You will be supported to develop a deeper awareness of your own needs and potentials, whether that’s exploring the joy of yoga for the first time or understanding the more subtle aspects of a particular posture or practice. Daily workshops are designed for beginners or those with reduced mobility and provide a gentle introduction to yoga and meditation.

Meditation sessions draw on a range of traditions including Buddhist, Sufi, and earth-based spirituality practices. You are welcome to arrive from 14:00 onwards on day 1 and make use of the swimming pool and luscious gardens before you first come together as a group for your evening sessions, which are a welcome circle, Candlelight Yin yoga and meditation, and a sumptuous supper.

In addition, the retreat finishes after your morning yoga and breakfast on day 4, allowing you plenty of time to travel back home feeling refreshed, smiling, and ready to face the new week ahead.

The teachers have each developed their own individual style and approach and will draw on a range of practices including Iyengar, Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin yoga. But these are just labels. The most important part of the practices together is that they come from the heart and encourage both beginners and more experienced students to reconnect with their own body-heart-mind in an authentic way.
