This time I will write about our retreat in Italy.
As with all of our residential teacher training courses the last part always ends with a retreat in nature. Five days in the Italian countryside, this time in the peaceful hazelnut fields amidst the soft bells and sounds of sheep.

私達の主催する『Zuddha Yoga 200時間ヨガティーチャーズトレーニング』のフィナーレは、ヘーゼルナッツの産地で有名なカスティーノという場所で、5日間のマウンテン・ヨガリトリートを行いました。

Every morning we start our regular 30 minutes of silent Yogic meditation, 1hour of traditional Himalayan kriya's and breathing practices followed by 2 hours of asana practice. 3.5hours practice everyday, After which we have light breakfast for small fruits salad and nuts. The time before midday meal is spent practicing while each student conducts their own class as part of the final obligation of the course. Then we have fresh Italian vegan lunch from Karma yogis.

NWe have break in the afternoon where the Italian ladies just chill beside the swimming pool, we don't see anyone study hard, they are too busy enjoying the beautiful view in the country side free and fully relaxed.
The students we all taking great care of Padma, playing with her and keeping good company. She looked very happy during the retreat.

毎朝 30分の瞑想から始まり、呼吸法を1時間、その後アーサナの練習が2時、計3時間半のプラクティスを行います。その後は軽めの朝食、フルーツやナッツを頂き、そこから今度は、生徒達がヨガティーチャーになる為の卒業試験のクラスが始まります。それが終わるとようやく待ちに待ったランチ・タイム!


Before dinner we have one more student class. During the class one of our karma yogi's was seriously engaged in making making amazing vegan pizza's from scratch, It was was great dinner!!
After meal we have kirtan everyday, dancing and singing together, chanting mantra before we get some sweets from our aulter we made together.
This is our day of the retreat!


Last! we had beautiful graduation ceremony.
Our ceremony of zuddha lotus school , we always wear white, which means clarity and purity.
One of our students named Aurelie is working in the Milan fashion industry, she wears COMME des GARSON white dress and is stunning.
We had a wonderful finale in the beautiful green Italian countryside!


Next I would like to write about our vacation in Amsterdam and Paris for mire teaching!
