Yoga, Surf & Nourish

There will be twice daily Iyengar yoga classes, aligning the body, mind & being. We start the morning with a more invigorating class, working through alignment principles connecting the intelligence of the brain with the space of the heart. In the evening after a wonderful day of hiking, there will be a restorative session, calming the senses & relaxing the body. The hiking will give you a chance to connect with the nature, be present and see some of the most natural coastal settings. Connecting this all together is the wonderful food we will share. Based on a healthy, nourishing diet. Mostly organic & seasonal and definitely absolutely delicious. Cooking a smorgasbord of different dishes so that everyone can have a choice of what they enjoy and even people with dietary allergies & intolerances will be in for a treat. During the retreats the groups will be kept small no more than 10-12 yogis, so that everyone get’s the personal attention they need and the ambience can become one of friends.
