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. 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.
