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.

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.

Before teaching yoga she was a ceramic artist. She studied at Edinburgh College of Art and later finishing postgraduate studies in Kyoto, Japan.

In human affairs it is usual initially for people to have the notion that Love is the same thing as attachment or attraction between the sexes.
This is natural, but the dignity of human life lies in evolving out of this nature, to go higher and higher.
As long as we keep expecting something from others, we cannot feel love.
Step by step all expectations must fall away.
We must become humble.
We must be loving to others and willing to serve them without any expectation from them.
Then inner purification will happen and real life will start.
It will be a life of peace, harmony and real Love.
