Opening the Doors of Your Heart

With Peter Clifford

About the retreat

Learn from a teacher with +50 years experience of Yoga practice, dive deeper into the understanding of Yoga (philosophy, meditation, breathing exercises, asanas) and learn valuable tools to include into your everyday life.

Peter teaches a very rare and old tradition of Anahata Yoga, which maintains the opening of the heart chakra as a connecting point between consciousness (Shiva) and Kundalini energy (Shakti) and represents love, compassion, charity and balance.

Peter embodies the qualities of grace, humour, compassion and non-judgement, and provides his students with the tools to apply the philosophy of Yoga to all aspects of daily life. His classes are joyous, opening and transformational.

The “Opening the Doors to your Heart” Series is open for everyone who’s interested in yoga, from students new to yoga but also to the ones who want to dive deeper into their practice.
