YOGA RETREAT IN SICILY

SUMMER 2018

Andrea Gabbi
Yoga teacher
I start practicing yoga at university, in parallel with my studies in philosophy. Unlike the exclusively theoretical research, through practice I discover a path of concrete transformation; the opportunity to experience – whenever I feel the need – a change, in the body, in the mood, in the general state of my being. I practice hatha yoga for a few years and then kundalini yoga. The practice regenerates, makes the body more toned and flexible, and the mind more free and light. But beyond that it reveals to me something more: it is not only a matter of effective psychophysical exercises, but of an applied philosophy, bearer of a real wisdom, able to put man in contact with himself and with his nature, opening it to a more conscious relationship with life itself and with the mystery that surrounds it.

Attualmente lavoro a Roma – presso Le Nuvole.Scuola di Yoga diretta da Paolo Ricci – dove oltre a tenere corsi di hatha yoga, hatha yoga dinamico e meditazione, svolgo attività di docenza in occasione degli intensivi di formazione.

Maria Helena MH OM
Yoga teacher
In 2015 I undertook professional training in Rome with Yoss Giancarlo Miggiano and Beatrice Giampaoli, graduating from the Yoga and Medicine course RYT 200 Yoga Alliance – CSEN. I attend lessons, workshops, in-depth seminars, yoga retreats to enrich my experience and I try to experience daily, in everyday life, the benefits that yoga has given to my life.

The practice regenerates, makes the body more toned and flexible, and the mind more free and light. But beyond that it reveals to me something more: it is not only a matter of effective psychophysical exercises, but of an applied philosophy, bearer of a real wisdom, able to put man in contact with himself and with his nature, opening it to a more conscious relationship with life itself and with the mystery that surrounds it.
In 2015 I decided to return to India for a study trip. Stay for a few months in Madhya Pradesh, at the Paramanand Yoga Institute and Research, and under the guidance of dr. Omanand (Guruji) – academic director and spiritual guide of the center – deepen the study of hatha, kundalini yoga and yoga therapy. In the Paramand ashram I come into contact with the spiritual vitality of India and with the original message of the practice.

MH OM

I approached yoga to satisfy my desire to live the body fully and deepen my inner search. My practice started on the mat even before starting a very precise method or style of yoga, then, about 5 years ago, I met Vinyasa yoga and from there my exploration of the body took the “way of the sea”.

Every asana is for me an opportunity to let me go to the infinite possibilities of the body, overcome the physical and mental barriers, meet me intimately. The mat is my creative laboratory, where the body becomes soft like water and abandons itself to every exterior and interior form, beyond any limit or fear.
