Yoga retreat on Clare Island, Ireland, with Yogacharya Venkatesh and Hema
8th - 12th August 2012

The teachers

Hema and Venkatesh 

Venkatesh is a very advanced practitioner from Mysore, South India, where he runs his own school of yoga. He is well-known for his precision, dignity, discipline and ability to handle students of all levels. He has developed his own system which comprises ten series of asana, which he calls Atma Vikasa. Students of all levels of practice and experience are catered for.

Though he is an expert in all aspects of Yoga, his special and rare expertise is in back bending asanas. He has been running special courses on flexibility improvement for many years and has earned for himself the title of "rubber yogi".

These courses are Venkatesh only residential workshops in Europe this year, and we are honoured to host such a workshop at our centre. He will be assisted by his wife Hema.
