ADVENTURE YOGI RETREATS 2017

I host and teach on Adventure Yogi retreats around the UK each year. Each venue is unique, it's very hard which to say I prefer as they are all wonderful! 

On each retreat your day begins with a silent walk outside before your 2 hour hatha flow yoga practice, which includes pranayama and meditation. After which you are served a delicious breakfast. Then depending on the retreat you book there maybe a workshop, a walk in the countryside, time for massage and always time to just relax (plus lunch of course!).

In the evenings before dinner I teach a slow Yin practice with Yoga Nidra. The food throughout the weekend is all vegetarian and always delicious!

February 3rd - 5th   Norfolk Well Being Retreat
March 3rd - 5th   East Sussex Happiness Retreat

KERALA RETREAT

Breathe. Relax. Release.

Date: 18th November - 28th November 2018

Location: Palm Tree Yoga, Kerala, India.

 

I am very excited to be planning a 10 day retreat to the motherland of Yoga and my most favourite place in the whole world, India, in 2018! I will be planning the schedule closer to the time but you can expect; Hatha Flow yoga in the mornings, Yin in the evenings, day trips, time off to explore on your own, plus journalling, self enquiry and short talks sharing yogic philosophy.

Palm Tree Yoga Centre is magical with its ocean views and its roof-top yoga shala. We will have magnificent views of the Indian Ocean as we practice and during the evening practice we will see the sunset over the sea. The centre is placed just above the beach in a peaceful bay, yet is only a half hour stroll or a short rickshaw ride from the shops and restaurants of Kovalam.

Accommodation is spread over three houses arranged in a triangle.  Massages and Ayurvedic treatments can be arranged on-site. Where specific Ayurvedic equipment is required (such as for a herbal steam bath) the treatment will take place at the nearby Ayurvedic Centre.

Sumadra Village  is less than ten minutes walk away and has several cafes, a beauty parlour (pedicure £4) and shops

To fully read about this venue please see the Free Spirit website with whom I am running this through: Palm Tree Yoga Centre

Feedback from past retreats I have ran in Turkey:

"I've had a fantastic time, I loved all the readings/ meditations that you did while we were holding poses and everything was really well organised, thanks for all the effort you put into it"

"The yoga was very good, Louise really adds her heart to the classes and the different readings are very touching. I loved the yin yoga in the evenings at sunset most, the yoga nidra was powerful too"

"Excellent retreat all in all lots of things to do around the area should you wish to explore. The yoga platform was stunning, would definitely come again"

"Thank you! My first yoga retreat and I enjoyed every bit of it, an amazing week I feel nourished from the inside out"
