Heal and Fortify: Body and Soul–A six-night Yoga Retreat with Elena Brower, October 25-31, 2009
If you can afford to do just one yoga retreat this year, this is the one. Seasoned New York Yogi, Elena Brower is pairing with Parrot Cay’s Como Shambhala Yoga Retreat in Turks and Caicos for a six-night barefoot retreat from October 25-31, 2009. Offering twice-daily classes of postures, meditation, and breath work, Brower’s subtle alignment cues and carefully selected practices will strengthen and ground students at all levels in this turquoise Caribbean refuge. Brower is a certified Anusara teacher and the founder of Virayoga in New York City, which enjoys a cult following that includes clients like Gwyneth Paltrow, Naomi Watts, and Rebecca Romijn. Brower has a rare gift for healing using her special touch and voice that can penetrate the weariest of bodies and souls with her relaxed, nurturing, and inspirational teaching style. In her classes, you will experience both Anusara and Rajanaka Yoga through the lens of Self-Mastery, a precise practice aimed at reclaiming and refining your most precious asset: your attention. Something we all struggle to hang on to in this technology crazed world. So leave your blackberries behind and improve your communication skills the old fashioned way–be seen and not heard.
