Bell tents

Our 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, we have lovely, solar-powered showers, or if you prefer, an amazing outdoor shower block, so you can literally shower under the stars!

Electricity and internet

We provide our guests with an Internet connection , and the bell tents come ready with solar electricity.

Program

The workshops and daily classes will help you further explore and discover what yoga is about, and how it can help us become our ‘best selves’. The workshops range from anatomical to artistic but all will serve to deepen our understanding of both the science and art of yoga. By the end of the week you’ll have an extra spring in your step, and new yogic techniques in your ‘yoga tool box’ to take home with you to continue your yogic journey!

Semi private retreat

This semi-private retreat has been specifically designed to help us reconnect with others. We have all experienced a situation this year unparalleled in any way, it will take time for us all to reconnect and feel at ease among others. With this in mind we have remodeled our retreats:

1) Min 4 to a max of 6 guests.

2) Private accommodation

3) Social distancing, open air dining room.

4) Social distancing, open air mountain yoga shala

Style of yoga to be taught

​The practice of Yoga Asana (physical positions) are the tip of an iceberg into a much wider and deeper set of practices and ways of living. Traditional yoga consists of eight pillars, including how we live our lives, Pranayama (breathing exercises), inner awareness, concentration, and ultimately Samadhi.

The style of teaching on this retreat will be Vinyasa flow. In a mindfull and gentle way this style will bring in intelligent sequencing, mindfulness, a focus on inner awareness, and moving with the breath. We will combine more flowing classes with opportunities to break down the poses and explore fundamental principles in yoga, such as how we can use the ground to engage and enliven our poses and how we can create space in our bodies, by working with partners or using props. We will teach breathing and a variety of meditation techniques from different traditions in each class to enable the student to further explore this part of yoga.

Your Rustic Retreats journey​

Coming out of lockdown your yoga practice we may go through periods where we feel stuck! This feeling might relate to stress or anxiety, lack of inspiration, or fatigue. This week will help inspire us by providing both traditional but also modern techniques, practises and ideas to re-energise and enliven our yoga practices – and by extension our lives!

From exploring modern principles of anatomy to ensure that our positions are safe and sustainable, to investigating ancient limbs of yoga and how they can apply in our modern lives this week will provide a fresh outlook to your yoga practice.

Over the week, we will also offer meditation techniques from a range of different traditions including Buddhist-inspired awareness and Metta (loving kindness) practices, modern mindfulness practices and more traditional Pranayama (breath control) techniques from a Hatha Yoga background. These meditation techniques will help you get to know yourself better, understand your trigger points and be able to recognise and change any negative thought patterns.

Workshop 1 Yoga: Freedom and Form

In this practical workshop, you will explore some of the basics of yoga alignment and how this relates to anatomy (form). We will look at how every ‘body’ is different and the importance of not trying to force yourself into the ‘perfect pose’. We will discuss the importance of ‘good’ alignment (form) as a basis for avoiding injury. This will focus particularly on how to protect delicate areas such as the shoulders, neck, lower back and knees.

Workshop 2 The 8 limbs of yoga

This workshop will enable both seasoned practitioners and newbies to know and explore further the eight limbs of yoga. We will begin by introducing the eight limbs of yoga and where these originate from and how they fit into other parts of yoga philosophy.

Workshop 3 Breath and movement

In this workshop we will explore how we can inspire our practice through moving and breathing more fully, by engaging in some informative exercises and partner work. This will help us deepen our understanding of how our own, and others breath works, and how we can activate and deepen our connection with it.

Workshop 4 Yoga for stress and anxiety

This workshop will explore how we can use simple yoga practices and meditation techniques to learn coping strategies for day-to day-stress and tension. We will explore techniques such as restorative yoga, breathing techniques and guided relaxations to deal with stressful situations both in the moment, but also as a way to unwind during particular stressful times. Through using observation techniques we will explore how effective these simple practices can be.

Workshop 5 Yoga and Art: Sacred mandalas, chakra symbolisation, scared images

In this fun and playful workshop we will explore our creative side by creating our own sacred images. This session will begin by exploring and looking at various images and yogic art. We will then meditate on an image that we are drawn to by using a practice called trataka – which is a soft meditative gazing practice. We will then recreate our own interpretation of the image using paints and pencils to create an object to use in our own practice.
