More about the Yoga....

The Yoga practices will be suitable for all levels. Mornings will be a nice strong, slow Embodied Energy Flow, with pranayama, meditation & mantra. The  afternoon classes will be variable depending on the energy levels of the group, perhaps some deep relaxation, gentle flow or Yin yoga. 

The Sunrise Meditation and Pranayama is completely optional. This is a vacation is you want to sleep in, sleep in!

Mini workshops are also optional. We will dive a bit deeper into some "Yogic Topics" (to be announced).

If you are an absolute Yoga beginner (never done Yoga before) you will probably find the classes  quite challenging. If this is the case, write to me and we can set up a few classes to help you prepare so it is more enjoyable. (In person or online)

In your registration (if I don´t know you personally) please include a brief description of your Yoga experience (Asana/Meditation/Pranayama) , and any injuries or conditions that may affect your practice.

The retreat center has both indoor and outdoor Yoga spaces. Equipment is available including mats, but of course if you have a travel mat it is always nice to bring your own.

Lessons will be taught in English.

 


And about the food....

The food is wholesome, plant based, homemade, locally sourced and organic where possible.  Most important it is made with love, passion and dedication. 

Specific dietary requests are available when organized ahead of the retreat. Please make any requests on the registration form.
