Taught by Helen, the morning classes will be dynamic and energising Vinyasa Flow. Helen will introduce concepts of Yoga Flow Running during these sessions and give you techniques to take into your coastal run later in the morning. The sessions will also wake up the body and warm you up for the running workshops. The evening classes will be more restorative to stretch out tension accumulated through running, helping you to recover faster. This retreat can be a great introduction for beginners to yoga, as well as building on knowledge for those with more experience and wanting to develop a home practice to aid with running.

I really enjoyed the weekend! Even though I was a complete beginner I was inspired by the yoga classes – since I got back I’ve done 30 mins of yoga every day so far! A highlight of the weekend! 🙂 – Rachael running retreat guest 2016
