Description

BALANCE AND STRENGTH DAY RETREAT

This one-day workshop will include both practice and theory.

The workshop will be based on the idea that yoga refines the mind and helps to enhance physical and personal strength and balance.

On the mat: we shall explore how alignment, breathing, and movement can be practiced with increased depth and how this, in turn, can help generate strength, and how the awareness, in turn, can help generate balance in our bodies and in our minds. Poses will be held and explained in detail. Vinyasa sequences will be included to synchronize movement and breath and to transition between sustained poses.

Off the mat: some time will also be spent to reflect on how yoga can help us find strength and unclutter our minds. Participants will be encouraged to ponder on what can be taken away from the mat to be incorporated in everyday life.

On the mat and off the mat: we will reflect on how yoga helps us become aware of our bodies, of pain and discomfort, but also of ways in which we can overcome the pain and the discomfort. We will be witnesses to our selves.

About Marina

Marina is a long-time yoga practitioner, a teacher, and a graduate of Yogacampus. She first encountered Iyengar yoga whilst working as an academic in the arts. She continued practicing Hatha Yoga throughout her career as an art curator, increasingly finding connections between her professional endeavours and yoga. Thanks to her engagement in the field of art&science, Marina enjoys applying an individually focused analysis of body/mind perception and movement in space. Her current focus, through the practice of yoga, is on the acquisition of personal insights to help with life’s challenges. Her teaching incorporates elements to help with personal affirmation and conflict resolution, skills that are crucial to our inner balance and wellbeing but often overlooked in our daily lives.
