ONE WEEK MINI INTENSIVE YOGA IMMERSIONS

DIVE IN AND DEEPEN YOUR PERSONAL PRACTICE

Bodhini Yoga provides the perfect landing pad for all those seeking to go inward, self reflect and deepen their understanding of their yoga practice.

Immerse yourself in a schedule of daily Meditation, Breath work, morning Vinyasa and evening Yin yoga practice. Explore in depth yoga anatomy, alignment, energetic technique, adjustments and modifications in daily workshops detailing the anatomy of the breath, bandhas, forward folds, standing and balancing postures, twists, back bends and inversions. Here we really put our practice under the microscope and ensure that what we are doing on the mat makes sense and is safe and effective for our body, mind and soul.

Each student will also receive an optional private consultation to explore and highlight the key areas, postures and practices that suit their individual needs.

We come together as a family of kind, caring and supportive souls with a mutual endeavor to grow in understanding, acceptance and love. 

It is a pleasure to be able to offer both new and experienced yogis, a safe, solid and effective foundation to the practice of yoga.

I look forward to sharing the heart of yoga and its deeply healing benefits with you all.

Immersion Daily Schedule

free donation based yoga retreats

Morning meditation and breathwork

30-60 min

At sunrise we journey through various meditation and pranayama techniques to experience what it means to direct subtle energy and awareness, to strengthen the mind for self enquiry for the cultivation of wisdom and truth

Breathwork practices include:

Kapalabhati, 3 part full yogic breath, Ujayi breath and bandha activation, Breath retention, Alternate nostril breathing.

Dynamic Vinyasa Practice

60-90 min

Each morning we flow together, incorporating the key principles gathered in our workshops: A true breath centered practice, inner attention to the somatic body, rooting and stabilizing, creating fluidity of the spine and freedom around the heart.

In Vinyasa we open up to the ultimate way to breath and move through each moment, with the gift of grace and complete presence.

Anatomy, technique, alignment workshop

2 Hr

Our afternoon workshops systematically take a deep look at physical alignment and movement techniques, with reference to relevant anatomy. 

We also dive into the energetic principles that help to unify and bring the posture to life and we demonstrate how to modify in a way that still fulfills the purpose of each posture. 

On top of all these tools, which are necessary to create a safe and rewarding practice… we always reinforce how to fulfill the real meaning and essence of Yoga.

Optional private 1hr private yoga consultation

1 Hr

Each student has the option to receive a 1-1 yoga consultation to explore their practice and determine the most effective postures and exercises for their body to bring about greater balance.

Gentle Yin and Restorative practice

60-90 min

In the evening we surrender and unwind body and mind into a state of deep abiding presence. Yin shows us what it truly means to let go, to be at peace, to be in radical acceptance of our whole being, to love ourselves as we are.

Evening Sharing, Philosophy & Meditation

30-60 min

Each evening we get together to share and explore yoga philosophy, followed by various sound based meditation practices to re-establish the deep hearing of the true heart. Everything in the universe is a vibration of sound. We must simply learn the right way to hear in order to unravel all of life’s mysteries. 

IS THIS IMMERSION FOR YOU?

This course is suitable for all levels of practitioner, whether completely new to yoga or an existing yoga teacher.

We only ask that your genuine intention is to deepen your practice and that you are open and willing to do the work required to cultivate self awareness, self knowledge and true wisdom.

We encourage you to stay in the space that nurtures inner transformation, that is, setting aside the desire to seek external distractions and pleasures.

The infinite pool of love and happiness is of the heart.
