17th - 22nd September 2019 / Apulia, Italy
Yoga and Nutrition for Energy
Join me in this amazing collaboration with Haoma Retreats where we will explore how Yoga and
Nutrition can support us in living with more energy! We will be exploring yoga techniques and practices
to expand and harness our energy and support the bodies digestion system and natural detoxification
process. The menu will be designed to support and give the digestion system a thorough cleanse and re-
boot. You will come away feeling lighter and brighter and with tools to positively impact your life.
Please see the Press release from Haoma Retreats:
Jess is ISHTA trained and uses mindful flow and the breath to lead her classes. Eastern philosophies of
Ayurveda, Hatha, and Tantra are seamlessly woven into the classes and provide a wonderful context to
the poses. Jess skillfully caters for all levels, students are encouraged to practice in a way that suits
their individual body and spirit, helping bring them each to a place of Sattva (balance). The daily
meditation classes are a wonderful bonus taking the focus inward to a place of rest and restoration.
Charlotte has received rigorous training in nutrition at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London,
bringing with her in depth knowledge of nutrition to the retreat. This means the food will be perfectly
suited to our activities with a menu formulated entirely of plant-based foods and specifically designed to
maximise and maintain energy levels. Eating well is proven to positively impact our energy levels and
we will focus on quality ingredients and good combining to achieve this. Great food is an essential part
of any retreat and we are very lucky to have the wonderful chefs at YopApulia to help create our menus.
The yoga and food programme will be designed to complement each other with yoga techniques to
support health digestion and promote natural detoxification, an integral process to optimising energy
levels. You’ll be given the tools and knowledge from both from the yoga classes and the nutritional
programme to take home and incorporate into your daily lives. After this 5-day retreat you will feel
revitalised and cleansed and return to your lives with full of physical strength and mental clarity.
