Mid-May Yoga Retreat
May Vinyasa Yoga Retreat
The style of yoga taught is Vinyasa Flow Yoga, combined with relaxation, meditation and restorative practices.
Liz will guide you to find what suits you best for your body and for your mind. You will take an in-depth look at the invigorating sequences of the traditional Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations). and you will work on building sequences of asanas (postures). We will also explore Pranayama (Breathing) practice. 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.
Drawing from over 15 years of combined study, teaching experience and personal practice – Liz uses refined specific approaches & modifications and variations where necessary to ensure that all students – regardless of age, ability or fitness levels receive the maximum benefits from their practices. She will guide each student safely – addressing problematic areas of the body such as hips, hamstrings, lower back, shoulders and neck – easing out stiff joints and tight muscles along the way. Liz has a unique way of using her skills to challenge those who are more experienced while nurturing those who are just beginning – all in the same environment. As the body becomes more open and free through the tools of the practice – so too does the mind as it enters a more peaceful and meditative state.
