RETREATS

A retreat is where we create the ideal conditions for a more profound practice of yoga and meditation. We make time for reflection and develop conscious attention. We are able to get more in tune with our needs, those of others and the environment. Our retreats explore yoga in a natural and quiet setting. They are ideal for people new to yoga or those already experienced. Retreats can be a mixture of yoga, meditation, discussion groups, chat, leisure and other activities

Teacher's Info

About Asma Al Majed: 
Years ago, I fell in love with Yoga. Yoga has awakened every part of my body, nurturing a relationship of friendship, love and gratitude with every part me. Yoga has brought back to my life the feeling of happiness and joy from my daily yoga practice, breathing exercises and meditation. 

Eager to aspire women by my personal journey, I started teaching Yoga, to share a practice with value, lifestyle, philosophy behind Yoga practice. I've earned my Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Certificate after 300 Hours of Teachers Training Course. Furthermore, I'm a Time Line Practitioner, Choice Theory & Reality Coach, and a QATA Master Coach. I lead Yoga Retreats in all around the world and facilitate intimate women circles.

Each class I teach is a reflection of what Yoga taught me, that is to love unconditionally. This love comes with respect: to respect my body and not treat her like a stranger and to respect her desire to rest when she needs rest. Love that teaches me live the moment and enjoy it. Love that reminds to take things slow, everything will happen at the right time. I look forward to see lives I touch how self-awareness and taking good care of ourselves will lead us. Guiding, inspiring, and supporting until we all become the better version of ourselves.


Fayrouziyat Yoga (Gentle Hatha Yoga)

60 minutes  Gentle Hatha Yoga class provides a safe, effective, compassionate, non-competitive environment that is welcoming to all. This class combines asana, slows rhythmic movement, breathing, and meditation. Infusion of Fayrouz songs, the great Arab singer with an angelic voice, and classical music will be incorporated all throughout the class during the practice. A gentle flow class with series of poses to open and release areas of tension that's open to all levels. This is best for those who want a softer, nurturing, slow-paced, well-supported and relaxing practice. It will be gentle class with slow rhythmic movement to start the day in very special way!
