Heart of Yoga Retreat & Teacher Training

This is not your average teacher training…

Experience abundance, nurturing simplicity, profound community, and Mark Whitwell’s most thorough teachings during two weeks in Fiji’s primordial haven. If anything, this is an ‘untraining,’ where we throw out of our systems all the thought systems and movement patterns that are not serving us, and come into harmony within and without.

“The only reason we choose to do yoga is for the pleasure — the literal pleasure — of our systems relaxing and filling with energy. It is not some struggle to enjoy a future result.” — Mark Whitwell

Mark teaches Yoga from the Great Tradition, as brought forth by the “teacher of the teachers,” Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, rather than any ‘style’ of Yoga. You will therefore be able to apply these principles to any style or level of Yoga you wish to practice or teach, to make all Yoga individualized, effective, enjoyable, and safe.

In the simplicity and wildness of Taveuni, the ‘Garden Island,’ we will explore how Yoga is not just a physical workout, a collection of information, or a “spiritual” workout towards a future, better version of ourselves. It is each person’s direct participation in the nurturing force of reality, as it is appearing as you, me, and everything else. Mark’s teachings give us the practical tools that allow us to feel our own intrinsic joy, freedom, and authority, and share this.
