Ashtanga Yoga Retreat
Montefiore dell Aso | Italy
August 31 to September 7, 2013
with Andrea Lutz
One week intensive yoga practice in a stunningly beautiful spot in Italy. The retreat place is 12 km away from the sea and 10 minutes by foot from the charming medieval town Montefiore dell'Aso. From the retreat venue we enjoy the view to the Adriatic Sea and the mountain chain of Monti Sibillini. We offer the retreat in cooperation with YogaItalia.
Our focus will be on traditional Ashtanga Yoga classes in Mysore style in the mornings. Andrea will give each student individual attention and support in their practice. In the afternoons there will be a second practice with more focus on the techniques of Ashtanga Yoga and the "inner work" like breath and bandhas, regenerative yoga (Yin Yoga) postures to relax and balance the intense practice and there will be talks about Yoga Theory and Philosophy.
All levels of students are welcome to join the retreat. The Mysore style teaching allows us to work with each student individually and to give personal assistance and guidance for beginners and advanced students alike.
In between yoga classes you will have enough time to explore the area, to relax and to swim in the sea-water pool or in the sea.
