New year Yoga and Meditation retreat

retreat meditation 2016

 New year Yoga and meditation retreat
Thursday 14th – 17th January 2016
Location: Berga, Catalunya, Spain

Please see our retreat page for an overview of all of our retreats.

Jo and her team have been hosting the new years retreat for many years now and it remains a real favorite of both the team and participants.

The nature of the retreat is essentially nourishing and restorative. A perfect way to transition into the new year, within a calm, reflective, warm atmosphere. There is a beautifully balanced blend of high quality yoga tuition; long meditation sessions a bit of silence, walking in the forest, great company around the open fires, experienced and intuitive massage therapists whom give sessions which specifically support the nature of our retreat.The afternoon yoga sessions on this retreat are purely restorative using cushions and blankets to support the body in deep relaxation. The morning yoga sessions are slow yet strengthening and are subtly spun  from an essence of inquiry, exploration and sensitivity to the body. We explore sitting  twice a day and enjoy informal and insightful group conversation on yoga and meditation. After many years of practice, teaching and hosting retreats Jo has a very relaxed yet authentic approach to yoga and is passionate about making it as simple, relevant and applicable as possible  blending seamlessly into  our daily life experience.

Our retreat participants rave about our food! which is  very importantly nutritious, clean and wholesome. We love the planning of the menus and have a fuss free, gentle way of introducing people to a clean, energizing and nourishing diet.Yoga
