Yoga retreats to restore and heal you. Read Island is a family owned Eco centre where we have been hosting retreats for over 20 years. We believe in a strong practice starting at 7 am with pranayama, Qi Kung and meditation followed by a nourishing breakfast. After breakfast we have a 2 hour yoga practice followed by lunch on the deck with a gorgeous mountain view. Free time after lunch for rest, hiking, swimming or kayaking touring our very magical property. Later we have a qi king/ tai chi class and restorative yoga. After a dinner from local ingredients salmon, garden salad, new potatoes we learn shiatsu and acupressure neck massage.
Friendly gentle teaching techniques with a sense of lightness and fun make this a memorable experience. Care is taken to create a suitable practice to take home.
We look forward to having you share our home and enjoying our healing natural ambiance.
