This retreat is held in a budget surf lodge style hotel in the heart of Newquay, Cornwall, called Ocean Surf Lodge. Rooms are all private, en-suite (with shower room) and feature beach style decor and accessories - rooms are basic but centrally heated, cosy and carpeted. There is an on-site bar which is intimate and cozy and perfect for relaxing in after a long walk (there is also free unlimited Wi-Fi). The lodge itself is located just a four-minute walk the beaches and town centre and it also features free guest parking.
Each day is filled with yoga classes, breathing/relaxation techniques, and coastal walks.
The Vinyasa yoga instructor has been teaching for over 20 years. Sessions will be restorative and calming but she will also work with you to strengthen the core, increase strength, stamina, and flexibility. Our instructor is sensitive to all beginners abilities and will encourage you to be challenged yet invigorated.

The sea air really is good for the health. The bracing climate by the sea is especially beneficial to the respiratory organs and the skin, but also improves circulation and strengthens the body's defenses.
The reason sea air is so healthy is that it contains tiny droplets of seawater enriched with salt, iodine, magnesium and trace elements, which are scattered into the air by wind and waves. Sea air is also full of negative hydrogen ions which, by neutralizing damaging free radicals, improve our ability to absorb oxygen. They can also balance levels of serotonin (the hormone that makes us feel happy) meaning we will become more relaxed and less prone to anxiety.
When you couple the restorative powers of sea air with walking, you are also releasing tension and getting incredibly beneficial exercise at the same time. On our coastal walks, you will experience parts of Cornwall that very few people get to see, stunning seascapes and hidden beauty spots - so bring your camera and prepare to be beguiled and amazed.
Guided coastal walks are included in the price of this retreat.
The location is second to none, just a four-minute walk from the stunning Fistral Beach in Newquay, Cornwall.
