Booking link, costs, teachings and schedule

Cost from £780 (single room from £1,200).

Booking is directly with Purple Valley.

Some context re retreats and flying. The last retreat that Norman taught abroad was 2019; this retreat inTenerife will be the last time Norman will teach at a venue that is only practically accessible by flying.


This retreat will be co-taught by Norman, Maitripushpa and Inna. Between them they offer a wealth of experience and knowledge. 


Meditation with Maitripushpa is varied and is both a great introduction to meditation for beginners or an amazing opportunity for existing practitioners to develop their practice. 

A couple of sessions each day allow Maitripushpa to tap into the vibe created by the asana classes. In sessions, guests can drop deeply into themselves using practices that may include body awareness, walking meditation, sitting or various contemplative practices. 

Maitripushpa has a strong Buddhist influence but years of study with varied traditions inform and enrich the meditation experience on this retreat.


Inna has been teaching Astanga yoga in London for over 15 years, and has led classes and retreats in Goa, Berlin, Paris, Italy and Scotland. She practiced, as well as assisted, for over ten years under the guidance of Hamish Hendry at Astanga Yoga London. In Mysore, she received the Authorisation from R.Sharath Jois in 2014.
Inna is fascinated by yoga in all its forms, its effects, and the intricate links between physical and mental well-being. She loves helping and watching students develop, and believes yoga is a lifelong learning process: a dedicated, regular – and yet non dogmatic– practice can only bring forth increased energy and happiness.


All yoga, accommodation and food is included in the price for the duration
