Mature Yoga for longevity with Peter Clifford
Join the Anahata Yoga family in Portugal for a 5 day retreat geared towards a more mature group. Slow down the ageing process, increase strength and vitality with simple yet effective yoga techniques to enhance the quality of your life.
The program is specifically designed for the young at heart and above 50 years old, with limited flexibility and strength, but that would still like to get the maximum benefits of a Yoga practice.
Peter Clifford has proven in his own personal practice that human ageing is reversible and scientific research shows that we can literally reverse the ageing markers, for example muscle strength, bone density, blood pressure and cholesterol levels etc. We are an amazing network of cellular intelligence, energy, thoughts, emotions, electric currents, organ actions, hormones, nervous systems, tissues, blood and lymph flows. All these elements are interwoven, inter-reactive and capable of transformation through yoga practice.
We focus particularly on the internal aspects of yoga: organ cleansing, tissue pumps, nervous systems, circulation of lymph and blood, releasing psychic knots known as granthis from Sushumna Nadi and pranic blockages from the Nadis, and creating hydraulic and pneumatic pressures within the body to create change. All movements are undertaken with inner conscious awareness, promoting a state of integration of the mind and body.
As you practice this yoga style, you reconnect with your inner reservoir of energy, vitality and creativity. You will return to a younger functioning physical and mental state. Anahata Yoga is designed to enhance the qualities of rejuvenation and longevity, to correct postural imbalances and create vitality and health while promoting the natural abilities of the body to heal, so that it can realise its own amazing potential.
A beautiful retreat centre located just 5 minutes walk from São Julião beach.This is one of the most stunning coastlines in Ericeira.
