The path in yoga finds its maximum expression when it brings transformation into life. The work on the asanas does not have the exclusive purpose of giving the body a greater capacity for movement and flexibility, but finds its most intrinsic value through the path to perfect the asanas themselves, which brings personal growth and a greater understanding of Things. The Ashtanga Yoga, discipline with well-defined and determined rules, teaches us a look in the situations foreseen by the difficulty that will inevitably be overcome. Our 7 days in Salento will emphasize the possible and great evolution that the practice of Ashtanga Yoga can give to all practitioners.
In sharing a message full of the tradition of this wonderful discipline, Elena’s teaching arrives subtly at the heart and mind of the students, finding the true meanings of a profound practice and the invaluable values of the mail with it; making them become an integral part of our life is the true purpose of yoga.
Mysore Style Morning Practice and Guided Beginners, Technical-Practice Classes, Pranayama, Meditation, Singing, Yoga Philosophy.
The afternoon yogic activities will be decided directly there with Elena and the students.
