THE YOGA Raphaella Rose of Yoga Ishta Style is passionate about her work and aims to create a space (in her classes) where students can use their individual intelligence stored in muscles, emotions and memories to guide them in finding beauty and their own power. She teaches in a friendly and accessible way for students of all ages and levels. Raphaella has practiced yoga for 14 years and taught regular classes and workshops for 7 years in yoga studios in Australia, England (including The Life Centre) and Spain. Influences are drawn from ISHTA Yoga, Anusara Yoga and their teachers Alan Finger, Rachel Zinman and John Friend. THE FOOD: The retreat menu is based on vegetarian and Ayurvedic cooking. Prepared with love by Selina Gullery, also a yoga teacher. The food will include lots of fresh local and organic produce and whole grains to keep us energised for the week. Selina was initiated into intuitive cooking by Swami Samarpanananda Saraswati, who taught her how to continue her yoga practice in the kitchen using the best ingredients, awareness and love. SAMPLE MEAL: Breakfast- Muesli, yoghurt, nuts & seeds, fresh fruit salad, bread, cheeses, jams. Yogi Porridge (millet, spelt with dried fruits and Ayurvedic spices), scrambled eggs or French omelette with fresh herbs. Chai tea. Dinner- Eggplant gratin (w/parmesan), roasted potatoes with rosemary, roasted tofu strips. Chickpea salad with herbs. Main meals will vary every day. Lunches will either be “make your own” from a big spread of food provided (so bring a sandwich box/ tupperware)- this way you can choose exactly what you want to eat! OR: there could be three pre-made sandwich days and three days eating at hut on the mountain. This is a guide only, and is subject to change.
