VINYASA YOGA, Movement articulation & classical indian sound meditation RETREAT
with Tatiana Depillo, Benjamin Sears & Jaya Ramaprasad
Special rates for this late addition to our incredible Summer! Scroll down.
LUXYOGA'S signature challenging yet safely structured Vinyasa practice gets a joyful boost from the addition of joint-mobilization classes that develop coordination, strength and flexibility in incredibly fun ways. This is the buzz of being a kid on the playground with the mindfulness of yoga, the freedom of dance, and the healthy discipline of martial arts. This retreat will present a very accessible balance of stillness and movement to integrate the reflective, nervous-system nourishing aspects of yoga asana with the coordination development of basic dance movement patterns.
All in all, yoga remains of course our primary focus with the addition of three carefully curated classes all devoted to our movement therapy practice as taught by Tatiana Depillo and Benjamin Sears. Tatiana, who was recruited by famed dance company Alvin Ailey at the tender age of seventeen, is now a featured member of the Aera Aerial dance company with eight years of experience as a yoga teacher as well. This retreat will represent the fourth collaboration between Benjamin and Tatiana and the integration of their studies with Ido Portal and promises to seamlessly develop a unique body-mind balance that above all will translate into the possibility of life lived fluidly and gracefully.
Last but not least, we offer a unique and enriching opportunity to experience Indian sound meditation and Yoga Nidra as well as lessons in mantra and chanting with Jaya Ramaprasad, an Indian-born, classically training musician since childhood who holds a Phd in physics, has worked as a researcher at NASA Goddad, the University of Washington and currently works as a market researcher at Microsoft. Jaya represents a perfect addition to the LUXYOGA team as she is a powerful conduit between the ancient traditions and modern applications of yoga.
