Expect yoga sessions to be energising, fun and dynamic flow style. Sessions will awaken, strengthen the body and minds. We will move from one asana to the other linking each pose with our breath. Every session will be quite different composed of creative yoga asana sequences where strong focus will also be given to learn the sustainable postures in order to be able to practice yoga individually after the retreat as well as how to prevent injuries.
Sessions/workshops will include: 'Why Mobility and Active Range of Motion is important in Yoga practice'; Stabilising and Strengthening our Lower Bodies; Safe shoulder, Chest opening & Back Bending practice; Deconstructing more advanced arm balances, such as crow pose or flying pigeon and more.
Expect to playfully challenge yourself and learn something new every day!
Inga completed her 200 hours training in Sampoorna Yoga School in Goa, India. While the training was a combination of Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga, her passion truly lies with the creative aspects of Vinyasa Flow; playful sequences, evolving practice, sustainable movements, the power of syncing the breath with movement.
Always a student herself, she continues her development with Jason Crandell and has completed his programs on “The Art of Yoga Sequencing” and “The Art of Teaching Beginners”. She teaches in London and now over 1000 hours of teaching experience under her belt. Her goal with teaching is to help others deepen their mind-body connection and discover for themselves how anything you find through yoga, be it inner strength, presence, stillness, peace, balance, is never new or created - it was there all along.
Ieva Luna - the founder of Moonlight Yoga Retreats, received her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training certificate in India and was deepening her yoga practice in Indonesia and China for several years. She has also completed a 12 hour training of 'Yoga as a therapy for Back Problems', 15 hours of Contemporary Yoga Flow training with A. Hocke and A.
