La Gomera

La Gomera, Canary Islands: 8-15 July 2017

Bioenergetics, Yoga and Meditation week with Angus Ford-Robertson

We are happy to announce that Angus is leading a one-week retreat to this world-class Yoga venue in July 2017. This secluded venue, with its own organic farm, and overlooking a wild pebble beach, is located on La Gomera, one of the less-known of the Canary Islands.

This 7-day retreat will provide an opportunity to dive deep into your practice and explore techniques for discovering your self-awareness; bio-energetics, yoga, meditation, raja yoga (experiential self-inquiry) and pranayama. Angus will be teaching a Bioenergetics and Hatha Yoga-infused class in the mornings, while the evening sessions will be meditation, and other mindfulness practices for mentally and emotionally de-stressing… a daily timetable will look something like this:

8.00 am     Bioenergetics / Hatha Class

10.30 am   Brunch

12.00 pm   Free time for swimming in one of the two pools or at the beach, tourism and play…

5.00 pm     Meditation Class

7.30 pm     Dinner

A variety of early morning and afternoon meditation classes are held on-site in addition to your yoga programme,  you are welcome to attend these at no extra cost. Or just relax and spend your days basking in the sunshine on the lawns looking out to the balmy sea.

 

Food – During your stay, you will enjoy 3 superb organic vegetarian buffet meals per day, along with teas, coffee and spring water.  An honesty bar operates from which you may purchase fruit drinks, beer and wine. Black tea, coffees, herb teas made from fresh herbs and drinking water are all provided free of charge 24 hours. Snacks are also put out between meals – although with 3 vegetarian meals a day you may not need these!
