Daily Yoga and Guided Relaxation Sessions (am and pm)

The small group ensure individual attention from our professional teachers. These particular workshops are suited from complete beginners to intermediate levels with an emphasis on well being. Personal discussion with your teacher prior to booking ensures the suitability of the holiday for your requirements. You will receive a personal lifestyle session with professional guidance from your tutor. This gives you a take home practice guide and some techniques for managing stress in a realistic way to suit your individual lifestyle.

Yoga Classes:- Suitable from beginners to intermediate, we focus on yoga physical postures for well-being, strength, flexibility and relaxation, aimed to be challenging yet suitable for your individual fitness level. The yoga classes are just over an hour twice a day and are designed to be suitable for your fitness level. Tutors are experienced with offering adaptations or progressions to suit individual levels. In the morning we engage in a dynamic “wake up” class, whereas the late afternoon session are more centered on quietening postures, breathwork and relaxation. We aim to teach you several stress management techniques to use whatever lifestyle you lead so you can utilise the breathing techniques or yoga postures you learn into your professional environment in an unobtrusive manner. Our tutors are not only qualified and experienced yoga teachers, they are also on hand with other personal wellbeing and fitness advice.
