ASHTANGA & DHARMA YOGA RETREAT WITH TIM STEEL
July 24 – 31, 2021
Description of the retreat
Each Day will begin with an hour of peaceful meditation and Dharma presentation.
Following this there will be an intense two hours of yoga to really wake up the mind and invigorate the body.
There will then be a break for a hard earned and well deserved brunch. A more gentle two hours of yoga nidra and breathwork will follow .
There will be a break each day between 2-4 where you are welcome to use the wonderful facilities in and around the retreat.
We will reconvene at 4:30 for a focused hour and a half workshop with a different theme each day.
Finally, at 7pm it is time for a delicious dinner and some time to catch up and chat with the other yogis (and possibly enjoy a couple of glasses of wine!)
Whilst the focus of the break is yoga, it is also important that you take time to relax and enjoy the holiday side of the holiday!
We would encourage everyone to attend each of the classes and work shops throughout the day but they are certainly not compulsory.
Mats, props, belts etc are all provided by the retreat venue and so you do not need to worry about bringing any equipment with you (unless you simply can’t practice without your lucky mat!). The practice space is air conditioned too which is a real treat!
Our aim is that you will come home from your holiday feeling like a new and improved yogi, with new skills, a relaxed mind and glowing smile
