Mysore in Marrakech with Scott Johnson
Thursday 19th - Monday 23rd October 2017
We are delighted to announce that Tonic Retreats is collaborating with acclaimed yoga teacher Scott Johnson from Stillpoint Yoga, London to bring you a Mysore style yoga & mindfulness retreat in Magical Marrakech this Autumn.
About this retreat
Each early morning and late afternoon there will be mindfulness meditation sessions so we can meet different parts of the day with intention and awareness.
The yoga schedule will be based on the traditional ashtanga vinyasa yoga method. The morning asana class will be mysore assisted self practice with Scott and Tonic teacher Pip Taverner. Knowledge of this method would be beneficial however Scott will also offer an extra class in the morning for beginners who wish to learn this method of practicing yoga from the beginning. The mysore assisted self practice class allows you to develop your own personal practice under the guidance of an experienced teacher, while practicing in a room with others. You get to have a one to one experience in a class with Scott tailoring the practice to you, your body and your life. You will leave the retreat with a deeper understanding and experience of how you fully connect to your yoga practice.
The afternoons will have workshops based on the techniques and principles of ashtanga yoga and mindfulness. We will be looking deeply into how these disciplines interact, how they deepen our personal yoga practices and how our practice filters into our lives.
This retreat will be eligible for those looking for CPD contact hours through Yoga Alliance UK. It is designed to be suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners and the group may be split accordingly to accommodate different abilities.
