With the Christmas craze already upon us, with that comes over indulgence, less exercise and often those unhealthy eating habits sneaking back up on us. To help you survive this we’ve put together a round up of fitness and active retreats to kick off 2019. Book before midnight Monday 29th October and we’ll give you £25 off your booking.
After the excess of Christmas, our New Year yoga retreat Cornwall is the perfect way to unwind, rest and recuperate and start 2019. This new year we have relocated to the beautiful area of St Agnes. The area is known for its outstanding natural beauty and from the TV series Poldark, so imagine a dramatic coastline with crashing waves and stunning beaches.
Gently cleanse and nourish body and mind this new year with 2 hours of energising yoga in the morning and after brunch, enjoy the many walks from the retreat, immerse yourself in the setting intentions workshop, journal, have a massage or soak in the hot tub. Explore the many gorgeous beaches nearby such as Porth Towan, St Agnes and Perranporth or treat yourself to a cream tea!
Do you dream of combining the passion of skiing and snowboarding with the restorative balm of yoga and meditation? Rockin’ the slopes and carving some inspirational yoga into your holiday? Outside there is ice, snow, powder and breathtaking mountains.
Inside the beautiful stone and wooden chalet there are log fires, bespoke rooms and congenial communal spaces lit by candles, warm smiles and tall tales of mountain adventures. Delicious vegetarian meals, home made breads, juices and house wines are served daily as the sun rises and sets over the mountains of the Oisans ranges.
This is an ancient village where time has been preserved in the twists of the timbers that support the tumbling tiles and wood piles high beside the cow shed door and yet, we can potter up the road and with one ski-lift are deposited into the heart of one of Europe’s favourite ski areas, Alpe d’Huez.
Pumping pistes and the life affirming backdrop of the alpine scenery make this a retreat that offers both peace and passion for the ultimate ski-yoga getaway. Our yoga space looks over the mountains, with eyes drawn towards the rising sun or moon, high above the valley floor.
This environment is perfect to breathe deeply of life, to restore and revitalise as the practice soothes tired muscles, calms the mind and prepares the body lovingly for the skiing in your day ahead.
The company is warm, like minded and welcoming, with participants returning annually to experience the dream fusion of a holiday that facilitates skiing in one of the world’s top resorts and the yoga instruction of a senior inspirational teacher.
