Helen will guide you through a series of yoga classes that will not only benefit you as a runner in terms of strengthening key muscle groups and enhancing flexibility and range of motion, breathing and alignment; but will show you how to take the yoga principles into your running to help you run more efficiently and safely, reducing the risk of injury, increasing the ease and the fun and going further and faster with longevity.

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, 2016

“Had such a fantastic weekend, exceeded my expectations.”  Meeta, 2017

“Thank you so much Helen. Great runs, wonderful yoga and fantastic food in a beautiful place.” Sue, 2017
