Indoor activity studio and outdoor yoga terrace
Activities often take place on our wonderful yoga terrace with scenic views of the mountains and sea. It’s a lovely space to practice your warrior pose a part of your yoga retreat! When the weather is cooler, windy or wet, we move inside into our lovely indoor activity studio. The activity studio has fans and air-conditioning to keep you cooler during the summer, and heating to stay warm during the cooler winter months. We also have a supply of rebounders, hand weights, plenty of yoga mats, blocks and straps for your use during your yoga retreat, plus blankets to keep you nice and snug during your savasana! You are welcome to use both areas for personal practice or meditation when classes are not scheduled.

We have a large indoor communal area, which contains reception, the dining room plus sofa and TV with DVD. You can replenish your stock of herbal teas, bottled water (hot and cold), fresh fruit or fresh lemon and ginger here. We have a book exchange, where you can swap your novel, and a growing collection of light-hearted and inspirational movies to watch in your room snuggled up beneath a blanket! We also have a small library of educational books and DVDs, which you can borrow during your stay, to explore as part of your life makeover retreat, or to learn more about nutrition, yoga, meditation or health. This area has wifi. There is also a separate guest bathroom (with shower and hair-drier) and luggage storage facility.
