Valencia, Spain - Weekend of Workshops

Join me for a weekend of workshops in Valencia, Spain at The Yoga Box!

Saturday Sept 28 - Hips + Inversions

Sunday Sept 29 - Backbending with Strength

HIPS & INVERSIONS | SÁBADO 6 ABRIL 11:30 – 13:30

This workshop focuses on hip opening and inversion techniques designed to designed to strengthen and open the upper and lower body.

The workshop begins with a warm up vinyasa class that will focus on creating heat in the lower body. After the class, students will go into their hip circuit, through a series of repeated hip opening postures. Different variations of each pose will be offered. Each hip circuit will be interspersed with inversions and arm balances designed to compliment the hip opening practice. Students will learn proper shoulder techniques, focal points, and will utilize their bandhas to deepen control and strength during their inversion. Although inversions seem intimidating, this workshop is designed for all levels, and will utilize tools and variations that allow every student to face the fear and disorientation of being upside down. 

BACKBENDING WITH STRENGTH | DOMINGO 7 ABRIL 11:30 – 13:30

We will begin with a strong vinyasa class that includes abdominal exercises, standing postures, and inversions. After the warm up, we will flow into classical backbending postures with an interactive lecture focusing on alignment and technique. To safely backbend, it is imperative that we use our strength and awareness to open the body. In this 2 hour workshop we will focus on using the lower body, the muscles along the spinal column and the breath to open the front-side body and ultimately facilitate the backbend. Mantra and pranayama will also be taught. 

* Both workshops will be taught in English.

Tools + Techniques for Cultivating Joy

A sense of joy can be present in all situations whereas happiness is often fleeting and can end the moment its begun.

In this 2 hour workshop, we will use asana along with deep spiritual practices such as pranayama, mantra, and kriya to create, or build upon a daily spiritual practice. A dedicated sadhana can help us stay grounded and steady instead of subscribing to life’s ups and down’s. When we become comfortable with uncertainty - joy is possible!

The goal of this workshop is to help students apply tools from the practice to everyday life.

Morocco Retreat w Tony + Anton
Feb

to Mar 7

Morocco Retreat w Tony + Anton

Apply HERE

For many of us, our day-to-day reality is a demanding job + daily social obligations.  New technologies that were designed to simplify our lives somehow have added more to our already overflowing plates. Our culture tells us that being ‘busy’ is a good thing: it means we’re in demand + successful.  Whether we see this busy-ness as self-imposed or not, it’s hard to align ourselves with the person we want to be.

When was the last time you felt fully recharged?  When was the last time you had the space to dedicate to the things that you find important? This retreat is specifically designed to realign & re-calibrate.  To step away from our day-to-day dramas, and get a greater perspective on ourselves, our goals, our desires, & our friendships.

At this special Morocco retreat – expect afternoon excursions to the maze-like medina, and sunset meditation in our private riad. Expect rooftop Maghrebi mint tea, and some world-class yoga asana. Expect to create new bonds, share surprising conversations & laughter… and still find plenty of time for self-reflection.

Space for this retreat is limited to 18 students.

ABOUT MOROCCO

Morocco will take your breath away. It's the way Marrakech glows from your rooftop as the sun rises. It's the snakecharmers + storytellers weaving their way through the Jemaa el-Fna Square. It's walking in the literary footsteps of William S. Burroughs and Tennessee Williams. The thrill of haggling for handwoven rugs deep inside the medina. In Morocco, escape to a different world, where you'll sleep inside an opulent riad, camel-ride on the beach, and take in the scent of spices piled up on every corner. For this unique retreat, we'll experience the best of Morocco: we'll spend our first 4 nights in Marrakech, and our last 3 nights in the bohemian seaside town of Essaouira.

Marrakech, Morocco’s most famous city, is so cinematic it almost doesn’t seem real. There are the labyrinthine souks, full of trinkets and treasures; the vendors squeezing fresh pomegranate juice; and the call to prayer that echoes from the mosques at dusk. Yet, only two and a half hours west, Essaouira may as well be a world away from bustling Marrakech. With its barefoot, bohemian vibe, this low-key coastal town has long been a haven for surfers, artists, and musicians (it even attracted Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix back in the day). The seaside enclave is also a major cultural hub thanks to a melting pot of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and African influences. In the heart of town, you could spend a whole day exploring the cobblestoned medina—a UNESCO Site, where merchants hawk Berber-made boucherouite rugs, ceramic pottery, and babouche slippers.

