DEEP DIVE Yoga Intensive with JANICE LIOU


July 20 – 27, 2019

RETREAT DETAILS


Join Janice on this 7-day journey on the beautiful island of Mallorca in Spain! This is a yoga intensive (students should already have a consistent yoga practice before joining and at least a headstand/crow pose in their practice) for anyone looking to dive deep into their practice. We will practice twice a day exploring different types of yoga along with movement principles. Every morning we start with a vinyasa practice to energize the body, mind, and spirit. Every afternoon we dive deeper into learning the technique and theories behind movement disciplines. If you’re a yoga and movement enthusiast who loves to travel as well, this is a perfect retreat for you! Practice, learn, grow, make new friends, and eat amazing food all the while exploring and enjoying the culture/surroundings of Mallorca!.

Tentative Schedule:


Practice will be every day (except for check-in and checkout days) from 9:30-11am and 3-5pm (it may run over some days) this is so that you can schedule additional activities/massages/trips to town. Please give a buffer of 1 hour after class in case we run over.

ABOUT THE TEACHER


JANICE LIOU

JANICE LIOU

500hr YTT certified

Janice is an international yoga teacher based in NJ who first found the benefits of a spiritual practice back in 2007. After several years of practicing calm and stillness, she was surprised to have fallen in love with the physical practices of dynamic movement in 2015. Her classes strive to marry the two - the yin with the yang - to create a balanced flow that is both strong and energizing yet soft and calming. She strongly believes that the physical practice of asana (a sort of moving meditation) translates into practices of mental and emotional wellbeing - that self-empowerment can be found through dynamic synchronicity between breath, body, and mind.

As a teacher, her goal is to facilitate the students' mind-body connection through breath and mindful movement, providing space for students to explore the inner-self on a deeper level. Her creative sequencing is designed to empower students - showing them that there is more to discover within themselves.
