F LY I N G & F L OAT I N G Y Wo r d s : L y n n N i c h o l s o n oga To Go have gone through a revamp! New logo, new website and some incredible new locations added to the list of retreats and teacher training courses. Behind the scenes, Melissa Farrer, owner and operator of Yoga To Go, has been working tirelessly to create the new look and to personally select the venues for upcoming events to ensure that everything is perfect. Melissa explains “Yoga to Go bases their daily Ashtanga yoga practices on the ancient system of yoga popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois. Our practice incorporates the Ashtanga series from primary through the third sequence. Ashtanga is a dynamic series of postures (asana) combined with strong breathing (pranayama) that exposes the student to a powerful flow through all levels of ashtanga. Perfect for building extraordinary strength, the practice focuses on core work, balances, and inversions. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is different from many yoga classes utilizing a defined set of postures. A practice will comprise of five main parts: an opening sequence, standing series, balancing sequence, a set of seated postures and a finishing sequence. Class always ends with savasana, or resting pose. Students of this particular practice are some of the most dedicated around the world! All levels are welcome to experience “flying and floating!” On your retreat we will practice twice a day and incorporate strong core-building Pilates for an incredible and invigorating experience. We can modify every practice to every level.” You have a wonderful selection of venues to choose from, including Positano, Sicily, Florence, Galapagos, Morocco and Belize all of which are beautiful and offer you the opportunity to enjoy yoga with some of the most stunning backdrops on the planet. “Thank you for such a wonderful week of sunshine, delicious food, and lots of yoga. I would recommend this retreat to anyone looking to deepen their yoga practice while enjoying the beautiful surrounding at La Selva Resort.”