THE RETREAT CENTER

For the first four nights in Marrakech, we've arranged a stunning private Riad in the heart of the medina (pictured above, with the gorgeous tilework). The Riad has 10 bedrooms, an interior courtyard with plunge pool, and the kind of rooftop you dream of on a winter's day. We will have the whole Riad to ourselves. We'll have breakfast on the rooftop each morning, and you'll also have a couple chances to venture into town and taste Moroccan cuisine on your own.

For the last three nights, we're staying in Essaouira, a low-key coastal town town 2.5 hours away. We have a few 90's Mercedes' arranged (the kind with the bouncy leather bench seats + a tape player) to zip our group off to the coast in style. This is your moment to wear that chic scarf and Jackie O sunglasses.

Les Chambres. (the rooms) Each room is unique, with it's own Moroccan charm. Some bedrooms have one large bed, some have two twin beds, and some have three beds. Some rooms have adjoining living rooms, while others have little terraces. Rates vary depending on if you decide to share a bed, to share a room but have your own bed, or opt for a triple. Please keep in mind we are not staying at resort - we are staying at a small private riad and a seaside bed + breakfast. If you are looking for a JW Marriott kind of experience, with central AC and turn-down service, this is simply not the retreat for you. If you appreciate understated beauty, rooftop adventures, the smell + tastes of a different culture, then this IS for you!

La Nourriture. (the food) For breakfast, expect eggs, local cheeses, homemade jams, fresh brewed mint tea, local fruits. For lunch and dinner, Moroccan dishes are influenced by Berber, Jewish, Arab, and French cultures. Expect lamb, chicken, and veggies slow-cooked in a clay pot. Meals are often served with Khobz, the crusty round flatbread cooked in a communal wood-fired oven. The menu items listed above are just to give you an idea! As it is part of Moroccan culture to eat meat, we have asked for meals according to local culture. If you're vegetarian or have any dietary restrictions, the property will happily accommodate you!

How To Arrive. Fly into Marrakech Menara Airport, and we'll arrange for a driver to take you to our private Riad.

Activities. For the first 4 nights in Marrakech, you'll have plenty of free time to explore the medina. At night, the main Jemaa el-Fna Square comes to life, with snakecharmers and the best street food you've ever had. One afternoon, we'll all go to the Hammam together (it's included in the retreat!) for a black soap scrub-down.

What's Not Included? Extras like massage (unless you ask Anton nicely!) wine, 2 lunches + 1 dinner, your international travel, your transfer from Essaouira to the airport at the end of our stay.



DAILY SCHEDULE

This retreat takes place from February 29th - March 7th, 2020. Plan on arriving at the Riad in Marrakech before 5pm on February 29th, and leaving Essaouira after yoga & breakfast on March 7th. (We'll arrange for your airport pickup from Marrakech airport, and you'll just need to pay for your transfer from Essouiera to wherever you're heading. We'll help you coordinate so it'll be smooth.). Each day is balanced between group activities, and plenty of free time to do as you wish. Everything is optional: you can get into as much or as little as you want. Below is a schedule just to give you a general idea (it tends to vary once we actually get going). Whether you want to embrace your introvert, or hang out with new friends - there will be plenty of opportunity for both.

Intelligent, rigorous vinyasa yoga, woven together with breath and mindfulness techniques.

5pm - 6:30pm

Portugal Retreat

to Aug 1

Portugal Retreat

I’ve spent much of the past year discovering new parts of the world, discovering new parts of myself and stepping into my potential. Cocoon Portugal has been a pivotal and very special part of my journey. I can’t wait to show you this magical part of the world! Please join me this summer for a week of yoga, meditation, ocean swimming, skinny dipping, vino verde and getting in touch with our true nature.

