Doorways to the Self Retreat with Ally Bogard and Elena in Italy
August 25, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - September 1, 2019 @ 9:00 am
“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.” ― Clarissa Pinkola Estés
When you practice yoga and meditation with intention and a certain quality of heart, you come into right relationship with your essential self. You shift from physical, mental, and emotional patterns of distortion and dissonance to resonance and connection.
On our second annual Luminary School retreat, you’ll engage practical and accessible approaches to living your yoga. Reveal your innate radiant energy, refine your voice, cultivate physical and emotional consistency, and amplify meaning in your life and your practice. Through asana and pranayama, self-reflection, subtle body alignment, meditation, and group discussions on acceptance, presence, and allowing, expose and clear expressions of dense emotions and focus on a love-based approach to life that offers greater clarity of mind.
This retreat is open to students with some proficiency in yoga, but classes will be all-levels.
Ally Bogard is my best friend, and Co-Founder of Gaiatri Yoga Training and Co-Creator of SoundMind Meditation. She has taught yoga, alignment immersions, and teacher mentorship programs internationally since 2003. allybogard.com
