Beginners Yoga Weekend Retreat – Level 1

27 – 29 September 2024


New to yoga and curious to discover its benefits? Join us for a Beginners Yoga Weekend Retreat from 27 – 29 September. This weekend retreat provides a complete experience of the yoga lifestyle. Gentle yoga classes, nutritious vegetarian meals and a walk along the Thames make this a mini-retreat in the heart of London.

Over the weekend, you will gradually work on developing strength, flexibility, proper breathing, concentration and relaxation. Feelings of calm and well-being can already be experienced after the first class. The course includes an introduction to the yogic diet and its health benefits.
