Casalborgone is situated in the foothills of the Italian Alps. Our morning sitting is outside on the terrace under blue skies. Asana practice is in the cool, protected dojo shaded by bamboo forest. The small village is within walking distance.
Our practice includes just sitting, kriya, vayu, pranayama, asana and study. We integrate vayu (the ten vital winds) in pranayama and asana.

Yoga practice is a retreat.  When we stand on our mats, we retreat from our everyday life in order to explore other aspects of our world.  We put some things aside so that we can allow ourselves to focus more clearly.  Then we take that knowledge back to everyday life.

To go on retreat for a longer period of time, i.e. a long weekend, a week, or a month, gives the opportunity to deepen that practice.  We relieve ourselves from many responsibilities like work, shopping, cooking, cleaning up and social activities.  We can relax into a rhythm of practice, sustenance and rest.  Nature supports this process.
