Rest, Rejuvenate and Restore Programme

  • Wake up to a sunrise yoga class or greet the sun on a walk along the cliff path.
  • Nourish your body with a breakfast of fresh fruit, a full vegetarian-cooked breakfast, or hot buttery croissants!
  • Gather for late-morning yoga philosophy, mudra, and mantra sessions with teachers who each have over 30 years of experience.
  • Enjoy a leisurely afternoon exploring the local area, walking to the beach, or reading a book by the pool.
  • Relax with a restorative yoga and meditation class
  • Complete the day with dinner - enjoying the extensive hot buffet and luscious desserts.

'This retreat exceeded all of my expectations, it has been out of this world. I feel I have become new from the inside out. Everything contributed - from the sun, the sea so near to the hotel, the fabulous teachings, the sense of nurturing and care from the tutors, support staff, and fellow students.  I have so many treasures to take home.'
