About the Yoga: The retreat is based upon the foundation of dedicated yoga practice with experienced Radiance Yoga teacher Haydie Osborne-Hitchens and the experienced Radiance facilitators. All levels of yoga experience are well catered for including complete yoga beginners. People are challenged according to their experience with plenty of individual attention and adjustments given in the classes by our experienced Radiance facilitators. The classes combine gentle warm up sequences with Vinyasa yoga (moving through the postures with breath awareness) and holding in postures to build strength, stability and alignment. Many variations of the postures are given so people can practice according to their experience and individual needs. The classes are designed to allow people to journey deep into their practice with awareness and ease. Yoga props are often used to go deeper and to experience complete relaxation and renewal in the restorative yoga postures. Retreat guests range from those completely new to yoga to those looking to renew an existing practice to experienced practitioners wanting to go deeper.

About the food: Our meals are lovingly prepared using fresh organic ingredients mainly sourced from the local area. The menu is abundant, delicious and healthy. This is not a fast so you won’t go hungry, however we cut out meat, dairy foods, wheat, sugar, coffee and alcohol so your body will be lightly cleansing. Each morning after yoga we sip a fresh healthy juice before our lovely buffet breakfast. Lunch is another delicious meal and dinner healthy and nutritious. Tea and fruits are available throughout the retreat as well as purified drinking water. By the retreats end you’ll be feeling energised, clear and nourished with recipes and ideas for continuing your healthy eating at home.

I have had comments from people saying how well I look which is an extra bonus because I feel terrific. Thank you all for your warmth and wisdom.”
