Time Out For Yourself
There is a huge difference between going on holiday and going on retreat. Even the word itself tells us that it’s all about stepping back, going inwards, and allowing yourself time to recharge.
Most retreats will encourage you to leave the outside world behind, step away from all stresses and drains on your time and energy, and instead put your focus on personal growth through experience.
It is the perfect balance of effort and surrender-nurture yourself with challenging Vinyasa yoga in the mornings, then explore your personal practice and some fun advancements. It is all suitable for most abilities.
The Vinyasa will be creative, flowing and challenging. Included in the 10 days are workshops on, the 8 limbs of yoga, chakras, arm balances and inversions, and pranayama, plus beautiful sunrise and starlit meditations some mornings and evenings.
The retreat setting allows for plenty of individual guidance so that we’ll be able to work with your specific level and requirements.
