14 Nov Lake Como Escape
“Yoga is not a posture, is an attitude.
Yoga is an expression from the inside out. The external expressions of the poses are merely a reflection of what you cannot see: your creativity, your heart, your awareness, your intention, and your attitude.”
We spent 4 wonderful days together with Benedetta Spada and her husband Marc Vincent at the Grand Hotel Imperiale, Moltrasio in Lake Como. Some students flew from Canada, from Holland and other traveled from different places in Italy. Everyone was excited to be here and be part of the retreat.
Our daily schedule included a dynamic morning yoga practice (Pure Vinyasa Flow) followed by a healthy breakfast, some needed rest and then we met to talk about food and nutrition. We had lunch at 12h30 (vegetarian meals) then we had some free time to enjoy the Hotel’s SPA or read or to go and discover the lake. Some of us went went with the boat to Como to walk around and sit at a café and chat between us. Back on the mat at 5h30 for a meditative yoga practice (Yoga Nidra). Dinner was served at 7h45 and we had some relaxing infusion before bed. We loved any minute of our days.
We would like to thank Marc and Benedetta for being with us and being honest and true: “The path of yoga will help you to know who you really are, to accept and love you, and finally to give you the tools to transform your life into wonder, but this will depend on you, your beliefs and your choices.”
Thank YOU to all the wonderful people I met during the Lake Como Escape, I’m deeply grateful for the time we spent together.
Till next time.
