BHAVA RETREAT

YOGA & MEDITATION

BLUE MOUNTAINS, NSW

26 -28 NOVEMBER  2021

ABOUT THE RETREAT

 “Yoga is like music. The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul creates the symphony of life.” B.K.S. Iyengar

Yoga creates a powerful space to reconnect with our true essence and to release old emotions and blockages that stop us from living the most powerful version of ourselves.

In this retreat, we will dive into a deep journey within: 3 days of  yoga classes, healthy meals, and being immersed in the beauty of nature in the Blue Mountains NSW.

Intimate and exclusive, this retreat has been designed for a small group setting.

ASANA CLASSES

 

“My Body Is My Temple And Asanas Are My Prayers”  B.K.S. Iyengar

Enjoy daily ASANA practices to nurture your body and soul. Julio will share Hatha Yoga style practices focusing in alignment using props to help everyone to embody the shapes in the best way to their body type, creating space for us to integrate and understand how to practice in our day to day lifes.

PRANAYAMA  AND MEDITATION

 

"Meditation is the journey from movement to stillness, from sound to silence" Sri Sri Ravi Shankar 

Pranayama and Meditation are the subtle elements of the Yoga practice although the most powerful ones regard shifting our energy levels and mental perception. Have you heard that famous quote "Yoga makes you happier"? Yeah! Is through these techniques that you will increase your PRANA and experience a better life.

PHILOSOPHY

"Everything is impermanent. Knowing this, just relax."  Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Yoga Philosophy is a powerful tool to learn and complements the other aspects of the practice. Julio will share in a contemporary way his favourite pieces of Yogic texts, inviting the group to bring their own view of the knowledge. It will be an inspiring session.

"SO MEANINGFUL AND FROM THE HEART"

“What I loved about this retreat was the honest and connection with instructors, participants, hosts and dogs!

The location was splendid, easy to get to and so warm and inviting.

All the sessions had intent, meaning and connection to the soul. Music choices, playlists were chosen with such care and thought. Fragrances and rituals were so meaningful and from the heart.

I love the group of participants, opening of their hearts and theories they gave."
