Coming up soon: Jungle Yoga Retreat
We are excited to host an upcoming intensive 5 day retreat and workshop from April 12-17th to give you the opportunity to deepen your knowledge and experience of all the 8 limbs of yoga. All levels of experience are welcome, from beginner to experienced yogi!
Jess Inman, who joined the Tiskita team last year as our in-house yoga instructor and Ayurvedic masseuse and therapist is back again this year! She has spent the last year traveling around Central and South America and increasing her knowledge of yoga and healing.
Jess has a 500 hr yoga teaching qualification in Karuna yoga (Iyengar inspired) and has been teaching regular classes to the public and privately since April 2012. She incorporate aspects of physical postures, breathing, meditation and relaxation into her classes and is able to work with a range of abilities as needed. She also works as an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner which includes many types of Ayurvedic massage and body therapies along with health consultations.
Our idea was to host a retreat which wasn’t just a retreat but where you could come away with a deeper knowledge of yoga as well. A taste of what a Teacher Training would be like. We are hosting this initial retreat this April and will also offer a full 10-day Retreat and Workshop in June with Jess as well (details to follow shortly).
During this retreat we’ll be looking at the depth of the postures, breathing techniques, meditation and more. It will give you everything you need to create more health and happiness in your life!
