Ruth welcomes you to her Yoga Creative Retreats that she has created for you to unwind, rebalance and connect with the real you inside, so no matter whether you are new to yoga or practise regularly Ruth will adapt the yoga to suit you. She generally has a more vibrant uplifting morning class and a gentler, Yin and Restorative evening class. Again when it comes to art it really doesn’t matter if you aren’t confident with being creative or whether you are an artist, it is not about ‘being good at art' or 'no good'. The materials and tuition are there for you if you desire it and if you don’t thats fine!
During the retreat, you will be staying in a beautiful side beach accommodation of The Big Beach House. All linen and towels are provided.
On this retreat, you will enjoy an inspiring, rejuvenating, and relaxing art and yoga holiday in Cornwall, England.
