1st July 2017: Yoga and Surf Retreat in the rustic region of Cantabria.
I am delighted to host this one week Yoga and Surf Retreat at the Dreamsea Surf Camp, Cantabria, on the Atlantic coast of Northern Spain. The holiday will include 2 daily yoga classes, food, glamping accommodation and (optional) surf lessons. Enjoy an early morning uplifting yoga class, take the day to surf and enjoy some quality beach time then attend the afternoon workshop to learn something more about your practice. After a busy day of yoga, surf and beach time, you will be ready to enjoy a top quality meal prepared at the camp with a glass or two of local wine.
The yoga classes will delve into the details of the asanas that we perform on a daily basis. A combination of Vinyasa Flows, Technical Workshops, MF Release and Led Ashtanga Classes will facilitate the deepening of your practice whether that be Ashtanga Yoga or Vinyasa Flow. The retreat is ideal for those who practice yoga already and would like to understand the technicalities of their own practice a little more.
Morning Practice (2 hrs)
We will focus on strength, bringing awareness to particular key muscles either through Ashtanga Led Classes or Vinyasa Flows. We will use the technicalities of the postures to internalise and guide us through the Movement Meditation of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
Afternoon Practice (1.5hrs)
We will explore some Myofascia Release techniques to gain flexibility through the anatomical lines of energy that run though the body, in particular the front, back and side lines. We will then apply this to further access postures of the Primary Series. Afternoons will include workshops on Backbending and Hip Opening. Final 30 minutes of the class will be spent restoratively.
The retreat will include
2 daily yoga classes (21 hours of practice over 6 days)
Use of yoga space
7 nights glamping accommodation at Dreamsea Surf Camp
3 meals per day including a packed lunch
