Pranyama and Ashtanga with Kia
Monday 31st July - Saturday 12th August 2023
Ashtanga Yoga & Pranayama Sadhana in depth with KIA NADDERMIER
Join Kia Naddermier for a 12-day retreat in the magnificent mountains of the Sierra Nevada to deepen your practice and understanding of yoga as a whole – allowing its subtleties to unfold and blossom.
We open our mornings with Ashtanga Yoga – Mysore Style classes, where you receive individual guidance and adjustments from Kia, and some led classes focused on specific aspects of the practice. Afternoon sessions are dedicated to the philosophy and practice of Pranayama, ancient yogic breathing techniques. Kia will offer her experience and guidance as we allow space for a daily practice of Ashtanga Yoga, Pranayama, and Kriyas (yogic purification techniques) as well as Sitting and Mantra-recitation. Integrating all aspects will take your practice to the next level of awareness, allowing it to unfold and blossom. Kia will be assisted by her long-time apprentice Lise de la Brosse.
Alongside the yoga practice, there will be other optional activities including day trips to Almeria beach, vegetarian cookery with local chefs, hiking, and, of course, hanging by the pool or enjoying holistic massages from Maura Mulvaney
Run by the lovely British couple David & Emma Illsey, Las Chimeneas is a truly authentic and unique pearl, located in one of the most beautiful and energetically powerful spots in all of Europe. The accommodation is lovely, with plenty of antiques, books, nooks and crannies. Many rooms have fabulous views across the hills to the distant sea. The food is delicious - organic, vegetarian, locally grown. Yoga classes are held in the outdoor shala which nestles in olive groves, overlooking the mountains. This is a magical place to retreat, re-charge and give yourself space to deepen your practice.
The course is open to all levels of practitioners familiar with Ashtanga Yoga.
