Subtly strengthening, deeply relaxing and disarmingly powerful yoga with Jim Tarran
Off-grid and awesome, this retreat is a real game-changer. Set in the splendour of the Scottish Highlands, with everything you could want for a perfect yoga holiday: private riverside hot baths, sento dome hot tub, sauna, underfloor-heated waterfall view yoga studio, Jim's peerless teaching and a vegetarian chef to knock your socks off.
“4 nights of delicious nutritious vegetarian/ vegan food, yoga with a top class teacher and hobbit-like surroundings in the Scottish hills. Outdoor bathing in the mist and rain with boiling hot water powered by off-grid hydroelectric!"
In the fabulous yoga studio that overlooks the waterfall, you will be guided through two wonderful daily classes; a mix of asana, pranayama, detailed workshop instruction, partner work, mantra, meditation and restorative work.
Jim's classes are a potent celebration of life - a joyful, deep yet gentle exploration of body, breath and mind, where laughter, joy, love, connection and gratitude are all key elements.
The 60 sqm studio has underfloor heating and a wonderful energy. During Savasana your body can melt into the warmth of the floor whilst the mind is gently soothed by the sounds of the nearby waterfalls.
Complete beginners through to advanced yogis and even non-yoga partners will love this retreat.
Plenty of time to make the most of the Highland scenery - and those baths...
