Yogic Explorations

Jeff Mah: February 9-12, 2020

 

Retreat Description

We live in exciting times where there is an up swell of information. Riding this wave of knowledge, we see the practice of yoga undergo both a renaissance and an evolution. Naturally, with a flowering of techniques, it can be confusing to find material that is relevant to our lives. 

 

This three night, all-inclusive retreat, will explore a mix of yoga techniques that will elevate the understanding of your postures and provide insight on movement, recovery, and will dive deeper into why we have the bodies that we do. There will be challenges,

laughter, a-ha moments and a myriad of sensations will arise! Whether you are relatively new to yoga practice and looking to build a solid foundation, or a seasoned practitioner aiming for refinement, everyone will leave with meaningful techniques. To bring one's yoga practice back to the beauty of Lake Louise is a metaphor for our lives.

 

Nestled in this stunning mountain landscape, we will dive into the foundations of movement, mind and breath and create a bedrock for our yoga and a lake of stillness for our minds. With 15+ years of teaching, Jeff can draw from numerous experiences and insight as he shares his favourite explorations. Are you ready to explore your yoga further? To dance on the edge of what is comfortable? Then hop aboard for the adventure!
