SPACE: Wild Yin Yang Yoga Retreat
Ashiyana is a welcoming, stylish and comfortable retreat space nestled within Alto on the edge of the Amazon. Already renowned in Goa, Ashiyana Brazil offers delicious, wholesome food, luxury spa treatments and that fine balance between wilderness and homeliness.
The retreat is surrounded by fresh water rivers, some 200 waterfalls, thermal springs, and the largest crystalline bedrock on earth. Immersed in abundant nature and located by the entrance to the Chapada Dos Veadeiros National Park (Unesco World Heritage site), Ashiyana is a unique destination and the perfect place to deepen your practice and let go for a while.
8am – 10am: Vinyasa Yoga
Just after sunrise we will meet for a 2-hour Vinyasa workshop, where we shall explore different postures and how to move organically between each one with the breath. Diving into a daily yoga journey through a strong practice helps create a foundation for developing your discipline, and a greater expression of self-love. The essence, principles, and magic of this yoga practice will help you explore and experience asana to its depth, as together we will journey beyond mere physical sensation and into more spiritual realms.
4pm – 6pm: Yin Yoga
Once the heat has subsided a little we reconvene for our 2-hour evening Yin practice. In this session we will focus on working at a deeper level, understanding the different layers of the body: astral, casual and subtle, and explore the chakras how they relate to energy sites in our bodies. Yin is about quality rather than quantity - we will hold postures for longer, allowing you to go much further, and providing space to observe your thoughts, emotions, levels of resistance, and attachment. In this class you will create space within and move closer to your real self as you surrender and open up body and mind to the unknown.
It is highly advised to come to each practice with an open mind and heart; to observe and let go, to witness without judgement, and eventually surrender to all there is and embrace the experience happening right here right now.
