Iyengar Yoga Stay at the Palm Beach Hotel****

Iyengar Yoga Stay at the Palm Beach Hotel****

Workshop started from:

1.895,00 2.190,00 

The Palm Beach Hotel**** is located on one of the most beautiful beaches of Corsica, route des Sanguinaires, in the Gulf of Ajaccio. Our idea is to invite you here to share an unforgettable moment of Yoga.

This place immediately gives you the feeling of being at home: it is a very large property set on the sandy beach, with as only decor the course of the sun in the deep blue Corsican sky. It only hosts 14 rooms, each one benefiting from the best services justifying its four-star hotel status.

Antonina has been teaching there for a year now. It is an ideal place for the practice of Iyengar Yoga: the proximity of the Mediterranean Sea coming to marry this white sandy beach creates an extraordinary atmosphere.

This stay will be available in : From 17 to 20 June 2021 . From 23 to 26 September 2021

An Ideal Getaway for a Yoga break

We wanted to offer you something very special. So quite naturally, with the support of the Management Team of the Palm Beach Hotel**** we imagined this new, personalised and exclusive experience, open to beginners and experienced practitioners alike.

During these 4 days together, we shall dedicate ourselves to the practice of Iyengar Yoga.  We shall approach various aspects of this fascinating practice, recognised throughout the world. We will also get to know its founder, the venerable BKS Iyengar, one of the greatest Yogi Masters of the 20th century.

Antonina Rubina, as a certified teacher of Iyengar Yoga, will supervise this course.
She has been trained by Faeq Biria, a disciple of BKS Iyengar and founder of the Iyengar Yoga Centre in Paris.

You will discover new boundaries, through the richness of this style, which is based on Postural Alignment.

Thematic conferences, workshops, vegetarian and vegan meals, relaxation and happiness are also part of the programme.

For our 4-day / 3-night Yoga stay, the premises will be entirely privatised .

The group of practitioners is limited to 15 people to make sure that you will receive all the individual attention you require.

Coming to the Palm Beach Hotel**** to follow our courses is the assurance of discovering a piece of Heaven: an outdoor and indoor Yoga room, a vegetarian and vegan restaurant, a straw hut, a sublime beach… everything you need is here for you to have an unforgettable time.

Located 10 minutes away from Ajaccio town centre, and 20 minutes away from the international airport, with a private parking for more comfort, all the conditions are gathered to guarantee an exclusive moment reflecting our desire to satisfy you.

    • Study of inverted postures and their benefits
    • Study of back bending postures
    • Study of forward bending postures
  1. The organisation of postures in “sequences”.
    The use of supports (straps, bricks, blankets, chairs, ropes…), is an integral part of the “Iyengar process” developed by BKS Iyengar to guide the practitioner.
