Timetables

Yoga Retreat Holidays

These typically start with a morning Hatha class, followed by a hearty brunch. You will have free time during the day to relax, explore, take a massage or otherwise do your own thing. There may be optional meditation sessions during the day, followed by an evening yoga session (typically Ashtanga or Vinyasa flow) before supper, and then we often end with a deeply relaxing yoga nidra session before bed. I only pick venues that provide a great level of comfort, accommodation, food... and we bring the fun! You can have a room to yourself (for a single supplement), or if you want to share but aren't bringing a friend, we will do our best to match you up with a lovely yoga room-mate.

Class descriptions

Find the style that's right for you:

  • Ashtanga classes
    are energetic, yet help to develop a sense of calm, inner peace, and wellbeing. This is a fast-moving style of yoga, linking deep, cleansing breathing with a structured sequence of postures designed to stretch you physically and mentally. You will be led through the sequence and given options to suit your level. Because of the pace, it is best for those who have reasonable fitness, or who already practice other forms of yoga. Guaranteed to make you sweat!
  • Vinyasa flow classes
    are a free-format variation on the Ashtanga style, linking breath and movement together. Again, you will be guided through the practice, with options to suit.
  • Hatha classes
    are at a more gentle pace, with static holds to strengthen and give an all over stretch. Typically I will include specific breathing (pranayama) and meditative exercises to de-stress and relax afterwards.
