Asana Breath Sound

Back to Breath, Mantra,

and Self-Responsibility

Two week intensive with Jonny and Julia

15th – 29th March, 2025, Purple Valley, Goa

Our immersion is designed to keep bringing us back to breath, back to mantra, back to self-responsibility, while teaching that these ancient techniques of yoga hold the secret to discovery – the discovery that our only responsibility is the ability to respond to all situations in life with awareness, attention, inquiry and imagination. Together as a collective we will discover that from these key responses, the world around us blossoms into the mystical, magical miracle it is to be alive.

The true gift of this immersion is what you will take home, not just a holiday, but a memory that has feeling, a memory of knowledge, a memory that inspires you to continue on your personal path, renewed and empowered

Our immersion will begin with Morning Asana Practice, initially presented as a Counted group class to set the focus and foundations to progress to self-counted / self-directed Assisted Self-Practice. Each morning session will close with a sound relaxation.

We will have 3 weekly afternoon classes, where we together will explore Theory, Technique, Philosophy, Pranayama, Sound/Chanting and Meditation. There will be a strong focus on Self-Empowerment through journeying deep into the enquiry of ‘SELF’ – Hearing Self, Seeing Self and Feeling Self. Reclaiming ones one sovereignty and dominion of Mind, Breath and Body.

From our deep explorations into Self, we will arrive in the coherence of Mind and Heart. Learning how to love our self, in this body and with this mind, and from the moment of acceptance and love, we will reach out to each New Moment, knowing there is an opportunity to celebrate us individually and as a collective to shine and blossom together.
