Nichi has been running yoga retreats for the last 19 years. She has organised over 50 retreats, choosing places that she loves that are beautiful, quiet and soothe the soul. She loves the sea, the lakes and the mountains so you can expect to be very close to nature on these holidays. She loves bringing people together and sharing her passion for yoga in wonderful surroundings where you can switch off and deeply relax. Good, healthy food is a strong focus on these retreats- often gluten free and mostly vegan based. You can find out more about Nichi and her teaching here
Nichi’s retreats have been life changing for me over the past few years. As a Type A, always on the go, never able to stop and switch off, Nichi has taught me the value in slowing down, be it through Yoga or meditation.
Nichi’s retreats are a chance to do exactly that, switch off from the rest of the world, fully emerging yourself into rest and relaxation, coupled with the Yang of the Yoga flow.
Missed these retreats so much in lockdown I am delighted they are running again.
