Goa Retreat

'Being Here'

Ten days of yoga and meditation with Norman Blair and Maitripushpa Bois in the wonderful setting of Jivana Retreat Centre, Goa.

Thursday 22 February - Saturday 3 March 2018

About the retreat
Common complaints are tiredness and tension, strain and stress. Common desires are openness, clarity, simplicity. These ten days of yoga and meditation will allow space for participants to become more here, more embedded in body/mind and more able to practice and live with wisdom.

Norman and Maitripushpa are experienced teachers with a deep commitment to making practice accessible and appropriate.

Each day there will be a morning session of meditation followed by an Ashtanga yoga led-class. In the afternoon, there will be meditation followed by a session of Yin yoga. The yoga will be structured so that people are encouraged to find their own possibilities. The meditation will include a variety of different techniques and styles, including sitting, walking and cultivation of particular qualities

One of our venue's unique roomsThere will be plenty of free time to rest and to explore the area. One of Goa’s most beautiful beaches is within easy walking distance.

Rather than bullying the body and attempting to achieve postures, this is about befriending the body so the poses help us to be more body. Softening and strengthening the mind to be open to what is encourages this befriending, bringing together body, head and heart.
