Retreat 2018

Retreat and revive your body, mind and soul

 

 Mount Pleasant Eco Park, Porthtowan, Cornwall

****We will host another retreat here in 2019, please see the retreat pages for more details*****

 

 

Come join us for a weekend of yoga, fitness, mindfulness and holistic therapies in the beautiful surrounds of the Mount Pleasant Eco Park, Cornwall.

Our retreat has been designed to give you that much deserved time and space to reclaim your lust for life! Taking time for YOU to relax, reset, and revitalise.

 

 

Sitting on the Atlantic coast with views across the dunes to the sunset you will leave with a feeling of total wellbeing, thoroughly nourished and revived and ready to face the rest of your life!

 

 

Yoga

Claire has years of experience teaching Yoga and Dance, and has worked on many retreats around the world.

Claire sees each class as a personal journey for the learner. A voyage of self-discovery. She believes that yoga is the vehicle for the journey of the body and mind. She wants each student in her class to come out feeling good about themselves, with an overall feeling of positivity.

She is experienced at working in a group of mixed level students giving variations on postures to challenge experienced yogis and help the beginner get more out of the class.

The classes will contain a mixture of asana, pranayama and meditation. The morning sessions will be dynamic vinyasa flows to wake up the body and mind. The evening sessions will be restorative and restful to revive your soul and aid you in a good night’s sleep.

 

Meditation

For some meditation seems scary and difficult. We will lead you in a mindfulness meditation workshop and guide you through some meditation techniques to start you on your meditation journey, or answer any questions you may have with your existing practice.

Meditation has many benefits, it has been proven to reduce stress, increase your sense of well being, improve focus and memory and give you a sense of calm and peace in your busy lives.

 

 

Holistic Therapies

The retreat includes a 30 minute holistic therapy session with Jacqui. With a career spanning 25 years she has taken a global journey through the spa, wellness and holistic therapy world.
