Yoga Retreat with Nicola Wagstaff
Come & immerse yourself for 5 nights in a breathtaking retreat in Spain
"It's time to reconnect with ourselves, with our feminine energy and it's true power; a beautiful combination of calm-assertiveness with nurturing love. Are you connected to what makes you happy? To what brings you joy? To your passions that lead to peace and harmony in your body and mind? On this retreat our theme is self-love. We aim to take out the negative association that comes with the idea of looking after yourself - that when we hear the word 'selfish' we feel bad. Looking after yourself is in fact a selfless act in its selfishness. By taking time to pause, to relax, or to action the things you've always wanted to, it means you're in tune with yourself, resonating on the vibration of love. In turn we feel lighter, peaceful, calm and as we dissolve those judgements of ourselves, we dissolve the judgment of others. Let your light shine so bring that you help others see the way out of the dark. To do so, it means tending to yourself first. Then you can truly shine with authentic compassion and energy.
Whether you are a new mum, or your brood has flown the nest, or single and looking for someone to fill that gap; the relationship you have with yourself is the most important, and the longest and the quality of this one impacts the quality of all the others. Come and immerse yourself into 6 days, and 5 nights of Spring sunshine, like-minded ladies and pure energy of love. Listen to your body, listen to what you want to do and don't want to do. All our yoga sessions, meditations and mindfulness/ philosophy will be based on this theme, bringing you back to somewhere very familiar - you. Your true self.
As the weather slowly improves around April, we enjoy welcomed longer hours in the UK but often we experience the April showers. The timing of this retreat has been picked especially to optimise on the perfect Spanish weather of this time of year; not too hot to do Yoga outside but warm enough to enjoy your own relaxation around the pool. With fresh wonderful vegetarian food in abundance and daily gentle yoga with day trips, and an optional choice to stay longer in the resort if you wish to extend your holiday, this retreat lends itself to the perfect refresh and energy boost. With this fitting in over the bank holiday what better opportunity to extend your rest with just 2 days booked off work?

We believe in choice and options for your happiness and freedom, so you can opt out of any of the program should you wish to enjoy your quiet time alone, yet there will also be segments allowing for that time.

If you are more experienced Yogi there will be options for you to challenge even further.