Cocoon Portugal is a 275 acre coastal farm + retreat, offering inspiration + community for the modern traveller.  It's also pure magic, where between the oversized hammocks and the freshwater lake, you'll start to lose track of time.   The kind of place where each morning is a celebration, practicing under the canopy of old growth pines, but so is each evening, with world class wine and fascinating dinner conversation.     

Cocoon is situated on the breathtaking Atlantic coast of Portugal, near the charming fishing village of Zambujeira do Mar, in the Alentejo region, which is known for its long stretches of untouched coastline and charming white-washed villages. From Lisbon, it is about a two hour drive south, entirely dependent on how many espressos you’ve had.  (from Faro, we’re slightly closer)  The ocean, with bluffs, trails, and sandy coves, is a 10-15 minutes drive, or a lovely bike ride.

Paris, France - Weekend of Workshops
May
4
to May 5

Paris, France - Weekend of Workshops

Join me for a weekend of workshops at my friend Mathieu Bolderon’s gorgeous school, Lomey Yoga!

Inversions + Arm Balances (Saturday)

This workshop begins with a fun and challenging vinyasa sequence and transitions into a breakdown of different arm balances and inversion postures. The overall concept of Bandhas (energy locks) will be explained but we will focus primarily on AmsaBandha - the shoulder lock, and Hasta Bandha - the hand lock.  Students will first practice incorporating the locks in easier arm balance variations and then will have the option to apply them to more difficult asanas.

 

Inversions help to recirculate lymphatic and spinal fluid resulting in mental clarity and reduced anxiety.  Arm balances encourage students to connect to their strength and overcome fear.

Hips Don’t Lie (Sunday)

We hold a lot of unprocessed emotions deep in the tissues of our body, our hips are one of the main areas that we tend to store old emotional trauma. This 2hr workshop will begin with a healing mantraand a calming, clear and meditative vinyasa warm up. We will then progress into the hip circuit with longer yin style holds. Mula and Uddhiyana Bandha will be used to stabilize and safely open the hips, glues, and inner groins. We will close with a Kundalini Kriya for peace and truth.

Milan, Italy - Masterclass Series April 16 + 17

Join me for my first time teaching in Milan!

I’ll be teaching 2hr Masterclasses at Studio Jyotir on April 16th + 17th from 7pm - 9pm. These classes will include Asana, Pranayama, Mantra and Kriya Yoga.

I’ve been practicing for over a decade and teaching for 8 years. I practice because it allows me to process all of the hidden emotions that are tucked away beneath the surface. I practice because I like to sweat and to me, sweat is an access point for transformation. I know that when I practice I can be a person that I’m proud of. I’m kinder, I’m more alert and I have perspective. 

I teach because I want to connect and because I want to help my students step into their strength with a sense of curiosity and lightness.  

In my classes, we use physical awareness to find our edge and uncover the potential that lies beneath. That’s where the magic happens! Come!

Joy is different than happiness, you have the ability to feel joy through the good times and the bad, and joy can be lasting whereas happiness is momentary. In this 2.5 hour workshop we will focus on finding your joy and staying there. We’ll work with the 3rdchakra (solar plexus) and 6thChakra (3rdeye) using powerful Jupiter and Lakxmi mantras. We will follow the mantra practice with a fun vinyasa highlighting backbends and inversions. The workshop will close with an intention setting gratitude exercise to access optimism.

BALI RETREAT W THE SACRED FIG + ANTON BRANDT
Dec
27
to Jan 2

BALI RETREAT W THE SACRED FIG + ANTON BRANDT

For many of us, our day-to-day reality is a demanding job and endless social obligations.  New technologies that were designed to simplify our lives somehow have added more to our plates (and iCals).  We’re expected to be more available & more accessible, and as each day ends, we find ourselves with just a sliver of personal time left over.

Our culture tells us that being ‘busy’ is somehow a good thing.  We associate being busy with being in demand, sought after, and successful.  Whether we see this busy-ness as self-imposed or not, it’s harder than ever these days to align ourselves with the person we want to be.

