18-21 February 2022
starting Friday afternoon and ending Monday before lunch
We will spend 3 days of practice together, surrounded with ocean and forest views on a quaint hill-top on the south of the island. Designed by a leading architect, the retreat is constructed with Tasmanian timber and it features high ceilings, floor to roof glass windows which paints the whole place in natural light and offers an expansive view of the bay and beyond. The retreat sets itself on 25 acres of private land, surrounded by nature and native wildlife.
The retreat is situated approximately one hour south of Hobart and the airport and I am happy to help organise transport to and from the retreat.
All meals will be vegetarian, delicious and nutritious and thoughtfully prepared mainly using fresh seasonal produce. We can happily accommodate most dietary preferences, including gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan.
A rough plan for the weekend classes includes a gentle asana practice on the Friday evening, morning Yoga Asana Practice, meditation and pranayama practice, two afternoon workshops, evening meditation tuition and practice. This program offers a great opportunity to develop or deepen a meditation practice to complement your asana practice.
The number of participants is very limited. If you are interested, please let me know as soon as possible.
Included in the price are all classes and workshops, accommodation and all meals.

About the Teacher
Gabriel Stinga Rihani
KPJAYI Level 2 Authorised
Gabriel began practicing yoga in its various forms in 2003 and in 2008 he began a dedicated Ashtanga Yoga practice. He has a background in Buddhist meditation that together with Ashtanga yoga, forms part of his sadhana.
Since his first trip to India in 2007, Gabriel has spent a large portion of time in India learning directly from his teachers. In 2009 Gabriel began studying under the guidance of Sharath Jois at KPJAYI in Mysore. After four extended study trips, he has been authorised Level 2 to teach the full Intermediate Series. In his second trip to India in 2008 Gabriel met his Spiritual Teacher, the great meditation master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche which has ever since served as his main guide and mentor on his personal path. Gabriel also spent extended periods of study over several years learning from certified teachers Rolf Naujokat and Louise Ellis.
Teaching Ashtanga Yoga has previously taken Gabriel to Sweden, Portugal, Spain, France and Germany. He is currently teaching a Morning Mysore program for Qi Health and Yoga in Manly, Sydney, Australia.
