Doorways to the Self Retreat in Italy with Ally Bogard & Elena Brower

August 25th-September 1st, 2019 - Italy

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 this Luminary School retreat with Ally and Elena, you’ll engage practical and accessible approaches to living your yoga. You’ll reveal your innate radiant energy in order to 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, you expose and clear expressions of dense emotions and focus your energy in 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. For information and to register, visit here

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

Through a quieter inner state, we can work with self-observation, inquiry and contemplation to aid in physical, mental and emotional ease. We will provide practical and useful techniques to build attention and focus in order to create space, choice and self-reflection. For both brand new and more established practitioners of meditation, we will explore breath, as well as tools of self-inquiry and contemplation to help create a beautiful relationship to one’s own mind, personal narrative and choices.

Teacher's Immersion & Live-in w/ Ally Bogard

February 2020 Hamptons, Long Island

For the second year in a row, we will gather for a week of asana, breath, meditation, contemplation, self-inquiry, dreaming and prayer.  Having run teacher training programs for over 10 years, this week will be an intimate gathering of teachers to immerse in the technical, the emotional and the metaphysical wonders of embodiment. We will shape this course together through what you want to learn as a practitioner and as a teacher. Embodiment practices, philosophy, teaching methodology, group processing, and invoking the sacred will all be presented. We will be fed a conscious, vibrant, low-inflammatory, super-food menu all week to be able to move towards the darkest time of the year with inner radiance. Cost is inclusive of the training, all meals, and accommodations for the week. All meals are anti-inflammatory, organic, gf, conscious and lovingly prepared by Lena Elkousy.

Accommodations are in Sag Harbor and Wainscott, Long Island at the Three Suns Retreat Center

We are ready to be like the old ones from the dreams we recall.
