In a change of date and venue, experienced yoga tutors Lucie Landau & Maggie Davis invite you to join them on retreat in Southern Spain 20th - 26th October 2019.
We will be exploring the energy system in the subtle body and its connection to the physical body and the mind. You'll also be able to enjoy time to yourself for walks, relaxation and a beautiful swimming pool, and silent times for reflection alongside social times for discussion. There are walks around the hotel to explore, so good walking shoes and some level of fitness is recommended .
We believe that yoga is not just a set of physical exercises but an attitude to life.

Satsang - literal meaning from Sanskrit sat meaning 'Truth', sanga meaning 'company'.
It is an Indian spiritual tradition which can mean:
(1) the company of the Highest Truth
(2) the company of an Enlightened person
(3) the company with an assembly of seekers who listen to enlightened discourses and talk about the Truth.

The aim of our life philosophy is the realisation of the human potential by opening one's awareness to that which is usually dormant in oneself.
When one experiences the joy of being in the present or in the Self, it leads to experiencing the underlying Unity of All. Yoga gives us various paths and practices that lead to this realisation.
It can be by adopting the selfless attitude of Karma yoga (service without expectations), the worship and service of Bhakti yoga (devotion and surrender) or detached analysis of Jnana yoga (wisdom without attachment).
Hatha yoga gives us the practical advice on how to purify our body and the body's energy system. Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads or Patanjali Yoga Sutras point us to the inner wisdom which we have the potential to discover in ourselves by disciplining the mind.
Lucie is a British Wheel of Yoga teacher and teacher trainer. Her main focus is on meditation, pranayama, yoga philosophy and how these practices can enhance our every day.
Her main inspiration were the Satsangs with her spiritual teacher Prof. O. Sharma in India with whom she studied and meditated for over 30 years. Her Hatha yoga teacher in England was the late Shri Indar Nath at Patanjali Yoga center in Battle.
Before teaching yoga she was a ceramic artist. She studied at Edinburgh College of Art and later finishing postgraduate studies in Kyoto, Japan.
After that, she had her own studio for a few years. She also taught ceramics at the Art College in Prague and at Adult Education in Kent, England.
Her second degree in Hindi and Indian philosophy is from the School of Oriental and African Studies in London.
When we feel that we are being used by somebody, or were used in the past, we feel sorrow because of this.
We ask how and why it could happen, wondering if it was due to fear of not being loved or guilt.
This is all because mind interprets events in that way and according to the characteristics of the individual.
But ultimately it is the ego.
Ego is the real problem.
Ego means the illusion of identifying our existence with what we are not, and the sense of separateness from the infinite truth.
That is the ego.
