"The strength of a tree lies in its ability to bend." Zen Proverb
6-9 March 2014
Amangiri’s solitude and awe-inspiring surroundings make it an ideal setting for yoga retreats. The resort’s Aman Spa offers a spacious bamboo-floored yoga studio which looks out onto the sheer face of a slot canyon, and there are also a number of outdoor locations where classes can be held. Amangiri’s resident yoga teacher, Kate Sease, is a specialist in Hatha and pre-natal yoga, as well as injury recovery. She also incorporates pranayama and Qigong into her classes.
Each of Amangiri’s three-day yoga retreats in early 2014 will begin the night before with a welcome reception. There will be three yoga sessions a day for the three days of the retreat, as well as a morning class on the day of departure. Suitable for all body types and levels of ability, the retreats will focus on alignment and feature deep breathing exercises and powerful flow sequences.
8am: Sun Salutations with Energetic Prana (60 minutes)
1pm: Progressive Workshop with a specific dedication every day (90 minutes)
6pm: Restorative Evening Class (90 minutes)
Kate Sease began studying yoga in 1991 as a means to alleviate pain from the athletic injuries she had accumulated over 14 years as a gymnast and runner. She quickly realised yoga was more than a means to help with pain; it was a way of life. In 2002, Kate received her yoga teacher training through Living Yoga at Barsana Dham Ashram in Austin, Texas, and she has been Amangiri’s resident yoga instructor since the resort opened in 2009.
