Flowing Vinyasa Yoga

with Shamita Ray

Using her background as a dancer, Shamita will create imaginative sequences which move seamlessly from one posture to the next, in a dance-like flow of breath and movement.

Practitioners will be encouraged to challenge themselves to discover what their bodies are truly capable of, while maintaining a sense of humour and playfulness throughout.

About Shamita Ray

A former dancer and choreographer, Shamita started practising Iyengar yoga as a means to increase flexibility and complement dance training. A chance wandering into an Ashtanga class one day turned what was, until then, a mere hobby, into a lifelong passion, rivalling her love for dance.

She went on to study with international teachers, including David Swenson, with whom she completed Ashtanga teacher training, and Lara Baumann, with whom she completed 500 hour teacher training. Ever curious to explore other, diverse styles of yoga, she has also completed Advanced Teacher Training with Ana Forrest, and most recently, completed an intensive meditation teacher training with Sally Kempton.

Retreat inclusions

How does it work?

On this weekend the 2 morning sessions will commence with pranayama (breathing techniques), which will lead into a flowing, dynamic yoga practice that combines the precision and alignment of Iyengar, with the breath and dynamism of Ashtanga.

The 2 evening sessions will follow a 'workshop style' format exploring a different theme each day to ignite your curiosity, and encourage you to deepen your practice. The evening session will always finish with a blissful relaxation and meditation.
