Complete Yoga Retreat
The Complete Yoga Retreat covers all of the essential practices and philosophies of Yoga for personal development, self love, and global healing. It’s an opportunity for brand new beginners, those who want to expand their knowledge and practice of Yoga, and any Yogis or vacationers that want to enjoy a week of healthy-practice with fascinating and humorous presentations and discussions. You will be provided the inspiration and knowledge you need to awaken as a greater well-spring of love, well-being, and bliss through Yoga.
The retreat is directed by George Anthony, who has 8 years of practice experience, and spent 5 years of focused teaching in Thailand and abroad. He is assisted by his student and partner Si, who also offers translation for Thai students, shares Asana teaching, and gives amazing adjustments. Participants of all levels will find something new, challenging, and refreshing from their expertise in asana, pranayama, and explanations of yogic insights in modern living.
The asana practice can be powerful but George highlights and demonstrates the importance of being soft and fluid in a way you may not have imagined possible. It makes for a very approachable and healing practice while creating strength, finesse, and real energetic transformation.
“You, yourself, as much as anybody else in the entire universe, deserve all your love and affection.” ~Buddha
