About this retreat

Come for four days of yoga, meditation and just being in the beautiful setting of Lime House Yoga on the Cornish coast. The yoga will be a gentle exploring of ashtanga in the morning (taught with love and props); in the afternoon there will be Yin yoga: a practice of softness and stillness followed by an afternoon meditation session each day.

The morning yoga class is Ashtanga with love.
 Plenty of props and plenty of options. Although based on the primary series, the class takes a slower pace than traditional Ashtanga classes - and there will be variations and other possibilities available. There is definitely room for manoeuvre.

The afternoon class is Yin yoga.
 A beautiful way to balance the stronger and more dynamic form. Yin yoga is much slower. We stay in postures for a longer periods of time.

Together Norman and Maitripushpa have many years of experience. They know that yoga and meditation can be enjoyable ways to make available energetic potential that could enhance our lives. They know that yoga and meditation can help us to become more flexible, physically stronger and improve our stamina, focus and awareness. They aspire that practitioners on retreat experience release of tensions and anxieties.

Introducing Maitripushpa

Meditation with Maitripushpa is varied and can be a great introduction to meditation or an amazing opportunity for existing practitioners to develop. A couple of sessions each day allow her to tap into the vibe created by the asana classes.

Guests drop deeply into themselves in her classes that may include body awareness, walking meditation, sitting or various contemplative practices.

Maitripushpa has a big Buddhist influence but years of study with varied traditions inform and enrich the meditation experience on this retreat. She is constantly watching and learning how the two practices influence each other.


All yoga, all accommodation, all food is included in the price for the duration of the retreat.
