The retreat will be a blend of challenging and fun yoga sessions. The style of yoga taught on this retreat will be inspired by both Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga, combined with relaxation and restorative practices. You will leave at the end of the weekend feeling rested yet energised, calm, grounded, open and light with a deeper sense of connection to yourself and the world around you.

In each class you will be given tools and information to find what serves you best for your body and for your mind. We will take an in-depth look at the invigorating and heat building sequences of the traditional Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations). It will include yoga to strengthen your body and mind. In the classes guests will be encouraged to challenge themselves to their own abilities, having fun along the way. This will be a great opportunity for you to enjoy a weekend away from it all, enjoy beautiful surroundings of The Courtyard and delicious food.

In the 4 Hatha Yoga sessions over this weekend we will work on:
• building sequences of asanas (postures)
• We will take an in-depth look at the invigorating and heat building sequences (Sun Salutations)
• We will also explore Pranayama (Breathing) practices
• We will work to unlock some of the blocked, tight and restricted areas often present in our bodies due to the stresses, strains and demands of modern living
• We will address the issues that can arise in the platforms/stabilising junctions of the ankles & feet, hips & pelvis, and shoulders and neck and work to free up the spine so we can open up once more to spring and new beginnings through this beautiful, ancient and powerful practice.
