A JIVAMUKTI + SIVANANDA YOGA RETREAT
Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, meditative, and more vigorous ashtanga styles.* Style and class levels will be determined and moulded to fit participating students’ needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore their practice. Classes will be held in gardens of the villa and/or in an indoor space.
Certified yoga instructor, Aimee Pranava, will facilitate the classes, guiding each student focus on improving their practice and gaining new insights into their bodies and movements. She has been studying and teaching 3 main yoga disciplines for over 20 years, concentrating on the Sivananda + Jivamukti Yoga disciplines since 1999. She received her teacher certifications in Quebec and NYC and now she combines powerful movements with more anatomical-based core vinyasa flow in her personal practice and teaching style.
As a management consultant and wellness lifestyle entrepreneur with a panchant for unique travel herself, Aimee lives between NYC and Amsterdam and now travels between the countries, splitting her time with her family back in NYC and her new family in Europe.Not only will she share her love of yoga – but also her love of Italy and the Italian culture.
* Participation in classes and activities is optional throughout the retreat.
