Yoga Retreat with Guest Teacher Sara Granström Thorsson

Deepen your practice through breath, chanting and gratitude

January 24 – 31, 2015

with Sara Granström Thorsson

About the Retreat

Sara Granström ThorssonFor most people the first meeting with yoga is usually a physical experience, something we move towards through our bodies. However, the traditional goal of yoga has for thousands of years been to increase people’s ability to be more present in the world through the help of a calmer mind.

To practice yoga is to observe ourselves as we are in a given moment without demands or expectations. It’s described in the yogic texts that even though consistency and regularity are important for the understanding of yoga, how we approach the different techniques on the mat will be equally important.

During this retreat we will use a great mix of yogic practices to support the process of directing our attention towards the inside rather then the outside.

The daily asana practice will be based on the Ashtangyoga Vinyasa system with focus on technique and attitude rather then completing as many poses as possible. We will use the wonders of traditional breathwork known as ”pranayama” as well as chanting and meditation to create a good and positive environment for the different kinds of challenges that comes up on the mat.

During the afternoon sessions we will explore the yogic philosophy and discuss the practice in detail, all to make the teaching as helpful and as individual as possible.

This retreat is open to all levels of practitioners.
