A fun, exciting and energetic group gathered to experience Basia Lipska’s week at Yoga Rocks. Ewa Jaros, owner of Ashtanga Yoga Studio, Warsaw, Poland was assisting. Basia’s mum, Sofia, also came and her extreme and unusual healing techniques transformed all who tried them.

Basia conducted morning Mysore style ashtanga classes with Ewa assisting. Some began their Ashtanga yoga journey, most came to advance their practice. Afternoon by the pool yoga, ‘Spili yoga’ which took place in a small town nearby on the back of truck and some serious dancing fun were some of the highlights enjoyed by all.

Basia is based in Norway but spends a lot of time in Poland, often at Ewa’s studio, as well as in Japan. Practice with her if you get the chance and experience some female hardcore Mysore style. There was no taking it easy for Phil and Ian in her classes!

Generally the retreat was enveloped by a nice blanket of fun and silliness outside of class while inside a playful dominatrix ruled 😉

The group was close knit, weather perfect and all left wanting the holiday to continue.

Basia is another teacher we’d love to squeeze back in here when the opportunity arises.
