Iyengar Yoga Retreat

    Iyengar Yoga Retreat

    with Vaya

    • November 22, 2021 - November 28, 2021

    This Iyengar Yoga Retreat provides an opportunity to open a portal to self-realization and freedom through an individualized and supportive yoga practice while attuning to nature and the beauty that surrounds the village of PachaMama. 

    The Iyengar Yoga style explores the family of asanas as they were taught by renowned teacher B.K.S Iyengar.

    Iyengar Yoga emphasizes precision in the asana, using props, accurate sequences and timings, to cultivate respect for the body and prevent physical injuries. A new quality of the practice is revealed through this unique lens – the quality of “effortless effort”.

    For many, Iyengar’s language of yoga is a gateway into the ancient art form. Its creative use of props combined with Vaya’s meditative approach to yoga allows the asana to be embodied fully and deeply transcending the limitations of physical and mental flexibility.

    Key Points of Study

    A unique meditative approach using the Asana as a laboratory to observe how we manage life through space and time, the here and now, to align and to know oneself. Cooperation between the mind and body is the goal. 

    This Iyengar Yoga Intensive will create a container by way of daily practice including:

    • Asanas
    • Pranayama
    • Restorative yoga
    • Indoor and Outdoor (beach and river) Meditations


    This work is a deep dive into the core of one’s being, exploring all of the following bodies of work: 

    • Physical
    • Physiological
    • Emotional 
    • Breath 
    • Bliss  

    Through the practice of decoding, rewiring, synchronizing, and healing, this is a journey from the “self” – by oneself – to “selflessness”.

    This awareness work is a great tool to be the “observer”. Observing one’s action, non-action, and re-action facilitates the ability to learn and understand oneself on a deeper level allowing the oneness into the place beyond space and time.
