In August 2015, COMO Shambhala Retreat at Uma by COMO, Paro – an intimate resort in Bhutan’s Paro Valley – is pleased to welcome yoga expert Elena Brower. Elena will lead a brand new six-night residential package, focusing on the fundamental yogic tools of asana, pranayama and meditation in the forests of this mysterious Himalayan kingdom.
Elena has studied with master teachers since 1997, and has been teaching yoga and meditation since 1999. Along with co-author Erica Jago, Elena blended the worlds of art and yoga in the roundbreaking book Art of Attention. She has taught classes at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and Central Park, and leads annual international workshops. She has contributed to The Huffington Post, Origin Magazine and Positively Positive and keeps her own blog, elenabrower.com.
The Bhutan retreat is open to both beginners and advanced yoga practitioners wanting to deepen their yoga practice. Elena’s style of teaching weaves alignment-based Hatha yoga and vinyasa flow with a nurturing spirit that can invigorate personal yoga practice. Participants will learn how their posture supports overall wellness.
Using Uma Paro as your base, yoga will be mixed with guided walks through the Paro Valley, including a pilgrimage to the Tiger’s Nest monastery, a national landmark. This package also includes one signature COMO Shambhala Massage with a detoxifying skin cleansing treatment.
