Thank you to all the yoginis who came on the Rejuvenating Weekend Yoga Retreat in Cornwall this weekend and made it such a special experience for myself and the group. Each time I bring together a group of strangers on a yoga retreat I am so overjoyed at the connection formed so quickly between one another!
Our retreat began with a Friday evening class to physically ease out travel tension and emotionally bring our minds in tune with our body. Then, we got to eat! I was thrilled to get Sam Lomas on board for this retreat, having already worked with him on Tiree this Summer. I think I can speak for everyone in saying that we were super impressed with Sam’s cooking – he made everything from granola and bread to curry, lentil salad, beetroot burgers, avocado chocolate mousse to apple and blackberry crumble. He even picked the beetroot and the blackberries! We will be hearing much more from Sam very soon, and I will be encouraging him to share some recipes!
Saturday morning I got everyone warming up their hips and shoulders ready for the day: after breakfast we all walked to the beach from where I took a group on a coastal path run to Crantock; in the afternoon we went back to the beach for a swim! Saturday evening I took the chance to lead a very relaxing restorative class to re-lengthen muscles and turn inward. Sunday began with a core focussed asana practise followed by an 8 mile walk/run to St Agnes and back, with the afternoon spent relaxing in the Retreat. Each class I taught took a different focus, both anatomically and spiritually.
This was the very first group to stay in the much eagerly awaited Retreat at Lime House and we were all hugely impressed! Check out the new interior images we have added to the website.
We will be running this retreat again in next year – see the site for dates and booking details.
