Becky Pell (a.k.a rocknroll yogi) and I come together annually to host our popular ‘Find Your Balance’ astanga and restorative yoga retreats. You will come away feeling both revitalised and energised, and deeply rested and restored and you will have the opportunity to explore beautiful parts of the world whilst making new friends. Both healthy and indulgent, this is a chance to profoundly nourish yourself whilst deepening, or perhaps beginning your yoga practice.
'Find your balance' Astanga and Restorative yoga retreats with Sarah Vaughan and Becky Pell
What does 'find your balance' mean to those on our retreats?
It can mean so many things..finding some quiet time to relax and unwind, finding a deeper more profound space to think and reset, maybe some energetic time to really work with aspects of your practice that you may feel stuck with or bewildered by, and of course finding new friends and your 'tribe.'
The two practices of Astanga and Becky's style of restorative, yin and slow flow Yoga, whilst seemingly so different are at the same time so complimentary to each other. They originate from the same source of yoga in its ancient context, and from Krishnamacharya's teaching in Mysore in the 1930's.
As is often the case, in our most recent retreat we had a complete mix of yogis including beginners that have never practiced astanga before and 'seasoned' second series practitioners. In Puglia all our yogis come together and found their own Mysore practice that supports where they are in their own yoga journey. It was an absolute delight to watch and assist each and every one of the 'retreaters' grow through the week and quite often find things that they least expect!
Becky is a clinically trained registered yoga therapist and supports everyone through the week with restorative evening sessions. In Puglia the sessions were based on the prana vayus. We get energy prana in all sorts of ways; fresh healthy food, sunshine, relationships, spending time in nature and of course breathing...there was certainly an abundance of prana!
