Yoga Retreats

A yoga retreat is an ideal way to immerse yourself in yoga away from day to day concerns. It truly allows you time to switch off and restore both mentally and physically. More often than not retreats are held in beautiful locations with great food and lovely company. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know anyone, it’s a great way to meet new friends and explore yoga in a fun relaxed way. There is normally ample time for space and to do other activities too. Why not join us on the mat at our next retreat in beautiful Barbados this November 2017.


Salute to the Sun ~ Barbados 2017
Holders House, Barbados
SAT 4th – SAT 11th November 2017

SALUTE TO THE SUN 2017 will take place at magnificent 17th century house, Holders House Set in its own stunning grounds on the wonderful west coast of the island, the house has a beautiful verandah looking out to sea, which provides the perfect backdrop for the twice daily flowing yoga practise with Judith Daniel and Mary Young,  It is elegant but comfortable with lots of sumptuous sofa areas for relaxation and reflection, gorgeous dining spaces, stylish bedrooms and a wonderful pool. The gentle waters of the Caribbean sea beckon a 15 minute walk or short drive away. Fabulous raw food expert Manuela Scalini, will delight with menus which are delicious and divine and highly skilled massage therapist, Claudia Tessarin,, will be on hand to soothe away any aches and pains.

As we salute the sun, we are bowing to the light within and acknowledging our oneness with all the sun creates… In our practise, the sun salutation brings about the harmony of body, breath and mind in a seamless flow, strengthening the body and opening us up to this reality. Throughout the week, we will explore many ways of saluting the sun, as it rises and as is sets, on the mat, at table, in the sand, on the water. We will bask in its healing rays and experience its radiance in the lush and vibrant nature of the colourful Caribbean.

Purify, re-energise and re-new on beautiful Barbados and let your inner sun shine through!

”The whole week was wonderful, and I loved the interspersing of you (Mary) and Judith teaching, it was a really good combination and led to all sorts of insights”

Jasmin, Salute to the Sun 2015
