“Deepen your yoga practice with the Iyengar method and rejuvenate your body and mind surrounded by the beautiful Swedish nature”

SONY DSC

“This is Iyengar yoga at its finest: detailed attention to alignment, customised for each body type…. Alex is a gem, warm and gruff and funny and exacting as needed. The more he gets to know a student the more he can push or be sensitive, he has a good read on the physical and emotional capacities of the students…. There’s a lot of partner work and helping each other, which makes for good natured fun as well as hard work. I loved it and can’t wait to go back.” -Christine

INTRODUCTION

Take a short break to reconnect with your body and yourself.

Alex will inspire you to go deeper in your yoga practice and to get the full benefit out of the poses using, when needed, the perfect set up for your body. The daily practice is designed in a way you will feel energised and relaxed. Be prepared to be challenged in the morning asana classes but also to let go and relax during the restorative sessions. You will still have a lot of time for you to rest, maybe have a walk in the forest, swim in the lake, go to the sauna and enjoy the delicious vegan and gluten-free food prepared by the Shambala kitchen team.

Everyone is welcome, beginners as well as advanced yoga practitioners.
