6th - 8th October 2023
Immerse yourself in a peaceful and calming environment and experience the power of yoga on the Isle of Wight.
A unique yoga retreat to reconnect with yourself and with nature in a tranquil and beautiful setting. Disconnect from the stresses of everyday life and cultivate your inner presence.
Think mindful walks in nature, yoga, nourishing meals, time to relax.
Through the practise of gentle yoga, nidra, vinyasa flow and sound baths you will rejuvenate your body and mind.
About the retreat venue:
Godshill Park Barn, located in the picturesque village of Godshill on the southern part of the Isle of Wight, is the ideal place to relax and reconnect with nature. Combining traditional and modern elements, this stunning rural architecture is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
All yoga classes will be taught by me. Through dynamic yoga to strengthen and stabilise muscles, gentle yoga to calm the nervous system, deeply relaxing yoga nidra and sound baths*, I will guide you on a journey of renewal that only a yoga retreat can offer.
You can choose to participate in all or some of the classes.
*Sound baths will be led by a local sound practitioner.
Outline of the weekend:
On Friday 6th October, arrive at the venue at approximately 4pm and I will welcome you with hot drinks and homemade cakes.
After settling into your room, we will meet in the yoga studio for an opening circle and gentle yoga practice. Dinner and chats will follow.
On Saturday, greet the day with a brief mindful, silent walk in nature before the vinyasa yoga practice. Fuel up with a yummy brunch and get ready for a group walk to the coast and the village of Ventnor (approx. 90 min walk). Return to Godshill Park Barn early afternoon for some free time before the gentle evening yoga and the deeply relaxing sound baths. If you’d like to book a massage during the free time on Saturday afternoon, I can help coordinate that with a local massage therapist. Dinner and chats will follow.
On Sunday, start the day with a mindful, silent, nature walk, practice vinyasa yoga, and have breakfast together. Explore the village of Godshill before lunch, then relax before the retreat‘s closing circle. We will leave on Sunday early afternoon.
