Transport to local photographic locations is included but any optional longer excursions may incur extra cost. Yoga mats and equipment will be provided.
A private outdoor swimming pool will also be available for use on this retreat.
Susan has been teaching Yoga for 25 years and originally trained in Iyengar Yoga. Since then she has practiced with many great teachers and her individual style has blossomed. " I believe that everyone is an individual and their Yoga practice should reflect that. In addition it is important to focus on alignment in the postures and to work safely. Releasing not forcing, expanding and growing not focusing on achievement".
Susan draws on Ayurvedic principles and is a Reiki master and massage therapist.
The classes will be suitable for all ages and abilities and will incorporate asanas, pranayama, meditation, love, joy and fun.
