The accommodation will be arranged at Holders House, a magnificent 17th-century plantation house. Set in its own stunning grounds on the wonderful west coast of the island, the house has a beautiful veranda looking out to sea, which provides the perfect backdrop for your twice daily flowing yoga practice. It is elegant and comfortable with lots of sumptuous sofa areas for relaxation and reflection, gorgeous dining spaces, and a wonderful pool.
The bedrooms are stylish and comfortable. The decor is Caribbean meets old England and Bohemian chic. There are double, twin, and single options available. Towels and basic toiletries are provided and room cleaning and laundry needs are taken care of by the housekeeper, Joan, and her team.
The sun salutation brings about the harmony of body, breath, and mind in a seamless flow, strengthening the body and opening you up to the beauty all around. You also bow to the divinity within and acknowledge your oneness with the sun and the brilliance of its creation.
Throughout the week, you will explore many ways of saluting the sun in all things, on the mat, on the water, on the sand, and at the table. You will purify, re-energize, re-new, and let your inner sun shine through with a daily dynamic and flowing yoga practice, raw and delicious food, and a soothing massage.
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.
