THE YOGA LESSONS
TEACHER: ANE BERG VIGHALS
Karlien is a locally based Yoga teacher and has been a Yoga practitioner since a very young age; “it was one of my after-school activities". At the age of 21she first travelled to India, where her fascination for Yoga grew. Karlien has completed a 4-year Yoga Teacher Training, in the European Sadhana Teacher Training School. She stayed at the Sivananda Meenakshi Ashram in India to learn from Sivananda teachers and continue to learn and enroll in different teacher trainings to offer the best possible care in her class.
The yoga classes are a mixture of Hatha yoga, calm vinyasa (yoga flow), yin yoga, breathing exercises and mindfulness meditation. We start the day with a soft morning yoga class (60 minutes), to wake up our bodies after a great night sleep and to help us prepare our hips, spine, and our energy through breathing for a morning meditation session in The Chapel.
The yoga classes take place in the beautiful garden. While we practice outdoors, surrounded by the natural park of Almijara, we deepen our breathing, focusing on renewing the air in our lungs and focus on learning new healthy breathing patterns. Practicing outdoors also allows us to relax due to the soothing effect of nature on our nervous system..Yoga is suitable for everyone regardless of age and physical form and you do not need to have experience with yoga before. Here you work on your own level and with your own starting point. We explain the exercises clearly and adapt to your individual needs.
The yoga / hiking vacation will be a break from daily demands and obligations. We offer the opportunity to stop, make time for yourself, to let go of tensions related to stress, bad posture, bad sleeping or eating habits. When the program is complete, the participants have practiced yoga and meditation every day, hiked in the mountains, relaxed, and taken in nature's healing effect on body and soul.Guests will travel home with inspiration and better health! This retreat is ideal for singles, couples, friends or groups..
