A Virtual Retreat with Ty Chandler & Sharoni Fixler

November 19 - November 21

A Virtual Retreat with Ty Chandler & Sharoni Fixler

“long, uninterrupted, alert practice is the firm foundation for restraining the fluctuations.” ~ yogasutra i.xiv

Immerse yourself in a weekend of retreat-style practice for recuperation, re-energizing and deepening your practice. This virtual gathering is designed to bring you the experience of an at home retreat with practice and reflection and with the guidance of expert teachers. An opportunity to disconnect from your daily life and focus on yourself. Experience the transformative effects of sustained practice.

about retreat intensives

This retreat format asks us to meet ourselves through sustained practice, sequenced to progressively open the body through concentrated effort and awareness. In the yoga sutras of Patanjali, it’s explained that yoga practice should consist of effort or action, self study and surrender or letting go. He goes on by saying that practice should be for long periods of time, uninterrupted and practiced with love and respect. As yoga practitioners we all face starting, stopping, and restarting, irregularity and procrastination. In these practice intensives we aim to create daily structure, high quality Iyengar instruction and a supportive atmosphere and community.

This style of condensed practice gives time to consolidate what has been learned in technical study. It helps a practitioner break undesirable habits and establish positive ones. Through the process we face ourselves. We face challenges and we also unearth our sensitivity and our strength, our inspiration and appreciation through a committed journey. 

With the focus being more on practicing rather than learning new techniques and collecting more points, one has the opportunity to be in a more meditative state. Being with like minded practitioners creates a supportive atmosphere to assist in going beyond where we go when practicing alone. And finally, we aim to cultivate love and respect in order to stay the course of a lifetime of practice
