Back to Basics Yoga Retreat



Friday 08/03 – Sunday 10/03


Revitalise your body, mind and soul with a Yoga Retreat that will build from the foundation up. We cannot rise without roots.

Intertwining a detailed breakdown of postures with distinct flows, the classes will allow students to develop both an appreciation of individual asanas and develop an understanding of the interconnectedness of them all. We will also touch on conscious wellness and how important the choices we make for ourselves, such as our diets, our exercise, our thoughts, impact our world AND our planet.

On Saturday afternoon, we will have a cooking demo of a delicious vegan cheesecake.

~A beautiful weekend to remind us that all our choices contribute to our outcome~
