How this retreat will inspire you?:
We believe that a yoga retreat should be a combination of Yoga and Relaxation, so we’re flexible on everything – no rules, no strict schedules, no mandatories.
A retreat can invite change and renew inspiration in our lives. It gives you the gift of time, time to focus on yourself, your needs and what makes you happy…helping you reconnect to your true life’s purpose.
In this day and age of busy-ness and distraction, taking time out with oneself just to notice, to restore, and to hold oneself with gentleness and kindness is the remedy and counterbalance. The practice of mindfulness, or present moment awareness is, simply put, a gift to oneself and an opportunity to reconnect with what is important.
A retreat is often a transformative experience that gives you time to restore, strengthen and heal.
This retreat will allow you to leave behind the usual distractions and arrive into a space of self-reflection where we return ‘home’, to the very essence your true nature.
Annika and Gillian pride themselves on sharing yogic teachings and mindfulness in a down to earth, fun manner inclusive of everyone’s level of experience.
We have built in 3 excursions for you that we can all do together, but even those are optional. We are your guides on this retreat but it’s YOUR retreat, YOUR time.
