Yoga begins with mental preparation and continues with physical exploration.

People see yoga as a physical practice but even more so it is intended as a mental one.

The practice of yoga is given in 8 steps by the Sage Patanajli in the Yoga Sutras. Yoga begins with Yamas and Niyamas as the first and second steps in the practice. The yamas and niyamas set the tone of practice and provide the rules and guidelines to follow to ensure the practice of yoga is fruitful. These first steps are presented to prepare us mentally for the challenges of the following steps. Like the other limbs they are intended for repeated and continuous practice. The study and application of the yamas and niyamas help to mature our understanding of the 8 limbs of yoga, of our interactions with the surrounding world, and the nature of ourselves.

Wellness & Yoga Retreat with Yuko Sugeta and Dominica Serigano

June 3(Fri)-5(Sun) in Shimoda, Izu

This 3-day retreat centers on health, happiness and learning to view ourselves holistically. In several sessions beginning late Friday afternoon, we will study our anatomy, both from eastern and western perspectives, and practice yoga, including asana, restoratives and pranayama.

Yuko Sugeta will teach about the 12 meridians of the body and self-massage techniques that you can do to target acupoints. We will also learn about the connective tissue of the body and its role in eastern anatomy. Centering on the energetic body, eastern anatomy is functional and integrative. Western anatomy is organic and physical.

Dominica will teach the yoga classes as yoga practices affect both the physical and energetic bodies. We will explore how to integrate this understanding to experience more holistic lives.

The weekend is designed to be both educational and rejuvenating. In addition to learning eastern anatomy and yoga practices, you can enjoy the onsen at the Shimoda View Hotel, the surrounding nature, connect or reconnect with people that share a passion for healthy living, and renew your commitment to learning ways to maintain wellness for yourself and the ones you love.
