Each 10 Day Retreat will have two, 3 hour sessions per day. The morning sessions will focus on pranayama and asana practice, based on Matthew's teaching of Vinyasa Krama and Ashtanga Yoga. The evening sessions will allow for some time focused on different asana technique, depending on the questions each student brings.
