All workshops are included but not compulsory, and they suit all levels, abilities and ages. Kids over 10 are welcome.

The activities have been carefully selected from the Om & Bass festival for this specific time of year.

•DIRISH• teaches the most wonderfully uplifting Shakti Dance Yoga, combining yoga, dance, mudras, mantras, asana, pranayama and other yogi-tastic delights. He has maximum vibes and love, great humour and wonderful beats to take you into an awesome ecstatic space. Even if you don't like dance, this is something everyone should try. The fun and exhilaration is next level and you will not regret it ;)
Dirish's classes at Om & Bass Festival are literally bursting at the seams. He is an absolute fave and a must.

•KWALI• is nothing short of a Goddess. Open hearted, grounded and experienced. Her Kundalini and Gong workshop will ignite the soul leaving you feeling tippety top in this Spring Awakening One Day Retreat. She is the womban to finish us off nicely for the day and send us onwards to our life beyond the bounds of the Retreat.........

Maximum gratitude to you both for joining me you wonderous humans.

•RACH• will teach an Awakening Yoga Flow in the morning which will be playful, deep, challenging, relaxing and fun. We will move though mixed level flows with variations for absolutely everyone and every body. There will be some arm balances and upside down time just for a laugh to get us in touch with our inner child, letting go and smiling a whole lot.
The walk to the Blue Bell Sea will be led by Rach, just cuz she's been there before and she well loves it ;) She will guide an open eyed meditation and breath practice amongst the flowers and trees. The you can stuff your faces with the lunch which is being provided.
