Together they offer Hathayoga, Vinyasa, Viryayoga, Yinyoga, Pranayama, Yogaphilosophy, Meditation, Chi-Gong, Acro Yoga, Myofaschial release and non violent communication. The heart of being on a retreat with Hanna and Surya is the joy and love they share for this practice as well as for each other.
At Palm Grove Beach Resort you’ll be staying in charming bungalows by the beach, practising daily morningyoga (vinyasa) at the shala on the beach with a lovely sea breeze. (1 day is free) In the afternoons we will offer a mix of pranayama, yin yoga, chi gong, and yoga philosophy.
Some evening meditations will be held by the sea. We’ll also have time to visit some markets and nice restaurants in the area.
