fired oven. The food is fresh and Moroccan-authentic with a wide variety of vegetarian dishes (and meat for those who need a bit of protein cycling everyday) prepared daily. Dietaty requirements are catered for. Your retreat won’t be all eating and activity though, Azaren is well-equipped with all the amenities one would expect for luxurious relaxation as well. Tennis courts, hammam, massages, manicured gardens, (discreet) outdoor showers, and all the fresh mint you can pick for your Mojito by the pool. There will be plenty of time to rest and relax in the warm Moroccan sun.

Podcast – Practice – Shoulder Focus

A bit of anatomy and physiology this week. This practice will offer you a deeper experience of the biomechanics of the shoulder girdle moving in a vinyasa practice. As well as a physical approach, Zephyr will invite you to go deeper in unraveling Vishnu Granthi, the physical/psycho/emotional holding we carry around our upper body using asana, pranayama, chanting of OM & SO HUM in practice.

Podcast – Practice – Tonglen

This traditional buddhist practice acknowledges and celebrates that we as Yogis are the holders of suffering and the quest for healing, freedom and peace can be a liberating one. This is a provocative practice. We will be breathing in someone else’s pain and suffering at the same time we will be working on our own issues. This shared suffering is something magical as once you find your rhythm, you will find the strength to be of service to those more vulnerable, those that are ill and/or trapped in a cycle of suffering. This practice opens us to generosity of spirit, connection to our humanity and love that we can share knowing we all have a basic goodness, a desire to be happy and not to suffer.

Yoga Retreat at Itha108 in Greece 4-11th July & 11-18th July, 2020

4-11th July, 2020 Availability

11-18th July, 2020 FULLY BOOKED

Itha108 is a Greek island retreat set in a place of outstanding natural beauty, providing a space specifically for peace, relaxation and practice.

Ithaca, home of Itha108, is one of the smallest in the Ionian islands that is radiating with Grecian authenticity. It’s shores play host to a long Homeric and mythical history whose many mysteries are sensed amongst animated panorama and secretive coves. Itha108 overlooks the sea and the eastern coastline of neighbouring Kefalonia from an elevated wilderness of olive trees and exposed rocks that provide the elements around which it is built, allowing its natural beauty to speak for itself. An emphasis on indoor-outdoor living ensures full use of the land and its treasures that extend to sweeping and hidden beaches below.
