December 28, 2010 Glorious Guatemalan retreat with Iyala Berley.. NYC jivamukti trained yoga teacher.
Come experience a week of blissful nourishment from the inside out. Iyala will guide you through 2 yoga classes a day (morning and evening), meditation, practices centered around awakening, restoring, and inspiring our true passions and purpose. The morning yoga class will enliven and awaken our body, mind, and spirit with a vinyasa practice and in the evening we will practice a flowing sequence with longer holds especially targeting the hips and shoulders . Each day there will be a guided meditation practice. We will explore one chakra each day as we use the 7 day retreat to balance the 7 major energy centers in the body. Drawing upon yoga philosophy, psychology,chanting, visualization, and astrology we will gain a deeper understanding of how these energy centers play into our well being, everyday life, and the choices we make. Bring a journal to document some of your experiences if you wish!
Go within to shine out!! Let us retreat and rediscover our harmonious and joyful creative Self. Surrounded by one of the most magical places it will be hard not to invoke the inner magic of transformation!
