A Relaxing Yoga Break for Joy and Longevity

Our yoga retreats have taken us to yoga centres in Spain, Bali, India, and Portugal. But for 2020, we want to set the bar higher and be immersed in a culture that promotes wellbeing and joyful long living! So we looked to Sardinia, one of five Blue Zones in the world. Blue Zones are areas with exceedingly high rates of centenarians who are happy and healthy. The environment is a big factor in longevity, so we said "Let's have a piece of this!"  Nestled in the north of the island, Balaiana  is a magical setting for our 2020 Sardinia yoga holiday. Located 300 meters above sea level, you can watch the sun rising until it sets behind the mountains. It is a place where we can truly reconnect with our inner self. With a wild beach only 20 minutes away, a beautiful pool on site,  a dedicated yoga space, and a guided hiking trip, the eco retreat has all the ingredients necessary to reinforce your desire for joy and longevity.

A Yoga Retreat Led by Experienced Practitioners

With almost 30 years’ collective experience in the practices of yoga as well as in the fields of medicine, psychotherapy, and hypnotherapy, Charlene and Christoph are dedicated practitioners of exploring human potential. Their diverse yet complimentary approaches bring together creative, feminine movement, mindfulness, relaxation, and awareness to those who join what is surely one of the best yoga retreats available in 2020. Together, Charlene and Christoph bring a unique approach to your yoga holiday that is currently benefiting World Cup footballers, people in their 80s, medical professionals, social workers, and busy mums. These varied students are linked together by the wish to feel optimally well and in harmony. 

 

Through their lived experience, you'll benefit from embodied yoga practices, wellbeing coaching tools, yoga philosophy, and methods for deep relaxation.

 ​An overview of Your Sardinia Yoga Break

 

The best yoga retreats make the most of the peace and abundance found in nature. Our 2020 experience will be rooted in connecting with nature to encourage its healing effects. The mornings will begin with meditation and breath work followed by a rejuvenating embodied yoga practice. The evening sessions will include varied practices with all focussed upon deep relaxation and introspection that will have a transformative effect on your life beyond the retreat. The yoga holiday will include a guided 2 -3 hour hiking trip, as well as excursions to surrounding areas. In all, you will be encouraged to heighten your awareness as your body enters a deeply relaxed way of being.

“I am certain that the benefits of the time I spent on retreat with you in Portugal are lasting far beyond the week itself.  Since returning I have found the motivation to develop new habits and routines including a daily yoga or meditation practice.  I am so grateful to you both for sharing your wisdom and experience, which has inspired me to commit to these changes, and I’ve already booked my place in Sardinia in August 2020, knowing it will be another valuable week of self-care, learning... and fun!”

— Laura C, Manchester

“A heartfelt thank-you from the three of us for such a restoring and nourishing retreat. We all loved your classes, and the attention to detail was fantastic. Thank you for offering your time and teachings in such a generous way.

“What I really love about your teachings is that you’ve collected a huge amount of movement in all your self exploring and your previous trainings. You are authentic and embody what you teach. I like the simplicity of postures which turn out to be super effective. I become more aware of my body. Everybody feels very welcome in your course wherever the person is in their own yoga experience.”

"Just done a weekend with Charlene in the Peak District. It was amazing. I love Charlene's style of yoga - it makes me feel very peaceful and serene and she mixes great movements with a really interesting and flexible approach that focuses on the individual and their needs.She's also fantastic fun and very knowledgeable. I wish I lived closer to her classes because I can't think of a teacher I'd rather learn with." Laura Ellis
