One Month Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Immersion
John Scott assisted by Julia Scott
Palmgrove Beach Resort, Ashwem Beach, Goa, India – LIMITED TO 10 STUDENTS ONLY
John has booked the beautiful Palm Grove Beach Resort and Little Palm Grove Yoga Shala for One Month to create the space and time to give all his focus and energy to just one class of ten students!
Wake up to the sound of the Arabian Sea, stroll along the stunning Ashwem Beach to our Beautiful Beach Side Shala and set your mat down to be in a class of just TEN students.
A one-month journey with TEN students meeting, coming together as one special cohesive group, combining intention and focus to create a transformative transcending practice space, eclipsing ordinary with the extra-ordinary energy of ten to the power of ten, blossom and shine radiant together, an overwhelming long lasting adventure into the nature of why, where, who, what we really are really HERE to DO, in this MOMENT NOW.
John’s mission is to take the group into a continuum of Pratyahara / Dharana – focus for one-month. For John, two weeks is just not enough to make a difference to your practice. So this one-month immersion gives you the opportunity to fully indulge, with your teacher, to look into, with great detail the direction and blossoming of your personal self-practice.
To create the energy and focus necessary for the immersion John will introduce and commence the month by counting the group through* as one mind, one breath, one body-flow resulting as one collective conscious on a mission of change.
One month also gives you the opportunity to give your practice your complete attention, to intentionally direct your full “Power Of Awareness”, to focus all your mental effort to your morning practice without disruption or gaps for One Continuous Month.
An afternoon theory/exploration session will be programed into the week when John sees that the group will benefit by coming together to explore the even more subtle realms of Yoga.
*John will start the immersion by counting Yoga Chikitsa (first series) and depending on the group John may also count Nadiśodana (second series)
