Basics and Beyond
May 12 - 19, 2012
with Elonne Stockton
About the Retreat
Develop a strong foundation in the practice of yoga asana and breathwork -pranayama, while you discover where the practice of yoga comes from, learn why we practice yoga to begin with and have some fun!
All levels are welcome. Understand how practical yoga is, how to apply yoga to your everyday life and how to realistically keep up the practice after you leave.
Throughout the week we will have morning breathwork - pranayama and asana sessions, helping you develop your self practice. Afternoon sessions will be discussions/workshops and restorative asana classes. Some mornings there will be additional silent walks or walking meditations, and some evenings we will have optional meditation and other activities.
Please join us!
About the Teacher
Elonne has been a committed yoga practitioner and devotee since the early age of 14. She has lived and taught in the Bahamas, Canada, India, the United States, and Taiwan where she has taught asana, pranayama, and meditation at yoga studios, ashrams, resorts, schools, orphanages, hospitals, and clinics.
In 2006, Elonne moved to Asia, where she met her teachers, Paul Dallaghan, O.P. Tiwari, and Richard Freeman.
As Elonne's understanding of the practice grows, she feels more and more like a beginner, and she is excited to continue this journey. She feels blessed by the opportunity to teach at Samahita Retreat, and she is extremely grateful for the chance to help others while she continues her own studies. For more see her full bio.
