What’s it all about?
This retreat is suitable for those looking to explore all aspects of yoga (and not just a physical workout), instead of just ‘performing poses’, we seek to make the yoga useful to our individual needs. There is emphasis on a longer, stronger and more flexible spine, a calmer mind, increased energy and ease of movement. With practice, it is particularly helpful for those who are working with postural issues or back pain and to learn how to deeply relax.
Each class starts with a relaxation to minimise bringing tension into the practice. The Asanas (yoga postures) exercise every part of the body safely through a natural range of movement. Breath work might be just awareness of the breath or a more formalised Pranayama practice. Each class finishes with Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation or 'Yoga Sleep') to bring mind, breath and body together resulting in a feeling of wholeness.
Suitable for everyone from beginners to experienced yoga practitioners and all ages and abilities are welcome.
