What level of practice is required to take part in The Yoga Gallery Menorca Festival? Can I participate if I have only recently started practicing yoga?
The Yoga Gallery Menorca Festival activities are suitable for all levels. Of course you can participate even if you have only recently started practicing yoga; what better time to start than with this agenda of teachers!
No, you don’t. The organisation will lend you a mat and a block for the duration of the festival. However, you will need to bring any additional equipment that you feel will be useful for your practice, such as a belt or zafu.
Comfortable clothes. We recommend that you bring some warm clothes to keep you warm after the sessions.
No, you don’t. The organisation guarantees a free water supply throughout the festival.
On Thursday and Sunday, in Es Claustre, the classes will be outside. On Friday and Saturday in Lazareto the classes will be indoors.
Of course you don’t have to do all the classes. You can make your own schedule. Combine it with workshops, talks or yogalabs. Or just walk, meditate or contemplate in one of the beautiful corners of Mahón or Lazareto Island.
The Loop Gallery is a continuous asana practice session of approximately 5 and a half hours with a change of teacher every 40 minutes. You can come and go at any time during the class, although it is recommended (and encouraged) that you come and go as the teacher changes. The mats are in place so there is no need to move them.
These are free, special 60-minute sessions to learn more about asana postures, pranayama, mantras, teacher techniques or the philosophy of yoga. The Yoga LAB will be held in small groups of no more than 12 people. The aim is to learn more directly and deeply with the teacher of your choice. It is essential that you reserve your place for the Yoga Lab.
This depends on the audience attending each session. If it’s in a language you don’t understand, you can ask a member of the organisation to take you to the simultaneous translation area.
