November 25-27, 2016 workshop Singapore, Singapore
Instructor: Eddy & Mary
Details:
Schedule:
Friday:
6:30-8:30 PM Pranayama - Have you ever wondered how to take effortless, deeper inhalations? Learn this simple but elegant method from Geetaji's 2015 Yoganusasanum teachings that will keep you passive, observant yet filled. Other reinforcing and augmenting methods from over the years will also be shown.

Saturday:
9 AM-12 PM Standing Poses - Learn to integrate the major limbs of the body into a unified whole for an experience of firmness, lightness and evenness of body & mind. Standing poses give us a great opportunity to understand how an asana should feel in general so that we can carry that understanding forward to all the other asanas. Key concepts from Geetaji's 2015 Yoganusasanum teachings will be explored.

1-4 PM Twists - Forward Extensions - Finding the freedom in forward extensions. Too often we try to bend forward from the wrong place and so progress can be slow. Where to bend forward from is often surprising to people. Come learn the easier way to bend forward.

Sunday:
9 AM-12 PM Back Extensions - When you practice asanas do you just do them or do you find out in which way they get done for you? Learn how to use the secret force that makes the poses first effort-less and then effortless.

1-4 PM Twists - Do your twists just revolve or do they evolve? Finding where to work from in twists makes them so much easier, rewarding and evolved. Come learn the exact places to trigger the poses from their potential to their realized state.

Italian Yoga Vacation Schedule
Friday:
     6-8 AM
Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday:
     8:30-11 AM asana
     6-8 PM restorative asana & pranayama

The Place:
Set high above the Mediterranean, Ravello is the crown jewel of the Amalfi coast. Enjoy spectacular views, beautiful strolls & delicious dining in this peaceful hideaway. Vehicles park outside the town leaving the winding cobblestone lanes, charming piazzas and cafes free to be enjoyed in peace & quiet. Walkers will appreciate the famously beautiful garden paths of Villa Cimbrone and the "Walk of the Gods." With fine arts and crafts, cultural tours and some of the best pizza we've had in Italy, Ravello is magical mixture of serenity, beauty, culture and nourishment... and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See our Yoga Vacations page for photos

The Yoga:
Wake up, do yoga in the morning and still have time to enjoy the day. Relax in the evenings with a specially tailored restorative class. Two senior teachers for the price of one! Mary & Eddy will co-teach each class so you will get plenty of attention.

Fees:      $495

Activities:
Whether activity or lounging is your preferred vacation mode, Ravello has something for everyone:
  • breathtaking views
  • "Walk of the Gods"
  • quiet walks
  • Valle delle Ferriere
  • great restaurants
  • Pompeii
  • Villa Cimbrone gardens
  • Herculaneum
  • Villa Rufolo
  • Paestum
  • cultural tours
  • ferry to Capri
  • cooking classes

    Accommodations:
    We've negotiated a discounted rate for our group at 2 hotels. Hotel Bonadies is a 4 star hotel and offers a 5% and 7% discount for 5 and 7 nights respectively. Hotel Parsifal is a 3 star hotel and offers a 10% discount. These two hotels are the closest to Piazza Fontana Moresca on the North side of Ravello where the yoga classes are held. Use the code "Yoga2017" to receive the discount. However, Ravello is such a walkable hill town that just about any place in Ravello proper will do if you don't mind a 15 minute or less walk.

         Hotel Bonadies
         Hotel Parsifal
