Yoga Holiday Daily Program Schedule

Yoga Daily Program

This is our basic all-inclusive yoga holiday option. It includes your chosen accommodation, all meals, and both morning and afternoon yoga sessions.

Yoga Daily Program in Detail

The classes are typically conducted in our beachfront yoga shala facing the sea or in the main practice yoga shala.

Morning Yoga Sessions

7:30 am - Meditation and Breathwork Practice for all levels

We follow a holistic approach to yoga, aiming to ground students properly and help them grow from there. We open the day up with a sitting (meditation) practice of contemplation coupled with dedicated breathwork practices. This is excellent to learn and take home, to be done anywhere and great to handle stress and improve health.

8 am - Morning asana class options

Depending on your level and amount of previous experience with yoga, we try to offer separate classes for different levels. This may vary depending on the numbers and the in-house program.

For those newer to yoga there will either be a simple guided ashtanga based class, meaning the classical poses are taught and encouraged to be memorized, flowing from breath to breath. This is an excellent start to yoga and a real practice. From here it is possible to leave with the basics of a practice, take it home with you and and continue it at another studio or be able to practice yourself while alone. From here it is easy to participate in the ashtanga self-practice classes, known as "mysore style".

To learn more about Ashtanga, Mysore style, and Yoga please visit these pages on our site describing them in more detail..

On some days, there may be a gentle class that includes some flow, some basic hatha asanas and some technique and detail. This can help you understand better and begin to learn more about the yoga practice.

The Ashtanga mysore style, in particular-is a very thorough approach to the practice of yoga. The sequence begins with basic postures, later opening up and revealing its depth as students continue to practice. The Mysore approach works with students individually, so that they progress according to their level. A beginner starts with only a few poses, gradually adding more and more as your practice develops and your proficiency and commitment evolve. This ensures that the student is always challenged and growing while, at the same time, practicing at the level appropriate for you. To learn more about Ashtanga, Mysore style, and Yoga please visit these pages on our site describing them in more detail.

For newcomers to the Ashtanga series, a minimum of one week's stay is recommended. Those with experience in practice can do shorter stays. The minimum stay is three days. All are encouraged to do longer stays, as the teaching can then fully sink in and practice can begin to reveal itself.

Afternoon Restorative Session

5:00 pm - Restorative-Yin-Hatha Yoga with Breathworkclass

These afternoon restorative classes alternate throughout the week on themes of gentle flow, yin, basic hatha and qigong and are a rich addition to guests yoga holiday. All involve a certain amount of breathwork practice.

Gentle-flow yoga classes are light yet detailed and enjoyable. The classes are guided by the teacher, and students of any level can participate. They are perfect for those who want to take it easy in asana, but still be (mildly) challenged, or for those doing a detox program.

Yin Restorative yoga is a blissful, gentle, deeply healing and meditative practice. It is ideal for relieving stress and tension and works on the connective tissues and internal systems of the body. All asanas are seated or reclining and maintained for a few minutes, supported by props as need be.

Hatha basics explore the fundamentals of Yoga. Asanas (postures) are held for longer time with attention to details of alignment and often with rest phases between postures. Basic inversion poses may be included.

Qigong happens when veteran yogini, Dorien, now in her 60s, is on site. She shares with you the basics of this Taoist practice that is both healing and energizing, involving soft whole body movements with synchronized breathing.

All our other teachers are dedicated to the practice and life of yoga. Our intention for your yoga holiday is to offer a thorough, clean, and, of course, enjoyable approach to learning and practicing yoga.

Testimonials

Very professional instructors, good adjustments, and new point of views.
Alina, Romania 2014

It is very beautiful and an ideal place for body and soul retreat for anybody. If I knew it I could have visited here earlier! I would love to visit here again and again whenever I can.
Hiah, Vienna 2011

This is the first time I have ever done anything like this. After 7 days of detox, I feel absolutely fabulous. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who is thinking about making changes in their lifestyle and to anyone who feels the need to cleanse or simply just to get away and relax.
Kerry, South Africa 2012

The Wellness Director, Tang and Rachel and the wonderful bevy of therapists have been wonderful in supporting me in the detox journey. They have created a balanced haven of nourishing Therapies and a supportive diet regimen to support my needs as a Yoga practitioner. The week was a great opportunity to 'reboot' the system after years of poor dietary and lifestyle habits. Thank you!
Liann, Malaysia 2011

I have lived with Candida for over 20 years, managing it with diet and supplements, sometimes symptoms are bad, sometimes not. This detox has allowed me to feel disciplined enough to be more strict and to attempt to finally banish all symptoms, which have flared up due to recent pressure and stress. I feel amazing, strong, clear and really focused. Thank you
Vicki, UK 2010
