Mysore Intensive summer program with Annette Hartwig

The Mysore Intensive summer program at the Dawn Collective Shala is for everyone longing for a heartfelt connection, some collective rest and a transformative journey. Join us in a small group setting at the Dawn Collective Shala to relax back into a state of wholeness and cultivate a sense of belonging. Spend luxurious amounts of time in nature to replenish the soul and all senses.  Embrace inspiring conversation on & off the mat, in a community which can hold and give space for everyone’s own experience. Sharing nurturing moments of play, curiosity and wonder.

 

The Mysore Intensive is a non-residential Yoga course and students choose and book

their own accommodation. Within a 5 min walk/a 10 min. drive from the Shala there

is a  great variety of accommodation for different budgets & needs. As this is a popular summer destination we recommend to seek accomodation as early as possible.


Arrifana is nestled in the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, well know for its stunning beaches, great surf and the wild hinterland with cork-forests, eucalyptus and cistus.

 

SCHEDULE

The morning sessions begin with embodied meditation & somatic exploration followed by Chanting and pranayama.

 

During the Mysore Style Practice each practitioner will receive individual support from Annette to enrich their practice with more joy, presence and sustainability.

 

Creating a warm loving relational field where the capacity to listen & receive broadens, needs and boundaries are honoured and where we can celebrate our aliveness. Through lenses of dedication, commitment and love the layers of a masked self dissolve and we can return home. Revealing a peaceful state of non-doing, a sense of belonging while skillfully riding the natural currents of life.



 

The Workshop sessions offer contemplation of inner & outer landscapes through asana refinement, functional mobility (FRC®), stress release techniques & journaling, IAM Yoga Nidra, interactive philosophy talks, Sutra and Mantra Chanting.
