On this retreat, you will enjoy two daily yoga classes which focus on movement, breath, and relaxation. The day will begin with a morning class in the light and airy yoga space which includes meditation and practices focusing on breath and alignment to release and unwind long held tensions.
After the morning session, breakfast will be served on the terrace. The group will meet again in the late afternoon to work into a deeper exploration of the poses, or for a more relaxing and restorative class. There may also be some Nidra yoga, depending on how everyone is feeling that day. There will be one yoga free day and the classes will be suitable for all levels and yoga experience.
The instructor is experienced in offering something for everyone with more challenging practices for experienced yogis and guidance for those who are newer to the practice. If you have the chance though, it’s always a good idea to try a yoga class or two before you come away.
This retreat includes transportation to and from local towns in two evenings where you can buy your own dinner.
Catherine discovered yoga as a teenager and has been practicing for more than 35 years. Having explored Sivananda, Iyengar, Astanga, and various forms of Hatha yoga, she eventually gravitated to the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli. Her practice and teaching focuses on deepening physical awareness and alignment to reveal the natural freedom of the body, particularly the spine. She is an attentive and thoughtful teacher, and highly skilled at adapting poses to accommodate all levels and types of students, so that everyone leaves class feeling that they have made a fresh discovery about their yoga.
