These one day yoga retreats in London have proved to be really enjoyable, both for us organising them and for the participants, many of whom are now regular and enthusiastic attendees. They are also popular as gifts and I am happy to send a PDF gift voucher if you would like to purchase a place on the yoga retreat for a loved one or colleague.
You don't have to attend yoga classes in London regularly to join us on the urban yoga retreat as I try my best to make these yoga days suitable for everyone, from beginners to those with experience of yoga. I encourage students to listen to their own bodies attentively and learn how to adapt poses and sequences to suit their own level of strength, stamina and flexibility. You will have the opportunity to develop your practice during an extensive morning yoga session where we will work on various core strengthening techniques and longer held poses that bring with them a deeper, meditative quality to our yoga practice.
The morning session on the urban yoga retreat will be followed by a freshly prepared vegetarian lunch where we like to produce new and interesting seasonal dishes for us all to try followed by some of our homemade cakes. After lunch, we will go out and enjoy some fresh air on one of our traditional 'yoga hikes' together around the Serpentine and Kensington Gardens, which is really close by.
After our walk, the afternoon yoga class will be more restorative and focussed on relaxation. It will comprise yoga gently, breathing techniques and a deep, guided relaxation known as yoga nidra. You will get the chance to experience the essence of yoga and the way it unites us all over a longer period than you can in a regular yoga class and also have the opportunity to get to know some lovely like-minded people, enjoy some beautiful urban scenery and return home feeling thoroughly relaxed and rejuvenated.
We remain committed to keeping our one day urban yoga retreats, in London, as affordable to as many people as possible and have kept them unchanged since 2009 at £60! This price includes all drinks, snacks and the freshly prepared vegetarian lunch.
