Workshop started from:
The Saparella Reserve is one of those unique places on earth which, once reached, shape the perception of happiness and leave an unforgettable memory…
Here, you will be connected to nature at every moment: all your senses will resume their innate function to pass on forgotten sensations, from sunrise where we will indulge in the most beautiful of all Yoga practices, to sunset where we will retire to our tents installed under the trees.
Your body and your mind will be inhabited by a feeling of well-being, calm, relaxation and the happiness of finding back yourself …
Here, on this island, our aphorism: « Yoga is a journey which destination becomes the journey » takes on its full meaning.
With our team of teachers, instructors and providers, we spent several months developing this course, between an authentic practice of Yoga and the discovery of what we hold as the most beautiful of all the islands in the world: Corsica.
This one-week retreat, will be led by Patrick Frapeau. It is conceived for both, beginners as well as experienced practitioners.
Patrick Frapeau is the founder of Mysore Practice in Paris, “Authorized Teacher Level 2” by the KPJAYI (Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute). First a student of the illustrious Pattabhi Jois then of R. Sharat Jois, he has been teaching Yoga since 2005.
Convinced of the immense power of resilience of Yoga, he has developed his teaching to touch many people, including in penitentiary centres in France. He also travelled to Iraq to train psychologists to accompany refugees through the various techniques of this age-old philosophy.
Patrick Frapeau is a great Master of Ashtanga Yoga. He is known for his pedagogy, in his way of sharing the techniques as well as the wisdom of Yoga.
During your stay, he will offer you an immersion in the Mysore Style, the traditional practice of Ashtanga Yoga, as it has been practiced since its origin in Southern India, in Mysore.
He will also lead thematic and practical workshops based on a series of postures, pranayama, meditation and philosophy.
As a certified Iyengar and Ashtanga Yoga teacher and Founder of Lemon & Love Yoga, Antonina Rubina will have the pleasure to assist Patrick Frapeau during this workshop, and to share this privileged moment of Yoga with you.
Our purpose is to offer you a unique experience marked by excellence and simplicity: a journey where body and mind are one.
We have chosen the Saparella Reserve, one of the most extraordinary places on earth, for this fusion between Corsica and Yoga .
There, you will experience the practice of Yoga in a breath-taking paradise setting.
Total escape, full awakening of the senses and awe are guaranteed.
