Experience all elements of Iyengar yoga in quiet surrounds
For the 10th year running, Pixie Lillas will be teaching a one-week (7 nights) retreat for teachers and experienced students in Dolcedo, Liguria in Italy.
Unlike a yoga holiday, a retreat offers the opportunity to absorb oneself in the study of asana and pranayama without the obstacles of everyday concerns and commitments. Participants are encouraged to approach the week from the perspective of immersion and reflection.
Students who attend Dolcedo will have the opportunity to explore the effects of pranayama once or twice a day and to have ongoing sequential asana sessions which allow for the development of particular yoga techniques and concepts tailored to the group.
