Yoga is about coming back to the present moment
Back to our bodies
Back to ourselves
Our peace and serenity are HERE, NOW
Let the present moment become our home again
Our yoga is a fusion of alignment-based and flowing asanas. Asana helps us to detoxify the body while improving strength, balance and flexibility. Pranayama (breathing exercises) is key to yoga, and is a focus at our retreats. At Nalu you will relearn how to use you breath muscles in order to purify and energize body-mind, release old emotions and break up stagnant energy. Pranayama will help bring you to the deep, conscious relaxation of savasana and meditation. This deep, conscious relaxation is the key to physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.
Our teachers focus on the heart of yoga, union, through encouraging reminders- to sink into the breath, release tension patterns, and open the heart- our gateway to joy and love. Partner poses and gentle adjustments are incorporated throughout the classes to raise body-mind awareness and sink deeper into the practice.
To enjoy a Nalu Yoga Retreat, you need only an openness to embrace the benefits of yoga.
