Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a traditional form of yoga that was taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. This method of dynamic yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures, producing intense internal heat and sweat, which purifies the body from toxins. As a result, not only blood circulation improves, but it also allows the body to gain strength and flexibility. Practionners also increase their ability to concentrate and becomes calmer.
Our teaching is tailored for all levels of practitioners including (beginners, intermediate, advanced, and Mysore Style practitioners). Both morning and evening Yoga sessions will be led with precision and safety, strongly focusing on alignment, posture modifications, gradual adaptation and progressive practices, giving full personal attention to each of participants' needs.
Our teachers are Linda Munro & Gérald Disse at Ashtanga Yoga Paris: www.ashtangayogaparis.fr
This experience of Moroccan "art de vivre" would not be complete without a taste of authentic Fassi cuisine! Fez is also famous for its cuisine, one of the best in Morocco. During this retreat, we will offer you the finest vegetarian and healthy food, inspired by the colored and spicy repertoire of typical Moroccan cuisine, and particularly Fassi cuisine.
Stay and practice yoga in the quietness and refinement of a Fassi riad. Located in the heart of the medina, near by the main street TalaaSghira, close to Mnebhi Palace, Dar Labchara is a 18th century house, restored and furnished in a traditional style. The courtyard,with its colored zellige (typical Moroccan mosaic), creates a feeling of peace and quietness ideal for relaxation and meditation. The terrace offers an amazing view on this beautiful city and its minarets.
