A Typical Retreat Day
Asana Practice 7:30-9:00 am – Our daily practice of breathing, physical postures and relaxation begins in the yoga space each morning. The level of the class is gentle to intermediate; it will be adjusted to the abilities of the participants with the aim of the morning being to deepen your practice.
Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation): 11:15 am – 12 noon
Relaxation Free Time 12 noon – 5.00 pm – Finding relaxation in our every day lives is often challenging. Four hours of “me time” is scheduled during the retreat with time for spa treatments, swimming or time just to be. This is your chance to harmonize with the natural environment and take time for your own exploration and rejuvenation.
Moving Inward 5:00 – 6.15pm – Our afternoon practice will be a combination of meditation, chanting and restorative yoga. We will explore techniques to combat stress and anxiety, so you feel empowered to incorporate these tools as needed into your day. This week long retreat provides an opportunity to move more deeply into your own awareness and growth.
The programme is structured around morning workshops with afternoons for activities and free time to enjoy a massage, go snorkelling, or relax by the pool.
