Integrated Yoga Practice

September 27 – October 4, 2014

with Daniel Stringer

About the Retreat

Daniel

This is an opportunity for anyone to explore yoga in more depth in a relaxing and revitalizing environment. Daniel will share his passion and enthusiasm for yoga, encouraging you to develop an integrated asana, pranayama and mediation practice and to bring yoga into your daily life.

Our morning sessions will begin with chanting and quiet meditation focused on breath, which we will develop into an introductory pranayama practice. Following this will be an expanded explorative style of asana informed by the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, building our postures from the breath, bandha and principles of alignment. We will develop a method of working our asana in a smooth, natural way. You will be encouraged to challenge yourself while respecting your limits. Daniel will be drawing on his own experience of an advanced asana practice.

During the afternoons we’ll explore the philosophical context of our yoga practices and cover any questions you may have. We’ll finish with a lighter, relaxing asana session.

You will leave feeling recharged, invigorated and well nourished. Plus it’s a chance to meet and share your experience with other yogis in a beautiful place.

About the Teacher

DanielDaniel had numerous influences leading him towards a life in yoga.  From disciplined training in judo and martial arts as a child to an introspective education in art.  Also learning Qi Gong standing meditation from a friend which he continued daily for two years. After leaving art college he discovered Astanga yoga in 2003 with Christopher Gladwell in Bristol and was immediately devoted to this challenging transformative practice. Even in the early stages, positive developments followed due to personal dedication and support from charismatic people. Practice practice and all is coming! Events unfolded and in 2006 he travelled to India to practice with Shri K. Patthabi Jois, then he moved on to Thailand to participate in the teacher training with Paul Dallaghan, a man who remains his primary teacher. Returning to Samahita every year since 2006 to continue studying asana / pranayama with Paul and O. P. Tiwari and anatomy with Neil Barker.  Daniel stayed in Thailand throughout 2007 where he met his wife.

In 2008 he began teaching full time at mYoga in Hong Kong where he currently lives and works.
