Imagine practicing yoga gazing out into infinite shades of turquoise blue sea and sky, surrounded by the awe-inspiring sights and sounds of the bright and colorful nature of the lush tropical paradise which is beautiful Barbados?! Retreat from the world, take time for yourself and nourish from the inside out with twice daily yoga, healing massage and divine and delicious food…
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, strengthening our core and opening you to life's flow. Throughout the week, you will explore many ways of saluting the sun, not only on the mat, but on the water, on the sand, and at the table.
The week’s program will include daily meditation and pranayama, and the morning’s Vinyasa Flow is balanced with an afternoon Yin session. Add to this soothing massage and food which is healthy and healing as well as divine and delicious, and you will be feeling fully alive and well in every way.
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.
