RECEPTIVITY

A YOGIC EXPLORATION WITH PAMELA AND KARA

Pamela and Kara invite you to join them for a Yogic Exploration of Receptivity in the breathtaking Sacred Valley of Peru.

True Nature Travels

Become more receptive to your inner Self through the ancient art, science and philosophy of yoga. Pamela and Kara are both Iyengar practitioners and teachers but their individual personalities and experiences will allow you to experience a full range of yoga asana, pranayama and meditation.

By becoming more receptive we are more open to receive fully with our heart and minds the joys yoga can bring – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually during this amazing week.

Through the progression of the week, you will not only gain more strength and flexibility in the physical body, but let go of stress, tension and negative thought patterns that you no longer need to carry.

Exploring and moving from the external to the internal landscape is truly the art of receptivity. Set your intention for healing, transformation and becoming more whole hearted in 2020. Join us in the Sacred Valley of Peru!  

“Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.” B.K.S. Iyengar

BKS Iyengar

 

Yoga means union. The union of the individual soul with the Universal Spirit is yoga. But this is too abstract a notion to be easily understood, so for our level of understanding I say that yoga is the union of body with the mind and of mind with the soul”.
– BKS Iyengar, Tree of Yoga.

Iyengar yoga is a transformative practice using the body as capitol for the mind.  The method is derived from the personal practice of BKS Iyengar who spent 80 years using his body to find and create the harmony with his mind. Tapas is self liberation through the act of will and the practice of yoga allows us to discover how we live in our bodies and therefore the world.

The practice of yoga is non-discriminatory, stiff, flexible, young, mature,  in the practice of Iyengar Yoga, everyone is welcome, necessary and of value.

BKS Iyengar approach has given many the ability to face the physical, mental and emotional challenges of contemporary life with strength, vitality, mobility, thoughtfulness and equanimity.

The term “Iyengar Yoga” was coined by students of Mr. Iyengar to distinguish Guruji’s approach from other styles of yoga, health, and fitness to enjoy the benefits which a sustained practice can bring – the ability to face the physical, mental and emotional challenges contemporary life with strength, vitality, mobility, thoughtfulness and equanimity.

Sample Itinerary

Every retreat is unique and, as such, the itineraries are ever-changing! We finalize the itineraries about 3-6 weeks before the retreat, but after 10 years of hosting retreats, we do have a general idea of what most schedules look like.

Most retreats include one-to-two daily yoga classes. One class takes place in the morning, either just before or just after breakfast. After the first class and meal, you have free time to explore, relax, or take part in optional add-on activities. Lunch (if included in your retreat) will take place midday, during this free time. There is then, usually, an afternoon class followed by dinner. Occasionally some teachers choose to offer an evening restorative class or group gathering after dinner as well.

In addition, there is usually one dedicated “excursion day” in which we do not have scheduled yoga classes. This is a day for people to take advantage of some of the more involved tour and excursion offerings and is always a lot of fun!
