Iyengar Yoga Retreat
Carolyn Christie & Marcela Clavijo
August 27 - 30, 2015
Menla Mountain Retreat Center
Come join Carolyn and Marcela for a four day retreat, near the town of Phoenicia upstate New York. The retreat center is in a magical mountain valley where guests can enjoy deep serenity, nature and abundant wildlife. The retreat will include meditation, pranayama, asana practice and discussions on Buddhist Dharma.
We will practice yoga asana and pranayama, which will take us to a place of relaxed inner stillness, a natural calm awareness. The Iyengar yoga method teaches us to extend awareness to each part of the body and begin to explore the limitless potential of the unobstructed union of mind, body, and breath. We will continue this exploration in sitting meditation sessions.
Iyengar yoga is known for its focus on alignment, adaptability, and developing strength, flexibility, and stamina. At times we use props to perform the asanas more easily and fully. This allows us to perceive and access the inner workings of each asana, which can help liberate us from physical, mental, and emotional limitations. The props enable students to receive the full benefit of the asanas with minimal risk of injury or strain.
All levels of practitioners are welcome.
