You might have heard this before but once you step into a studio class full of people you could get the feeling that you misunderstood this message. The average yoga class is filled with adolescents and young adults, who all seem to know exactly what is going on and bend effortlessly into the most amazing shapes.
You did not misunderstand. Yoga is definitely for everyone and every body. It is a tool to explore your own body and to become aware. You will strengthen the connection between your body and mind, as you will learn to strengthen en deepen the relationship that you have with yourself. You will learn more about who you are and how you function and react on the mat, which will help you understand and see more clearly who you are and how you function and react off the mat as well.
But yoga is more than asana alone, it is a philosophy, and for some people even a life style. It also focusses on breathing techniques, ethics, mindfulness, meditation and ultimately on reaching a state of pure bliss. All these tools will help you to reconnect with your authentic self. You can integrate yoga into your life in many ways and find a style/ way that fits you, so that you can experience all the benefits and advantages that this practise has to offer.
In the past years we have heard many times from different people that they would love to discover more about yoga, but what generally holds them back is the fact that they feel they wouldn’t be able to fit into a general yoga class. The reasons vary, some say they feel out of place between all those young and fit students, others feel that their range of motion, mobility or energy level is just too limited to keep up with the class. Some people are insecure because they have no idea what the teacher is talking about.
Whatever your reasons are, we feel that it is a shame that you are missing out! Because we feel so passionately about yoga and all the beautiful things it has brought us and many more people around us. We decided to create a yoga retreat especially for you. A couple of days that will give you the opportunity to explore what yoga is, to enjoy delicious Italian food and to relax in the Sardinian sun.
The group will be small enough so that every one will get plenty of personal attention. You will work through some basic asana (yoga postures) and breathing exercises. You will learn how to flow through a sequence of asana and how you can connect your breath with your movement. You will learn about yoga philosophy and its origins. And you will be guided in mindfulness and meditation practise. All of these classes are optional and on a voluntary basis. The most important thing to remember in this retreat is you. How do you feel, what do you need, what do you like, where do you struggle, what stops you?
You will be staying at Su Ferreri. This original blacksmiths house is situated in a village in the middle of Sardinia where time seems to stand still. This village, Sorradile, is located on a hillside surrounded by a huge lake, vineyards, olive trees, forest, energetic rock formations and archeological sites. For more information about the house, the owners and the surroundings click HERE.
Come and join us on this beautiful journey inward and onward. Feel free to send us a message with any questions, inquiries or doubts. We are very passionate about yoga and our goal is to share this passion with all its benefits and transforming power with all that want to learn.
