We will be exploring the full spectrum of your yoga practice during the retreat. Nothing is compulsory. Like any yoga class, you take part in the bits that you want, and leave the bits that you don’t!
Dynamic Vinyasa (75-90mins) will feature every day, to energise and wake up the body. It will include the Rocket series which is Sarah’s passion. Restorative and Yin practices will also play their part to help you wind down at the end of each beautiful day, creating harmony and balance within your body.
Moving beyond the asana (posture based) parts - we will have daily sessions of Pranayama (breathing techniques) to awaken the body and mind and help us create different states and focus for different yoga practices. Setting up a Meditation practice (which is incredibly beneficial but often misunderstood) will be part of the experience. No previous experience necessary. You will be helped into forming an effortless meditation practice that you can take home and continue.
There will be 2 yoga workshops. These will give you greater depth and knowledge into specific elements of the yoga practice. We will be spending an afternoon exploring inversions, and another flying into the world of Acroyoga!
Having two teachers, both Sarah and Chris, will add so much to your experience. Many retreats have only one teacher for 15 - 20 students. We believe in a personal approach. We will be a group small, with lots of time for a real 1:1 experience and hands-on adjustments. This retreat is for anyone who either loves yoga, or wants to get into it.
The incredible Sophie Gordon is joining us in Thailand to not only cook, but to teach us too. Soph is renowned in the London yoga community for creating beautiful and delicious vegan and vegetarian meals. All meals will be included and provided in our beautiful villas, apart from one meal which will not be included. That evening we would like to all go out for some local (inexpensive) food and go to see a fire show!
Soph will also be delivering an interactive cooking workshop during the retreat to give you the opportunity to learn some practical cooking skills and make the dishes that you have been enjoying whilst you’re here. It will allow you to take home a little taste of Thailand, to prepare any time you want to whisk yourself back to this incredible time away.
