Escaping the chatter: yoga with David Anderson

David Anderson teaches classic hatha yoga: pure, straightforward and joyful.

His practice is wrapped around the breath, whether it is a simple grounding exercise opening the practice, or a dynamic asana challenging the body in a twist, breath will always be the focus.

This retreat offers an opportunity to work hard in a safe and controlled way, with options for longer holds or modified poses as needed. The poses will flow connected in a sequence to work all areas of your body and mind, with occasional stops just to laugh. His yoga is never so serious that you cannot stop to smile, and yet always serious about safety and health.

Share a week of exploration of body and mind (and maybe spirit) with the Yogi-CIO and come away challenged, refreshed and freshly curious about the world. David has taught over 5,000 classes around the world, including at the famous Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh.

There will be twice daily practices of 75 mins, one before breakfast and the other in the late afternoon. He will also give a 90 minute workshop on breathing (pranayama) accompanied with handouts.

The rest of the day will be taken up with excursions to local activities and  landscapes and, of course, time to relax.
