Yamuna +Yoga Retreat in Northumberland 13th-16th January 2023

Join Nichi for this very special, fully immersive yamuna body rolling retreat which includes meditation, breathwork and yoga class each morning, two yamuna sessions a day and face rolling and relaxation each evening after dinner. As well as super healthy and nutritious food. The perfect way to start 2022!!

This retreat includes all meals which will be healthy and offer a choice of vegetarian or vegan as well as gluten free. There will be healthy smoothies each morning at breakfast and a goodie bag for each guest on arrival as well as your yamuna equipment- 3 balls, a pump and a booklet.

Each student booking on the retreat will be sent a questionnaire prior to attending asking for details about any injuries, issues they may have and also questions about their general health and wellbeing. As this retreat is for a small group there will be plenty of time to ask questions and get help/ modifications and adjustments.

What are the benefits of Yamuna Body Rolling?

Yamuna body rolling is the perfect sister practice to yoga. We roll on specially designed balls, stimulating the bone and releasing muscles, to create space, realign and soften fascia. Perfect for those with problem areas or injuries.

  • Body Rolling works quickly in a very detailed and focused way.
  • Excellent if you have specific problems/ injuries or recurrent body tension.
  • This is fantastic if you find that you have certain postures that you feel quite stuck with in your yoga practice or havitual tension.
  • Your alignment will improve as well as your ability to breathe more deeply and freely.
  • You will gain a deeper understanding of your anatomy and of your body and how to take care of it.
  • You will feel deeply relaxed and rejuvenated.
  • Your mobility will improve.
  • Your skin will rejuvenate and circulation will improve. Lines will soften from the face massage.
  • Your digestion will improve as we do the abdominal work.

Located on the gorgeous coast overlooking the sea, this luxury three-storey property in Embleton is superbly located in an elevated position with stunning, uninterrupted views over Embleton Bay and Dunstanburgh Castle.

The pretty village of Embleton is ideally placed for exploring one of the most attractive stretches of Northumberland’s Heritage Coastline. A beautiful grassy path runs from the village to neighbouring Craster, alongside the sea and past Dunstanburgh Castle – the largest ruined castle in Northumberland.

Feedback, departures or local walk

” I recently did a one-to-one Yamuna Body Rolling session with Nichi and it really has changed my life! Following a c-section 8 months ago, I had no sensation at all in my abdomen and was really struggling with regaining core strength and emotional stability. After one session with Nichi and a few practices at home, I now have almost full sensation again! I would highly recommend Nichi’s Yamuna classes for anyone in need of physical and emotional healing – she is an incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate teacher…”
