Ready to establish your Ashtanga Yoga home practice, but not sure how to make the leap?
Get away with an immersive destination intensive to give your home Ashtanga yoga practice a rock-solid foundation (or, for established practitioners, a bolt of re-inspiration.) Ashtanga Yoga Nicaragua is offering a six-day intensive with authorized Ashtanga Yoga teacher Ann Arnesson. It’s the perfect opportunity to establish (or reestablish) your home Ashtanga yoga practice.
Ann Arnesson believes that anyone can do yoga – except people who don’t want to. Authorized to teach the Ashtanga lineage by R. Sharath Jois at the Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute, she offers a playful, accessible teaching style that is welcoming to practitioners at all stages of life and practice. Also an Ayurvedic health consultant, she integrates her deep knowledge of holistic health into her teaching, and will also offer Ayurvedic health consultations during the intensive.
Marvelous Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Practice
The focal point of this peaceful intensive will be daily Ashtanga yoga Mysore practice, a highly individualized, silent practice that is perfect for building a home practice. In Mysore-style practice, each student moves through the Ashtanga yoga sequence to the point necessary for their particular needs and development under the supervision and guidance of an experienced Ashtanga yoga teacher. The Ashtanga yoga practice is taught systematically and individually, memorized in the body as postures are added gradually over time. As a result, students are able to take absolute ownership of their practices, offering a supportive yoga practice that is still there for you when you roll out your mat at home. In our six-day intensive, Ann will offer her experience and knowledge to help establish strong foundations that you can carry with you the rest of your life.
While practicing yoga in Nicaragua, you’ll also have the opportunity to explore this enchanting country’s many wonders. In between morning practice and informative evening lectures and programs with Ann, you’ll have the day to explore the town of San Juan del Sur. Stunning beaches await for those looking for sun or surf. If you’re seeking adventure, you can arrange to explore nearby volcanoes or take a canopy tour. Linger over long meals full of nourishing, healthy foods as you get to know your classmates. Let yourself fall into the relaxed rhythm of this peaceful place, letting your mind calm with the sound of the nearby ocean during this treat of a yoga retreat in Nicaragua. You’ll return home refreshed, rejuvenated – and with a practice to last a lifetime.
