Yoga, Restoration & Stillness

Jessie’s morning yoga classes are an inspired journey of full body loosening, limbering, breath awareness and stillness followed by gentle warm up sequences, core awareness and holding postures longer to cultivate strength, flexibility, core stability, correct alignment and awareness. There’s a focus on addressing any issues that arise from our hiking bodies, stretching and strengthening as needed. In our afternoon classes we start with some gentle releasing and stretching out after our big days hiking adventure and then move into restorative yoga postures for deep healing rest, inner connection and stillness. Click here to read more about the yoga.

EUROPEAN YOGA RETREAT TESTIMONIALS

“Having just spent a fantastic week in Spain, I am delighted to recommend Jessie Chapman’s Radiance Yoga Hike Restore Retreat for anyone who wants an active and stimulating holiday. I feel both rested and reinvigorated, and ready to explore the world further. The hiking and scenery is incredible, and the intensity of the daily yoga helped me make some real gains (even as a beginner). The combination of mental and physical challenges and restorative contemplation was perfectly balanced and both teachers were really helpful and knowledgeable. Oh, and the food was delicious! Fabulous week in an amazing part of the world.
Cara – Spain Yoga Hike Restore Retreat

“I highly recommend Radiance Retreats. I’ve been to 4 now in 4 different countries and they have all been amazing experiences and so well organised. The yoga classes cater to all different levels of experience and everyone is so well looked after.”
Lina – Radiance Spain Yoga Hike Restore Retreat

“The joy began at the sight of our Tuscan Villa which proved to be ‘home’ for a week of well balanced strengthening, restoring, rejuvenating yoga and meditation. We enjoyed wonderful walks through the countryside and optional outings. The vegetarian food, facilities and staff were outstanding and Jessie’s guidance and nurturing instruction lead us all through a wonderfully, memorable time. I now have a new strength of heart, body and mind. Thank you so much.”
