Breath-based Online Yoga Retreat

This online yoga retreat will guide you to mobilize your body, breath, and mind - creating the ideal platform for health and wellbeing. Instead of using yoga as another form of workout, this retreat chooses to offer you a practice which is breath-based, and a style that will bring benefit not only to your overall physical health but will also guide you to understand the usage of more exclusive tools of yoga, such as pranayama (breathing techniques), breath guidance while properly doing asanas (postures) and combining it in ways that lead you to the practice of relaxation and meditation practice. Bernardo is the head of yoga and therapy at Plantation Villa and has plenty of experience with physical practices as well as therapeutic work, so you will be amazed at how much yoga can offer when you learn how to move and stay with your breath, in a state of calm attention.

How the retreat works

The program includes a package of 10 online classes and 1 free video with instructions. Instructions are given in the extra video with guidance on safety and quality. All practices include a 40-minute physical practice, relaxation, and 10-minute guided meditation. Each practice will have a different focus e.g. extension of inhalation, breath-holding, hips and legs, twists, etc. The meditations will also teach different techniques. The videos can be downloaded and the students may practice as often and as many times as they wish.

On the first day, there will be a comprehensive live consultation with the yoga teacher and therapist to understand and discuss any physical and mental ailments, preferences, and tendencies. The teacher will then guide and provide an additional personal sequence and will be available for guidance follow up.

Yoga and meditation

Yoga is an ancient tool for understanding of the human system. Even though meditation is nowadays portrayed separated from yoga, it has never been as such in the past. At Plantation Villa, every part of their retreat is leading you to the doors of meditation. This is why their way of teaching yoga to you is breath-centered and aiming at the progressive development of self-awareness.

The practice of yoga should be a well-rounded structure where one element supports the other. The way you move your body is interconnected with the internal movement of the breath, which is directed by the attention of the mind. The health that is gained physically and physiologically is used to experience life in a way that is less obstructed and more suitable for good relationships with yourself and others.

With meditation, you develop insight into the tendencies of your mind and the ways to direct it into more wholesome and skillful states, those that are more in line with a happier life. When yoga is seen as such, as a complete practice, the benefits are unsurpassed.

But apart from the benefits for your body and mind, they always couple their teachings with instructions that are useful for you to lead your own way. With time and practice, and following these bits of philosophy and understanding that they will provide, you can have a clearer path to form your self-practice.
