Yoga is a practice of a series of slow movements that target and exercise every muscle in the body, leaving you with more awareness of how you are feeling, both physically and mentally. Every human body is different, therefore there is no perfect pose. Within the class, you will learn your own boundaries, and find out what may challenge you, what frustrates you and why, and in the end, discover your yoga.
This yoga style focuses on the breath through flowing postures, which enhances your core strength, balance, and flexibility. It also helps you to improve stamina, reduce stress, and boost energy levels. The emphasis is placed on developing correct breathing and learning principles of movement which protect and strengthen the body.
This class focuses more on relaxation and restoration. As poses will be held for longer than with most yang style, it will help you to deepen your normal practice by enabling you to understand how to listen to your body, finding that point of resistance within, and overall extending your flexibility gradually.
By having the combined two yoga practices, you will gain these following benefits for your body, mind, and soul.
On Saturday, you will take a ferry to Bere Island and hike to the lighthouse overlooking magnificent views of the Atlantic. There is also alternative shorter walks on the Island should you prefer to take.

"Hi Linda. Just a quick email to thank you sincerely for making the yoga weekend so special. The venue in the Park Hotel was superb but it was your amazing energy and inputs which made it so memorable. Your professionalism, your knowledge and your warm personality guiding us through our yoga practice is what made the weekend different and rewarding. While I am new to yoga I found a whole new side and approach to my practice. I’ve already visited your website and you can expect to find us again booking in one of your holidays/retreats or weekends. We’re hooked already. So once again thanks a million, we really enjoyed and benefited immensely for your work and stewardship."
