Building Posture From Awareness: Iyengar Yoga and Meditation

November 03 - November 05, 2023

Lucienne Vidah

Mitchell Owen

Lucienne Vidah and Mitchell Owen will lead seven sessions of asana and meditation respectively. Through asana the body becomes a firm, stable and intelligent structure, the breath moves freely and the brain can relax. When a posture is aligned, the mind naturally settles. The grounds are fertile to enter a meditative state. The meditative state becomes a deeper process of undoing.  Come and (re)inspire your practice on the beautiful grounds of Menla and enjoy wholesome delicious foods.
Requirements: 6 months of continuous yoga practice and ability to deal with your injuries. The Ahimsa Studio is outfitted with all props and rope walls.
The fee of $548 includes meals and access to Menla’s grounds but excludes accommodation. Please book your accommodation outside Menla in advance!
