THE YOGA

The retreat will offer a mix of different yoga styles in order to explore the range of benefits, intensities and effects yoga has to offer.

Victor Hernandez will lead the morning Ashtanga for those with some experience, while Natalie will offer a restorative practice for a gentle start to the day. Afternoon sessions will be more of a dynamic flow, inspired by Strala and vinyasa styles, open to all levels, encouraging a deeper connection with the physical body.

You'll also have the opportunity to take part in our pranayama (breathing) and meditation, as well as exploring the energetic body via Kundalini and Yoga Nidra and doing some Yin Yoga by moonlight. Natalie will also host some yoga philosophy sessions for those interested in digging a little deeper :)

GETTING THERE

Bastia is the closest airport.

Alternatively, Calvi airport is around an hour away and there are lots of flights there from Paris (Orly)

The scenic route would be to fly to Nice, France and then take the morning boat to Bastia, which takes 4 hours
