Stephanie Quirk

20-23 October 2018

Stephanie's teaching so clear and so penetrating helps to understand not only the effect of āsanas on the inner organs but their effect on both nervous system and mind. Stephanie's capacity is to transmit in a very accessible way the experience of her assistance to Guruji and Geetaji  at the medical classes in Pune.

This workshop will consist of two parts. Day 1 and Day 2 will be dedicated to the emotional and mental wellbeing, Day 3 and Day 4 will be dedicated to cancer, how to build the practice before and after treatment.

The workshop is open to the teachers, teacher trainees as well as to the experienced students which don't need an explanation for how to do the basic āsanas.


COST of the first 2 days 250 (€ 160 for the workshop, € 90 for food, including three meals a day not refundable if not consumed) for the total workshop  450 (€ 270 for the workshop, € 180 for food, including three meals a day not refundable if not consumed). 


THE RETREAT takes place at a farmhouse called "Azienda Agricola Montauto" near Rapolano Terme. Rapolano Terme is a town located in Tuscany, Italy between Siena and Perugia

The yoga room is one of the many buildings on the property which has been restored with wooden floors and a view facing the surrounding hills. Food is prepared by our vegetarian chef, Saro, who puts together nutritionally complete and delicious meals which are thoughtful and appropriate to the yoga practice.
