Ladan Soltani Weekend Yoga UK Program

This retreat attracts every level of practitioner. Ladan Soltani always has a mixture of people attending. She can cater for beginners to advanced. The style of yoga varies too as she has trained in quite a few disciplines, such as Sivananda (Hatha style) and Ashtanga. She really works with the feel of the group and meets the needs and requirements of her class participants in that moment, adapting with modifications or more challenging versions of the postures for those who want the option.

There will be morning yoga classes with more gentle evening sessions, followed by guided mindfulness meditation, pranayama (ancient yogic breathing techniques), and deep relaxation (yoga Nidra). You’ll start with a 2-hour yoga and meditation session on Friday night to ease you into the weekend, followed by dinner. Yoga will be held in the ballroom. In the classes, Ladan Soltani will be giving personal adjustments to correct postures and guiding you through the breath (pranayama) and meditation.

On New Year’s Eve, you’ll be doing a Manifesting Your Dreams NLP workshop in the evening, to set your inspirational goals for the year ahead. You’ll see the New Year's with a seated candle ceremony and celebrate with some bubbly afterwards, to keep those fireworks crackling within!
