Wander into Your Wild: Jivamukti Yoga Retreat
April 7-11, 2016
Join Jivamukti Certified Teachers Dina Ghandour and Maria Pamoukian on a journey to practice yoga at Feynan Ecolodge, chosen by National Geographic as one of the best 25 ecolodges in the world. Set against the backdrop of a beautiful Jordanian desert landscape, spend four days in an idyllic environment that will enhance your connection to the practice, to yourself, and to the natural environment.
First meeting in 2011, Dina and Maria developed a great friendship, reuniting in 2015 because of their passion and dedication to the Jivamukti Yoga Method. Between the 2 of them, expect challenging and fun classes, infused by their fine humor and nurturing presence. Using the rich desert as a vast expanse for growth and possibility, you will be guided to a deeper sense of self.
Maria is a certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher (Jivamukti Yoga 300-hr, 2011) and a Health Coach (Institute for Integrative Nutrition, 2015). She teaches the beautiful harmony of linking intention, breath, and movement in a comprehensive yoga practice.
