Hatha Yoga in the mountains at Las Chimeneas with Carrie Rodd

We are already looking forward for Carrie joining us for her sixth consecutive year of Hatha yoga at Chimeneas.   It has always been a delightful week with two sessions a day of Carrie’s inspiring teaching as well as a wide range of extra activities such as local walks, cooking with the Chimeneas chefs Sole and Conchi as well as local cultural visits and to the Palaces of the Alhambra in Granada.

About Carrie

Carrie has been practising Yoga for about 15 years. She studied Ashtanga with Danny Paradise, Anusara with Bridget Woods Kramer, Iyengar with Anna Ashby, meditation with Emil Wendel.   Carrie’s formal Yoga Teacher training was with Triyoga London where she studied for 18months with Jeff Phenix and Susannah Hoffman and achieved a distinction in the 200 hour training accredited by The British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance.  This year Carrie has studied with Jason Crandell on his Advanced Teacher Training programme. Carrie blends different styles of Hatha Yoga to develop a practise which is invigorating and healing, soothing and strengthening.

A week of Hatha yoga to deepen your practice, or if you are a beginner, to introduce you to the practice of asana that can develop strength, flexibility and focus.

We will begin each day with an awakening of the muscular body, slowly opening and warming, leading to a graceful vinyasa. The afternoon sessions will reflect a slower more meditative pace,   delving a little deeper into certain aspects  of Yoga and tailoring a practice for each individual.  At the end of the week you will have a yoga session designed specifically for you to take home and through your yoga practice build the best possible version of yourself.