When was the last time you felt fully recharged?  When was the last time you had the space to really dedicate yourself to the things that are truly important to you? The Sacred Fig retreats are specifically designed to realign & re-calibrate.  To step away from our day-to-day dramas, and get a greater perspective on ourselves, our goals, our desires, & our friendships.

At this special New Year’s retreat – celebrate with sunrise meditation, and afternoon naps by the pool.  Celebrate with lovingly prepared, nourishing meals every day, and world-class yoga asana, taught by qualified, experienced & inspirational teachers.  Celebrate with new friendships, with sweat, with surprising conversations & laughter… and still plenty of time for self-reflection.

ABOUT BALI

Bali has a certain magic to it. Somewhere between the stunning rice terraces and ridiculous surf… the daily offerings that mystically appear throughout the day, and the ever abundant tropical fruits & flowers.

For this luxurious New Year's retreat, we're getting the best that Bali has to offer. For the first 3 nights, we're staying among the rice terraces at Blue Karma Boutique Resort, one of Bali's most fabulous properties. Blue Karma is situated just outside the small artistic community of Ubud, on the slopes leading up to the volcano. Ubud is the cultural heart of Bali, interwoven with temples, coconut palms and rice terraces in every direction. For the final 3 nights, we'll head to Uluwatu, where we'll stay in a private villa on the bluffs, with our own access to the beach & surf below.

Waking up with the sun, meditating, & practicing yoga seem to come naturally here. Bali is the only island in Indonesia (out of tens of thousands) that’s Hindu, and their culture has a uniqueness all of it’s own. From the temple offerings, to the sound of the gamelan, and that sweet smile that the Balinese so readily share, Bali tends to sweep most of their feet.

Bali is just south of the equator, so it’s reliably hot & sunny. It’s tropical and wet. The largest (and still active) volcano, is considered by Balinese to be the center of the universe.

THE RETREAT CENTER

For the first 3 nights, we'll be staying at Blue Karma Boutique Resort. This stunning property is about 10 minutes outside the town of Ubud. We've led past trainings at Blue Karma, and we're thrilled to come back. Surrounded by rice fields & fireflies, the lush property includes an infinity swimming pool tapering off into the rice terraces, and a gorgeous bamboo yoga shala build on the principles of sacred geometry. The shala is complete with all the props you'll need - no need to bring your mat. The property is interspersed with open-air 'bale' bungalows complete with day beds & pillows, ideal for an afternoon nap or quiet conversation. Expect lovely touches like turmeric tonic at sunrise, herb-infused waters by the pool in the afternoon, and turn-down service for your room each evening.

Each spacious villa accommodates two people very comfortably, and features two twin beds with fine linens, rain showers, air-conditioning, unique artwork, a small refrigerator, and all the amenities to brew coffee or herbal tea in the comfort of your own villa. Some villas feature a private deck or verandah, some have outdoor showers, while others are two-floors.

On a typical day, we'll have breakfast after morning asana, a light lunch, and lovingly-prepared vegetarian dinner. Purified spring water, french-press coffee, herbal teas, fresh almond & cashew milks, as well as various tonics & elixirs are prepared daily. The retreat property is thoughtful with accommodating dietary restrictions.

For the final 3 nights (where we'll celebrate the New Year!) we're heading to the beach! We're staying in a private villa situated high on the Uluwatu bluffs. We have a cliff-front pool with gorgeous sunset views, and direct access to the beach below. When we're staying in Uluwatu, we'll have two meals per day: a late breakfast feast and early dinner, so that those who want to adventure out have plenty of time to explore. If you're feeling adventurous, join Anton for an afternoon surf!

DAILY SCHEDULE

This retreat takes place from Dec 27, 2018 - Jan 2, 2019. Plan on arriving at Blue Karma in Ubud anytime after 2pm on Dec 27th (our first yoga class as a group is at 5pm in Dec 27th), and leaving after yoga & breakfast on January 2rd. (We'll help coordinate your transport to the airport). Each day is well-balanced with asana, healthy meals, and plenty of free time to spend as you wish. There are lots of optional activities, and you can get into as much or as little as you want. Below is a schedule just to give you a general idea. Whether you want to embrace your introvert, or hang out with new friends - there will be plenty of opportunity for both.
