23-29 juillet, 2015 Retraite : LuxYoga Vinyasa in Côte d’Azur

Respect - essential to any solid relationship and the foundation for Isaac and Benjamin’s fifth retreat together at the villa. Yes, mutual respect between these two notorious teachers but more so, respect for the dedication it takes for modern people like you to practice yoga in a mindful way and the deep respect that Isaac and Benjamin share for the traditions of yoga. As creative, broad and unique as the practices during this special retreat will feel, they are rooted in a mutual dedication to the totality of yoga.  Both of these guys are equal parts reverence for the past, for structure and intelligent design, and in their own ways, trailblazers who believe in doing things with joy in a way that simply works. Their classes are fluid journeys to new horizons that while seamless and creative are always rooted in the intelligent container of the fundamental principles of yoga.  This retreat is a symbiotic combination of styles with consistent physical and spiritual themes that ensure a frame of reference for your work. By experiencing excitingly different classes with shared fundamental resonance, you will leave the retreat well on your way to achieving one of the ultimate goals of practice; the capacity to self-calibrate your practice, and thus your body-mind. It is our goal to offer you a practice that will serve your practice in any practice you choose for years following this retreat. We are also counting on some good laughs, great food, fine wine and a dip in the pool after every cleansing class. Isaac and Benjamin's retreats have become known for the special way they challenge incredibly physically gifted yogis while supporting the healing work of newer students and those with injuries. With deep respect for the best in each other, let's have a great week together. 

• Benjamin Sears: master teacher of Dharma Mittra Yoga, Forrest Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Bikram Yoga, USA Yoga Championship finalist and LUX founder and host
