Yoga with Shanti and Arainu

This looks like it is going to be one of our most blissful yoga retreats ever... a blend of Sivananda yoga with meditation, restorative and Yin yoga. The teaching will be shared between Shanti and Arainu.

Arainu is returning to teach at Shanticentre for the fourth year and brings with her a love for the practice of yoga. Arainu has been teaching yoga since 2013 after training in multi-style yoga (Hatha, Sivanada, Ashtanga, Restorative and Vinyasa flow) in Dharamsala, India. Arainu’s classes draw from her yoga knowledge to support you in practicing effortlessness and letting go.

Yoga with Shanti

Set in the beautiful Conicella valley with green Abruzzo hills rolling the distance, Shanticentre yoga classes respectfully suit the mood evoked by the natural scenery.

The classes start gently and move into more advanced poses as the body opens up making them suitable for all levels and all bodies. Deep relaxation, breathing and meditation are also taught to give an integral understanding of this ancient tradition we allow ourselves to explore over the week.

Stephanie Shanti has been practising yoga since she was 20 and teaching since 2000. She trained at the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre in Montreal, Canada and has taught classes to a wide variety of clients including children, families, patients in rehabilitation, the elderly and those with special needs.

She has studied many forms of yoga including Sivananda, Integral, Iyengar and Astanga and is qualified in Thai Yoga, Swedish and Indian Head massage. Her classes focus strongly on the importance of breathing through the yoga poses to cleanse toxins from muscles and internal organs whilst maintaining good alignment and control to reduce the risk of injury and stress to the body.

Relaxation is integral to her approach both during the poses and at the end of the practice. The result is increased motivation and stamina, improved internal and external muscle tone and acceptance of the body as it is with an overwhelming sense of inner peace and strength.
