Explore the Principals and practical applications of Permaculture through mini-lectures and lots of gardening. Learn about the alternative energy systems at Punta Mona as well as explore the deep ecology of jungle living! During this week, we will also explore the relationship with our bodies, slow food and plant medicine. There will be workshops in plant energetics, medicine making and sensory journeys. This week will prepare you for your journey into the art of Yoga by deepening our connection to Mother Earth and her abundance.
We teach Sadhana Yoga- The Yoga of Spiritual Practice including Vinyasa and Hatha Flows
Our approach is contemporary and eclectic. We bring to life the ancient teachings of yoga through accessible spiritual lessons.
Guided group meditation starts at 6:30am and is followed by yoga class. A Daily yoga lesson on theory and philosophy is weaved into the yoga asana practice and applied to our daily living. Yoga lectures cover yoga philosophy, yoga theory, yogic living, yoga diet, yoga anatomy, yoga and business, meditation, kriyas, and yogic healing. Permaculture lectures on soils, composing, seeding, fermentation and eco building will prepare the group for some hands-on permaculture projects. Daily Satsang (wise gatherings) in the evening allow the group to contemplate and reflect on our sadhana (spiritual practice) for the day.
