Yoga, Breathing & Mindfulness
We will start the day with an energising yoga practice to wake up the senses and body for an inspiring and nourishing day ahead.
Your yoga practice will be an exploration of the senses and journey of discovery as we connect with the breath and body.
You will be taught by our Wild & Free yoga teacher Amanda who will guide you through each session with a sense of fun and adventure, exploring mindfulness and breathing techniques, Re-connect with your true nature. If you're a total beginner yogi then Amanda will guide you through the basics allowing you to access as many poses as possible, to find your Wild & Free Flow.
We will be exploring Yin & Yang practices, breathing & mindfulness and creating a sense of wellbeing, positivity and balance. Journaling if you wish - to set positive intentions of simply 'empty the head' of those thoughts!
Practices that you can take away with you and use again when you need them.
The final practice of the day will be a relaxing and restorative session, leaving you feeling peaceful and complete the day so you feel nourished from inside out.
Food & Cooking
Our traditional retreats in Cornwall and abroad always centre around meal times.
A good nutritious diet provides the balance and positive energy that bodies need to function well (and perform out in the water on the surfboard), as well as helping us stay in shape mentally and physically.
We want to bring this all important aspect of our retreats to your home and give you the opportunity to make some of the lovely food that our passionate chefs prepare on our retreats.
During the cooking classes our chef, Nikita, will be taking you through some traditional and her favourite plant based (vegan) recipes step by step and explaining how to prepare each delicious meal live online.
Nikita talks you through the ingredients, their nutritional values to help you learn some skills in the kitchen to take away and use again and to maximise your potential through your diet.
This informative day will leave you inspired with knowledge and insights into eating a balanced diet and 'gut health'.

A little bit about our Chef...
Nikita lives in North Devon and on the doorstep of one of our favourite surf beaches. So also loves a surf too! She has worked on retreats for a number of years sharing her passion for food and the benefits of the Ayurvedic diet.
Nikita is a vegan and gluten free development chef who last year helped set up a vegan restaurant in Brighton and regularly cooks for Ayurvedic retreats at the Mandala Yoga Ashram in Wales. Nikita is passionate about teaching people to create food that nourishes the body, awakens the taste buds and looks after the planet. She has been teaching plant based cooking classes for five years and runs a consultancy business called Vegan Wise.
"My mission is to educate and inspire people towards a healthy body and mind, through knowledge, skills and tools in vegan food and sustainability"
Nikita will be joining us on our up and coming retreats in September, so if you are joining us on a live Retreat you'll get to experience her food in person too!
