2018 Retreats

3 Day Weekend Yoga Retreats

BIY is now running shorter 3 day yoga retreats to allow busy yoga students the time to come away and enjoy some ‘me’ time. The retreat is a perfect gift for you to take some time to deepen your experience and practice of Iyengar yoga, replenish and rejuvenate.

Spring Weekend Yoga Retreat

22 - 25 November 2018

Shayna will return to Continental House to teach this three day yoga retreat. Shayna has been studying and practising Iyengar yoga for 25 years and is known for her passion for the subject  and teaching clarity.

The retreat runs from 4pm on Thursday 22th November to after lunch on Sunday 25th November 2018.

Attend 9 classes over the 3 days, be fed amazing vegetarian food prepared by Alexis Popoulis. Alexis has been researching and cooking with edible weeds for many years and he shares his fascinating weed knowledge with us. Who would have thought dock dolmades? Simply delicious.

Share time and conversations with like-minded people, and relax in a beautiful and tranquil environment. Continental House now has an authentic Turkish bath (amman) up and running for our enjoyment.

Attending a residential yoga retreat is an excellent way to get away from the distractions of everyday life and deepen your understanding of yoga.
