Instructors

Judith Daniel
Yoga Alliance RYT 500 (Vinyasa Yoga)
Yoga has been a constant in Judith's life for over 25 years and has helped to keep her calm and centered throughout her career in the hectic music Industry. Now an experienced yoga teacher, she’s thrilled to be sharing everything that it has taught her and encouraging people to join her on the mat. Her teaching style is creative and flowing, synchronizing breath and movement (Vinyasa Flow) and the sun salutation is key to this. She loves nothing more than teaching where the sun shines and nature flourishes and helping her students to re-connect to themselves and open to life’s flow.

Retreat location

The retreat takes place on the idyllic island of Barbados. The most Easterly of the Caribbean islands, famed for its white sandy beaches and turquoise blue waters, Barbados is a hot, exotic, and tropical paradise. It is also a coral stone island with a crystal heart and magical healing properties, making it the perfect place to take time out, reconnect with yourself, immerse in nature, and restore balance to body and mind.
