ARCADIA YOGA IMMERSION:
4-day Yoga Retreat with Simon Borg-Olivier in Spain
27-30 July 2017
Arcadia Retreat Centre, near Girona
Join us for a deeply energizing yoga immersion with internationally-renowned yoga teacher and physiotherapist Simon Borg-Olivier, on retreat for the first time in Spain. Come to learn, practice and feel new ways to energise, nourish and strengthen the body, while cultivating a calm and balanced internal state.
We’ll have the opportunity to go in depth into the art and science of developing our personal yoga practice, and benefit from Simon’s over 35 years experience teaching yoga around the world.
Each day will include an intensive program of asana, pranayama, movement and meditation practices, as well as workshops on the applied anatomy and physiology of hatha yoga, the principles of Yoga Synergy, and yogic nutrition.
About Simon Borg-Olivier
Simon is co-director of one of Australia’s oldest and most well-respected studios, Yoga Synergy. The Yoga Synergy style is derived from the work of Professor T. Krishnamacharya. Sri Krishnamacharya was teacher to three of the most influential yoga masters alive today – Sri B.K.S. Iyengar (author of Light on Yoga), Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (who developed Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga) and Sri T.K.V. Desikachar (author of The Heart of Yoga).
The style has been developed by Simon and studio partner Bianca Machliss over 30 years and incorporates asanas (poses and postures), vinyasa (exercises) and pranayama (breathing control) and meditation. It’s a dynamic, moving meditation, which links specific yoga postures performed in sequence, with specific breathing patterns. It is very effective in developing strength, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, increasing energy and the ability to deal with stress. All postures taught have a simple and a more challenging version so – whether you’re a beginner or an advanced student, and depending on how you feel on the day – you’ll be able to choose the level of difficulty that suits you.
