Start the New Year on Solid Ground!

Standing poses infuse the body with energy.  As strong dynamic asanas they educate the legs and allow for the correct strengthening and supporting of the body.  Strong standing poses are the key to invigorating and quietening inversions.  As Iyengar said “we must learn to stand on our feet before we stand on our heads.”  Come for one or all of these special classes to stand strong on your feet.

A Retreat for Dedicated Students and Teachers:  Shiva’s Dynamic Stillness–the Involution of Practice.

Shiva, the eternal ascetic, guides the involution of our yoga practices and experiences. To call on him is to invite an inward journey to the purity of practice, stripped of adornment and affectation. Join experienced teacher, Mona, for three and a half days of practice where we will use the sanctuary of the retreat setting to draw in, burn away the blockages and emerge with a deeper connection to the heart of who we are.

Palapa Ganesh is located outside of the hip, lively town of Sayulita, about an hour drive from the airport in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The retreat site is self-contained with a private beach, a walled off pool, open-air living spaces and a covered yoga platform with views of the ocean. More information about the retreat centre is available here.

Cost: CDN$1000

Practice pre-requisites: Urdhva Dhanurasana, Sirsasana I (3-5min) and Sarvangasana (5-8min)

*NOW FULL* Retreat to Palapa Ganesh, Sayulita, Mexico

Myths and Metaphors – the stories behind the asanas

February 18 – February 25, 2017

with Mona Keddy

The mythology behind the yoga poses we regularly practice is a rich tapestry of archetypal themes that, when explored, give a deepening understanding of who we are. Come on a journey to the stories behind the asanas on Mona’s weeklong yoga retreat in Mexico. This year, the universal quest for connection, joy and renewal will guide our retreat experience. Throughout the week, we will journey through the Krishna Leela, the specific tales of one of the most popular gods in the yoga tradition, Krishna. We will explore tales of his playful spirit, his wisdom and his deep love and devotion. We will use the symbols, archetypes and mythological themes to understand Krishna and as a result, ourselves.

Our retreat site, Palapa Ganesh, is an oasis of quiet, broken only by the rhythmic sound of the waves brushing the beach. As such, it is the perfect venue for an exploration of the deeper layers of understanding.

Palapa Ganesh is located outside of the hip, lively town of Sayulita, about an hour drive from the airport in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
