Active yoga retreats outline
For the adventurist and yogi in you, join us for our active yoga retreats. By active we mean for those people that would like to feel exhilarated after their yoga retreat, as well as relaxed. Enjoy yoga sessions twice a day, silent walks, healthy vegetarian food, free time to choose from a multitude of activities, massage and time to relax.
You can be as active or relaxed as you like. We include an invigorating guided hike in the price with qualified and experienced mountain guides to take you to some of the most picturesque spots. We will be out all day and provide a packed lunch. Of course you don’t have to join in, it’s up to you if you’d prefer to kick back and rest at the retreat.
For more details or to make a reservation please contact us, we’d love to hear from you.
The classes are suitable for all abilities, from beginners to intermediate and advanced levels. Everyone is welcome. We have a range of very experienced teachers who are the best of the best and are well practiced at adapting the class for everyone’s level. Whether it be Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Ashtanga, Sivananda, Yin or others, all classes cover pranayama, asanas and meditation to help increase oxygen flow, balance, clarity and to promote a peaceful mind. Morning sessions are a more dynamic practice and the evening sessions are gentle with lots of stretches, meditation and relaxation.
Enjoying healthy and flavoursome vegetarian food is an integral part of our ActiveYogi retreats. We bring our own AdventureYogi chefs with us who all have their own style to create mouth-watering dishes with the focus on nutrition. We offer a healthy breakfast of detox juices, homemade granola and eggs. There are herbal, and caffeinated teas and coffee, so you can choose if you want to detox gently. There’s bread and cow’s milk in the morning, but soya and our own almond milk if you prefer. A healthy afternoon snack or packed lunch will keep you going in the day, and there’s well earned 3-course supper in the evening. Our food makes a big impression on our guests as they say they love it and it changes their way of cooking when they get home.
We are in a hot spot for activities! There’s walking, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, mountain biking, horse riding and climbing.
