THE EXPERIENCE

The one month course will be a complete and comprehensive program offering foundational grounding for new students as well as progressive techniques for experienced practitioners. Our goal is for beginner students as well as experienced practitioners to benefit from the retreat, ultimately guiding each practitioner into the heart of their potential. In this regard, the retreat program is designed to harness the full capacity of each participant no matter what level.

Each morning will be devoted to Mysore practice, except for Led class on designated days, beginning with seated meditation and silence. Beginner students will be well taken care of especially in the early stages of the retreat to garner greater confidence to be self led under the guidance of Laruga and the assistants. For experienced students, all will receive full support in helping strengthen and deepen their existing practice while working through challenging aspects of the sequences.

The majority of the afternoon workshops will be split into two groups to give more attention to the various experience levels. Level One will be for beginners up to Primary Series practitioners and Level Two will be for those who have started Intermediate Series and/or above.

We aspire to create an environment that feels supportive through every step of the way, garnering a greater sense of renewal, growth and expansion within the one month program and of course for those who participate for two weeks.

PROGRAM SCHEDULE

Please Note: Some aspects to the schedule may be subject to change. However, that will be communicated ahead of time if adjustments are made. Also, if there are questions in terms of what group to be in, feel free to get feed back from Laruga or the other assistants. However, if we feel you are in the wrong group, depending on experience, we will make the change for you. Understand the set up is for everyone to have the best learning experience possible. You will not be missing out on anything when placed in a certain group as we will be covering extensive information conducive to each person both in the workshops and in the morning mysore practices. Also, always feel free to ask questions at all times during our sessions to receive as much clarification as needed to absorb the material.
