Join me for a fabulous yoga retreat at Shanticentre, near Atri in the charming Italian province of Abruzzo.
It’s a most welcoming, nurturing, kind and compassionate home-away-from-home for anyone looking to recalibrate, refocus, relax and reset. Good yoga, good food and good fun with friendly people!
Accommodation is limited to only 8 guests in beautiful, homely single and double rooms. Bathrooms are shared but there are substantial allowances made for all guest requirements.
What yoga will be offered on the retreat?
The theme for the retreat is Yin and Yang – Restoring your balance
The overall style of yoga will be hatha flow, with a strong (yang) class offered every morning. The daily practice will be themed around the Yamas of Patanljali, incorporating simple yoga philosophy into the practice. There will also be a Pranayama practice, focussing on the breath to access the postures. The main aim will be to achieve openness in the mind and body through yoga, finding headspace to handle stress and to achieve overall wellbeing.
Evening practice will be restorative to counteract the strong morning practice. This will consist of Yin yoga, a slow and stretching practice holding postures for longer periods of time, supporting the body with props through using bolsters, straps, blocks and pillows. Every evening practice will conclude with a Yoga Nidra session – Yoga for sleep. This consists of a guided meditation and visualisation practice, focussing on the breath to calm the mind, facilitate relaxation and encourage sleep.
