Yoga & Meditation
With up to 7 yoga sessions, a pranayama session and a guided meditation session included in your stay with us we hope to give you the chance to really feel the benefits of a regular yoga practice, or if you’re a seasoned yogi you have the chance to go deep and really focus on your yoga practice for a week or two with our experienced teacher as your guide. You can add some 1-to1 sessions with our practitioners to feel the benefit of bespoke attention. And if that’s not enough we run drop-in classes for fellow travellers in the area alongside the retreat schedule which you are welcome to attend if you want even more classes.

Daily Vinyasa Flow classes
Vinyasa means “To move in a special way” and that way is to link the movement and breath together. Our flow sessions will be physically energising, working with the breath and the movements in harmony to build heat in the body getting to grips with the asana practice (physical postures). Our classes will include various traditional yoga techniques to help you connect with the true essence of yoga aiming to leave you feeling invigorated and uplifted.
Yin Yoga is a quiet and simple practice, but not necessarily an easy practice. This style works deeply into our body. It targets our deepest tissues, our connective tissues — ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascial networks of our body — rather than the muscles. The perfect balance for surf/travel/vinyasa tired bodies..
Private classes are a great way to take your practice to the next level or focus on a particular aspect of your yoga practice. Whether it’s your first yoga experience, or if you’re a seasoned practitioner who wants to develop the finer details of each asana, one on one classes gives the time to deepen your practice or to simply organise those wavering limbs. Discuss what you want to achieve with your yoga teacher before the class.
While asanas (postures) sort out our bodies, pranayama (breathing exercises) sort out our minds. During the Pranayama classes you will be guided through specific breathing exercises to channel your “Prana” (or life force) and by bringing awareness to the breath can increase your lung capacity. Through these exercises the mind is rejuvenated, stilled and uplifted.
More and more of us are turning to meditation to help calm and still the mind from today’s incessant deadlines and pressures. Though sometimes thought to be “boring” or “difficult”, our meditation class will guide you through accessible techniques to help calm and organise your thoughts and help explore a mindful approach to your day. With the help of sound, light, and sometimes even movement the techniques are designed to quieten the senses. Get over yourself, break down that resistance. We know you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
