Description

Early Winter Yoga, Surf & Coastal Walking Retreat in Cornwall

Join us for a weekend or mid week on this early winter yoga and coastal walking retreat in beautiful Cornwall. This intimate retreat, with a maximum of 9 guests, is the ideal way to spend a 3 night healthy, adventurous weekend by the sea.

Situated a stone’s throw from the beach with sea views from the yoga space, indulge in four hours of yoga a day and be guided along the coastal paths and explore fishing villages and be in awe of stunning sunsets right from your yoga studio!

As the winter sets in, this retreat will set you up with the perfect balance of well-being and adventure to get you through.

With a super modern but homely feel, our Cornwall base is only a 5-minute walk to the beach and the beautiful coastal path is right on the doorstep. There is so much to explore!

Feel free to relax and unwind or get involved with the hikes or even a surf lesson. Our yoga classes look out to sea so you can soak up as much of the view as possible, as does the dining room!

This retreat is also available in autumn – from the 10th – 14th and 14th – 17th October. Click here for details.

Yoga

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!.

Morning Class
Our 2 hour morning classes are designed to help you unwind and let go of the sluggishness from a heavy winter. Feel into your body by slowing down and start to nourish it as you learn what it needs to feel more energised and revived again.

Evening Class
After your day surfing, exploring, walking, surfing, kayaking or relaxing at the beach, return to the shala to unwind and relax tired bodies with a restorative evening yoga class. This gentle 2 hour yoga class will vary each evening and include pranayama and meditation to help mind and body really let go and allow you to enter a state of deep relaxation.

Here are some yoga poses for surfing to get you pop-up ready for our surf yoga retreat Cornwall!

Your Teacher

Amy Williams

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

Cuisine

We are a plant-based company and take great pride in creating incredible food on our retreats! Our chefs create diverse and imaginative menus that really highlight the seasonality of local produce. We are able to cater to all dietary requirements.

On our winter Cornwall retreat you can expect warming, nourishing post-yoga brunch to fuel your day, a light lunch and a wholesome two-course evening meal.

Charlotte’s motivation is to share her passion for seasonal, plant-based ingredients and encourages guests to use their time on retreat to reconnect with their relationship to food.

As a Pilates, Yoga teacher and Chef she believes that with a balanced approach to exercise, eating well, and making more mindful choices about how and what we consume, we can live a more nurturing, self-supporting and planet-friendly lifestyle.
