‘Yoga of The Heart’ Spring Retreat with Emma Warmington & Peter Goodman

‘Yoga of The Heart’ Spring Retreat with Emma Warmington & Peter Goodman

Molino Del Rey, Andalucía, Spain
13th to 20th May 2018

Join long term friends Emma & Peter for this delicious one week yoga retreat at one the world’s finest retreat centers, Molino De Rey.

Nestled in the mountains of Andalucía in the remote hamlet of Jorox on the doorstep of Sierra de las Nieves nature reserve, Molino Del Rey has well earned it’s reputation as the best retreat center in Spain and one of the best in the world.

A beautiful, bright, fully equipped yoga shala for our 2 daily practices, partially encaved salt water swimming pool for daily dips, gorgeous comfortable accommodation in beautifully appointed rooms, international standard massage and spa treatments and bright open spaces. We have plenty of nooks and crannies with hammocks, couches & lounges for complete surrender to quiet time, connection time, rest and relaxation in the sun or in the shade, gazing at the incredible natural surrounding whist breathing in the scent of the mountain flowers, hill walking, horse riding and nature exploration for when you feel more energised days. There are a collection of incredible caves throughout the property for meditation, chanting together and kirtan singing. We will be served fantastic much acclaimed food and local wine. We have just about everything we could ask for on this rejeuvenating, relaxing and connecting retreat.

Hatha Yoga with Emma will be breath lead, sometimes yang, sometimes yin, sometimes energising, sometimes introspective and restorative, always breath initiating movement, felt sense awareness, asana, pranayama & meditation as one seemless process – the exquisite union of body and breath participating in life as it is perfectly given. If you have not yet practiced with Emma, her teacher Mark Whitwell or another senior Heart of Yoga teacher, we can promise an enhancement to any form of yoga you have previously explored.

Hatha Yoga with Peter will be following the breath as the beginning to all movement. There will be a focus on biomechanical alignment as we transition from one pose to the next. We want to move safely, with good stability and a new found freedom. Finding the “sweet” spot in every pose. We will work on refining our movement creating the ability to filling up our heart with happiness and laughter just because we can. With Peter you will learn: Attitude, Alignment, and, Action.

Absolutely all levels of practitioner are welcome from beginners to seasoned yogis. This retreat is about connection, rejeuvenation, relaxation, nature, great food and fantastic people. All practices with Peter and Emma begin from the heart and come back to the heart. Come as you are, leave enraptured by life again.

Abhaya Yoga Retreat in Italy with Tara Glazier and Peter Goodman

Tara Glazier Bio:

Tara GlazierTara, E-RYT 500 is the owner and founder of Abhaya Yoga in Brooklyn, NY.  Since Abhaya’s inception in 2010, it has been Tara’s mission to create a home for yoga with a focus on community, education, healing, and spirituality.  Her classes are dynamic yet subtle and incorporate principles of the breath, the pranic body, and are inspired by mythology that she codes into an embodied experience through asana.  The Abhaya Method provides the framework for Tara’s teaching.

The Abhaya Method focuses on the return to our natural state by attuning to the architecture of the body aligned with a free and open breath.

Each layer of experience from most physical to most subtle is explored through asana, pranayama, meditation, subtle body techniques, philosophy study, chanting, and community support.

Tara holds certification in both Vinyasa traditions and Anusara.  Her passions are teaching teachers and helping students heal through yoga therapeutics.
Having led international retreats, spanning over 15 years, to Bali, Costa Rica, and Guatemala, have been some her greatest memories.

Tara is thrilled to return to Tuscany after almost 20 years.
