Easter Yoga Surf & Walking Retreat in Cornwall, 19 – 22 April, 22 – 26 April, 19 – 26 April
Easter Yoga Surf & Walking Retreat in Cornwall
Join us for our yoga surf & walking retreat for 3, 4 or 7 nights this Easter. We have returned to Cornwall after a break, and we are so excited to share this adventure with you! We have relocated to the beautiful area of St Agnes. This 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.
Our Easter Cornwall yoga retreats are very popular. After a 30 minute silent meditation walk and a two hour morning practice you can enjoy relaxing at our gorgeous pad, soothe achy limbs in the outdoor hot tubs (yes we have two!), or venture out to the coastal walks or try something a little more adventurous; Surfing, coasteering, paddleboarding, kayaking to name a few of the activities we have on offer. Learn more about the walks from our doorstep or if surfing is your thing then see what yoga poses can help.
Stay for the weekend, the mid week or the whole week. Whether you are a surf pro, a yoga pro or a complete beginner at either, the combination of yoga with surfing will enhance your balance, concentration and flexibility to help you get up on the board and stay on!.
This yoga surf retreat Cornwall is suitable for anyone who is a complete novice or is an expert. If you prefer not to get in the water that is ok, this is also suited to people who prefer dry land and wish to enjoy the scenery. It’s also suitable for all ages, shapes, and sizes.
The classes are suitable for all abilities and levels. They are modified for the surfers needs, stretching out the legs and strengthening the core, balance and concentration. We have a range of very experienced teachers who are well practiced at adapting the class for everyone’s level.
All classes cover pranayama, asanas and meditation to help increase oxygen flow, balance, clarity and a peaceful mind. Morning sessions are a more dynamic practice and the evening sessions are gentle with lots of stretches, meditation and relaxation. Bliss!.
Amy’s yoga journey began when she least expected it. For years believing the yoga was just for the calm and naturally bendy, she found a teacher that made asana gentle, nurturing and healing; fate was sealed. After becoming a yoga apprentice Amy soon realised that this was what her heart was calling her to do.
After completing her 200hr YTT in Costa Rica, Amy knew she wanted to teach in a way that made yoga accessible to everyone. With a background in working as a massage therapist in both holistic and clinical settings, Amy uses her knowledge of the body and its ranges of movement to ensure that no matter what age or ability arrived on their mat, they could feel confident to practise and her regular classes reflect that with people as young as 20 practising along side people in their 80’s.
Amy has completed trainings in Yin, yoga therapy, chair yoga, sequencing, mindfulness and advanced yoga anatomy over the years, each bringing a different dynamic to the practise.
As a massage therapist she is trained in traditional Swedish, deep tissue, myofascial release and reflexology. She also works as an Ayurvedic therapist being able to do various treatments, consultations and has a real passion for yoga’s sister practise.
After completing her training in trauma sensitive yoga, she began using yoga and bodywork in women’s centres and refuges and now stands as a support worker for the Cornwall charity WRSAC.
Amy has worked as massage therapist and yoga teacher in some of Cornwall’s finest hotels, hosted retreats in Cornwall and throughout Europe as well assisted in yoga teacher trainings in Costa Rica. Each experience has taught her something new and she loves that here is sill so much to come.
Amy’s style of teaching comes from a place of nurturing. She wants you to feel free to explore the capabilities of your own body, respect your boundaries and learn how to heal and protect it. By blending strong, grounded hatha practises with the freedom found in Scaravelli and vinyasa she believes that each practise can help create the perfect balance between flexibility and stability in both body and mind.
When Amy is not her mat or around a massage couch she is at home walking the beautiful coastline of Cornwall with her two dogs, planning her next adventure and pretending she is a great surfer.
‘Yoga is called a practice for a good reason. No matter how long you have practising there is always something new to learn and discover – every time you come to your mat you will have a different experience. That, is the beauty of the practice
We bring our own handpicked chefs with us to the retreats to create delicious fresh, healthy, nourishing vegetarian food.
