The focus of our retreat is to experience the many flavors of Yoga which come to us from the traditional lineages of Ashtanga-Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Vinyasa Krama, and Buddhism. Typically practiced separately, these systems bring a wealth of knowledge and unique techniques that will grow and enrich any practice regardless of the style of yoga and the experience of the practitioner. Like spices, these systems, when mixed, bring depth and intricacy to the practice keeping it fresh and spontaneous and also reveal the craft of personal yoga practice. Oreste and Linda will switch off teaching every other day so that participants can experience the full flavor of our unique styles.

Next year will be even better than this year!
“In a nutshell, it was all I hoped for and more. None of my pre-conceived notions came to bear on the actual trip at all, and my only disappointment is that I worried as much as I did about things in the first place instead of just waiting for them to unfold.
First of all, we were in the hands of an experienced Indian traveler, Linda-Sama, who did her best to make the entire trip from arrival to departure as easy and effortless as possible. This was Linda’s 7th time to India, so she is well-versed in the customs and protocol that are necessary to get around efficiently and effectively. Her attention to detail was so very helpful, we newbies hardly realized the easy time we had in navigating around Chennai and, later, Varkala. She arranged for rickshaw drivers to pick us up and deliver us to our destinations; she arranged for fantastic hotel accommodations in both locations; she had excellent recommendations for shopping and eating; and best of all, she has a network of friends whose presence helped lend a feeling of warmth and familiarity to this foreign, far-away place.
Never once did I feel that I was unsafe or in danger. Never once did I find myself feeling lost or lonely. Never once did I lack the information I needed to maneuver my way around. Our group was very lucky, indeed, to have Linda’s expertise to lean on. Her leadership is strong and dependable.
If you are considering a trip to India, I strongly suggest that you check Linda out. See if your style of yoga and your personality are a good match with hers, and if they are, just hang on for the trip of a lifetime!” — Jill B., Illinois
