WHAT IS YOGA?

The Oxford dictionary describes yoga as 'A Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, is widely practised for health and relaxation'. It's a way of life,  deeper awareness, a form of movement that connects the mind with the body and reconnects you to you inner self.  in a nutshell then, yoga teaches us how to relax  and restore the own power within our bodies whilst stilling the mind at the same time.

 

The numerous benefits of Yoga include:

  •  

  • Increases strength & flexibility

  • Connects the mind, body and spirit

  • Improves balance & co-ordination

  • Reduces stress & anxiety

  • Improves sleep

  • Massages internal organs & aids detoxification processes

  • Develops better breathing techniques

  • Improves tone and muscle strength

 

On a chillout retreat, our team of expert teachers will be guiding you through traditional Hatha yoga fused with vinyasa flow which is strong, powerful and rejuvenating and covers many of the well known and popular asanas.  

The morning sessions will be mainly dynamic with an aim of getting the heart beating faster and the energy rising...then the evening sessions are more about winding down and chilling out. Getting the mind, body and soul soothed and relaxed ready for a deep sleep.

 

WHAT IS PILATES?

According to the Oxford dictionary Pilates is 'A system of exercises using special apparatus, designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, and posture, and enhance mental awareness' .Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates.
