Retreats for advanced yoga practitioners
We have some course which are more suitable for advanced yoga practitioners.
In general, these advanced yoga courses are stronger in that the teacher will include instruction on stronger postures such as hand stands, headstands, stronger backbends. These advanced yoga courses often include advanced pranayama technqiues which would not be suitable for complete beginners.
Courses suitable for regular yoga practitioners
If one has been practicing yoga for many years and is more advanced in one’s practice and understanding, and more advanced in the more physical practices of asana, and practicing Astanga Primary or Secondary series, or practicing Iyengar for a number of years,
one requires a good teacher who would be familiar with your level of practice, and able to point out relevant adjustments that you should be working on to improve your practice.
Some teachers like
- David Muehsam
- Granville Cousins
- Uma Dinsmore Tuli
- Paul Whelan
- Gabi Gillesen
- Richard Spahn
have all taught many times at the Burren Yoga and Meditation centre, and are well able to take the best of practitioners to other levels.
And many of them are teaching here over the next number of months.
Please view Calendar of yoga holidays to see when they are teaching next.
