Yoga Retreat with Tessa Meek
October 25, 2022 @ 4:00 pm – October 31, 2022 @ 1:00 pm
This retreat will be an opportunity to turn inward and deepen your practice while also enjoying time spent in nature and with others from our special community.
Iyengar yoga is a practical and holistic approach to the vast subject of yoga, made accessible to all, and is practised by millions of people worldwide. Iyengar Yoga is distinguished by its innovative use of props, its precision and detail to alignment within the asanas, and is renowned for its healing and therapeutic capabilities.
The practice of yogasana for the sake of health, to keep fit, or to maintain flexibility is the external practice of yoga. While this is a legitimate place to begin, it is not the end … Even in simple asanas, one is experiencing the three levels of quest: the external quest, which brings firmness of the body; the internal quest, which brings steadiness of intelligence; and the innermost quest, which brings benevolence of spirit.
