April 4-18, 2020: Preventive Ashtanga Yoga Retreat in Apulia

April 4-18, 2020: Preventive Ashtanga Yoga Retreat in Apulia Prévention Yoga Massage

Preventive Yoga corresponds to an evolution of consciousness, to a wish for more autonomy in practice, to the desire to heal ourselves by directing our senses inward, to listening to the bodily Wisdom that dwells within us.

Applying preventive parameters, optimizes movements by the synergistic solicitation of the entire muscular system. Preventive movement is therefore more global, easier and safer than the voluntary movement imposed on the body. 

This retreat is an opportunity to take care of yourself, with pleasure, through regenerating activities that promote awareness and letting go, health and well-being.

Dates: 2 weeks, at your choice or in a row / 14 participants maximum.
