Get away from it all at this springtime yoga retreat in Guernsey from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 May 2017.
Based at Les Cotils, an elegant Victorian house close to St Peter Port, the restorative retreat includes multiple yoga sessions with pranayama, guided meditation and yoga nidra.
The yoga takes place against a beautiful coastal backdrop with sea views over to the neighbouring islands of Herm and Sark. Classes are suitable for all levels of ability except absolute beginners.
Healthy vegetarian meals are included that make the most of Guernsey’s fresh, local produce, while herbal teas are offered before every class. Guests can enjoy unlimited wholesome snacks to keep energy levels high across the three days.
There is also free time within the programme where guests can go for a walk along Guernsey’s stunning coastal paths, enjoy the peace of Les Cotils’ 12 acres of gardens, or take part in an optional guided run or walk to experience another perspective of the island.
At an additional cost, guests can book a reflexology session or channel their creativity with a jewellery session with local experts.
The Guernsey Yoga and Wellbeing Retreat is the first residential break in Guernsey run by local yoga specialists, Beinspired, which offers a regular schedule of yoga classes and workshops on the island.
The retreat is run by Guernsey-born Emma, whose passion for yoga, Reiki and wellbeing has taken her all over the world.
Having qualified as a Yoga Alliance registered teacher in Byron Bay, Australia, Emma has continued her studies with an Advanced Yoga Teaching (Hatha Yoga) Diploma and a Diploma in Yoga Therapy from the British School of Yoga. She has also completed two levels of the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy training in Canada.
Price: From £255 per person, which includes all yoga sessions, two dinners, two breakfasts and one lunch, herbal teas and unlimited snacks. Single rooms at Les Cotils for the two nights are priced from £100.
Guernsey is less than an hour’s flight from the UK. Aurigny offers return flights on the weekend of the retreat from £149, departing London Gatwick at 08.30 on Friday 5 May and returning on Sunday 7 May at 16.30. www.aurigny.com
