Bell tents

The beautifully furnished bell tents are simple yet sumptuous. With comfy beds and crisp, fresh linen, it’ll be a luxury glamping experience you’ll never forget! As you lay your head down, let the sweet scent of the nearby lemon and orange groves carry you off to sleep as you doze under the glorious, star-filled sky. A truly blissful way to end your day.

Rest and relaxation

You’ll be spoiled for choice for ways to rest and relax. You could take a dip in our refreshing swimming pool, or lounge lazily in the hammock area while taking in the beautiful views. Why not pull up a sun lounger in our shaded terrace, and enjoy one of our many books or board games? And at the end of your day, after an invigorating workshop, you can head past the almond trees to our lovely wooden meditation cabin, with breathtaking views over the valley.

Bathrooms and showering

As a totally off-grid yoga retreat, there are lovely, solar-powered showers, or if you prefer, an amazing outdoor shower block, so you can literally shower under the stars!

Electricity and the internet

Rustic Retreats provide their guests with an internet connection, and the bell tents come ready with solar electricity.

Program

Style of yoga to be taught

You will start each day with a dynamic Vinyasa Flow to recharge and energize your body and mind. The asana sequences will be built up step by step through the class with options given so that all abilities and body types are taken care of and everyone can feel fully included.

The evening practice will be a restorative Yin Flow. A chance to really unwind and let go. In this Yin asana practice, you will stay in each asana for longer and use props for support. The use of props (blocks and cushions) allows you to stay with asanas for longer without discomfort or stress, this method gives the facia (connective tissue) of the body time to release.

The yoga practice will be open to all levels. Modifications will be given throughout. You are all so different, physically, mentally, and emotionally. You will be encouraged to really listen to what your body needs, and this may change from day to day. You will be encouraged to take the practice at your own pace and nurture your body and mind, at the same time as developing strength and flexibility physically and mentally.

Your Rustic Retreats journey

Everyone holds magic inside of us: an inner light that can transform their lives and the world around them. But in a society that constantly tells you, you are not enough your magic can get hidden and forgotten, and as you search for meaning in things outside of yourselves like money or material possessions you can forget that everything you need is already within you. Spend a week exploring and developing your yoga practice making it right for you so you can feel connected with your inner magic, new friends, and your environment.

Workshop 1: Connect with Your Body

In this first workshop, you will set the foundation for the rest of the weeks' asana practice. You will explore the asanas commonly found in a Vinyasa practice, finding ease and steadiness without stress, struggle, or strain. Learn to listen to, accept, and love your body.

Workshop 2: Connect with the Earth (Mindful Walking)

You will walk slowly and mindfully through the beautiful landscape surrounding Bagend as a reminder that you are connected to everything around you. Mindful walking is a great way to connect with your body, your breath, and your environment and is a form of meditation easily accessible to those who find sitting still a challenge.

Workshop 3: Connect with Others

Connect using partner yoga. You will explore some simple asana assists to help each other to get the most from yoga asana and enjoy some fun partner yoga to build trust, communication, and friendships. Partner yoga keeps you in check and allows you to mindfully work through the postures with someone else. No one is “better” than anyone else, for both your strengths and weaknesses should allow you to complete the poses. This is also a mental exercise for teamwork versus focusing purely on yourself.

Workshop 4: Turning it all up-side-down

Exploring some of the full inversions. Headstands and forearm balances can feel very scary and even impossible. You are capable of so much more than you realize. Come explore your body and flip your perspective upside-down with an inversion workshop for all levels. The most exciting part of reaching a goal is the journey along the way: overcoming obstacles as you grow in confidence to try new things and have a good old laugh along the way.

Workshop 5: Sankalpa and Yoga Nidra

IA Sankalpa or mantra is an intention you form in your heart and mind, something you want to flavor and guide your lives. In this workshop, you will spend time creating a personal Sankalpa and then move into Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep is a gorgeous practice that guides you into a deep state of relaxation. It is from this space of deep relaxation, you will bring your Sankalpa and allow it to settle into your deepest being. Wake up feeling refreshed, nourished, and aligned with your inner magic.
