All our yoga teachers are dedicated to their practise and live and breathe it. Be reassured that all of your tensions and worries will have dissolved by the end of your retreat. Yoga classes are made special with natural light radiating through the purpose-built, high ceiling yoga shala. There are even views of the mountains to help you tap into your mindfulness.

We have designed our weekends and weeks for people who love yoga, whether they are beginners or have been practising for years. All our teachers are very experienced and are more than capable of adapting the classes to all levels. Our ethos is about being open & friendly, and we set up our business to spread the incredible word of yoga to people who perhaps wouldn’t have gone on a yoga retreat before. So don’t be shy, there is no time like the present to start your journey with yoga.

Of course not, we understand we all want different things. Our two-hour sessions normally also include meditation or mindfulness, so it’s worth giving it a go.
