Yoga Retreat @ Talalla, 29 May-1 June 2014

Announcing the last 4 day retreat before I return to Australia!
This retreat is once again being held at Talalla--a dedicated yoga retreat venue.  During the retreat you will have the opportunity to explore fundamental and complex yoga postures and basic breathing and meditation techniques.  
I will be teaching a different sequence in each of the 6 scheduled yoga sessions.  These sequences have been specifically designed to improve the circulation of blood and energy through active movements and spinal movement in particular.  There are plenty of challenging arm balances as well as variations of traditional postures to work on.

We need confirmation of rooms with payment by Friday May 9th to ensure the venue can hold the rooms for us.  Because there are limited rooms I am encouraging people to please consider sharing so that as many people can participate as possible.    
 Arrive Thursday 29th May afternoon - Depart Sunday 1st June after breakfast by Noon
Venue: Talalla Retreat
Classes: 6  x 2 hour classes

Aside from the usual yoga there is the opportunity to relax by the pool or at the beach (should be better swimming by then!), or get a massage.  I have done so much yoga study and have undertaken a yoga therapy course so I am also happy to make myself available for discussion in between as well if anyone thinks they need more yoga!

The weekend will start arriving Thursday.  First yoga class starts on Thursday afternoon at 4.30pm.  From then we will have 2 classes on Friday, 2 on Saturday, and 1 on Sunday.  We depart after class and breakfast on the Sundays by Noon. 
 There are only a limited number of rooms available so please book early, confirming with full payment by Friday May 9th.  Unfortunately we cannot refund once booked but if you can find another person to take your spot that is fine!
The rate includes:
   All yoga classes
   Full board (tea/fruit before yoga; buffet style breakfast served at table; a la carte lunch (there is a menu to choose an item from), buffet style dinner)

You need to pay for any extra drinks or snacks you might have if the mega breakfast and dinner leave you hungry!  

Normal timetable is as follows
7am                     tea/fruit (if desired)
7.30-9.30am         yoga
9.30                     breakfast
RELAX                  (have massage, swim, read, have lunch around 1 or 2ish depending on how full you are after breakie)
4.30-6.30pm         yoga
7pm                     dinner

The prices quoted below are based on 3 nights per person.   You need to find a person to share with if you opt for double or triple but Tilak can try to put you in touch with other people if you need.   There are also some family rooms and rates available so please contact Tilak if required.  Children are allowed at Talalla and they can even arrange a babysitter if you request early (about Rs 1000/day).  The only thing we ask is that there is no pool play during yoga classes as the pool is in front of the yoga hall and it is unfair to ask kids to be quiet in a pool so it might be better for them to be at the beach during those times!

Full payment is required by 9th May to confirm our space at Talalla. You can arrange paying Tilak directly or he can provide bank account details for you to transfer to if that is easier.

Single 3 nights                   Rs. 39,000/-
Double (share) 3 nights     Rs. 32,000/- per person
Triple (share) 3 nights       Rs. 30,000/- per person

Please contact myself or Tilak for payment:

Hope to see you there.
