Daily Sessions

7am to 9am:  Rise Strong with Deep Core Flow – Drawing from hatha, vinyasa yoga and somatic movement systems as well as the latest science available in anatomy and biomechanics the principles of Deep Core Flow enhances every style and level of yoga practice, the core techniques and practices apply equally to dynamic vinyasa and more gentle forms of yoga. Deep Core Flow is designed to access the deepest, innermost support structures of your body, offering an inherent lightness, power and support in movement alongside a healthy range of motion and stability. Deep Core Flow cultivates precision, alignment, balance, flexibility, grace, power, strength and stability. Somatic inquiry, breathing and mindfulness practices fuse with slow flowing vinyasa, creating an inquiry-driven exploration of yoga into how your structure really wants to move. Deep Core Flow is an expression of movement that creates deeper connectivity and strength so we may move through all of life with ease, stability and agency.

9am to 10am: Breakfast

10.30 – to 12.30: Dive Deep – Mindfulness Session – At the start of the retreat, these sessions will be about developing the basics of Mindfulness to set strong foundations for open and honest connection with the self. As the retreat progresses, different elements such as the cultivation of loving kindness and different techniques for open investigation will be added in order unravel the limiting beliefs hidden in the deeper recesses of the mind. The practices themselves help to recalibrate the nervous system and restore mind and body as is, but whatever encountered will also serve as the basis of self inquiry and through application in the Rise Strong sessions, help build personalised tools for personal growth.

YOur Facilitators

Han Wee Tan

Having always had a keen interest in philosophy and the esoteric, Han found Yoga through a traditional Yoga Ashram where he trained for 2 years, studying Yoga in all its aspects – as a physical, mental and emotional practice. He then continued to live at that ashram for another two and a half years, developing himself both as a teacher and as a person.

Yoga has since become an important way of life for him, one that is continually leaning towards ease and efficiency, joy and compassion. He believes that true healing and transformation can only happen when we take the self as an integrated whole and appreciate the relationships between its parts. It is this holistic form of Yoga he looks to share through every one of his classes for the nurturing of body, mind and spirit. Han is Co-Director of Teacher Trainings.
