Yoga with Joanna on retreat: There will be two sessions each day (with one free afternoon during the week to explore the local area). In the mornings there will be a 2 hour invigorating Prana Vinyasa Flow yoga practice inspired by the teachings of Shiva Rea, to blow away the cobwebs and set you up for your day! In the evenings there will be a 90 minute Yin Yoga session which will be more lunar and meditative with long held Yin postures to relax you and release tension in the joints of the hips, legs and spine. Both sessions will include a delicious Savasana or Yoga Nidra to take you even deeper into your relaxed state of being and include Pranayama, Mudra and Meditation.
Whilst the mornings will be strong and flowing, Joanna will offer different kramas (stages) in the postures which will be suitable for beginners and more experienced students. Everyone in the class will have a chance to work at their own level and even explore different aspects of their yoga practice which may take them into new realms of their body to achieve greater physical openness and clarity of mind. Expect to be completely Prana-fied by the end of the week!
