Yoga not only keeps the body healthy and strong, it also helps us develop a calmer mind and approach to life. A yoga retreat allows us to experience the benefits of this life-changing practice. However, yoga's potential to effect our mind and body is magnified and enhanced further when built into a holistic mind and body retreat experience.
Bringing our awareness to the body as we move though a variety of poses, yoga lets us get to know our body, work with it, develop its capabilities and learn to respect its weaknesses. Regular practice can help us release years of built up physical and emotional tension.
Research has shown that yoga can help us manage physical and emotional health conditions, reduce blood pressure, stabilise blood sugar, decrease inflammation and improve our response to stress.
The Bodhimaya yoga retreat programme offers daily yoga classes – a more challenging class first thing in the morning and a restorative class in the evening. We also offer a more advanced class in the afternoon for those who have more experience with yoga.
All ages and levels of experience and fitness are welcome; our retreats gently introduce beginners to yoga and also offer those who are more experienced the time and space to deepen their practice.
Each day our yoga expert will be on hand to give you all the support you need as your explore this life-changing practice.
With only a small number of guests on each retreat and access to one-to-one yoga consultations throughout your stay, we are able build our yoga programme around your level of experience, fitness and mobility.
