West Coast Retreat Intensives with Ty Chandler & Sharoni Fixler

“Long, uninterrupted, alert practice is the firm foundation for restraining the fluctuations.”
– yogasutra I.XIV

Rejuvenating morning openings, immersive pranayama and energizing afternoon practice with the back drop of the west coast’s natural beauty to unplug from the hustle.

About this Style of Retreat

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.

Participants stay off site and gather together for the practice and partial meals. This format provides more opportunity for personal time and reflection.
