Our week long program consists of 6 morning practices and 3 rich afternoon workshops. Each morning will start with a short guided meditation to connect to the three dimensional breath and then to the breaths directional flow through the spine. You will be introduced to the “Sanskrit Counted Method” of Ashtanga Vinyasa and either counted through a practice or guided and assisted through a “Counted Self-practice”

Julia & John will share a variety of techniques that quickly transform the individual learning so that each practitioner connects with their own inner Guru.

Afternoons will focus on opening the power of enquiry/curiosity to dive deeper into the exploration of Yoga Philosophy, the Breath of Life and the transformational power of Sound.

Evenings are for ritual of deep heart connections: sharing yummy food, gathering around the fire, drinking cacao & sharing, singing and dancing together.
