Luxurious en-suite rooms are set around a courtyard adjacent to this yoga barn. They combine rustic charm with funky modern twists and all have under-floor heating and huge windows which flood the rooms with natural light.

Each day, you will gather together for 6 hours of practice to shift your awareness inwardly, holistically, and mindfully.
