Description

Therapeutic hatha yoga.

Liz Bennett has created a special space within her yoga retreat in Fiji to encourage parents to bring along their kids. It’s a wonderful way for mums and dads to embrace yoga within a family holiday, and reconnect with each other, nature and a gentler pace of life.There are special (separate) classes for the children, and they can come along on all the excursions. At the same time, the kids never overwhelm the yoga so if you are not bringing children, don’t worry – the focus of each class is still on the adults.

This year, Liz is running Balanced Practice Family Yoga Retreat together with her friend Amelia Disspain, who is co-director of their Balanced Practice yoga teacher trainings and retreats.

During this retreat, Liz and Amelia will be working with you on a daily basis to explore your capabilities and develop confidence and understanding of your body. They modify the practices for people with injuries, and they will develop a take-home program for you, that you can do on your own (recording it for you, so you won’t forget it the minute you leave the yoga shala).
