Laruga Glaser Purple Valley Tenerife

Dive into the heart and soul of the Ashtanga yoga practice under the inspiring guidance of Laruga Glaser and team of highly qualified assistants. The one month course will be a complete and comprehensive program offering foundational grounding for new students as well as progressive techniques for experienced practitioners. Our goal is for beginner students as well as experienced practitioners to benefit from the retreat, ultimately guiding each practitioner into the heart of their potential. In this regard, the retreat program is designed to harness the full capacity of each guest no matter what level.

Each morning will be devoted to Mysore practice, except for Led class on designated days, beginning with seated meditation and silence. Beginner students will be well taken care of especially in the early stages of the retreat to garner greater confidence to be self led under the guidance Laruga and the assistants. For experienced students, all will receive full support in helping strengthen and deepen their existing practice while working through challenging aspects of the sequences.

About the teacher

Laruga has been practicing Ashtanga yoga continuously for over 25 years. Starting in the beginning of her 20s, she was immediately drawn to the practice after working with other forms of yoga years prior. After establishing a committed practice she then deepened her studies traveling to Mysore, India annually to practice at KPJAYI where the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois taught and now his grandson, R. Sharath Jois teaches. Laruga has made more than 14 trips to Mysore and is on a mission to continue to learn and grow as a student as well as a teacher. She is one of the few in the world who have been given the distinction of being certified to teach up to Advanced B, which is not easily given and takes many years to earn. Through it all, Laruga teaches as an act of deep sharing and love for what yoga develops in each individual, facilitating space to open, challenge, and inspire those to realize their inherent potential, and has been personally invited all over the world to do so.
