Laruga e David – Ashtanga Yoga Retreat – 1/10 Luglio


has been practicing Ashtanga Yoga continuously for over 23 years. She has made more than 14 trips to Mysore, India, at KPJAYI where the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois taught, and where now teaches his grandson, R. Sharath Jois. Her mission is to continue learning and growing both as a student and as a teacher.
She is one of the few teachers in the world, who has been awarded the primacy of the certification for teaching the Advanced B series, a very rare privilege, which requires years and years of hard and humble work, as well as an immense dedication to the practice also as a lifestyle.
Her profound belief in what she does and teaches, is breathed and felt so strongly, during her classes, that the student is inspired, motivated and intrigued to explore and challenge all the transformative power that the practice offers.
As if to say, a real school of life.


starts practicing Ashtanga yoga in 2006, in 2008 he embarks on his first trip to Mysore, India, practicing with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and R. Sharath Jois. David is a person of great depth and sensitivity, perhaps, also thanks to his inner research work, that dates back to his adolescence.
His dedication to ashtanga practice led him, in January 2011, to receive the Level 1 Teaching Authorization from his teacher R. Sharath Jois.
David is particularly gifted and expert at interacting and motivating absolute beginners, those who have never even done yoga. He often assists Laruga in her retreats and workshops around the world.

About sardinia
An emerald sea with small and large coves and pure white sand: this is Sardinia, an island that amazes visitors with its natural contrasts, light and colours. A land of ancient traditions, still dominated by wild and uncontaminated nature.
A paradise for people who love the sea, from the night-life of the Costa Smeralda to the peaceful beauty of The Maddalena Archipelago, as well as for active holidays enjoying water sports, trekking and climbing
Other areas have human settlements evolving over the millennia, such as the Nuragic civilization and its nuraghi, the tombs of the giants, sacred wells or houses of the fairies, from the hinterland to villages by the sea.
Located in the heart of the Mediterranean, Sardinia is predominantly mountainous but without high peaks, offering visitors a unique natural environment, that is harsh yet very sweet at one and the same time.
