Retreats

 
Join myself (SonoYoga) and my chef husband, Richard (Bongo) for the perfect combo of Yoga and food.
We will be running a couple of open retreats per year which are listed on the drop down menus by location, but we can also be booked separately if you have a group interested.
I have gained qualifications in Hatha Raja Yoga (200 hours), Yin and Therapeutic Yoga (200 hours) and also Functional Anatomy (100 hours) as well as short courses and CPD’s in more
Functional Anatomy, Vinyasa Yoga, Forrest Inspired Yoga, Thai Yoga Massage and MFR.
My teaching style is a mixture of Yin (longer holds working into the fascia to aid flexibility) and Yang (the more dynamic style of yoga to build strength as well as flexibility)
This style of yoga is especially popular with those who lead a more active lifestyle and a lot of my clients in Edinburgh are those who do sports such as running, cycling and hiking. However, it is equally as good for those for a less active lifestyle. Each class tailored to suit individual’s needs and abilities.
Richard has been chefing around Edinburgh for over 20 years in various roles from Head Chef to Events Catering. He has trained in many different styles of cuisine and can adapt menus and dishes to cater for most types of diets and requests.
He always tries to source food from local suppliers where possible and his menus are seasonal and fresh.
In his leisure time, Richard is a keen mountain biker, so if you have a bike to bring with you, you would be welcome to join him riding some of the excellent trails in the Sierra Nevada mountains. A high level of fitness is required for these trails and a good, light bike!
The retreat format is generally a 90-120 minute Yang practice in the morning around 8am, followed by a healthy breakfast. Then a 60-90 minute Yin style practice in the evening followed by a 2 course vegetarian dinner.
The rest of the day is yours to enjoy the beautiful surroundings (unless an optional organised trip or activity is listed under each individual retreat)
Yoga styles, practice times and food can be adapted upon request.
Please let us know in advance of any food allergies/intolerances.
No alcohol will be served, but you are welcome to drink your own.
I am also available for Private Yoga lessons and Richard for cooking lessons at extra cost.
Retreat price includes Accommodation, 2 daily Yoga practices and 2 meals per day – breakfast and dinner. Please check each individual retreat for variations.
Flights and transfers are bookable separately (we can help you find transfers if you need or give car hire advice)
