One week Ashtanga Yoga with David Keil in Portugals beautiful West-Algarve. This retreat is an opportunity to dive deeper into the practice of traditional Ashtanga Yoga while taking a holiday at the same time. The Monte Velho Eco Resort is located in a peaceful setting with fantastic ocean views. After Yoga you can chill-out on your terrace and enjoy the view or explore the stunning coastline with it´s sandy surf-beaches and spectacular cliffs.
Each morning will start with some moments of silence and gentle breathing exercises followed by Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Style Practice. In the small group (max. 15 people) each student will be individually supported. Three afternoon classes will focus on deepening your relationship to breath, bandha and the Vinyasa count. We also take time to gain a better understanding of the postures and the human body so you can intelligently move forward even in more difficult asanas.
David has an extensive background in bodywork and anatomy. He is well known for his amazing observation- and adjustment skills which allow him to share techniques that will take you and your practice to the next level. He has a fun, informal and informative style of teaching. With his anatomy, adjustment, and Ashtanga Yoga workshops he has been travelling around the world for many years. David is deeply rooted in the tradition of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and authorized to teach this method by Sri K Pattabhi Jois and R Sharath Jois.
