Ned began his career with a music degree at Oxford before going on to play his own classical textural compositions live at Browns. He later formed the internationally acclaimed band The Egg with his brother Maff, known for their irresistibly funky albums such as Albumen and Something to Do.
As Ned plays, talented teacher Kelly Brooks will be leading yoga and meditation on this live piano ski yoga retreat. Kelly’s nurturing and intuitive Vinyasa Flow teaching style, with a strong focus on alignment, will work seamlessly with Ned’s piano playing to create a dynamic, unique and nourishing yoga experience.
Morning yoga and meditation will warm up key muscle groups and wake up the mind, bringing everything into clarity so that you can enjoy a bold and focused day on the slopes. Evening yoga will concentrate on deep stretching to release muscle soreness and to capture the benefits of the days’ skiing or snowboarding. Kelly’s deep, nature-focused meditations throughout the week will take you on an intense relaxation journey.
Downtime will be spent in the meditation tipi, watching the sunset over snow-capped mountains from the outdoor Jacuzzi, exploring the extensive library in front of a roaring fire, or simply catching up on some much-needed rest.
During this retreat, you will have the opportunity to ski in the French and Italian Alps. Advanced skiers will have the option of skiing to Italy for lunch. Enjoy your time skiing and feel your body strengthen!
