If you enjoy yoga outdoors, nature, quiet beach living and relaxing in a local atmosphere, this Retreat is perfect for you! It's easy to fit into a holiday schedule, and you will feel rejuvenated and refreshed afterwards.
Imagine waking up with a gentle yoga flow overlooking the ocean, relaxing during the day in the sun or exploring the island, and finishing with a relaxing candle light Yin yoga before dinner.
Yoga with us is aimed at maximizing your well-being and we want yoga to support you in your current path in life. We balance our days between Hatha yoga and reflective Yin yoga, and mix in some playful sunset yoga by the beach.
The small island will charm you with its authenticity and pure, unique nature! Come exactly as you are, no previous yoga experience is required (just an open heart and mind)! This Yoga Retreat is accessible all year round, so come when you want!
Our retreat schedule allows time for yoga, private relaxation as well as exploring the island.
After settling into your lovely accommodation, you will receive a one hour full-body massage to relax you and get you into the mood of the Mini Yoga Retreat. You can enjoy a delicious lunch during the afternoon, hang in the hammocks and enjoy the beach front location. In the early evening there will be a relaxing yoga class, after which you can enjoy your dinner.
We will start the morning with a gentle Hatha yoga, followed by a fresh breakfast. During the afternoon you are free to explore the island, to enjoy the quiet beach, or book some additional relaxing treatments such as Life Coaching, Yoga Nidra or another massage. After enjoying the beautiful sunset, we will have a Candle Light Yin Yoga class with soothing music. A lovely way to end the day!
The day will start with a breakfast, after which we will head out for a scenic hike to the hidden cold springs. We will do one yoga session in the middle of the lush forest, and after a refreshing dip into the springs, we walk back via the beautiful rice fields. Afterwards you can enjoy a lunch at the resort, and we end the day with a relaxing restorative yoga class.
