Midsummer Ashtanga Yoga Retreat with Balu Thevar
Balu Thevar is coming to Sankalpasicily for the second time around to share his profound knowledge of the Ashtanga tradition. Balu has got a truly unique way to transmit the Ashtanga Yoga system to his students, firm and lovable at the same time.
Balu’s journey with yoga started 13 years ago when he was introduced to his mentor, Swami Kuttiyand, by his father, Rajendra Thevar. He practiced under the supervision of Swami Kuttiyand for 4 years and then became an assistant teacher for his mentor. His journey continued in Varanasi, Rishikesh and for several years in Mysore where he continued to teach and attend classes. In 2009, Balu opened his own shala, Sadhana Yoga Shala in Arambol Goa. Balu believes that our body is a gift and a vehicle that we use for our journey through this life. This journey provides an opportunity to become a better person and thereby find our true self.
SankalpaSicily is a project for life. Two years ago a seed was planted in Rishikesh India. After our adventure in the summer of 2017 where we organised 3 retreats we are now dedicating more energy into this project we strongly believe in. We, Francesca and Sara, both share a deep love for Ashtanga yoga and the sunny island of Sicily. We can’t wait to meet you and make the most out of your stay here in Sicily.
We believe that with great teachers, ambiance, food and with our dedication all combined we are delivering a 360 degree retreat experience.
