e84 Immersion Weeks ~ Cabeceiras de Basto, Portugal ~ May 2023
Join us in Portugal for a 1 week immersion into the e84 approach to learning the hot yoga sequence of 84 asanas. This is a chance for hot yoga lovers to alternate a practice of the e84 Intermediate class and the 84 Asanas class every day for 6 days in a row. The e84 Intermediate class is a moderately paced, accessible class that teaches the skills found in the 84 class. It moves much more slowly than the 84 class, and has no prerequisite to attend. These two classes are the heart of the e84 Teacher Training Diploma program.
There will be a morning class each day, alternating between the e84 Intermediate class and the 84 Asanas class. On the days we do the e84 Intermediate class, you are also invited to participate in a Jedi Training session. Except to participate in 3-4 hours of yoga practice each day.
In your free time, we can arrange excursions for you to nearby attractions, or you can simply spend time in nature at the D’Alijo Retreat Centre.
There are no requirements to attend this Immersion Week, however we recommend it for people who are proficient in the practice of the hot 26&2 class (Bikram yoga) and want to expand their practice.
