RECEPTIVITY – A YOGIC EXPLORATION WITH PAMELA

Peru

Highlights

Daily Yoga Practices Despacho Ceremony Guided Hike to Local Waterfall

Overview

 

Join Pamela Nelson for a Yogic Exploration of Receptivity in the breathtaking Sacred Valley of Peru. Become more receptive to your inner Self through the ancient art, science and philosophy of yoga. Pamela is an Iyengar practitioner and teacher who teaches a full range of yoga asana, pranayama, and meditation.

By becoming more receptive we are more open to receive fully with our heart and minds the joys yoga can bring – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually during this amazing week.

Through the progression of the week, you will not only gain more strength and flexibility in the physical body, but let go of stress, tension and negative thought patterns that you no longer need to carry.

Exploring and moving from the external to the internal landscape is truly the art of receptivity. Set your intention for healing, transformation and becoming more whole hearted in 2021. Join us in the Sacred Valley of Peru!

“Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.” B.K.S. Iyengar

Sacred Valley
€1562 Per person per stay
The retreat center’s name translates as “love from the ancient forest.” It is nestled in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees, nourished by a magnificent waterfall in the Sacred Valley of Peru. This lovely spot is in the Andes Mountains and home of the twelve mountains known as Apus—“luminous beings.” Those who come to the center have the opportunity to commune directly with these mountains, as well as with the local curanderos and pacos (healers), who engage with us for ritual and Despacho ceremony. The guests at this center enjoy delicious meals with locally-grown and lovingly-prepared ingredients. Each guest room is a reflection of the Peruvian culture of the Sacred Valley. The entire center embodies kindness, love, and wholeness that seem to permeate the magical place.

Instructors

PAMELA NELSON

Hello! My name is Pamela Nelson. I am a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher at the Junior Intermediate II Level. I live in Christopher Lake, Saskatchewan on a small acreage with my family. This is my second international yoga retreat with True Nature Travels and I am so excited to be heading to Peru!

I completed my degree in Land Use and Environmental Studies and Physical Geography from the University of Saskatchewan at around the same time I started yoga and found that yoga helped me keep a deep connection to the earth and keep focused on the health of the earth and how amazing it is in the many ways it provides for us and teaches us. I started in my early 20’s, and my intention at that time was to use yoga as a way to increase flexibility after long runs or bike rides. I quickly realized how beneficial it was to not only my strength and flexibility, but also my mental well-being. I love the openness yoga brings to the body and the quietness to the mind. I have found it helps with confidence and personal self-acceptance. 


Since those early years I have become a member of the Iyengar Association of Canada (IYAC) and certified at the national level. I have practiced yoga for over 25 years and taught for over 14, training exclusively in the Iyengar system. I have completed the rigorous and lengthy training program receiving my Introductory II certificate in 2010. Since then I have achieved my Intermediate Junior I and II Certification and am intending to proceed to the next level in 2019. I stay current by regularly attending Iyengar yoga classes, workshops and intensives held by senior international IY teachers, including travelling to Pune, India to study with the Iyengar family in 2013 and 2018.


I teach all level of classes including Beginner, All-levels, Intermediate, Iyengar Flow, Gentle/Restorative, Backs and Joints, Senior/Modified and Youth and Kids. I love teaching yoga in a way that is accessible to all and to continue In the Light of Guruji’s work.
