From observing many different yoga groups over the years, we have learned what guests really want from a yoga retreat and we feel we can offer the perfect combination of yoga and relaxation, giving guests a chance to experience two quality yoga classes a day as well as make the most out of being in our beautiful eco retreat with all of the facilities that we can offer, such as massage and beauty treatments, an afternoon of horse riding, visiting the beach or simply lounging by the pool with a glass of delicious local wine or a good book.
Lisa is a close and trusted friend of Utopian Retreats. As a trained professional dancer her classes flow with grace. She is a gentle and intuitive teacher who enables everyone in her class to work at their own pace, enabling students to deepen their flexibility and well being through close attention to breath and awareness of their inner body and alignment. She believes passionately in the power and the therapeutics of yoga and the effects this has on the mind, body and spirit. Her classes are fun, informative and transformational.
Our bespoke course with Lisa will include two classes daily. The morning class will be an Anusara Inspired Vinyasa Flow to energise and strengthen your core followed by a Resorative Yoga Class in the evenings, which will be more relaxing and meditative. All of our classes are optional and there will be time in each class for individual attention. Non yogi partners are of course welcome to come and enjoy the facilities of Utopian Retreats which is a popular relaxation and holiday resort, for a discount of £200.
There will of course, be plenty of time to relax and write at your leisure, either on your private terraces or in our extensive and verdant gardens and there will be a welcome Barbecue at our Tiki Bar where you will be able to feast on fresh local fish, meat or vegetarian kebabs and salads from the gardens.
