Yoga Retreats & Holidays

Yoga Retreats

Our customized yoga retreats are held at our residential training and retreat centre in Goa from October until April and in Spain during the summer months. These retreats are an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in traditional practices with an Indian master teacher in these beautiful locations.

We believe that a yoga retreat should leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed with a deeper understanding of your personal practice. Our yoga retreats help you develop and deepen your physical  practice and connection to yourself. We work hard developing the perfect retreat with plenty of attention to detail in relation to scheduling, accommodation & food and most importantly your yoga experience.

Structural Awareness – 100 Hr Massage Immersion Certified Course

January 9th – 21st 2017

Himalaya Yoga Valley is delighted to invite well known Adam Divine and Viriam Kaur to hold their unique Massage Immersion Course at our Centre.

Structural Awareness Technique is a powerful bodywork session unique to each individual – Using fascial release, body-reading, assisted stretches and integration, you will learn a profound massage technique and give your clients the power to heal and understand their own bodies. This 100 hr immersion is a foundation course in Structural Awareness Technique – a massage and body awareness system devised by Adam Divine who is along standing  Anatomy lecturer on Himalaya Yoga Valley 200 & 500 Hr Teacher Trainings.

Conscious bodywork is a conversation between therapist and client – and potentially more importantly the bodyworker initiates a dialogue between the client and their own body – the need to start listening to our tensions, our holding patterns, our armouring – and the liberation we can feel in the physical and emotional body when we stand with awareness.

The course will have a framework of yoga and meditative practices led by Viriam Kaur to help us understand the emotional anatomy, body armouring, brainwave states, yoga nidra, pranic energy and the sympathetic/parasympathetic nervous system. It will help us to develop a deep understanding of our own physical and emotional blocks and the potential to create the space for our own inner healing.

Through this course, you will use your own body as a case study. Looking at your own unique structure and body patterns, where you hold tension and where you can create awareness and transformation. You will learn the tools to help you return to your original blueprint – Adam Divine

Investment – £1300 .

As well as massage techniques, you will look at emotional anatomy, stress responses, trauma reflexes and methods of integration – and Adam will share his insights into body reading.

His original studies were in Ayurvedic Yoga Massage and Thai Massage, but his approach has been revolutionized by working with Anatomy Trains’ teacher James Earls. From working with Anatomy Trains, osteopaths, yoga teachers and breathwork practitioners he has developed a deep understanding of the mechanics of the body and sees subtle awareness as the key to transformation. He specialises in body reading, therapeutic bodywork and myofascial release. Structural Awareness Technique is the culmination of years of study and enthusiasm.
