SAVE THE DATE!
This SPRING TIME retreat will take place at one of the most magical times of the year in Exmoor, Lynton (North Devon) from Friday April 24th to Monday 29th April 2024.
WHAT TO EXPECT…..
The North Devon Coast is renowned for being an ideal destination for hikers. The unspoiled beauty of Exmoor National Park is exceptional, and the sweeping, picturesque views along the challenging coastal paths are truly awe-inspiring.
April is an INCREDIBLE month to visit Exmoor and we have prepared two remarkable guided hikes for the weekend that are guaranteed to put the SPRING back in your step and revitalise your physical well-being.
There is a shorter and a longer hike option to cater for different fitness levels. Hikes will typically be 3-4 hours long (they are worth it!) and between 4-8 miles long depending on the option you choose.
The vast expanse of Exmoor National Park provides the perfect setting for this powerful retreat.
Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a novice just embarking on your yoga journey, we invite you to partake in a transformative experience on the mat. Yogimomo will expertly lead you through a fusion of yoga poses, breath techniques, and guided meditations designed to empower you to shed old habits, release what no longer serves you, and fully embrace the present moment.
The morning Kundalini yoga session will invigorate the body through music, movement, and breath. Mourad will provide a supportive and inclusive space to awaken the body’s vitality, and to release stress patterns. Discover for yourself the powerful, safe, and simple practice of Kundalini yoga and reap the amazing immediate results and profound long-term benefits.
**NB** You do not need any prior experience of Kundalini Yoga to participate in this retreat!
In the evening, the restorative yoga practice will gently stretch the body, soothe your mind, and bestow a deep sense of tranquility and serenity. Feel any stress and tension melt away with this beautifully relaxing and restorative practice.
Yogimomo (Mourad) received his classical training in the ancient art and science of Kundalini Yoga at SKY (The School of Kundalini Yoga UK)
His mentors included world-renowned teachers such as Gurunam Dr Joseph Michael Levry, Guru Dharam Singh, Darryl O’Keefe and Bridget Layton Minor, all of who had previously been students of the late Yogi Bhajan.
He shares this ancient practice from a deeply intuitive place and empowers his students to develop a practice they can take anywhere. Mourad teaches students of all levels of fitness and experience and focuses on creating a joyful learning environment that is safe, effective and accessible to all.
Mourad’s classes are crafted to quiet the mind and inspire the body through music, movement, and breath. He enjoys integrating conscious alignment and proper breathing techniques into engaging and challenging sequences. This, he believes, creates the opportunity to clear the slate-physically and emotionally, and to make space for the connection to spirit.
Mourad runs yoga retreats and workshops combined with nutrition and cooking classes all over Europe, all year around.
Get ready to BOUNCE into a healthier lifestyle with our invigorating mini-trampoline sessions! The low-impact nature of rebounding reduces stress on joints while providing a high-intensity cardiovascular workout.
Resistance training with mini-bands are an enjoyable and effective way to overload your muscles and prime your metabolism.
Pilates emphasizes core strength, stability, and flexibility, providing a well-rounded and holistic approach to fitness.
Our commitment to simplicity ensures that our workouts are accessible to all fitness levels, making it easy for everyone to participate and see positive changes in their bodies.
Prepare to elevate your fitness game and embrace a new level of vitality!
