About Event

Join us for our brand new 3-month online immersive yoga programme, with the option to take your practice to the next level at our 10-day retreat in Morocco.

You will have the opportunity to meet and share your experiences with others who are going through the same process, supporting each other along the way through challenges and changes. And at the end, we celebrate together, in person!

We are here to help you do your yoga.

Start date: 16th January 2023

A practical and personalised life support system, helping you develop and integrate a daily yoga practice into life. 

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it” ~ Rumi ~

How does it work?

Across a 3-month period, we will be offering online weekly group classes, discussions and 1:1 support, culminating in our optional 10-day Moroccan retreat.

You will learn on an experiential level, through relationship and real life, the true meaning of yoga. You will be supported, each step of the way, with weekly group classes, discussions and individual 1:1 support.

Whether you are a complete beginner, or advanced in your yoga practice, we work together to help develop the best practice for you. As you grow, we endeavour to make you feel nurtured, nourished and supported to allow you to be more peaceful, harmonious and loving with yourself and others.

Each week, you will receive:

  • Guided group yoga class.

  • Group themed discussion.

  • 1 private 1:1 session.

  • Group Yoga Nidra session.

  • Optional morning practice space in our zoom room Monday - Friday.

  • Recordings will be available for every session if you are unable to make it live.

  • And at the end, we celebrate together, in person, in Morocco for a 10 day immersion to go even deeper into all you have learned, to solidify all that you have integrated within your daily life in the 3 months.

“A brilliant and generous concept. The Intimacy Project is a brilliant and generous concept, led from the heart to support both body and spirit. Each person's experience is individually tailored to their own needs. Ana and David bring both a serious attention and a great lightness of touch to this work, to provide you with the most bespoke of life-enhancing programmes.”

Morocco Retreat:

  • In Morocco you will deepen your understanding and receive further teaching on the following:

  • Vinyasa Krama, the art of appropriate sequencing (which includes more than asana);

  • Freedom of expression with movement and voice;

  • Learn how to shape Yoga to the individual, not the individual to Yoga;

  • Understand subtle anatomy and how breath and bandha are engaged to create correct alignment naturally;

  • Asana, Pranayama, Meditation;

  • Yoga Philosophy; Chanting; Yoga Nidra; Ayurveda; Womb Wisdom

What can I expect?

  • Over 3 months, you will learn and develop your own personal yoga practice, specific to your life and your needs. You will be supported, each step of the way, with weekly group classes, discussions and individual 1:1 support.

  • You will learn how to integrate and work with a daily practice in life, working through stories, patterns, and judgments that are no longer serving you, to see that they are the fuel for the fire of a loving, caring life.

  • Learn the principles and application of Hatha Yoga to increase energy, relieve physical pain, and work with habitual patterns that create dis-ease

  • Explore Krishnamacharya's essential principles of practice, working with the breath to explore how asana, pranayama, meditation, and life are a seamless process.

  • Find direction in life by bringing focus, awareness and mindful presence to every day.

  • Understand that asana, pranayama, bandha, meditation, and chanting are practical tools for the individual to open a dialogue with the heart.

  • Deeply relax into your own body, and feel the intrinsic beauty of your own nature.

  • Feel the support and a sense of community by connecting with other genuine practitioners from around the world who wish to live a balanced, harmonious and caring life, that's good for ourselves, and good for others.

  • You will have the opportunity to meet and share your experiences with others who are going through the same process, supporting each other along the way: difficulties, challenges, changes.

What style of yoga do you teach?

  • This programme is not in any particular "style" of Yoga: it is the essential principles of body and breath, as taught by Krishnamacharya. You will be able to apply these principles to any style or level of Yoga you wish to practice or teach, to make all Yoga personal, effective, enjoyable and safe. All bodies and backgrounds are welcome.
