On Saturday May 28, I attended the last day of the Love Light & F***ing bright yoga retreat organized by Trainstation Studio and lead by the beautiful international yoga teacher Dee. The retreat was a 3 day relaxing retreat held at Zenotel Wellness Retreat – Bekfaya.
The day first started with a morning Pranayama and Yin yoga class that I absolutely loved. It was my first time practicing this genre of yoga (I usually practice vinyasa yoga). The poses in yin yoga are usually held for longer periods of time so that the stretches are deep. The class was a gentle and slow class that focuses on stretches and breathing techniques.
Dee explained every movement in details first, showing us the posture and the variations available for making it more or less challenging as well as slowly guiding us throughout the flows. What I liked about the class is that Dee placed a lot of emphasis on posture and alignment and was concerned about every single person attending the class.
After the class, we had a ginger tea and fresh fruits break. The socializing time was followed by an intense and challenging “yang” style yoga class that is a part of the vinyasa flow. We explored arm balances, sun salutations, and inversions as well as Mantras and Mudras.
After the relaxing and challenging classes, the retreat ended with a vegetarian lunch at the hotel’s earth restaurant.
I can’t wait for Dee’s next workshop in Lebanon, check out Dee’s instagram page here to stay up to date!
