From the moment I met Sally-Anne I felt welcome and cared about. It was my first retreat and in fact my first attempt at yoga...the days passed wonderfully full of love and nurturing. Sally-Anne is a born natural yoga teacher...I was shown compassion and encouragement everyday...the whole experience, the yoga, the lovely food created by the gentle soul Katy and all the visiting holistic therapists was second to none leaving me relaxed and happy .. I came to the retreat feeling anxious and stressed but left joyful and proud of myself. Thank you Sally-Anne.

YOGA & AYURVEDA

Sally-Anne is 500hrs (RYT) trained in Quantum Yoga - a method of personal practice optimisation, using Ayurvedic assessment tools to help you understand your dominant “body mind constitution” or “dosha” - “vata” (air & ether), “pitta” (fire & water) and “kapha (earth & water). 

Quantum Yoga is predominantly based on a dynamic vinyasa flow, which works with your personal nature “prakriti”. However, a more gentle practice is always encouraged, whenever your body requires it, and the evenings will often be spent enjoying sunset restorative or yin yoga.

The retreat is suitable for all ages and abilities.

Variations are offered for different levels, so you should feel challenged without ever being be pushed too far.

YOUR HOME FOR THE RETREAT

Casa Chi is a gorgeous home away from home, nestled in the hills above Santa Eularia, with the town and beaches less than 30 mins stroll away, there are plenty of places to explore if you’d like to get to know the local area, plus all the delights of the north of the island are only a short taxi ride away - offering secluded beaches and rocky coves to discover during your free time each day.

Cala-Xuclar_beach shot.jpg
Cala-Xuclar-rock pools.jpg

An authentic Ibiza experience, away from the hustle and bustle, and a far cry from the more touristy areas of the island.

Here you can immerse yourself in nature and enjoy the incredible sunset skies. 

In between classes, you’ll have plenty of time for relaxing by the pool, reading, sleeping, walking in nature, soaking up the sunshine

QUANTUM YOGA IMMERSION WEEKEND

poundon house, oxfordshire

1 - 3 DECEMBER 2017

IMG_1493.jpg

Thank you to all those amazing humans who were part of our first UK collaboration with dear friend and fellow Quantum Yoga teacher (RYT 500hrs) Roanna Doleman, aka Yoga Ro.

 1-3 December 2017, we spent a glorious weekend of tuning into our natures, finding nourishment, peace and balance before the madness of the festive season really kicked off! At the stunning Poundon House in Bicester, Oxfordshire, we took the opportunity to dive deeper into our yoga practices and into the world of Yoga's sister science Ayurveda.

Through meditation, pranayama, dynamic asana practice and Ayurvedic assessment, we learnt how to design an ideal practice that personally suits each individual's varying needs. By connecting inwards to our true natures (prakriti), we created harmony within the body and the mind, inspiring the group to move towards balance and find more creativity and life force, empowering them to manage their own health and wellbeing requirements, using the wisdom of Ayurveda. 

A deep dive into the worlds of Yoga and Ayurveda, learning how to design an ideal practice, whilst giving a taste of the Quantum Yoga Teacher Training experience. 

Poundon house is located in idyllic, serene grounds, with beautiful bedrooms and a drawing room with a roaring log fire.

It is the perfect winter country escape and only 1 hour on the train from London!

Watch this space for more Poundon House retreats! :)

INDIAN SUMMER was our first official Yoga Light Vibes retreat collaboration

with the amazing &Sister at beautiful Poundon House.

We firmly believe in celebrating nature and especially the natural flow and change of the seasons. As well as providing a huge inspiration, these periods of transition are a fantastic opportunity to look inward, reflect and find momentum for any change in your life that needs to happen.

There is no better way to wake up on a weekend than full of life, love, energy, yoga and a refreshing walk in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. The yoga retreat is taking place as the Summer draws to an end and Autumn truly begins, so we will also be expressing gratitude for the Summer and honouring the Autumn with ceremony, ritual and plenty of fresh air to blow the cobwebs away. On our Indian Summer yoga retreat, you will rise to a delicious healthy smoothie, experience dynamic morning asana to energise your physical body, afternoon restorative practices to nourish your souls, replenish with delectable healthy food, go deeper with meditation, balance with pranayama, refresh with long country-walks and connect with like-minded, lovely souls.

As well as a lot of time in the shala with SallyAnne, there will be sound healing on Saturday night, barefoot walks in the garden, star-gazing, hot baths to relax in, massages and treatments to release tension. This carefully crafted yoga retreat will nourish your soul and guide you lovingly on with an open mind and strong heart.

Expect the unexpected and be prepared to de-tech and disconnect from the fast-paced life we are so accustomed to!

The ultimate English countryside retreat!
