Summer solstice brings days full of glorious sunlight. It’s a wonderful time to free up, let go and nourish at a very deep level as there’s often a sense of effortless joy and freedom in the air.
As we use this special time to re-calibrate and recharge, we’ll move the body in creative ways, breath deeply, and tune into our inner compass with gentleness, lightness, and humour. A space where you can smile and take a pause.
In your free time
Roam the island. Swim in the beautiful waters. And let the sand simply take your cares away.
Anna McColl will be guiding the dynamic sessions each morning. Through creative movement and embodied exploration of subtle and energetic bodies, she encourages students to find natural, comfortable alignment and safe movement patterns with attention to transition and the subtle spaces in-between. Interweaved with traditional yogic practices, she creates a held and fun space for students to feel safe in uncovering a deeper connection to the strength, flexibility, balance and ease in their own physical bodies and the deeper layers of enquiry that these practices inevitably uncover.

Alexandra Evans has been teaching yoga for the last twenty years. She also practices shiatsu, massage, and cranio-sacral therapy in an osteopathic clinic in London. She’ll be teaching the restorative yoga and breath work aspect of this retreat come the late afternoon.
“In every ancient script the wisdom of the breath is there, it is the most powerful medicine. Breath draws us to our senses and intuition. And as we listen to the body and go slowly the nervous system calms and allows the breath to takes us to the place of the subconscious mind and deep relaxation to begin." Says Alex
