“Moving Beyond” with Ellen de Jonge April 1-8 2017
A week long Yoga retreat in beautiful Belize.
We will practice our asanas, daily meditation, yoga nidra, pranayama, mantras, anatomy lecture with Ticia Pilati, Sutra and Bhagavad Gita talks and of course lots of free time to enjoy the surroundings, beach time or you can go on a Belize adventure.
The goal from this “Moving Beyond” Yoga Retreat is for you to find out that yoga is so much more than asana. We will look into the magic of the breath and meditation, the power of mantras, the manifistation in the practice of Yoga Nidra, enjoying and discussing the ancient scriptures and more.
Of course we practice on our mat, all in Vinyasa Krama style, taping into the right energies for you to move further in your practice. Undertstanding your practice on a higher level and discover the true self.
All this overlooking the beautiful the Atlantic Caribbean ocean, tasty healthy meals, juices and tea throughout the day…..what could go wrong?
Originally from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Ellen moved to Playa del Carmen, Mexico in 2001. In Playa del Carmen is where she did her first Yoga practice and right away felt that this was her life changing moment.
Ellen’s uniquely designed Vinyasa Flow has become highly popular, drawing students from around the world to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, where Ellen is based. Renowned in her field for her strength and helping her students to find their own strength Ellen will challenge you in class, but not without a special focus on safety, alignment, breath and meditation. Bringing into the practice that Yoga is not only asana but a great journey to take and if you let it a way of life.
Having trained with teachers such as Baron Baptiste, Erich Schiffman, Dharma Mitra, and Bryan Kest, Ellen now continues her studies with Para Yoga founder Rod Stryker who, amongst other things works in finding “supreme accomplishment” both in yoga practice and in life.
