All of the daily sessions Clive will conduct in Japan during the Mountain retreat and weekend workshop will start with a meditation practice and pranayama class followed by an asana class. In each afternoon session, Clive will give a discourse on the inner teachings of yoga, followed by a second asana class and finishing the day with pranayama.

Asana/Pranayama/Meditation Mitake Mountain Retreat
September 18th-23rd, 2009

The retreat will be held at the spiritually renowned “Mitake Mountain”. Mitake has been worshipped since ancient times with many sacred locations for ascetic training.

Musashi-Mitake shrine is situated at the pinnacle of the mountain (929 meters), and is accessible to the public only by climbing or cable car. The Musashi-Mitake Shinto shrine is one of the oldest in Japan founded 2100 years ago, and is one of the most spiritual sites that can be found in Kanto area.

Retreat and accommodation will be in a 180-year-old Japanese traditional thatched roof temple lodging that has been preserved by the Kubota family for 18 generations. Vegetarian meals will be provided.

There are several hiking trails through the mountain forests to enjoy during the leisure time. A hike to the summit where the Musashi-Mitake Shrine is situated offers amazing vistas over the Chichibu-Tama-Kai national park.
