ASHTANGA RETREAT | MYKONOS

LARUGA GLASER | 3 - 8 MAY 2019

 
 

ABOUT THE RETREAT

Laruga returns to Mykonos after two successful retreats, this time in a new special location!

Fykiada Retreats has teamed up with Rocabella Mykonos, one of the island’s finest boutique hotels, to offer an outstanding experience of wellness and Greek hospitality. A five star stay along with an award winning restaurant and a dedicated yogashala gazing the Aegean will provide all the zen needed for a dreamy island retreat. A rich schedule of ashtanga practices will be accompanied by outdoor adventures, fine dining nights and a taste of Mykonos vibrant culture and beachlife. Our tried & tested relationship with Laruga promises that you’re in good hands to let yourself go and immerse into the art of Ashtanga.

 

ABOUT THE pRACTICE

The yoga classes will be a balanced blend of Mysore practice and Ashtanga specific workshops. Mornings will be dedicated to sitting in silence as well as chanting, to then commence the Mysore practice under Laruga’s guidance. Mysore classes will be suitable for both experienced students as well as beginners. The afternoon classes will be workshops going deeper into the foundations of the Ashtanga yoga practice. In between practices Laruga will lead two yoga philosophy sessions followed by group discussion. By the end of the week, you will have a greater grounding in all aspects of the Ashtanga yoga tradition and leave the retreat refreshed, recharged, and inspired, maintaining the gift of yoga.
