Accommodation in this stunning waterside home, with north west Scotland and Islands as your surrounding landscape.

Healthy, nutritious and substantial vegetarian meals

Morning & evening Yoga class looking out accross the surrounding landscape, snug with log burner

Additional workshops and daily meditation sessions

An opportunity to meet like minded people to inspire and develop your practice

Plenty of free time to enjoy the surrounding area and activities it offers

A chance to relax and let go of any 'to do' lists!

The Classes

If you choose to do all the classes this will help you truly feel the transformation a regular practice can bring. However if two classes each day is not for you then choose to come to either the morning or afternoon class, or just join in the meditation sessions.

The Yoga

One class will be an uplifting 1.5 hours Hatha Flow Yoga practice. This session will combine a sequence of Pranayama (breath work), Surya Namaskar (sun salutations), Asana (postures) and relaxation to lead you into the day feeling energised, refreshed and connected. There will be a fixed routine so that you can learn it and take the practice away with you to continue after the retreat, at home.

The other class will combine styles from Hatha, Yin or Kundalini Yoga and will consolidate elements we learn through the workshops.

A daily meditation session and pranayama techniques will help you to embrace the more subtle elements of Yoga. Some afternoons offer you a workshop to develop learning/undertstanding in a specific area of Yoga.

The Food

All meals in the house are included in the price*. A well balanced nutritious breakfast, a light lunch and wholesome evening meal. Non alcoholic drinks provided are also inclusive. All cooking is vegetarian, if you are a vegan or have any food allergies please let me know in advance.

*Two evening meals not provided so that you can explore the local restaurants, lunches are included if you are in when it’s served, otherwise you will be expected to get your own lunch out. 

  

The Accommodation & Area

Accommodation is spacious, with a few room options. The main house has been purpose built to give maximum light and incredible views. We practice Yoga alongside the full length windows so you can admire your inner and outer beauty.

In your free time you can take a trip to the Treshnish Isles to see the puffin colony or a sea safaris to look for the whales, dolphins and seals which inhabit the waters surrounding Mull. The Isle of Mull is noted for its sea eagles and otters, both of which are frequently seen around the coast.

There are plenty of places to eat out or to purchase excellent island food.  There is an outdoor decked area so if weather permits Yoga class can be taken outside. Inside is spacious enough so that you can socialise or find a quiet spot alone, there's also a summer house within easy walking distance.

I am sure this place will provide yet another inspiring setting for this years retreat.
