Scotland Retreat

Yoga and meditation at Eco Yoga

Norman Blair and Maitripushpa are revisiting Eco Yoga in 2019

Friday 10 May - Wednesday 13 May

About the retreat

The morning yoga class is Ashtanga with love.
 Plenty of props and plenty of options. Although based on the primary series, the class takes a slower pace than traditional Ashtanga classes - and there will be variations and other possibilities available. There is definitely room for manoeuvre.

The afternoon class is Yin yoga.
 A beautiful way to balance the stronger and more dynamic form. Yin yoga is much slower. We stay in postures for a longer periods of time.

There will be two sessions of meditation each day led by Maitripushpa. The sessions will include body awareness,
walking meditation, sitting and other contemplative

Maitripushpa began her regular meditation practice in the mid-1980s and has been practicing yoga since the mid-1990s. She constantly watches and learns how the two practices influence each other.

Our aspiration is that this retreat will be a way of gently easing tensions and tightness from the body - thus allowing us to be more grounded and more skilful in our interactions with ourselves, each other and all that is around us.

We strongly encourage retreat participants to travel in the most environmentally sustained way.

Practical, intelligent and with a sense of humour, Norman’s grasp of all things yogic is deep yet accessible. In London Norman teaches classes, workshops and teacher training courses as well as working with small groups of teachers who value his support and advice. Maitripushpa’s sunny and helpful outlook, along with her deep knowledge of all things meditational, completes this retreat mix.

Maitripushpa and Norman
Meditation with Maitripushpa is varied and can be a great introduction to meditation or an amazing opportunity for existing practitioners to develop. A couple of sessions each day allow her to tap into the vibe created by the asana classes. Guests drop deeply into themselves in her classes that may include body awareness, walking meditation, sitting or various contemplative practices. 

Maitripushpa has a big Buddhist influence but years of study with varied traditions inform and enrich the meditation experience on this retreat.
