Yoga Orchid runs weekend yoga retreats and week-long yoga holidays in a variety of stylish and comfortable venues in beautiful, peaceful environments in both the UK and abroad. The retreats and holidays enable participants to unplug and refresh with yoga, mindfulness, meditation and stillness. Allowing the normal stresses of life to melt away and illustrating how it’s possible to extend yoga and mindful awareness into everyday life.
The holidays are presented by Regina, a highly qualified and an experienced Senior Yoga Teacher (SYT), which is the highest level achievable with the Yoga Alliance. Regi encourages students to work at their own ability with modifications and adaptations to suit all levels; from beginner, through enthusiast, to expert.
Each day starts peacefully as we gather in silence before breakfast to enable us to stay centred and to connect to the stillness during Meditations and Pranayamas (conscious awareness of breath).
This is followed by a wonderful two-hour Yin & Yang Yoga class. Yin yoga comprising restorative long held poses while Yang is all about rejuvenating flows. We meet again in the late afternoon for a more gentle, restorative Yin Yoga class.
All of which leaves plenty of free time to enjoy the surroundings. Whether that’s sightseeing in the local area, having a peaceful swim or relaxing with a good book and soaking up the atmosphere.
All Yoga Orchid venues provide fabulous healthy food – catering for plenty of dietary options. Most of the venues have beauty salons or spas where guests can enjoy beauty treatments. We welcome everyone with an interest in yoga – couples, friends, yoga buddies, and those travelling alone.
