Yoga Retreat in Tuscany, Italy with Patrick Oancia (YogaJaya, Tokyo) & Qbi (Inspya, Hamburg)
The aim is to restore the human essence that is lost to everyday stress and to achieve total relaxation through regeneration. Lunigiana is an idyllic landscape in Tuscany unspoiled by tourism, a wild reserve of nature... green hills rising from the sea through vineyards and olive groves into forests of chestnut, gurgling creeks and mountain meadows set against the rocky Apuan Alps. This venue is the ideal place for Patrick Oancia and Qbi to share the secrets of release, introspection and finally, total relaxation through yoga.
Each day will start with meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises) and asanas (postures). In the afternoon we will explore yoga philosophy and the deeper rationale behind the technique of the Asanas. Daily yoga instruction ranging from the challenging and dynamic to the regenerative and relaxing will be framed within the sessions of meditation and pranayama. With open hearts, friendly humor and a unique lightness we will seek the core of yoga together. Additional activities will include hikes on the mountainside, trips to the sea, picnics on the beach as well as simple relaxing and unwinding. This retreat is suited to yogis of all levels!
We will be staying in a beautiful former monastery in Casola.
The cuisine is varied vegetarian.
